So I used the "_____ in a box" gift idea with my "Basketball Star in a Box Kit". I gave it to my best friend for Christmas and she loved it! Here's what I put in the box:
+ a note
+ a mini handmade book with inspirational stuff in it
+ homemade basketball-shaped cookies and a star-shaped cookie (because she's a "star"
+ a sugar cookie I made with a gingerbread man cookie cutter -- I "painted" on her basketball uniform with icing, added blue twinkly sprinkles for her blue eyes, etc.
+ a basketball tin (for the cookies)
+ her favorite Gatorade, Strawberry Kiwi
+ a towel
+ a water bottle
+ chocolate basketballs.... yummy
+ a notepad
+ some Orbit gum
As you can imagine, the box was pretty full....... it took some effort to get it closed!
She really liked it though, so I'm happy.
Sorry, I don't have a camera, so no pictures
Maybe that problem will be solved next Christmas!
