I sorta did this once before - except from another angle. I had gotten her some sapphire earrings for Christmas, but talked about her need for a new desk chair. I went to Staples, and got an empty desk chair box, picked up some twisted metal scrap along the railroad tracks to put inside the box. I "hid" the box in the garage where she would notice it.
The wrapped box showed up next to the Christmas tree, as did a very small box hidden deep in the boughs. When she opened the desk chair box and saw the scrap metal, I pointed out the little box in the tree!
