My boyfriend and I are in a long distance relationship -- I live in New York City and he's all the way in North Dakota! We're from completely different worlds -- he has a FARM, for crying out loud. Smiley

He's super creative and wonderful, and this is going to be our first Christmas together, and I really want to get him something as perfect and special as he is. I'm already making him a nice soft green (his favorite color) scarf for the harsh North Dakota winter, but I want to make him something else, too.

Is there anything I can make him for his guitar? Or to reflect his guitar playing or poetry writing? He plays a Fender Stratocaster, if that makes any difference. Don't even ask me anything else on it - I don't know guitars at ALL.

He's super special and important to me. I really want to make this gift amazing.

Thanks, guys.

xoxo

That makes a little difference because it is a BADASS guitar and your boyfriend must be cool Smiley
(I got one for my 10th birthday it was my very first electric guitar-- I was a total rockstar)

What about a handbound journal to write lyrics and poems in? You could glue a few pictures of you two together in it, make a few pages decorated with pics of guitars
Or you could make him masculine guitar/music stationary (to write you hint hint)
My boyfriend is the same type, one year I made him a box to keep quitar picks, his capo, etc and i deocrated it with guitar cut outs and stuff. He loved it.

Thanks so much for the great ideas!!!

He's still a bit shy about his music and things, but I loooove the idea of a personalized guitar pick. It's too good not to do. Smiley

I think I'm going to try the homemade journal thing, too. He'd really appreciate something like that. Maybe (crazy wishful thinking) he'll even write a song about me...  Wink

Okay, there's a snag. WHERE can I find the personalized guitar pick? I want it to say something cute like "Maggi <3 Darrin." I don't want 500 picks lying around, and I don't want the one where only initials are ingraved... Sad
Please help, guys.

http://sterlingguitarpicks.com/ does initials -maybe if you call them you can arrange for more, although they probably have a custom engraving machine that's set up to only do one line. Worth a shot tho.

I'm going to recommend my new favourite obsession for the guitar pick...

PMC.

Yes, that's right!  Precious Metal Clay!  Eee!

http://www.pmcsupply.com/

It would be super easy.  Make yourself a cookiecutter type whatsit, 20% larger than a regular pick.  Roll out your clay, cut out as many picks as you'd like, and I'd suggest making up a stamp of some kind beforehand to press on whatever design you'd like!  Huzzah!  And, if you buy the stuff off ebay, it's dirty cheap, and certainly not twenty bucks for one pick that doesn't even have the design you want.

Good luck!

Haha, you mean $25 worth of picks. Smiley

Thank you so much, though, guys!!

Yeah, I'll keep thinking about what I want to do.

Is there any way I could MAKE a guitar pick?
