How to 'wrap' / present Disney on ice tickets to family.

I am thinking of getting SIL and BIL and 3dc Disney on Ice tickets for Christmas so they can all go as a family. It will however be the sole present for SIL and MIL besides a bottle of booze or something and the main presents for each child. I'll probably spend another £10-15 on each so they have something small but nice to open too.

The only thing is the dc are 8, 4 and 3 so I don't want them to be dissapointed when we come only baring a small armful of presents. How can I make the tickets (which I'm guessing will be email print outs) more exciting to open? I've tried googling an official brochure but cannot find anything. Any good ideas anyone? X

Ooh Ooh I did this for DD last year!

I got a set of 3 gift boxes which were blue with silver snowflakes (very Frozen!) and set them up like a tower. I put random Disney stuff in each one - socks, little toys, a DVD etc) and right at the bottom of the last one were the tickets. Then I tied the whole tower up with lovely ribbon.

It went down sooooo well.

Why does aunty have to bring hugh pile of presents?? One gift is enough. You cant buy love/happiness.

sallyhasleftthebuilding that sounds just lovely.

I suppose I could just do one box for each child and fill it with socks/chocolate /stickers etc. little inexpensive things. I do still want to get them an additional gift so don't want to spend too much extra on packaging it up but that could certainly work!!! Thank you x

Sorry iheartkingthistle I only saw your post originally the saw Sally's name. Your post as very lovely.

sally really? Honestly. Did I say huge pile of presents? I said I wanted to buy 1 extra gift and that a back and White email print out might, to a 3, 4 and even 8 year old, the face of it, be a tad disappointing.

I'm certainly not trying to but love, just bring a bit of Christmas sipirt.

Wrap individual print out for each child being held by a small Disney cuddly? Harper bazaar (ahrg can't spell you know what mean) had some for less for fiver or cheaper pound land had Disney sandwich boxes for cheaper and easier wrapping!

I got my other half Chris Hadfield tickets and have hidden them in a space book. Could you get them Disney annuals and pop them inside ? I think it is a lovely present!
Heart, I bet that was amazing to see her open!
And really mumsnet need a massive bah humbug button for some posters .

What about crackers with some little bits in their too.... smile pull the cracker and get the ticket?

I love the cracker idea!!! I've yet to wrap my tickets for the DC and I'm making my own crackers this year. You guys are brilliant thank you.

Is there a Disney on Ice dad you could buy and put the tickets inside?
You would have to insist on it being opened though.

Dvd, not sure what a Disney on ice dad would be........

I got DH concert tickets last year and put them in a cracker with a meal voucher for beforehand.

I was just googling this...I came across one which was a big box full of balloons with the tickets at the bottom.

My dc are 7 and 5 and they'd be thrilled with a box of balloons!
