Look, I get it — sometimes you feel like giving a gift card is the easy way out.

It’s hard to shop for people, but it also feels so dang impersonal to just hand over a store-branded gift card.

Show the people on your list that you’ve put some thought into their gift with these thoughtful and creative ways to present their gift cards!




1. Snowglobe

  • Hot glue the gift card, standing up, to the inside of the lid
  • Add some cute Christmassy decor to the inside of the lid
  • Fill the jar with water and glitter
  • Attach the lid and add some cute decor to the outside of the jar such as a ribbon or a gift tag


2. Ornament

  • Gather some festive scrapbooking paper or colorful felt
  • Cut paper into an ornament shape such as a ball, gingerbread man, candy cane, etc.
  • Attach some ribbon or string so that you can hang the card
  • Adhere the gift card
  • Hang it on the tree


3. Pretty Card

  • Use 2 pieces of pretty scrapbooking paper
  • On the back side, use a bowl to trace 2 circles per each piece of paper
  • Cut out circles and fold each in half
  • Overlap each piece on each other and glue a square piece in the middle to secure them
  • Adhere the gift card inside (and write a sweet note!)
  • Fold it up as you would a box where the last flap gets tucked under
  • Tie it up with ribbon and deliver
