Gift ideas for surprise dream cruise?
For christmas were giving my DD, DS and there cousins a dream cruise in Jan, I wanted to do something cute to give them xmas morning to tell them, any ideas? I was trying to find some type of photo template that I could insert there faces but no luck online so far. Thanks!

Maybe you could make a short video telling them the surprise. Wrap it up with a note attached that says play me or something.

Have you been reading the recent thread about a man surprising his wife with a cruise for her birthday. People have been giving a few good suggestions on that thread. I liked the one about creating treasure hunt. I haven't heard of any templates though. :)

We are going to surprise our kids with our January cruise also. I bought a SteamBoat Willie ornament and will hang it on the tree Christmas eve. The last present they unwrap will have a little poem like this.

Search for the ornament on the tree
And if you find it you will see
There is a trip planned for you
Try to figure out what you will do.

I am still working on it but thats the gist of it.

We are doing the treasure hunt & we have a model of the Magic as the "treasure." We will be "opening" it Christmas Eve. I CAN'T wait!!!

ETA: We are going on our cruise in Feb.

We did a scavenger hunt 2 years ago to announce to the kids (mine and their cousins) that we were going to disney world (cousins first trip) it was great, my sister planned it, and I just knew that the older kids would figure it out with some of the clues, but no! They ended up in the den with a huge box waiting on them, when the ripped the wrapping off, a GIANT Mickey balloon floated out, the squeals were priceless!!

We did a cruise last year and for Christmas we gave my girls three small boxes:

(1) matchbox car
(2) a picture of a girl pointing at her rib
(3) dried kidney bean

They spent most of the day trying to figure it out.....finally I gave them box number four (a little lego boat)....they had fun guessing all day.

Get it?
