So I made "in a box" gifts for my three roommates for Christmas.
For my one roommate (who, ahem, is no stranger to a good time) I made "Night Out in a box." I put in travel size Band-aids, Tylenol, and Shout wipes, a shot glass, a "hottie whistle," the movie Mean Girls, mints, a little clutch I made, a card with her address (for the nights when she has a little too much Jungle Juice), and two other cards- one with cheesy pick-up lines, and one with even cheesier rejection lines.
For my roommate who was REALLY
stressed out this semester, I made "Relaxation in a box." I put in a stuffed animal, a Jack Johnson cd, a Peter Pan coloring book (I had to, her name is Wendy and her brother's name is Michael, and her sorority nickname is Nana, lol), crayons, soothing sleepytime tea, aromatherapy socks (they smell like peppermint), a doorhanger I made that says "I'm either sleeping, studying or avoiding you," and a scented candle.
For my roommate who is living in the wrong generation, I made "80's Child in a box." I put in crazy socks, white sparkly sunglasses, pixie sticks, Top Gun (an essential 80's movie and the only time either of us can stand Tom Cruise), earrings I made (with lips, padlocks, and keys charms), two shot glasses-only one's in the picture, crazy eyeshadow, a felt clutch I made, and one of those expanding towels with a flamingo on it.
In each box I put in buttons and a card that I made. (Oh how I love my button maker.) I had a lot of fun finding and making the stuff for the boxes. So I just wanted to say thanks to all the people on this post that I got ideas from. And sorry this is so long and wordy, lol. Thanks again.
