7 Fun Ways to Give a Gift Card

  1. Ask your favorite coffee shop for an extra cold drink cup with a lid (the kind that are see-through). Place brown tissue paper inside, nestle the gift card into the cup, pop on the lid, tie the cup with pretty ribbon.
  2. Give gift cards in little felt Christmas stockings. Buy the stockings at the store or cut them out of felt and glue together with fabric glue.
  3. Fill a tin with homemade candy, cookies, or other treats. Tie it up with pretty ribbon and attach the gift card.
  4. Make little gift card holders out of duct tape. The kids will love to help with this project!
  5. Place the gift cards in your Christmas tree like decorations. Best decorations ever! For paper gift certificates, just order e-gift cards online, print them out, punch a hole in the corner of the paper, then tie it to your tree for friends and family members to find.
  6. Hide the gift cards in various places around your house like treasure. Give your family maps to help them find their prize.
  7. Buy new Chinese takeout containers. Fill them with the recipients favorite candy and place the gift card on top before closing the container and tying it with a bow.

Yay for gift cards simplifying my Christmas shopping!

    These are cute ideas. I have a teenager who gets lots of gift cards. We like to give them in puzzle boxes so he has to work for them just a little bit. It is extra fun for us as well watching him "play" with his gift.

    I think #6 is my favorite. That would be a lot of fun to do and if I were the one finding the gift cards I would be pretty ecstatic.

    I love the fact that our local grocery store gives Fuel Perks for dollars spent there so that is a Win-Win for me, for sure!!! Typically in the weeks prior to Christmas they have a “sale” where you get double the amount of fuel perks on gift card sales. They do have a wonderful selection, as well!!

    For Starbucks gift cards I ask my barista for an extra oatmeal container and lid. Then I 1/2 fill the container with coffee beans put a small tea light candle in the middle and then place the card inside the container. Tie a pretty ribbon around it. When the open it they smell the coffee beans and can lite the candle to smell it all day. Great for teachers.
