I work in a paint your own pottery studio (also a bead your own jewelry studio) and every year we do a secret santa. Our boss decided to add a twist to it this year, we have to MAKE the gifts, and nothing can be pottery or beaded. Now, I have no problem with this at all, I've dabbled in a little bit of everything crafty, but I think it's pretty unfair to my coworkers since not everyone is crafty, infact I'm really the only one. Anyway, this year I got my coworker Chris and while I love the kid, I have no clue what to make him. He's 16 (the youngest of us all) and is pretty much the all around perfect highschool kid. He's on the wrestling team, big into school spirit, on SGA, friends with everyone (it's a huge joke, that he knows at least 5 people in any establishment at any given time in the town), he is never without a date for any function, and he's smart and takes advanced classes. He's the kid you love to hate, but still the sweetest and nicest 16 year old boy I have ever known. What the hell am I supposed to make him?
The only things I can think of are either pj pants (cause they're easy to make) or an ipod cozy in his school colors. I just think thats too generic. I'm usually really good at thinking up gifts for anyone I don't actually know. Hopefully there is someone out there with this same talent who can help me think of something . . .
