An empty Kleenex box and dollar bills. Tape the dollar bills together end to end with Scotch tape. Obviously the more dollar bills the greater the “WOW”. Stuff them in the Kleenex box with just one dollar sticking out of the box. It’s fun to watch someone’s eyes grow wider as they pull out the dollars that go on and on. Make a tag that says: ”Don’t “blow” it all in one place. The End. Happy Birthday.
He built a box, and she painted our last initial and their wedding date on it. They put in two unread love letters to each other about why they fell in love, a nice bottle of wine from the year they started dating, and nailed the lid on the box. They promised that if things ever get too hard and their love starts to fade, they will open the box, drink the wine, and read the letters they wrote to each other, reminding them of how much their love means and to never give up.
"my mom has that on a plate!" @ashleyHancock (1) Buy plates from Dollar Store, (2) Write things with a Porcelain 150 Pen, (3) baked for 30 mins in the oven and it's permanent. It would be fun to have birthday plates for each kid and a fun way to give Christmas gifts too... Maybe trace kids hands, put a phrase or poem inside. Then place baked goods on top... Hmmm!
