"SEX, DRUGS & ROCK 'N ROLL"
-I took three shoe boxes and painted "sex", "drugs", and "rock 'n roll" and filled them up with fun things that went with those themes.  (Like condoms, toys, etc in the "sex" box....)

"

This may be a dumb question, but...Do you get asked for ID if you try and buy condoms or no?  I love this idea and it would be perfect for my friend, but I"m only 16 and very scared about getting weird looks from the check-out person at the drugstore  Shocked

Jungle/Forest in a box: gummi bears, mini plastic animals, naybe an animal doll, i dunno

Sleepover in a box (good for like a 11 yr old): nailpolish, toe seperators, a little (maybe homemade) pillow, a little truth or dare book, popcorn and a dvd(or giftcard at blockbuster) rubberbanded together, makeup, slippers, blank invitations, instructions for light as a feather and other fun tricks...

Nah, you won't get asked for ID, I think of it this way, if they ask everyone for ID, younger people are going to have sex anyway without protection, and they'd be multiplying like rabbits!  Oh and don't worry about getting weird looks, they sell condoms all day, so they don't think anything of it haha.

I love all these ideas! I'm going to make some for Chanukah and if I can fit them into the tiny chinese takeaway boxes I've bought that'd be great!
Here are the start of my ideas and anything you can think to add would be great!

For my 2 best friends:
CHANUKAH IN A BOX
* some chocolate coins
* a small plastic dreidel
* Huh

For my boyfriend
Huh - Something to do with music, or Judaism or romance?

For my brother
Huh - Something to do with computers, anime or general geekiness

For my parents
Something along the lines of RELAXATION IN A BOX (it's been stressful) but they have heat packs and we can't use incense cos of Dad's allergies so I'm a bit stuck for ideas!

For my grandparents
Not sure, perhaps "FAMILY IN A BOX" with tiny framed photos of all the family

Ideas? Additions? Help Please!!

My boyfriend actually received a "rockstar" kit for his birthday - not quite G rated but he is a musician and it was a total hit. it included a bottle of Jack Daniels, a quick how-to on managing your career (courtesy of google i'm sure) a can of that energy/liquid crack drink that is actually called "rockstar", some fake drugs (powdered sugar, a razor blade and small mirror - you could do oregano and rolling papers or you just do candy smokes)...i can't remember what else. i think some gold aviator sunglasses, some e-mer-gen-c packets, a good black sharpie for signing autographs, a rolling stone or spin for tracking your album on the charts, fake tattoos...the possibilities are endless  Roll Eyes

this whole "in a box" concept is great.  seriously.

well i don't think this would work for your 28 yr old friend, but for anyone else here who might be looking for ideas for college friends, what about "[insert university name] in a box"? 

for example, a friend of mine goes to stephen f austin university, so i'm thinking about "sfa in a box."  it would probably have those cute mini bottles of liquor (basically any liquor store has them), maybe a little stuffed lumberjack (the mascot), coupons or gift certificates to the chicken place (i forget the real name of the place, but every student there pretty much lives on that restraunt), hangover-curing pills (do those really work?), and maybe some things to do with her major (accounting - calculator keychain, pocket protector [lol], etc).

Small world! My best friend did her undergraduate studies there and now doing her masters at SFA! I might have to "borrow" this idea for her Christmas present. Thanks for sharing!  Grin
