Take it personally...

The popular gift card...some hate it some love it.  Some think it's too impersonal, while for some it just works.  Whether a gift card is your last resort or your first option, here are a couple of ways to make this 'impersonal' gift a little more personal

For the girlie girl, a pretty pink envelope.  Homemade salt dough 'cookie' tag.

I glued the outline of the star to the back of the ornament in order to write the message.

For the little boy.

Using the cinnamon dough ginger bread man as a tag.

This one is probably my favourite because of its versatility.
It could be for a male or a female.
This idea can be used beyond Christmas.

So earthy and fresh.

For the lady....

Pearls, diamonds, lace...I would love to receive this card
holder with a little Anthropology gift card inside....SIGH...!

And it's as simple as.........


So you see, with a little effort you make this not so personal gift into a thing of beauty.

4 more days to go!

much love,
