Some people put their favorite photo into "a cross stitch pattern program" like PCStitch or transfer it "using their computer screen as a light box" onto graph paper and then use a block of fabric for each stitch color that is represented.  You can make a very real representation of a personal photo and a design that is completely your own.

The twelve days of Christmas by Brandywine Designs

Look in the mother's day project. Lots of other quick craft ideas for gifts on the site. Neck pillows --

This little pillow filled with rice
Is such a comforting device.
Microwave for 1 to 2 minutes on HIGH
And kiss those aches and pains good-bye.

Apply it to a troubled spot.
The heat will ease the pain a lot.
Or warm those little toes so cold.
You'll find this nice to have and hold.

Or freeze it for a little while
And fix that boo-boo up in style.
Instead of a compress made of ice,
Use this little pillow filled with rice.


When from too much work or play,
Aches and pains may come your way,
Just pop me in the microwave,
Two short minutes is all I crave.
Or store me in your freezer bold,
If your boo-boo needs some cold.
Then slip me in my little sleeve,
Your aches and pains I will relieve.\

, have fun!
