How To Give The Most Requested Gift This Holiday Season


(NAPSI)—According to InComm’s 2018 Holiday Index, over 211 million U.S. consumers will be shopping for holiday gifts this year, and gift cards are this season’s most requested gift. If you’ll be among those giving a gift card, these three wrapping ideas can make them even more special to your recipient.

1. A DIY gift card holder. Pull the crafting supplies out, get your kids involved and assemble a personalized gift card holder that reflects your recipient’s hobby or interest.

2. Make it personal with a handmade greeting card. A handwritten note is truly a lost art so use your words to tell your recipients why you selected this particular gift card for them and let them know what they mean to you during this season of giving.

3. Wrap it up. Any gift can seem better in a beautifully wrapped box with a nice bow on it. Let your creativity soar: Paste on silk flowers, tinsel, candy canes, pinecones or jingle bells to make the box holding your gift card even more intriguing.

In addition, giving a gift card this holiday season could make shopping a lot easier for the lucky winners of the Vanilla® Gift Winner Wonderland Sweepstakes. Entering gives you a chance to win one of over 100 prizes from some of the most giftable brands.
