My in-laws are very hard to buy for. If they need something, they buy it. So, I opted to get them restaurant gift cards this year as their main gift.
However, I wanted to do something a little more special than just handing them a gift card.
So, I purchased some hard candy and filled two jelly jars with it. Then, I slipped the gift cards into the center of the jars.
I found this idea at Heavenly Homemakers and thought it really was a fun way to give a gift card.
I printed off some Christmas jar labels from Darling Doodles and put them on the lids. (Another idea is to use old Christmas card fronts to cover the lid of the jar which would be a great way to recycle.)
A ribbon tied around the jars was the finishing touch.
My in-laws really seemed pleased with this gift. Plus, my mother-in-law likes to can so she can use the jars to make jelly this summer.
Do you know of any other creative ways to give gift cards?
