The holidays are always a rush. Summer runs out and the cool, crisp Autumn air reminds me to start my holiday shopping. Of course, family is always hard to shop for.
I prefer to give gift cards. I mean, who doesn't like a gift card? All the post-holiday sales are just perfect for snagging just what each of my recipients really wants this year. The draw-back? Passing out an envelope or card with a gift card can be, well... a let-down.
I love all those little wrapped boxes under the Christmas tree and unwrapping fun colored paper is a lot more fun than just opening an envelope. Well, here is a great project to forever change how you see giving gift cards. It is called Snomee.
When the box arrived it was just as fun as Christmas! Wrapped in tissue paper my kids couldn't wait to see what treasure was buried inside.
I was impressed with the packaging. The box was held closed with a ribbon. So simple and classy. No one would guess there was a gift card tucked safely inside.
Upon opening the box there is an adorable snow globe. My daughter was mesmerized!
We were sent the Sports and Fitness Snomee, the collection includes 11 designs for now. Each little character is cute and fun with themes to fit your recipients interests or personality.
Then tucked underneath is the perfect place to fit a gift card and underneath a spot for your personalized message.
I would be thrilled to receive a Snomee for Christmas... and am always up for a gift card to Amazon... hint, hint. Even my kids would be be delighted since they have been fighting over possession of the cute snow globe.
So, what do you think? Would you give a Snomee?
They just launched on Kickstarter and are being featured. Kickstarter is an online pledging system to fund creative projects and help small businesses get off the ground. Snomee would love your support, and with only 20 days left to pre-order for Christmas, go snag Snomee for your friends and loved ones.
