Surprise trip ideas

My brother and I decided last night that we are going to surprise my mom with a Christmas trip to WDW next year. We are going to "give" it to her this Christmas so that she isn't caught off guard (time off from work and all that jazz). We were thinking that we wanted to do one of those "never-ending" gifts with a coupon for a trip at the very bottom, but we don't know how to do it.

When I go in September I am going to pick up a snowman pin or something, and I'd like to find some of that Mickey glitter, but that's the extent of my ideas so far. LOL.

Does anyone have any ideas?

The present to my kids this year from my husband and I was a trip to Disney. I went on line and googled Disney Letter head. I found a really cool free letter head and used it. I typed out a letter as if it were from Mickey Mouse, and he told my daughter in the letter that her mommy and daddy had gotten her a trip to Disney and that we were going in February. We ordered a free Disney Planning DVD. and we made customized maps on the Disney Web site and printed them out on regular computer paper. We threw some extra stuff in the box as well. Some note books with Mickey Mouse on them and some Disney pens. She was shocked and loved it. I wrapped the box with White paper and put disney stickers all over it.

Last year, my parents surprised us with a trip to Disney. What they dis was they bought us a Mickey sweatshirt and/or t shirt and wrapped it and put it in a box inside a box inside a box kinda thing. Then they made a card with Mickey mouse Santa on the front. Inside it said, "On the first day of christmas my parents gave to me, a sweatshirt and a trip to Disney!". And then inside the sweatshirt and/or t shirt was our park tickets. It was really cool. I had actually known about the trip already but it was fun to watch my brothers faces light up. Good luck deciding!

Be sure to go to the Christmas shop in Germany in Epcot's World Showcase. It had a wonderful variety of lovely small gifts I thought when we were there.
