Sick of sending the traditional bouquet of flowers, Jeff Contiwas desperate to find a unique birthday gift that would actuallysurprise his girlfriend while she was on a trip to California backin 1992. So he mailed her a special box of candy that was supposedto play a personal message when she opened it. Instead, shereceived a box of chocolates with an audiocassette abruptly thrownin. Can you say "rip-off"?
Inspired by the lame gift, Conti went on to develop a much morenovel token of love--an entire surprise party in a box. To clarify,absorb Conti's vision: The Happy Birthday PartyBook, a bookthat, when opened, surprises the recipient with an inflating Mylarballoon, a special greeting card that plays "HappyBirthday" and an assortment of gifts and party favors.
