7 Creative Ways to Give Gift Cards

When we give a gift card, we often don’t really know how to wrap it, or present it, in an original way. To give you some gift giving inspiration, here are seven creative ways to give a gift card:

1. Offer a cinema gift card to the cinephile in your life by giving it in a popcorn container

If you’re looking to give a gift card from one of our entertainment retailers, like Cineplex, you could put together some sweets to eat during a movie in a popcorn container to create a fun cinematic theme.

2. Offer a gas gift card in a miniature car

Give a fuel gift card in a miniature model car of the same type that the recipient owns, or keep it aspirational and give the gift card with a miniature car of their dreams.

Alternatively you could also make one with this easy and low-cost DIY, for which you will only need empty toilet paper rolls, cardboard, paint and paper fasteners. This is also a great activity to do with the kids!

3. Offer a grocery gift card with a recipe book

What’s better than a recipe book to combine with a gift card from a food retailer! Whether it’s from IGA, Maxi or Loblaws, your loved ones will be able to cook delicious meals.

You can even find recipe books that are still in perfect condition at your local used bookstore.

4. Offer a home renovation gift card to the handyman of the house in a toolbox

To give a gift card from one of our home and garden retailers like Canadian Tire, RONA or Home Depot, what could be more original than to put the gift card in a toolbox that your handyman will fill with tools and accessories to carry out all kinds of construction or repair projects.

If your budget is more limited, you can easily create one made of cardboard with this tutorial.

5. Offer a practical travel coffee mug along with a coffee gift card for your caffeine addict

For the person in your circle that lives on caffeine, a travel mug combined with a coffee gift card is just perfect. You could even opt for one where you can customize the message like this mug.

6. Offer a hot drink set for the cocooning lover

You could choose a teapot set and then give a David’s Tea gift card to let them choose their favourite flavours and to offer a little bit of comfort during the cold season. You could even pair it with small accessories like honey or an infuser.

7. Offer a beauty gift card with a body care basket

To create a selfcare basket, you just need a basket and a few beauty products that you can find at low prices from our retailers like Brunet or Pharmaprix.

Get inspired by these 3 selfcare basket ideas.

No matter which retailer you choose, it’s definitely worth coming up with an original way to offer your gift cards this year!
