A box full of "candy"

Scroll down for finished project.
***********************************
My guy hates candy, but I love the idea of giving him little gifts in a candy box. I already have an empty candy box that I've been saving.

Here's a picture of the box I will be using.



I was hoping that you craftsters could help me think of small objects to put inside. There are 12 small spots, so I need 12 little items.
I thought of:
A mini book
mini card
small keychain
sticker
picture of us

Any better ideas?  Grin Thanks!

*********************************

I've finished my gift, and wanted to share. Thanks to everyone for the ideas. I was actually surprised that some things didn't fit very well... like a matchbox, for instance. You really have to think small!

A box full of "candy"


Top row left to right: Love coupon (left blank), "wish anklet", peppermint
2nd row l to r: Memory card for his digital camera, Resident Evil keychain, sculpey cheese
3rd row: I am Loved pin, felt cat, heart painted bottlecap magnet
Bottom row: Felt fortune cookie, "I love..." origami book, puka shell necklace

Close-up

Love coupon left blank, Felt cat, crocheted anklet ("wish" anklet), heart bottlecap magnet, "I love..." origami book, and a maroon felt fortune cookie.

The little book just says I love....
...your big, brown eyes.
...your laugh.
...your silky hair.
...your kindness.
...you!

I hope that he likes it!

cuff links.
shoe laces
one of those portable hard drives.
a wish necklace (a cute tiny charm on a piece of thread... you make a wish when you put it on and when it breaks the wish will come true.)

Depending on how intimate your relationship is, maybe fun condoms?

A magnet, a button or pin, mini flashlight, a ball, an army man or something similar, bazooka gum.

Check out some bubble gum machines, they have tiny things.

This is a fun and unique idea!

A monster made from a pom pom, condoms, my man would love a flash drive or memory stick for his camera, mini sharpie, folded love letter, paper crane, cootie catcher with the fortunes being things to do if you know what I mean.  Tongue (Hey, I like that last one, I think I'll use it myself...LOL)

Oh, how terrible for you.  I guess you'll just have to buy yourself a box of chocolates; eat all the good ones and throw the bad ones away.  It's a sacrifice; but I guess thats what you need to do.

Depending on whether he uses them or not: Tie tacks or tie pins, money clip, lapel pin, toll coins, rings, hemp necklace/or bracelet, key to your heart, etc...

Weird little coupons of cute things you could do for him... Small representations of things he wants (think, that car he always talks about that he can't afford... get him a toy one!)... or maybe something else related to his favorite hobbies or job, or candles/incense for your romantic nights together?
