Let your bracelet do the talking.
This would be a perfect gift for a geeky comic book loving friend. You can usually find cheap or discounted comic books in comic book stores or you could use speech bubbles from comic strips in newspapers and magazines. Different comic books have different kinds of speech bubbles. For example, Nightmares & Fairytales has beautiful and ornate speech bubbles whereas Harley Quinn has the normal classic speech bubble.
