Crochet a gift card holder for the gift cards you will be giving away this holiday season to add a personal and handmade touch!
This iconic little red truck with a tree in the bed is perfect to house the gift cards you will be gifting this year. The card fits in perfectly and the recipient can use the red truck as an ornament!
Crochet Gift Card Holder
I think crochet gift card holders add a handmade touch even when you aren’t sure what your recipient would like to receive for a gift.
Teachers, service workers, distant relatives, and co-workers are just a few people you may want to give gifts to during the holiday season but aren’t exactly sure what they would like as a gift.
Gift cards don’t have to be a ‘last minute thought’ kind of gift! Crocheting a holder for the gift card shows that you took some time to give it a handmade touch.
I personally think gift cards are always a good choice when it comes to gift because generic gifts are often donated or thrown away. With a gift card, the recipient will be able to buy something they would like or something useful!
