To go with the Coconut idea: Party City had coconut cups with two pieces that come together much like the ones in the movie... my sister and I found them in the store and "rode" to find out mother    Grin  Maybe if you could find them.. it would be such a random, dinky present at first and then he'd open it   Smiley

I wish my sister would buy me great gifts like that!.. it's a great show by the way - I saw it last January - I was crying in laughter most of the time.

Why do we play with fire?
Why do we run our finger through the flames?
Why do we leave our hand on the stove,
although we know we're in for some pain?

You could make one of those books-turned-boxes, you know, with the pages glued and an opening cut inside, you know?  And make a new cover for it labeling it the Holy Hand Grenade bible, or whatever it was called.  Then put the tickets inside with a little (jazzed up Christmas bauble?) Holy Hand Grenade...

My family does this when we have paper gifts to give:
Get a big box, fill the bottom with heavy cans... such as spam... then put an envelope on the top with his ticket in it. That way... they expect something huge.. and it's paper... and it's sooooo funny. Also: duct tape makes everything harder to open... also hilarity. But we're a little sadistic obviously  Grin

That's hilarious! Smiley

I love all the ideas SO much, guys. Thank you!

The tickets just came in the mail, yesterday. I think I'm going to do the big box idea, fill it with a bunch of packing peanuts and newspaper, and then then place a single empty Spam can in there, with the tickets inside.

I really want to do something with coconuts, too, though. And it'd be super-fun to modify a stuffed bunny to be the crazy man-eating one from the movie... Smiley

Thanks again for the awesome ideas. This is going to be the coolest Christmas ever.

this may be too late. but what ab

oh never mind- it's for christmas... silly me.
anyways- what about putting the tickets in a grail- type cup tied to a (plastic) holy hand grenade of antioch? you could spray paint the grenade gold- you can get them at dollar general and stuff in the kids section...
