POLL! Is this a stupid or cute christmas present idea?

Alright, so I have this really special friend of mine (a hippie dude) and we usually talk about the most random sh*t and one night we ended up promising we’d give each other hippie names. He’s always like, have you thought about my hippie name yet? His fathers was Love Child. Ha =)

Anyways, my gift is just a little small something.

I’m thinking of a leather hemp surfer bracelet with his hippie name burnt into it. I’ve heard there are professionals that can imprint stuff on leather..I’ve never done it before.

Is it cheesy? Is it cute? Is it stupid.

Honesty please! He’s a real mellow guy, and means a lot to me. So, I’d appreciate blunt honesty 😉

(This isn’t really a poll, but I need answers LOL)
