Tween boys are crazy hard to shop for, yes? They’re not quite in the throes of the “I’m too good for a gift” stage, but they’re really good at hiding their excitement for absolutely anything that exists. Enter “Stitch the Stars” calendar kit from artist Heather Lins ($24). With glow-in-the-dark embroidery floss (which is OMG the most genius invention in the world) and a super simple poke-and-stitch concept, your favorite tween can get an introduction to embroidery while stitching his own zodiac sign.
Or, you know, the zodiac signs of his many future girlfriends.
Printed with glow-in-the-dark ink on heavy cardstock, the kit arrives in a muslin bag with an embroidery needle, floss and an instruction sheet. (Instruction sheet for tweens themselves not included.)
