Okay, there's a 'lil back story to this. I picked up a book at the dollar store a few years ago, it looked entertaining for sure, It's called The Astrology Gift Guide, are you familiar with it? You should be, it's ridiculously inspiring! The lady that wrote this probably had intended it to be serious buuuuuut her suggestions are so ludicrous I just have to laugh.
I'm trying to knock out all of my Christmas gifts now because I've been a procrastinator every year and find myself finishing/wrapping gifts day of. So, I decided to start on my BF's Christmas gift. But I was stuck! When I found my Astrology gift guide I knew exactly what I was going to get/make for my wonderfully Aquarius man Smiley

A giraffe t shirt!


you see in the book, it says that Aquarius's love gifts that are useful and a supply of colorful T shirts would be great!




My BF and I have a running joke about giraffes so it made me die of laughter when I saw one of the gift suggestions was "wild animal prints"



Craft wise this was my first time bleaching a shirt, it came out a little spotty, but I'm okay with it. I also over sprayed and you can see a bit of the outline of the freezer paper but it happens.




It also mentions they like distinctive hats


so I got 'em one of these guys too (don't worry, I didn't buy it it was free!) I think I"m going to decorate it, but I'm not sure how yet and I'm open to suggestions Cheesy



In case you are wondering what some suggestions were for Aquarius ladies I found these to be just as entertaining





So as it turns out finding a great gift is as easy as knowing someone's birthday! Or something like that haha Thanks for looking! Smiley

I love that shirt!  I've been meaning to try bleaching and I think I will after seeing that.  Also, I want a copy of the book you're working from, haha.

i want that book, NOW!:) i always have trouble finding gifts for friends and it's a tradition in our friend circle to buy ridiculous stuff to each other for birthdays(once we bought a friend tons of yellow stuff (clothes, candy,...). to make the gift even more ridiculous, we didn't give it to her on her birthday, on that day she only got a CD with the song Yellow by Coldplay on it.) this book would be great inspiration.  

and i would also really like a t-shirt like that:) i love giraffes too and i think yours is great.

Thanks everyone! If you are interested in book suggestions you can probably find it on ebay, I bought it for like 50 cents at the dollar store.
If not PM me and I'd be more than happy to tell you some things the book suggests (within reason) for your sign Smiley

I think I want that book... I'm an Aquarius and it sounds about right, the luxurious venues sounds better though. The other stuff is odd.

Either way awesome shirt!
