need help brainstorming for xmas gift

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I just had an idea for xmas gifts for my twin 6 year old boys. They love keys, secrets, intrigue. So I am thinking of getting locked boxes and putting stuff inside, like treasure, or a treasure map, or magic wands or potions. Any ideas on finding locked boxes? Locked wooden boxes? I will probably buy those but make stuff to put inside. Ideas are welcome!

Hope these can at least get you started.

Great idea! You could make them book boxes like this:http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php...ng_id=34134293 they are super easy to do yourself.
