1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Re: "_____ in a box" gift ideas. on: December 05, 2006 08:25:19 AM
I forgot I had one other idea...
Greenhouse In A Box
1) potting soil
2) seeds
3) a small pot (you can also include paints to decorate the pot if it is just a plain terra cotta pot)  or you can use a chinese food take out box tp put everything in, or i guess really an box that you use could be used to lant the seeds in.
4) small water bottle ( to water the plant)
5) you could even included a small already potted plant

This is such a great idea!!! I love it.
I am also going to use it I think for my Channukah gifts this year.
Purple Hippo you can also add CHannukah Candles or even make your own to put in.  You can really easily make Channukiahs (menorahs) to put in also.  You can check these out https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=137471.0
The road trip emergency box idea is great for your friend.  Also ofcocurse mixtapes and maps and sight seeing suggestions are great reminds me of Elizabeth town.  Wasnt such a fan of that movie but the stuff she gave him for the roadtrip was magnificent.

So here are some ideas I have:
Pirate in a box
Summer in a box
Winter in a box
Or even have a 4 season set
With different apparel ie hats, sunglasses, scarves etc.. for the different seasons
3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Make your own Channukiah (Menorah) for Hannukah on: December 04, 2006 08:37:50 PM
This is such an easy and cheap way to make a channukiah or menorah.  All of the materials can be bought at teh hardware store.

  • The base is a tile.  You can various shapes, sizes, or colors  Or just use a plain one and use permanenet markers or tile/cermaic markers/paint to decorate.
  • The candle holders are nuts.  Just bring a candle with you to the store for size.  it is best to huy nuts a little bigger than the candle fits because nuts that seem to be the right size can be difficult to actually get teh candle to fit without it braking.
  • Glue the nuts on with crazy glue, ultimate glue, gorilla glue, etc..
  • For the shamash either set teh nut aside from teh rest or you can use more than one to make it higher than the rest.
