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.

Or at least that's what this was going to be, until I saw the weather report for tomorrow. It's going to be 81 degrees.
So needless to say, this gorgeous handmade knit vest is going to be staying home. This was by no means a quick project, through every yarn group with friends, to nights catching up on DVR'd programs on television, this project was many hours long, but it was a labor of love, and will last him through the fall and winter and hopefully into next year too.
So because I won't be getting all kinds of adorable photographs of him wearing it tomorrow, I asked him to wear it for me today, so I could capture a few 'nice' photos under the shade of a big tree in our yard. This kid is a complete goofball though, so I set my camera on sports mode and captured his personality, and a little of the vest thrown in instead.
