So my boyfriend's birthday is this Friday. I have plans to bring him to something that I know he will really love (outdoor activity type of thing) but I have no idea how to present it to him!

What is a crafty way to give him this day trip as a gift? At the very least, I will make a card with its theme, but I want to do something craftier than that (not putting down paper crafters here - that's just not my forte). I would like him to be able to keep whatever it is for a while after to have the memories.

Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

What is the activity?

A small "Memory Box"... a little shadow box or lidded gift box with a collage of trinkets/photos glued inside that relate to the special experience and a little home-made gift card for the adventure?

Or a nice photo frame, with a note where the picture would go, promising a photo you'll take of the experience?
