Gift Wrap Inspiration: Money and Gift Cards

With Christmas only one week away, you may be struggling with last-minute gifts.  I have come across a few GREAT ways to make money and gift cards more interesting - so go ahead and gift them - with a little pizzaz, of course!

If you have the time to pick up supplies, I really think this gift would get people talking!!

A friend recently asked me, "is it OK to give gift cards"?  SURE - and no reason why you can't get creative about it.  You could create a whole gift around gift cards - dinner, a movie, drinks - the ideas are endless. I particularly like this Gift Card Tree from Simply Creative Insanity.   I wrote some other ideas about spicing up gift cards here.

Happy Gifting!
