    Movie Gift Box ideas?

    I decided this year to do my 2 sons aged 16 and 11, and one niece aged 16 a movie gift box each.

    So far I am including a DVD, bucket of popcorn, some chocolate orange matchsticks, some other sort of sweets/chocolate and cartons of juice or a couple of bottles of pop. Maybe some snuggly socks too.

    Do you think i need to put anything else in?

    For all the children in the family I am going to give them bags of 'snowman soup' ingredients that i came across while i was browsing the internet!

    Also, we don't usually do adult presents apart from Grandparents but I just thought i may try and make some lemon curd and/or jam for them this year, and maybe a small sponge cake, something like lemon drizzle....

    better get moving hadn't I? lol!

    When it seems the magic slipped away...
    We find it all again on Christmas Day

    I love the movie gift box idea. I may steal it for my daughters. Do you have any unique ideas on how to present/wrap this gift?

    well i'm just thinking i could get a nice christmas box, i've seen some at a reasonable price in a local store.

    i would probably leave the lid off (sit the actual box in it if you know what i mean)and fill with shredded paper or some other packaging, arrange the gifts then wrap it in cellophane if i can find any, or some nice paper.

    otherwise my local garden centre sometimes has decent sized pacakaging boxes they leave out for people to take, so i could get one of those and cover it in paper.

    I have seen plastic popcorn serving boxes. I may try to pick these up. They may have them at the dollar store. Of course now that I want them, I won't be able to find them! Then I would just wrap them up and put a bow on top!

    i found 2 plastic tubs of good popcorn at a local store, they are rather large so will last them a while!

    They are like a bucket with the lid and handle so would be useful after too.
