My step son, for Father's Day in children's church, painted on one of those plastic divider cases. What a great idea too. Now hubby keeps all of his loose nuts, bolts and screws in there and it is "personalized" by his little buddy. It is so cute too. The kids have fun making them and it is useful for the adult. Very inexpensive too. This could be a Christmas idea for all of you out there with kids.
For birthday gifts, when my girls were little, we would get a colored divided case (meant for embroidery floss) at the discount store, and use stick on letters to put the recipient's name on it, then stickers to match his/her interests to decorate it. Then we would purchase little trinkets or craft supplies and put in the holes (sometimes rock/mineral specimens, too). They were always well-received.
