A Birthday

remember the MacGuffinosity

It's easy to start out with a MacGuffin.  If the characters need something to motivate them, put in a quest object where the details don't matter, and have them chase after it.  It might acquire enough details during the course of the story to make it no longer a MacGuffin, or at least not so severely.

But -- don't forget it's a MacGuffin and so the details can change.  Even substantially.
