Question Coaster boxes- what to put inside?

I recently made a coaster box as a gift, and the recipient loves it but is wondering what she should put inside of it. I came up with very few suggestions, so thought I'd post here in hopes that more creative minds could answer this question for me I believe she is interested in using the coaster box as a home decor item. If you have any suggestions at all, please post. I would be so grateful!

Sincerely,
Michelle- Stampin' in MN

______________________________

1. A bag of Chocolates.
2. Soaps and Bath Supplies.
3. Popcorn, salts, and favoring.
4.Kitty or Doggie Treats
5. Rubber Stamps and Paper samples.
6. Use them to store your pens and markers in.
7. Homemade Cookies or Muffins.
8. Flavored Coffees.
9. Hard Candies.
10. For Guys: After shave, Shaving cream, and a Razor.

These are just a few idea.

Thank you for the great suggestions, Jeanstamping2!

And thanks Danni for the great samples! I've been to your blog a few times and love your creations!

The list Jean gave is great but I am also looking for ideas on what to fill the coaster box with for display once the recipient takes the goodies out of it. For example, you can put a floral arrangement in the box, or stationery items like pens, pencils and notepads. That's about all I can think of though, so if anyone has any ideas, please let me know.

Thanks!

Well after the recipient has taken out the goody bag.
why not tell them they can put a votive candle holder in it. and fill it with Flowers.
or
add a Silk flower arrangement inside it.
Use it for a Pen and Pencil holder.
Put some Sewing stuff inside.

put a small container inside and use it to collect change.

a place to put a pen and paper for those list that you need to make or put it by the phone.

how about a big fat Candle. Just make it a taller one that the coaster box.

How about all the various remote controls...or cell phone or other chargers...lip balms...keys...teabags...that's all I can think of right now. Look around your house and see what you have in small containers around the room.

Absolutely love the idea but I am more impressed with 9,000 posts. OMG this would take me 5 years to do! I'll never make it!
