My friend in Connecticut has so much fun making these needlepoint ornaments. She always ties them into a gift for her family. For example- her son’s favorite team is the Rangers so she gave him the ornament with tickets to a game. Another child received the yellow taxi with a check to try to cover taxi rides in Manhattan for 6 months. Her husband received golf clubs one year, and her other daughter was given a gold necklace with the golden pear ornament. The Budweiser can celebrated when her last child turned 21-not sure what the gift was!
