The holidays are fast approaching and in the mix of holidays I’m sure we all have a birthday, anniversary, wedding, shower or countless other things thrown into the mix too. Sometimes life sneaks up on you and you’re in need of a last-minute rushed gift. While other times you plan way in advance but know that a gift card is the perfect gift. Who wants to just send a dull boring gift card in an envelope or via email? A gift should have some life and personality to it right? That’s why I love that you can make fun personalized gift card gifts with The Gift Card Shop!
My sister has been a little down lately. She has five kids and three of them are ages two and under. She has a 12-year-old daughter, a 9-year-old son, 2-year-old boy, girl twins and a 1-year-old son. Basically, she has been pregnant or in new mom mode for three years straight. She spends all her time running the old kids around while hauling three little ones with her. At home she spends her day chasing down diaper clad bottoms going in three different directions. Her husband is a great guy and helps as much as possible but he works. However, there are always diapers, sleepless nights and days she prays for a shower alone for some me time.
I really wanted to send her a pick me up. Something to cheer her up and let her know that someone understands how much she needs a moment to herself to remember that she is not just mommy but Kim too. So I headed to The Gift Card Shop to find an egift card she would love but one that she would also spend only on herself. So she could indulge in some shopping. (I will even babysit.) I picked out a Sephora card because she loves beauty products and I know she’ll enjoy getting to try to pick out new items.
It was so easy to order and personalize this gift with The Gift Card Shop that I’m going to show you!
Head to The Gift Card Shop website. Click on the digital tab in the upper right corner.
I then clicked on the eGift Card link at the top of the page and browsed through the huge selection of egift cards.
Once I found the one I wanted, Sephora, I clicked the link for it. There I was able to select a denomination, choose between a digital gift card or a physical one and then I could either add to cart or personalize. I opted for the digital card and to personalize.
I was then taken to a a page where I could select from digital greeting cards, digital photobooks or digital video greetings. All of these would be a perfect option but i kept it simple and selected a digital greeting card.
I was then taken to a selection of beautiful card designs and narrowed it down with the occasions along the left side of the page. I went to the Just Because section of cards to find just what I was looking for. I then clicked on the card I wanted.
I decided to go with this Chin Up Buttercup card for my sister. I loved the beautiful flower background with the bold, silly saying. This is where you begin creating. Once you get the large view of the front you can select Back to pick a different card or Next to start to personalize it. If you select a card with a photo you can upload pictures from your computer, Facebook or Instagram.
I typed a fun message to my sister and “signed” it. I was able to select different font types, colors, sizes and alignment. When I was happy with it I clicked on the Next button.
There is so much detail that you can even select the envelope liner and envelope. Once that’s done you click on the Next button again at the top.
Click on the banner that says SWIPE OR CLICK to open your card and it will show you how the whole thing will look to the recipient. If it’s good just click on the Approve button at the top.
You then let them know who it’s to and from and if you want to Schedule Send or Send Now. If you choose to schedule a date field appears and you decide when you want it to go.
You’ll then get your total for that card and you can then Add To Cart. After that you can create more gifts or just checkout.
