Give the Gift of Gift Cards!

FARMINGDALE, N.Y., Dec. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Time is running out and you still haven't even begun your Holiday shopping. Why not give a Gift Card? You make the purchase, they do the shopping. It couldn't be easier for both of you.

With all of the gift cards purchased this season, the challenge is to make sure that yours stands out from the rest. "Think outside of the envelope when giving a gift card," suggests Bari Fagin, Bed Bath & Beyond spokesperson. "Turn the gift card into a gift itself!" She offered the following suggestions for creative gift card giving, but adds "let your creative energies flow and you may be amazed at what you come up with!"


* For the Photographer: Place the Gift Card in a decorative picture frame filled with a Holiday message instead of a photo.

* For the Cook: Make a basket using a colander, kitchen utensils and gourmet sauces.
Attach the Gift Card to a recipe card with the message: Cooked just for you!

* For the Spa Lover: Create a pyramid of towels in rainbow hues and sizes, top with ribbons, loofa and a Gift Card with a note:
Just add water!

* For the Wine Enthusiast: Bringing that special bottle and don't know what kind of glasses they'd like?
Tie a Gift Card around the bottle with a note: To toast in the Holiday, pick the glasses!

* For someone giving on a budget: Buy a Gift Card at a denomination you can afford.
Make a giant poster, attach the Gift Card with the message:

Whoever thought such a little piece of plastic could go such a long way!
