Awesome Gift Card Idea

awesome gift card idea
I know that sometimes gift cards can seem like a lazy way to give gifts, but they are so convenient! There are times that I prefer gift cards over getting something that I will not have use for. The thing is, giving a gift card can feel impersonal and putting them inside a greeting card can get old. This past Valentines Day, I know that I wanted to give my significant other a gift that he can definitely use but I just couldn’t think of what. I know that he has been working so hard, and I wanted him have a day of relaxation and pampering. A massage is something that came to mind and I know that he definitely can use. I found a wonderful place close to our place called Spa Jardin and stopped by to get him a gift card for a deep tissue massage.

I really loved how they packaged their gift cards and I wanted to share it here. Next time you have to give a gift card, maybe you can personalize it this way!Gift Card Idea-7

Gift Card Idea-5 Gift Card Idea-4What you’ll need:

Mason jar
Decorative ribbon or string
A gift tag
Scented buds

For this particular example, they had used what seems like lavender buds. You can use herbs, potpourri, or anything scented  (you can even use cotton balls sprayed with your favorite perfume or cologne) to include inside the jar so that the recipient will have a beautiful surprise when they open their gift.

How adorable is this? After using the gift card, the mason jar still can be used for so many other things and won’t go to waste!

Do you do anything special for your gift cards? Let me know down below!


Day dreamer. Lover of all things cute and pretty. I also have a thing with planners/organizers.

  1. That is a very creative way to spice up a gift card instead of just putting it in some generic gift card holder or envelope. I will definitely use this idea as a starting point that I can “think outside the box” more when it comes to giving gift cards. Thanks!

  2. What a lovely idea! Definitely something I will be doing in the future! My mum loves Next clothes so I very often take her in there for mothers day or her birthday as I always felt gift card wasn’t very personal but this makes it a nice touch

  3. Personalized gifts are the best because they show that the giver spent some time thinking about what would be best for the celebrant… I love the idea. 🙂

  4. What a lovely idea! Definitely a more interesting way of gifting a gift card 🙂
    I love to give (and receive!) gift cards, too, as it tends to makes the recipient treat themselves!
