Cash + Gift Cards Don’t Have to be a Lame Present

There’s something about giving a card in an envelope that makes it seem not so gift-like, even if it’s the perfect present. Whether the card is filled with cash, a gift card or tickets to a show, an envelope tends to make the present look like an afterthought — and there’s just not that much to “open.” To add a little something extra and turn this “last-minute” item into a true gift, take a few seconds to tie a ribbon or two around the envelope.
