Box

Albert had a birthday so he invited his closest friends, each of who was obligated to bring a present, otherwise he'd not let them in. He received nice presents, some of which were quite expensive. But then it was time for the last present that was presented by the last and closest friend. When he opened a wrapped box there was nothing inside. But he liked this present more than others for something that happened shortly after. Why? What happened? (Fill the missing fact.)

He realised that the box was made of gold.
 
Or, he realised the true value of friendship was not measured by material things.

Shouldn't this be in the "what happened" forum instead of the "what am i" forum?

Nope. It was just an ordinary box. No intended answer as of yet.

That is absolutely right. Grimbal, what are you waiting for?!

Wait.  First we have to establish whether I was waiting or not.  Then whether I was waiting for something.  Then only we can wonder what it is I was waiting for.  Or maybe what for I am waiting.

That is a fine line of reasoning. I'll "borrow" it for my upcoming epic fantasy. Okay?

He received a coffin.
He organized a farewell birthday party after his doctor told him that he got a serious illness and would soon die.
He thought it was very thoughtful of his friends.  He hates receiving presents he has no use for.
What happened shortly after?  He died.

No. But "the coffin" (as if that was a coffin) wasn't for him . . .

It seems like you're suggesting that he could use the box to store something in.

Not quite "store", but yes, you are definitely on the right track.

So, what was "stored" in the box then?

Water (so it could become ice)
Drugs
A Rabbit (as part of a magic trick)

This is definitely on the right track! But, are you truly a rabbit person?

Albert had murdered his wife and put her body in the box.  The empty box (no wife's body) was his friend's way of saying "it's taken care of...you don't have anything to worry about."

Why is it that people ask for my two cents worth, and then only offer me a penny for my thoughts?
That deal sucks!

It makes sense, but it is too morbid. The answer is a happy one. No dead people. Sorry.

It is a magic box that fills with food whenever he is hungry.

Surely you meant a food replicator. Magic is science we do not yet understand.  
 
I was thinking of a cat. A bit silly answer.
