Gift Card Holders

Keep Track of Gift Cards for the Guest of Honor


Gift Card Holders

Gift Card Holder Cottage

Gone are the days of keeping track of gift cards at a party. Guests of honor no longer need to stuff their pockets or purse full of gift cards when they're presented at a special reception. Whether it's a retirement party, anniversary, wedding, birthday or any event where gift cards may be the likely gift, be prepared by setting up a gift card holder for guests to slip in their cards. Birdcages are a popular style, as are simple boxes. You can be creative by decorating the box to look like a house or other appropriate item.

Of course, be sure to place the gift card holder in a prominent location so that guests know where to put their cards, and where everyone can keep their eyes on it for safekeeping.
