I'm not sure if this goes here, but i can't think of a better place.
So my boyfriend is Jewish and has thus never celebrated Christmas. Which, I eventually realized, means he has never gotten a stocking. I'm not religious but stockings are awesome. So I wanted to make him one and stuff it full of good stuff-- I have a bunch of ideas of what to put in it but I really want to make the actual stocking and I'd prefer if it weren't super Christmas-y. Like, blue or red or black or something, not red and green and uber-festive looking. I don't want to scare him lol. So, I'd kind of like your advice on what it should be. I can crochet but not very proficiently, and knit but i've only ever done scarves. Sewing would be very easy, and I can stencil and do cool stuff like that. Not the best at embroidery i'm afraid, probably because I'm impatient, but i can do quick-ish simpl-ish stuff pretty well. I was thinking maybe like a band-oriented one maybe? Or something plain-ish but cool. Any ideas are welcome
-he likes tons of music but marilyn manson, nine inch nails, nirvana, led zeppelin, pink floyd, grateful dead, stuff like that in particular
-he's a geek-- so star wars, nintendo, computer stuff, 1337, etc. is all good.
-he has two bookcases entirely filled with marvel comics. the essentials. oh yes. i love it.
-we both adore san francisco and sf stuff has all kinds of inside joke meaning for us so that's cool too
also, he's soon to be 15 and i am 15 and our parents would definitely be seeing the stocking so nothing y'know. super-mature. they're fine with most stuff though.
and if any cool ideas come to you as to what to put inside of this stocking, i would be very grateful if you shared
that's about it i guess, thanks in advance for any and all ideas!
