Pet Peeve: Cards that cost as much as the gift

Gift Card Ideas #peartreegreetings #stationery #gifts
There are many kinds of gifts, some extravagant, some simple, some thoughtful, some obligatory. This time of year we bring gifts wherever we go, and the expense can really add up—especially when the gift wrap and a card cost almost as much as the gift itself!

Gone are the days of attaching a card to every gift. These days, if I buy a card, the card IS the gift, usually with cash or a gift card tucked inside. But sometimes I do want to write a special message to accompany a gift—when I won’t be there to hand it to the recipient in person, for example. For these occasions, I look for inexpensive but tasteful gift card ideas, and have found that our mini note cards are perfect for this.

Mini note cards are about the size of a business card or gift card from a store. They are too small to be mailed, but are perfect for tucking into a bouquet of flowers, attaching to a bottle of wine, or taping to a gift like a gift tag. These personalized cards gives you just enough room to express your thanks or good wishes without doubling the cost of your gift. And sometimes that’s all you need.

See our collection of mini note cards for gift card ideas for every occasion. And for more useful gift ideas, keep reading our blog.

Married to an active husband, and Mom to three teenage boys, she finds herself out-numbered and out-voted on pretty much everything, never gets the remote, and is used to receiving blank stares when talking about girl stuff. This blog is both her outlet and her payback.
