Think back to five years ago. We were texting without emojis. We were FLYING BLIND. The only people who used smiley faces were our mothers, and even then, they were spelled out, AOL chat room style, like this: :), ;), >:(. There was no way to accurately convey our enthusiasm for going out drinking (beer and wine emojis, coupled with the two girls dancing or that mysterious lady in the red dress repeated 17 times) or just how murderous we felt about our jobs (the knife and gun emojis).
Now, almost everyone uses emojis, even if it's just every once in awhile. But there are some people (you know who you are) who take emojis overboard, and for those people, it only makes sense for them to be in possesion of these No Way Emoji Framed Prints ($32, Furbish Studio), which are honest-to-God watercolor renderings of emoji greatest hits. For the girl who uses an emoji in every single text she sends, even if it's when she's giving you directions to her apartment or telling you her grandmother died, these are the perfect gift.
