Okay, I'm totally copying jenautomatica who's making Michigan in a box. Just wanted to give her credit. XD

My best friend just moved to Utah from California and he misses it A LOT. So I want to send him a gift to cheer him up, but I'm not sure what.

I live(and he used to live T___T) pretty close to LA, so I want to include some hollywood-type stuff in there, but I don't know what to use that won't be too horribly expensive. I'm kinda low on cash. I would definitely prefer to make stuff for him than buy it.

All the stuff I can think of for Hollywood are for girls, but you could also do a beach themed box. That's always fun!

IN-N-OUT is a great idea! I love IN-N-OUT so much!

You could get him a pink boa and those shades.

Oh yeah something from in-n-out for sure. I always forget we're the only ones who have it.

And I'll definitely find him some shades.

Thanks for the suggestions. ^__^

A bunch of tiny toy cars from dollar store, like a traffic jam in a box!

A bottle with a label "authentic LA Smog"   Grin

Somehting from Carney's.... maybe a bunch of touristy postcards

A twig or stone from his favorite hiking trail!  Or street he used to live on

A flip book of something... a slow speed chase?  oh!! Surfers!!!

I wonder if LA weekly delivers out of state like other 'big' papers?
