My friend's a newbie who claims he doesn't have any artistic skills (not that he needs them) and wants to know what he can gift. I've been once before but thought I'd put it out there. Any ideas?

I've got a dozen sewn bandanna-like head scarves with flame patterns. I also got a dozen flashy LED heart-shaped pendants, which I hear frequently end up as MOOP. (I'll probably end up wearing these so I don't get hit by a mutant vehicle or drunk/stoned bicyclist at night.) Any other suggestions?
Can anyone figure out an easy way to get them open without breaking them?
I've just been cutting them open...not Maker-Friendly! They make good lightsources for little fiber-optic widgets.
Find forgotten art and let the artists know when you like it.
There are gems hidden in the cracks of the city.
Appreciation is the medium of the commerce of Black Rock City.
Especially for art.

If you must worry about gifts, there are lots of suggestions if you search here for that very topic, or see
for suggestions for second timers.
