BEST IDEAS TO MAKE GIFT CARD GIVING FUN AND CREATIVE!

  Inside: how to make gift card giving a fun and personal experience!   This post has a sponsored link to a website, meaning I was paid to promote it but did not test or review any of the products in it and so this post is not to be concidered as a recommendation.  When I was a kid I couldn’t wait for my birthday because I knew I was going to get toys and gifts I liked.

On one hand I always feel really bad throwing them away because people took the time to pick them, write something and then send them but on the other hand I don’t really want to keep them because it’s just a card with a few words like I get every year and if I keep them all I’ll need another room… Lol So I started thinking if keeping them or throwing them were my two only options… apparently not!     WAYS TO USE OLD CARDS   KEEP THEM Keep cards from special events like a wedding or Bar-Mitzva as a piece of family history to show your children or grandchildren.
