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.
