Charlie & The Chocolate Factory Themed Gift

It all started with this book! Jack's teacher read it to the class (a chapter per day) and Jack fell in love...the perfect start to a Christmas theme right?


So we bought his new favorite book, the movie version and a couple other new books to round out the chocolate theme (anyone remember these?).

{Charlie & the Chocolate Factory book, Charlie & the Chocolate Factory DVD, Chocolate Fever, The Chocolate Touch}

The final touch is to add a behind-the-scenes experience or two (because isn't that what Charlie is all about?). We're still working on our final list of places to visit/tours but we ended up with more than expected (we'll probably do a few dates throughout 2011 to fit in the various locations). To announce this part of the gift, I was planning to make a Golden Ticket, but luckily for me (and my terrible Illustrator skills) I came across this amazing custom ticket and a special one, just for Jack, is on it's way!

Now all I have left is to add a few Wonka Bars for authenticity (seriously...you can't have a chocolate-themed gift without chocolate!) and we're all set with some "wonderful surprises" for Jack!
