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.

 If it is a classic friend, consider assembling a photograph album filled with pictures and commentary during your friendship. Its a stroll lower memory lane! Birthday celebrations really are a advance in existence, but we're where we originate from. I love this method since it lightly reminds us to appreciate the folks within our lives. Plus, together with your commentary, it adds an individual touch theyll love!

A T-Shirt or a cup with a unique print also seems like a good idea. The point is you can choose whatever relevant is for him. I like to make such presents, they can be very personal and touching if you get the right print. SVG Files for Cricut is the service I use and it's very convenient and cheap. There are a lot of unique designs in here, so try to check it out, you'll definitely find something you're going for. Shirts, cups, vinyl stuff... You can go as far creative as you want!
