In addition to this http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=24173.0, I went a little crazy this Valentine's Day and ordered an ipod for my BF.  He will be very surprised and prolly think the book I made is all I'm giving him.  I am trying to think of a cool way to present it.  Maybe wrap it in a giant box and put a smaller box inside, etc?  Send him on a scavenger hunt?  Ideas please.  Thx

I am all about tricking people when giving gifts. Maybe make a lame mixed tape for him and let him open it. Then have him open the Ipod, which is so much cooler.

Or, maybe make a card with a drawing of a pea-pod wiht eyeballs as peas?

Or do a similar scavenger hunt/game that uses the whole "eye" "pod" thing.

If you're willing to take it out of the box it came in, you could load it up with some music, then put it in one of those heart shaped boxes full of chocloate (be sure to include Nirvana's 'heart shaped box')
Take out just enough chocolate to fit the iPod.  That would be cool.

You could also hollow out another book to put the ipod in, wrap them up with ribbon or a belt like the olden days Smiley

Ooh I like the chocolate box idea.  Thats a good one...

Another way could be to get a box of his fave cereal, open it and put the ipod in (outside the cereal pack) as a prize!!!!
You could even make a little blurb on the package that gives a hint about a prize inside! That would be fun!

I definitely recommend the "small box inside a larger box" idea. I did that once after my boyfriend asked me to a dance (I wrote "yes" on a scrap of paper, put it in a small box, put that in a larger box and so on and so forth). It was fun decorating all the boxes - I filled them with confetti, fake glitter snow, craft jewels, Hershey's kisses, etc. and then wrapped each box in a different wrapping paper. He said it was a lot of fun to open and he really appreciated it.

Faith and begorrah...
