Creative Wrapping Ideas for Gift Cards

GiftCardWrappingIdeasHappyClippings

Do you like gift cards? Personally, I love receiving gift cards. I also like to give them to friends and family on special occasions or just to say thank you. A gift card is a great present option but it may appear impersonal. Here are 12 ideas to turn your gift card giving into a more thoughtful present.

Gift Card with a Candy Bar – Place a gift card on top of a candy bar.

Bath & Body Works Gift Card– Attach an inexpensive small body wash, soap or lotion to a gift card. Better yet, get a free lotion when Bath & Body Works offers a coupon for a free 2oz lotion product like they recently did here.

Home Improvement Store Gift Card – If you’re giving a home improvement store gift card to someone who plans to redecorate with paint, then attach a small paint brush and a few paint chip samples. The paint chip samples are free and the paint brush was under $1. Another idea is to give the gift card with a a keychain measuring tape or small screwdriver set.

Bookstore Gift Card – Purchase a small journal or inexpensive book to wrap with a bookstore gift card. The hardcover notebook pictured above cost only $1 at Michaels found in their dollar bin.

Craft Themed Gift Card – If you’re giving a gift card to a craft store like Michaels, then attach a small inexpensive craft tool like a flower puncher. I bought the one pictured above for $1.

Starbucks Gift Card Idea #1 – One year while I was purchasing a Starbucks gift card, they ran out of gift card holders. The barista handed me an empty unused Starbucks Holiday red cup and suggested it would be cute to place the gift card inside. She was right. Fill it with small candies around the gift card, top with the white lid and tie with a bow.

Starbucks Gift Card Idea #2 – Another fun idea for a Starbucks gift card is to stuff brown and white tissue in a Starbucks clear cup and place Starbucks gift card inside. Top with a lid, straw and ribbon. I found this great idea over at Saucy Sprinkles.

Spa Gift Card – A spa gift card can be wrapped with nail polish. Idea found on Jacolyn Murphy.

Baking Theme Gift Card – For a baking themed gift card, place candy in a whisk and attach gift card to it. Love this “We WHISK you a Merry KISSmas” idea from Today’s Fabulous Finds. Another idea is to wrap the gift card with a spatula or oven mitts.

Movie Theatre Gift Card – If you plan to give a movie gift card, then use a popcorn bag, popcorn bucket, or make your own using a printable from In Between Laundry. Fill it with popcorn and candy and insert gift card. You could also wrap with an un-popped bag of microwave popcorn and a box of candy.

Gift Card in a Snow Globe – I love how beautiful these gift cards look in a snow globe.  I found this on One Charming Party. They do note: They tested the gift cards after a week and they still worked. However, they don’t recommend leaving the gift cards in the water longer than a week.

Gift Card in a Jar with Candy – If you have jars and small candies, then this idea will be easy to do. This idea was found on Heavenly Homemakers.

Creative Storage Solutions – Storing Plastic Bags

Org-CreativePlasticBags

Although I often use reusable bags when I do my grocery shopping, plastic bags still make their way into my home. If you’re looking for a way to store plastic bags neatly, then read the following ideas:

Or you could just fold the plastic bags as small as possible and place in a container. This is what I do. I have a tupperware container at the bottom of my pantry where I place my folded bags.

You could fold plastic bags into a nice neat small triangle. I don’t fold my bags into a triangle. I do something similar to the tutorial HERE from Life You Way. But instead of securing with a loop, I take the ends of the two handles and loosely tie them together.

What do you do with your plastic grocery bags?
