Well, my present to my boy is a ski trip (a day one, unfortunately, I don't have the dought to do overnight) for the two of us. I don't want to actually buy the lift ticket yet because so far, the snow situation isn't looking too good (it's been in the 50's), so I'm thinking of making it like a cute little "coupon" or something... But I'd like a creative way to present it. Suggestions, anyone?live in the north east? i ask caus im in maine and the other night it rained 6+ inches of snow right off the ground and today i went for a walk WITHOUT my coat! ?? 50's in jan...weird
anyways! for the ski coupon thing (i understand...50's!!! ) you could work it into the card, write a silly poem or something. or if theres some small ski gear piece he needs, like gloves or ... i dont really know what skiers need... but you could make/buy him that and tuck the coupon/poem in with it.
I live in northern West Virginia (which is a southern or northern state depending on whom you ask) and the trip is going to be to Wisp in Maryland.
I like your idea about making it in a piece of ski gear... I'll have to do some investigating and see what he might need. He loses hats like there's no tomorrow. Anyway, thanks for the idea, I might that.
my boyfriends a snowboarding fanatic, and he always complains about what an expensive hobby it is....for christmas i got him a lift pass and put it inside a travel coffee mug with some hot cocoa, candy canes,a pair of gloves, and some handwarmers (all cute winter stuff) it was veryy cheap...got it all at the dollar store, expect for the hand warmers..i stole those from my house...lol
perhaps u could put the coupon u make in an arangement like that?? my bf loved it and thought it was super cute and creative.
good luck!! ur boy is very lucky
