Have you ever thought to yourself, “gee I’d love to give a gift card for special occasions, but I just don’t think they look very impressive compared to all the nicely wrapped larger gifts next to them”? Here are a few quick ideas that can help you wrap those gift cards so they look even better than those nicely wrapped gifts next to them.
What about when you need a fun birthday gift for dad or mom? Or a gift for Father’s Day or Mother’s Day? For dad, add a gift card to a little wooden birdhouse, or to a tool belt or box. Dad will appreciate your thoughtfulness. For the dad who likes to fish, why not slip a gift card into his new tackle box? What a surprise! For mom, add a gift card to a new wallet you bought for her, or replace the mini greeting card in a bouquet of flowers with a gift card to her favorite store. She’s sure to love it!
When it comes to a special friend, add a gift card to a cute little box of her favorite cookies, or attach one to a box of yummy chocolates. Better yet add an AMC gift card to a little bag of popcorn and take her out to the movies for a night out on the town with the girls.
And for the love of your life, try picking up a little heart shaped glass bowl and adding some confetti and a gift card you designed yourself, perhaps a picture of the two of you on your first date would be appropriate. If you can’t find a glass bowl, try writing a love poem or haiku on the inside of our greeting card to make it extra special.
