Every once in a great while I will get this strange idea to do something nice for my husband. I’m not sure if it was because I knew I was heading out of town for a girls weekend to shop or if because I had heard him say the words “I need to have a poker night soon” a thousand times over? Regardless I figured it was time to surprise that little man of mine. I knew three things going into this: 
1. There needed to be beer and cigars involved
2. They would need food to eat
3. Cards and poker chips would most likely come in handy 
That’s when I threw this concoction together…

That’s right–a poker night in a box [or in a case for this matter]. Obviously Cheez-Its and popcorn made the cut, along with the cutest (am I allowed to call cigars cute?) cigars I’ve ever seen.I found those little Cubero cigars at Walmart for a few bucks a pack and knew they would fit perfectly into my professionally made case of beer. 

I topped it all off with some candy (not visible), brightly colored yellow tissue paper, and a card explaining what this box was all about. Needless to say he was pleased and we alllllll know what happens when your man is pleased….well nothing typically, but hypothetically speaking lets say if he didn’t fall asleep//play on his iPad//or eat cookies and milk after opening said surprise you could imagine what would happen. For the record, he fell asleep. Don’t worry mom and dad. Virgin for life.

And here is the unfolding of the poker night in a box…

Success. Now if only he would have won enough to pay for my shopping addictions. Until next time…

Ladies, have any of you ever done a surprise in a box type of thing? If so, what did you do it for and what did you fill it with? I loved this idea and want to do it more often..do share.
