I got my younger brother tickets to see Spamalot on Broadway, with me, for Christmas. He doesn't want me to spend a lot of money on him; the tickets were expensive. I hope he's not too angry with me when he sees them...

I want to do a whole day in Manhattan with him: Spamalot, lunch at the Olive Garden in Times Square, maybe a visit to Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum...

What's a good way to give tickets like these? I want to do something really creative. I thought of sticking them in an empty video game box (he's gaming-obsessed), or maybe sticking them in a small box, which would go in a bigger box, which would go in an even bigger box, and so on...

But that's not creative enough. I'd love to do something "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" themed, if I could. You guys are SO creative; PLEASE help me out, here!!

You could make a replica of the castle that opens...or didn't they make a trojan bunny...you could make on and put the tickets in that...

what about a shrubbery? you can buy plants in wooden pots at the grocery shops and then in there you could have the tickets?

I saw Spamalot and it was great. You can make an evil bunny cutout with a bloody mouth, and place the tickets underneath it on a table. Use an index card to write 'beware' next to the bunny. Then put it in a place where he would look.

I love the Spam tin idea too!

If he already owns a copy of the movie, you can be sneaky and use the box for that to stash the tickets in - he'll be really surprised when he opens it thinking it's something he already has to find the tickets inside.

You could also use an empty coconut . . . of course if you do that he may want to take it with him for some audience pariticpation Wink

You're bother's lucky to be receiving such a great gift - it's a great play!

We got my dad tickets for his birthday last year, and we actually told him that we were sorry but we just couldn't get them in time before they sold out. So... we gave him a variety of things. We got him a little stuffed bunny, a crown, and coconut halves (we went to the party store and picked up a coconut bra and just cut the strings). And then we gave him a card that was like "sorry it's not the real thing, but it sure is close" or something along those lines. Thennn we gave him another card that said "just kidding!" and stuck the tickets in there. I think he had more fun playing with the coconuts, but my dad also has the maturity of a five year old when it comes to toys. It's not too creative, but hey. just thought I'd share.

I like the Spam tin idea!!

Ooh yeah! Coconuts are a great idea! I have coconut halves at home. I think we got whole coconuts at a grocery store. My dad cut it in half with a saw, and lo and behold, coconut halves to bang together! We scraped out the meat with a spoon, and used it for soup.

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
