Need ideas for time capsule!!

I am preparing a "time capsule" for the year my baby was born.

Just looking for any uniques ideas anyone might have.

Appreciate any help.

My mother is doing the same thing for me.

Some of the things she mentioned putting in the capsule:

Information about the Election

The Yearly magazine (like what People or Time puts out)

The baby's wrist band from the hospital

The announcements and Shower invites

Something from the shower

Local newspaper from the day the baby is born

Some ideas as far as global:

News clippings

How the stock market is doing

Information about the ongoing war against Terror

What stars gave birth this year & thier babies names

Letters from relatives addressed to the baby

And that is all I can think of at the moment :-) Hope that gave you some new ideas. :-D

this may not be what you were looking for exactly or it may go along w/the other post where it says letters from relatives...but on Ilish's 1st Birthday we are planning on having everyone attending her party write down a memory or thought about Ilish and we are putting that in her time capsule. hth
