Thank you for the gift! Can you recommend an exorcist?

A good friend gave The Dutchwoman and I a piece of artwork she made expressly for us as a wedding present. It was very thoughtful, but the thing is like something out of a horror movie. The missus thinks maybe the friend was trying to curse her so the friend could have me for herself...and I can't rule that out. There is no way we are going to hang it on the wall in our home. Honestly, I feel a bit uneasy just knowing it's lurking, wrapped up in a bag in the closet. But I don't want to hurt the friend's feelings. Do we just hang it up when she's coming over? That would work...until we forget to do it once. I was thinking maybe we should just burn down the house and tell her it was lost with everything else, but then she might make us a replacement. Any ideas? What's the etiquette here?

Trying to find a "unique-gift-a-month" website/club

I'm looking for a UK site that I saw a while back and daftly appear not to have noted down the name. Basically, it was a gift of the month club: you bought someone a subscription, and each month it sent them something. The gifts were quirky and pretty cool; they tended to be things like one-off runs of prints etc. I can't remember the price; in my mind it was about £20 a month, but could be more than that.
