Disguise the fact that you are giving someone a gift card by wrapping it in a unique way. Choose a wrapping method that relates to the type of gift card you are giving. Think about the practical use of the wrapping, too, when deciding upon a gift card wrapping strategy. Adding a unique holder for the gift card adds warmth to the gift, and it shows that the gift is thoughtful and heartfelt.
Wrap a gift card in a container that fits the theme of the gift card itself. Decorate a paint can with colorful paper and a ribbon, and then place a home improvement store gift card inside. Have the gift card holder serve a function for another option, such as placing a spa or manicure gift card inside a makeup bag. Try placing a movie theater gift card inside a popcorn container, or include a Starbucks gift card inside a travel coffee mug.
Give a Christmas or winter gift card a cozy package by placing it inside a warm knit mitten. Add a few sprigs of pine to the mitten for added cushioning and an aromatic scent, place the mitten and its mate inside a gift box and wrap. Be sure to have the gift card poking out of the mitten a bit so that it does not get overlooked or accidentally thrown out with the discarded wrapping.
Enclose a gift card within a gift card holder Christmas tree ornament for a special holiday gift. Several ornaments are now available that double as gift card holders. After the gift card is taken out, the ornament is a keepsake for a Christmas tree. Options range from an elegant music box for a woman to a soft animal ornament for a child.
Add a personal touch to the gift card by creating a homemade holder or wrapping. Make a decorative pocket gift card holder out of large cardstock tags, ribbon and some glue. Create a decorative pouch gift card holder with wide fabric ribbon and a needle and thread or a sewing machine. Use a variety of contrasting bright colors for the pockets or pouches to really dress up the presentation of gift cards.
