I asked for advice on my Facebook page last week about what to get Kate’s daycare teachers for Christmas, and got all sorts of fabulous ideas! My favorite suggestion came from my friend Allison who posted an idea (compliments of The Creative Mama) for giving a gift card inside a DIY snow globe.
I know that gift cards are a favorite thing to receive, but simply handing one over has always seemed so impersonal (and boring) to me. This idea was the perfect solution! I took a Ball canning jar, filled it with red glitter, miniature ornaments, and some red beads. Next, I glued a Target gift card that says “Merry Christmas” to the lid so it would stand up straight in the jar. Lastly, I filled the jar with water, screwed the lid on, flipped it over…and it became a festive holiday snow globe filled with a gift card!
Kate was in awe of our little creation–and her daycare teachers loved them, too!
