Merry Christmas to all fellow MW'ers! Calling on all those creative minds...
Here's the scoop, aka DILEMMA:
as a Christmas gift to my husband, I'm surprising him with a 1-week vacation to Disney World in January. Can I please get your thoughts and ideas on how I can "wrap" his gift and present it to him on Christmas Eve?
Thank you, thank you!
Do an Adventure Book like from "Up" and on one page write "Our Next Adventure" and have tickets or pictures of Disney World. - IDVandalSkipperCM

Several years ago, my daughters' Christmas present was a trip to Disneyland. I bought those magnetic letters for kids (the brightly colored ones that you put on the fridge), pulled out the letters that spelled "Disneyland" and wrapped them up in twos and threes. Then they had to shuffle the letters around until they figured out what the present was. - jmgphx

You could always make him a shirt saying "I'm going to Disney World!" Wrap it up and see his reaction he reads it, by the way, awesome present!! - sleepyhead

Clever! Hmm, JUmBO Sharpie?? LoL.
& thanks, hoping his 1st response won't be, " how much did this cost." ; ) - FrankenweenieVelinee 259.8 #907 2:10PM
It's lame, but I'd probably just wrap a nicely printed travel itenary up...maybe in a gigantic box. Oooooh I also saw somewhere they had a big box filled with Disney helium balloons and when they floated up the paper was attached on the bottom. - Linzee

I like this! Thank you so much, the juices are flowing now... - FrankenweenieVelinee 259.8 #907 2:11PM
Wrap a cute Disney picture frame with a message relating to your trip! That way, the picture frame can be for holding a picture of you two on your trip. - BelleintheTARDIS

We did this for our kids last year and personalized a T-shirt telling them to pack their bags our family was going to Disney World with pictures of the parks and the dates we were going. Have a great time!! - MyHeartbelongstoBeast
