I've been thinking about what to do about holiday gifts this year (don't be impressed with me; be impressed with Saving Diva. She's the one that planted the idea). Recently, I fell in love with Subversive Cross Stitch, and have been toying with the idea of making cross stitch Christmas presents for my friends as gifts. Only I would design my own using our own weird catch phrases and inside jokes (Like: "True Friendship Means Cutting the Occasional Brake Line").
The problem is, while I find angry/dark cross stitch hilarious, and would hang it all over my house if I could, I'm not sure if it really makes an appropriate gift. I'm afraid it's the type of thing that my friends would open, laugh uncomfortably at, and then stick into a closet until enough time had passed that they could donate it to Goodwill/throw it away without feeling too guilty.
What do you think, Internets? Should I stick to gift cards?
P.S. Wouldn't it be kind of fun if we distinguished the gift type of present by spelling it with two s's, like dessert? Pressent. I like it.
