Am very excited as have bought DH some tickets for the Grand Prix for his 40th, going to give it to him next Sat at a surprise party I have planned. I have a gift voucher printed basically am going to give him a bit of paper as tickets not sent until closer to the time. Any ideas greatly appreciated how I could make it a little more imaginative.

Get a helium balloon in the shape of a car and have it float out of a huge box with tickets on the end (did this for our girls when we suprised them with a disneyland holiday for christmas)

Or get someone to dress up as racing car driver to deliver the tickets to the party?

xroads My 5yo ds has a lightning mcqueen racer outfit, he could deliver them for a couple of invites to the party smile

Do you know someone with a scalectrix or whatever they are called? (or play some other type of racing game on the computer) have a race, let him win, decorate a stool to look like a winners podium, cheap bottle of fizz to spray about everywhere (outside) and hand him the voucher in a gold envelope as his 'prize'.

You lot are so much more imaginative than me, loving the balloon and scaletrix ideas!

Why not get everyone at his surprise party to wear a mask of an F1 driver? Jenson Button mask here

Squirted, love it! cant see MIL buying into it tho unfortunately, could get DS's to wear masks and give him the box with balloon a la xroads idea.
