Okay. So. My best friend is turning thirty in October. We have been best friends since we were teens and I really want to make her birthday special.  I usually do a theme for her birthday and make/ buy gifts to match the theme. This year Ive decided to do thirty (mostly small) gifts. I would like to make approximately half of them since she always likes the things I make better than purchased gifts.

Anyway, I would really like to include at least one gift related to each of our favorite TV shows: Sex and the City, Girls, Breaking Bad, and True Blood. The ideas could be related (I thought about doing a framed quote from each to make a display) or they could be unrelated.

Really needing some help with this one. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Embroidered or cross stitch quotes from shows are always good. What about a tutu or some fancy earrings ala sex in the city?

Oh! A crochet or some sort of puncture wound choker would be cool for True Blood.

I like the idea of cross stitching quotes from each show to make a mismatched set. Cross stitch is my first love and favorite medium. <3 Ive just started dabbling in embroidery and like it very much also.

I really like the idea of the choker but I couldn't make one. Sad The tutu is an awesome idea. Of the characters of the show she is the most like Carrie so she would really like that. I wonder if I could find a tutorial online.

It would be good if you can stitch something. You can write his/her name on handkerchief. it is very easy and inexpensive gift. It would be great present for your friend.
