Better Way to Gift Your Coffee Gift Cards

We are getting so close to Christmas! I am sprinting to the finish and was working on my gift cards this weekend. Like all of us, I give coffee gifts cards this time of year. I am one of those people who doesn't think that a coffee gift card is a boring gift. I for one always need a $10 coffee card...right!  Over the years I have created a Better way to dress up the gifting part of the gift card. Since every year when I get the supplies for the gift cards the barista tells me "that is such a Good idea" I decided to share it with you all today.

Instead of just putting a coffee card in an envelope, when I purchase the cards, I ask the clerk for enough of the holiday cups and lids to put the gift cards in and easily dress them up. When I purchased the cards early Saturday morning the barista told me that she didn't have envelopes for them and I said "that's ok...because I am going to ask you for small holiday cups to put them in." She said what a cute idea!" I told her "Right!"

Here is what you need to dress up your coffee gift cards:

-Gift card
-Small coffee cup with lid
-Basket filler or tissue paper
-Clear treat bags

I always use shredded basket filler in the cups I do. Pop the lids on after you fill them. Put them in a clear plastic treat bag and tie with a ribbon.

Even though wrapping is one of my least favorite elf tasks, I do think these come out pretty cute! I don't even consider this really wrapping. 

Let's keep the holiday conversation going.  What Good wrapping or gifting ideas do you have? Share them in the comments below.
