Ok, so my dad and I have a running thing going as my nickname for him is 'Monkey' or 'Monkeyhead'. So, as a half joke gift, I'm gonna give him a monkey in the box.

What should I put in a 'monkey in a box' gift!!?

So far I have decided:

A nice monkey statue with an engraved message
Banana lollies
A fine tooth comb for monkey nit-picking Tongue
A monkey mix CD Cheesy

Can you think of anything else!?

Okay.. monkeys..

- Monkeys in a barrel game - that one where you have to pick up monkeys with other monkeys and make a chain.  I've seen it at my local dollar store, so you can get it cheap.
- The bananas out of a package of Runts?
- A cheezy framed photo of a monkey 'grinning' - perhaps a girlfriend monkey?
- A stuffed monkey made of felt - they're super easy to make
- A CD case for the monkey mix CD with a monkey on the cover
- A book on monkeys
- A blank book with a monkey on the cover (make it yourself)
- If you have access to clay and a kiln, a ceramic monkey made of pinch pots is super easy - I made one for a friend once - an upside down pinchpot for the body, a sideways pinch pot for a big mouth (rim makes lips), another upside down pinch pot to form the rest of the head, two tiny pinch pots for ears, and a coil tail
- banana bread or banana muffins, if you bake
- a bottle of shampoo relabeled to be monkey shampoo?

Okay, maybe I'm starting to grasp at straws... hope this helps

I've bought my brother an air freshener that had a picture of a smoking monkey on it. You could buy a normal air freshner and glue a picture of a smoking monkey on it.

Wow....I guess my gift problems have finally been solved!  Cheesy

Even though we've been best friends for... *counts* 5 years, I never know exactly what to buy/make for my friend. She's really into basketball though (on the varsity team...... woo!  Tongue Grin) so I might make her a "B-Ball Star in a Box."

It could include:

+  Basketball-shaped chocolate balls
+  A book about basketball or famous players
+  Gatorade
+  Basketball-shaped pillow
+  Gift certificate towards Foot Locker
+  Basketball charm/pendant
+  CD with "pumping-up" beats to listen to before games
+    Huh Undecided Huh  any other ideas??  Undecided Huh Undecided

Ideas so far:
-Simplicity pattern scrubs..awesome fabric
-stenciled tank with red cross and kitty
-stethiscope(sp)
-stuffed kitty with bandage or something..
any ideas?

What about Pet-In-a-Box? Create some little creature, maybe a rock with google eyes and some yarn fur..? Decide what this creature must eat- a little container of M&M's, or Cheerios? Then a little teeny bed for the "pet", and a booklet of how to care for it and information about it, and whatever else your imagination may dream up for this "pet".

Vet-tech in a box:

You could make a bag, line it with more of the cool scrubs fabric, and stencil the same design as on the tank: voila, she's got a bag that matches her work outfit and her dayclothes!  Also, you could go for some jewelry with a pet theme: I stick "cat bead" into www.firemountaingem s.com and I get... well, actually, a lot of cat's eye type beads, but a good number of beads with a cat theme (and I've still got a good many pages of "cat bead" results to flip through).  Bird bead pulls up more, dog bead... doesn't, but I'm not really looking in-depth.

Almost every time I've worked with animals (rescue work, not vet), I've needed band aids.  Perhaps a more experienced vet would be better at avoiding scratches from panicked animals and the like, but she's only a vet in training.  Smiley  Maybe a little first aid kit (in an altoids tin or a MnM's minis tube) would be cute?

As for the basketball one, it might be cool to make her a purse or bag of some sort in the shape of a basketball (or her team colors) to hold all the rest of the stuff.   You could even try cutting up an old, deflated basketball for the cause, though you'd need an industrial-type machine to sew it.  Hmm.

yeah, good idea for putting the bandaids in the vet tech in a box. i work at a vets office, and i get scratched a lot by nervous kitties!  Maybe u could even put some catnip or dogtreats in there, for her to give to the patients? Oh- and a cat ear hat never goes wrong! Or a bottle of candies, but put a fake label over i that says pills for "Cat Scratch Fever". hehe

What would you put in a "girlfriend in a box"?
A photo of someone famous (like britany Spears, if they have a crush on her), a lillte bottle of perfume (or spray the box so it smells pretty), some love letters and poems, a velentine, a mixed CD with love songs, maybe some hair things and make up (so they can be left out on the dresser or in the bathroom), a cute little pink pillow...anything that would give the appearance of a girlfriend being there...and a movie like Jerry Mcguire! (I love that movie!) And some napkins (most girls use napkins!) and some wine glasses! A silk rose would be a nice touch! And some cute panties to leave on the floor! (yes, my girlfriend always leaves such a mess...and she never picks up he panties from the night before!)  Wink
