actor in a box?
similar to the celebrity one but classier? lol!
dark sunnies
maybe a mocked up show 'program' with her name in it (you can make the acts like "infancy, primary school..." if you want to make it a bit keepsakey and photos of her and u in the "actors'" photos bit)
a feather boa or one of those dressing gowns with marabou on the sleeves thats the stereotyped outfit for an actress in her dressing room
a skull (with  attached: "alas poor yorick (sp?)....")
something by stanislavsky on method acting (or similar)
a play by someone famous and/or a guide to shakespeare book

A slightly abstract "Magic in a box":
  • Harry Potter books / DVDs / paraphernalia
  • A wizard hat (who doesn't like dressing up?)
  • A unicorn/mermaid/magical creature ring/magnet/coin purse
  • Tarot cards
  • A spell book
  • Halloween candy
  • A magic wand

This is an amazing idea!  I have two ideas for Christmas:

For my stepdad who is a big hunter/fisherman
OUTDOORSMAN IN A BOX!

And for my boyfriend who just started a band:
ROCKSTAR IN A BOX!

But I'm having trouble thinking of some things to go in here....anyone have any good ideas?

hippy in a box: 
     +  incense sticks/burner
     +  fake flower (probably a daisy would work best)
     +  cd or record by marley, the doors, etc.
     +  little buddha figurine or candle (i know alot of hippy types who are buddhist)
     +  yoga mat/intructional video/booklet
     +  random patches for jeans or backpack (if he uses one)
     +  circle sunglasses (a la ringo)

you could rename this if he doesn't want to be called a hippy, like "peace & love in a box."  i'll look up some more ideas online, i really like this theme for some reason.
