Brainstorm Creative Ways to Display Gift Cards

Before you make your final decision, make sure you know all your options. The best way to display a gift card really depends on if it’s for a kid or an adult. If it’s for a kid, they will love playing a game before they can get the gift certificate. Something like the maze box or the pinball machine gift certificate holder on the list below are both great options. Displaying a gift card in devices like this makes getting a gift certificate a lot more creative and fun.

Creative Gift Card holders are Fun

You could also consider getting them a gift card holder like donkey piñata or the holiday teddy bear card holder. They are both cute ways to display gift certificates, plus they get a small gift along with the card. You could also consider getting them something like the gift card brain teaser or the gift card safe and make them follow a series of clues before they can get the contents inside. This is a bit more work, but you will find it quite amusing watching them try to get their reward.

Ideas for Giving Multiple Gift Cards

There are a couple items on the list below that are perfect for giving multiple gift cards at once. I remember how much fun it was to get a money tree gift card holder like the one below as a kid. If you don’t like the way the one on the list below looks. You can actually just find mini artificial Christmas trees at the store or online, then roll up a lot of dollar pills and tie them to the tree. Kids will be in awe when they see multiple gift cards or tons of dollars bills. My grandma used to get us money trees with 50 one dollar bills tied to it. As a kid it looked and seemed like so much money.

Other Tips on Giving Gift Certificates

If you know what type of stuff the person you’re buying for is interested in, you should try to get them something as specific as possible. If you really don’t know what they like or where they like to eat, then getting something like an amazon gift card is a good idea because they can choose from millions of products online. If you need a gift card last minute, consider a print at home gift card or egift card.
