Creative Gift Card Ideas!


DryBar Giftcard

Gift cards are great last minute gifts and can easily be dressed up in fun and easy ways. Today I am sharing my favorite gift card ideas and fun ways to give gift them. These are perfect for teachers, service workers, kids instructors/therapists, trainers, and so many more. Cute for stockings, too. And so many ship same-day on Amazon!

Don’t forget we also have a roundup of Last Minute Gifts you can still order and receive by Christmas. Click here to shop! 

Nordstrom Gift Card

Nordstrom Giftcard

A Nordstrom gift card is definitely my gift card of choice because the recipient can always find something he or she wants! I wrapped this in a nice gold gift card box  from The Container Store. If you are looking to pair something with it, Charlotte Tilbury’s Pillow Talk lipliner or lipstick or a NEST candle would be perfect!

Drybar Giftcard

Any girl would LOVE to receive a Drybar gift card. What a fun gift for someone who deserves to be pampered! When you purchase a gift card at the Drybar, they will give you one of their cute bags. I picked up a travel size of my favorite Drybar product, their Triple Sec Texturizer, but it would also be fun to pair it with this ‘Drybar Faves Set (curbside pickup at Ulta!). However, if you can’t go to the store, you can purchase and print Drybar gift cards online and pair with a travel brush or send via email. This would be a great gift to send to office staff, too.

Pair a Target gift card with one of Target’s adorable $5 monogram letter mugs (available via pickup!) and wrap in a piece of clear wrap and candy to dress it up! Other ideas for gifting a Target gift card would be to pair it with a few fun items from the dollar section or some school supplies for a teacher gift. 

Sephora Gift Card

Sephora Giftcard

A Sephora gift card is perfect for your beauty loving friend and even better with a  Sephora brand mask. No time? Order a Sephora gift card on Amazon and mask from your local drug store. I also recently discovered these little makeup remover packets that smell wonderful and make taking off makeup easy. Those would be another great little gift to pair with a Sephora gift card!

Barnes and Noble Gift Cards

Another easy gift card idea for men on your list is Barnes and Noble. Pair with a book or popcorn. Most party supply stores have little paper popcorn holders that you could fill with popcorn and candy, too. 

Anthropologie Soap + Gift Card

These cute holiday soaps are the perfect size to pair with a gift card! Tuck a gift card in the ribbon and you’re set. Order here via pickup!
