I’ve always had a hard time giving someone a gift certificate or card. I want it be exciting, not just an envelope with tickets or a gift card in it. So I decided to think outside of the envelope and came up with 5 creative ideas.
1. Find out something about what you’re giving them. My example is tickets for Blue Man Group. They do a bit about Captain Crunch so I hid the certificate inside the box. The confusion of the recipient is part of the fun, but when they realize the tickets are inside they get excited.
3. Sew together paper. Not everyone’s a sewer so you can staple it together, but make sure you add a fun element inside to give it some texture. Here I’ve got some M&Ms to throw them off track!
Do you like giving gift certificates? How creative do you get?
Disclaimer: I do work for Blue Man Productions, but was not compensated for this post. These ideas are mine and I simply used their gift certificate because I had one. All opinions are my own.
