Any thoughts on a good Christmas gift for my dancing daughter. She dances with Carnival and thus has very little personal space on the ship and of course anything I send her either needs to be left or carried back with her at the end of the contract. Since I know she left with 2 50 pound suitcases there is not much room to carry anything back. Hence the delima.

What do I get her for Christmas?

A card full of money seems to work rather well. Then she can get something she really needs or wants.

When I went away to college my Mom made me a collage of pictures including family and friends. I still have it today.

How about an MP3 player that will also handle photo. If she is a dancer she has to love music, plus you can put a few family photos on it for her to look at.

Or how about a digital picture frame. I'm sure a dancer can use lots of nylons!

Creative ways to send money....One year an employee at a Christmas party got $20 worth of scratch lotto tickets and gave that away as her Christmas gift...I really wanted that gift too. Oh well.

Tell me more about a digital picture frame. I've never heard of it. Is it a frame you assemble with your digits perhaps?

This is an interesting conceept. For years I have done stocking stuffers with scratch tickets. These would need to be redeemable in San Juan, Anyone familiar with lotto tickets to know a national (US) lottery ticket that could cash in San Juan?
Or perhaps I could enlist a fellow cast member to buy some in San Juan for me.

Now a interesting way to get them to her...

The cruise Director might hide them around her cabin and make-up room, crew bar, Disco longe etc. Or maybe a treasure hunt. What else?
