Sorry if this has been talked about already, but I read up to page 12 before getting bored. My best friend's birthday is coming up in about a month, and we've been best friend for about 6 years now, and usually my presents are crap-tastic so this year I want to get her something nice... She's really into Lost and Sawyer, so I thought Lost In A Box would be cool. So far I've got:

- a tshirt with a  stencilled quote from Lost.. I'm thinking something from the whole "You taste like strawberries, you taste like fish biscuits" scene.
- a CD with the soundtrack of Lost (does Lost have a soundtrack??) since she's into music..
- the book "Unlock the meaning of Lost: An unauthorized guide"... I don't know if it's any good but I guess she'd enjoy it..
- maybe a cutesy heart-ish picture frame with a picture of Sawyer in it Wink

I don't watch Lost so I'm at a loss here.. it would be so easy just to buy her the season dvds but she has them all! Any suggestions?

Polar bear stuffie! Since you don't watch, believe me, it makes sense. Other than that... I'm at a bit of a loss Wink

the tshirt idea is cute
u could do her a journal/log book like the freaky log books from the pearl that shoot out of the pipe into the middle of the jungle...
something with the numbers-a bracelet or necklace with 4815162342
god i love lost

For Christmas this year I'm gonna make my Dad a "Peace of Mind in a box"
So far, I'm gonna put in
- peace of mind scented oil
- peace of mind incense
- a book on how to obtain peace of mind
- a puzzle piece made to look like a piece of a brain (piece of mind haha)
- a peace of mind cd
any other ideas?

Also any ideas for a skater in a box? My cousin is a skateboarder, so I want to do something along those lines for him (he's also a gamer and a dancer, so I might do something like that).

i've been lurking around the in-a-box thread for a while, and decided it's going to be my theme this year. does anyone have any ideas for "cop in a box" (my dad takes a lot of pride in his job)? thanks!

I totally forgot to take a photo of my Birthday in a Box...

My friend was turning 20 and lives a good 2 or so hours away from me- so in the box, I included:

microwaveable cake (one of those desert delights or something)
musical birthday candle
noise maker (the bottle you pull the string on)
and half blown balloons-

the card said "Since I can't throw you a party, here's your's in a box" or something similar to that.

Any ideas for "Metalhead in a box"? My best friend plays guitar for his band, and he's insanely passionate about it. He's against drugs and drinking, so some of the Rockstar in a Box ideas are out. His favorite band is Emperor, but he already owns a ton of DVDs and shirts and all that, so I'm not sure what else to do. He's also into writing, ancient ruins and all that sort of stuff, Halloween, anything black, etc.
So far, I was thinking doing a "Fisher in a Box" (I call him Fisher) and including a black journal and maybe decorating random pages with lyrics that I know he likes, writings of mine (he always bugs me to show him some of the random things I write), a little picture of this ruin that means "strength", and maybe making him a necklace with a sword because he wears a bunch of meaningful necklaces and collects all sorts of old battle stuff.
Any other ideas?

I made up a couple of "Whole Self Health" baskets as door prizes for an inservice at work.  The items are grouped into three categories:

-Multigrain crackers
-Granola bars

-Mini sudoku electronic game
-Stress ball
-Wooden puzzle

-Relaxing CD
-Scented candles
-Incense sticks & burner

I know there were a couple more items, but I can't remember them all.  All of it is wrapped in colored cellophane and packed into plastic baskets.  Most of the items were purchased at Dollar Tree.  I wanted to include a journal under "soul" too, but I ran out of space and time.

My best friend and I have kind of lost touch.  We see eachother in the halls at school, but we never really get a chance to talk or hangout like we used to.  So, for Christmas I was thinking of making her a 'Sleepover in a Box', complete with everything we need to have an awesome all-nighter together.  Do you think that sounds lame?  I was thinking of including...

-tons of sugar and caffine filled things to keep us up all night!
-possibly a blockbuster giftcard.  Either that, or right before the night I'll just to go to blockbuster and rent as many Johnny Depp movies as I can find for a Johnny movie marathon!  Cheesy  I'm sure she would appreciate that.
-either a pillow or blanket that I'll sew for her.  I'm leaning towards a pillow.
-a bunch of mix CDs to listen to.
-a package of instant brownies or something similar for when we get hungry late in the night
-maybe some sort of simple crafty type thing to do that we can remember the night by.  She has one of those printers to hook up her camera to, so maybe I could bring scrapbooking stuff.  I don't know  Ideas?

I'd appreciate some more ideas for this.
