I absolutely love giving (and receiving) gift cards over the holidays.
I often buy a few for my oldest son (who lives away from home) for his favorite places like Target, Starbucks and local take-out restaurants. At least I know he has to use the money for items he needs, as opposed to giving him cash and it being wasted on frivolous things.
My little ones love gift cards too. They feel like such big kids walking into a store and picking out their own toys, books or accessories and handing over their gift card to pay at the checkout.
When I give gift cards though I like to make them look more like a gift rather than just stick them inside a card and hand them over.
Here is a lovely way to give a Target GiftCard® this holiday season, that's practical too.
As you can see, this little pouch can be used for so many other things - I love these for traveling and use a variety of them for hair accessories, jewelry, make up, medicines and more.
