Sometimes you need a quick gift.
Sometimes it's easy (or just better) to give cash or a gift card.
This doesn't mean you are unthoughtful, or even uncreative.
Here are my top 3 tips for adding a handmade touch to a cash gift.
1. A handmade card
Doesn't have to be complicated, but think outside the cookie cutter greeting card for a thoughtful touch. I used colourful, diecut numbers for children's birthday cards this year.
2. A handmade gift bag
Slip your card + cash into something unique and interesting. I made a batch of these colourful hand-painted "hip hip hooray" cotton bags using a custom stencil, which serve as creative wrapping/envelopes for my cards (or gift cards).
3. Include a small add-on gift
A small gift that suits the occasion ups the thoughtfulness quotient. Think: chocolate, special birthday candles, a small toy, hair accessories.
Do you have any fresh ideas for making cash gifts pretty?
Would you like to see these custom stencilled gift bags in the shop?
