I know some think that giving gift cards is a bit boring and the easy way out but I love giving (and getting) them. These past few years I’ve been buying gift cards for Wille’s younger cousins at the toy store. I remember when I was little realizing after Christmas what I really had wanted after seeing what my friends had gotten which was always a bummer. I would have loved a gift card back then.
Anyway, just sending or handing over the cards WOULD be a bit boring and the easy way out so I try to think of ways to make it a bit more fun. This year I used gift bags (I think they’re Martha’s from a few years ago), added the first letter of the cousin’s names on the back cardstock cut from a scrap of gift wrap, added some sockerbitar (sugarcubes) candies and stuck the gift card to the front of the cardstock with double stick tape and tied a ribbon through the holes. Easy peasy.
How do you feel about gift cards, yay or nay?
