Do you ever give out gift cards for gifts? I do it all the time and I am always trying to think of a creative way to present the gift card- not just in a greeting card or a little plain box.
I was putting together a gift basket the other day and had to figure out a way to present movie tickets. I wanted something fun and interesting and most importantly- cheap! (This was for a charity auction so my budget was super tight.)
So I spotted these little popcorn cups at Target in the Dollar Spot and at the Dollar Store in different sizes for just $1.00!
I stuffed the popcorn box with the little gift basket shred that you can get for $1.00 at the Dollar Store and viola! (Crumble up tissue paper at the bottom of the container and you can use less shred to fill it.)
A really cute way to present your movie tickets! I also used a cellophane bag I had on hand (these are the large size treat bags) and tied with a ribbon.
The movie tickets I bought on sale at Costco so the total cost of this gift was $15.99 (2 adult tickets) +$1.00 for the popcorn bucket + $1.00 for the shred.
The baggie and ribbon I already had on hand.
And the little gift above might be enough but if you want to do a gift basket, here is how my final product looked.
I did a Family Night themed basket with a movie, board game, puzzle, cookie cutters, science experiments for kids, popcorn, and a gift card for a local gourmet candy store.
So this might be a fun gift for someone- I like baskets like this for new parents that might already have children instead of a traditional baby gift.
I also like just the movie tickets as an idea for a teacher gift or for Coaches or just surprise your spouse with an impromptu Date Night.
This might be a cute thank you gift for someone as well- if they have little ones you might consider tying a note to the container and offering a night of baby sitting services. (I know I would love that myself!)
