-- A book light
--A special throw blanket to keep her warm as she reads
--If she likes a particular genre or authors, go to The Internet Booklist and print out complete lists of series and present them as a small booklet so she can keep track of what she wants.

                                    http://www.iblist.com/

-- Fingerless gloves to keep hands warm while allowing her to turn pages.
-- Record her a special voice mail/machine message to use while reading so that she does not have to answer the phone....

   (  Smiley You appear to be post number 1001, btw! I like that for some reason... Wink)

After my sister graduated high school I compiled a College in a Box gift for her before she moved out. I got a big make-up organizer box and stuck little gifts into each of the drawers.
-first aid kit for little accidents
-ear plugs for noisy roommates
-hangover pills for wild nights
-socks for cold winters
-condoms for... condoms
-a precision screwdriver set for fixing her laptop
-a little flashlight for dark paths

So I read through 73 pages of this thread, but I haven't quite found what I'm looking for...  Undecided

My best guy friend is turning 17 soon, and I want to make him a "_____ in a box." I just have no idea as to a theme or what to put in it.

He's a Boy Scout
His favorite colors are green and blue
He's into sports (I know he plays football and soccer, but I think he likes most of them)
He likes:
books (Eragon is his favorite)

movies (comedies, war movies, and "good" movies)

video games

camping

music (any kind but country)


I posted another thread http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=276815.0 a few days ago (it may provide you with a little more info). I wasn't getting a response, so I figured I would try here.

Any ideas?

Don't have time to look through the whole thread, so apologies if this has been done before, but phantom in a box? (stocking)

My friend is especially into Gerard Butler ( Wink) so i figured maybe a stuffie of him...
She has all the various soundtracks and dvds, so that's out...

I'm not a massive phantom fan, so... yeah. A bit stuck!

Smileawaythethunder, how about a mask? you could make one out of paper mache, or cut one of those plain white ones for decorating in half. you could put in a rose.. anything costumey or to do with the opera, i suppose!

i'm here for ideas for my Mum in a box. she's been so wonderful and supportive while i've moved away, and i want to show her how grateful i am. so far i've thought of/bought:

perfect skin - Lloyd Cole and the Commotions CD.
cooking - no idea. possibly something funny like a garlic card.
wine - no idea, again. tiny wine-lover gift? she is not a wineglass-charm or decorated glass sort of lady.   
reading - a book, though i need to choose one.
coffee - chocolate coated coffee beans. 
Newcastle Upon Tyne - hm. i'm thinking a little book of photographs, or some postcards.
elegance (i'm a suck-up) - no idea. maybe earrings, but people buy her earrings for every occasion.
teaching - maybe some 'well done' stickers.
us! - thinking a dorky little family photo with me, my bro, and my stepdad.

it would help if the items were small, since i'll have to take all my presents home in a suitcase. and they need to fit in the box, of course. she doesn't really do decorative or gaudy, so it'd be great if they were edible or practical. any help would be great. thankyou!

I tried reading through all these post but only got to page 24 so not sure if this is already posted or not but I thought I would really like to make a Box for my boyfried for Christmas.

He is into 80's music, Ratt, Skid Row, Quite Riot,

He loves the Books: Outsiders, Tex and all those by S.E. Hinton

I think he wishes he was back in the day he wears a leather jacket and wants to get a jean jacket to cut the sleves off to wear over top of it. I was going to try to find one to include in the box.

So basicly I wanted to do something that had to do with that

Maybe "
"Gresser in a Box"
"80's in a Box" I saw they posted this but it was mostly girly things
"Hair Band in a Box"?

I need help on what to call it and what to put inside hope you guys can help me out.  Grin

I will add some more things If I can think of anything else he likes..

Ok I decided I really wanted to go witht he greaser in a box idea! To be honest I don't really remeber alot about the book "The Outsiders" so if anyone does remember it and has idea please let me know.

This I have came up with
-Comb
-Pomade (Or Hair Product)
-Favorite Model Car (Because Greasers like cars)
-Fake Tatoos
-Knife

I was also thinking of dressing up like one of the characters and giving him a photo of me or dress as a girl greaser not sure how to do this though..

So please help me out if you guys have anymore ideas!  Grin

For cooking, perhaps some super-cool utensil?  If she's into garlic, maybe a garlic press?  Or one year I bought my father, who is a big cook, several different gourmet salts-- pink from the Himalayas, orange from Hawaii, French Fleur de Sel.  That present was a big hit.

For wine, a wine journal so she can keep track of what she's enjoyed drinking?  Or if she travels, a small corkscrew to keep in her suitcase?  I have one in every suitcase that I own so I never have to remember to pack one.  Or if you want to spend a little more money, maybe a gift subscription to some wine magazine.

And I just wanted to compliment you on your choice of music.  Lloyd Cole is one of my all time favorite artists (oh dear-- I'm probably as old as your mother.  I bought Rattlesnakes the day it got released in the U.S.)
