Gift Certificate Puzzle

To spice up a christmas gift certificate you take a photocopy or a modified version of a gift certificate and glue it to a card that can be cut into pieces. Cut up the card and wrap the pieces so the recipient has to recreate the original card to see where their gift is from.

This will make the gift more exciting.

;-D Good idea. Here is one that I did the first year me and my wife had Christmas with her kids (our kids now):

Get old empty present paper rolls, and a lot of cheap wrapping paper, and empty boxes. Take 5-10 Christmas presents and build a Christmas related statue, all wrapped up.

That year I built a Reindeer, LIFE SIZED. (Standing on industrial sized wrapping paper rolls) I gave her a custom designed necklace, but it was the smallest present (She had to “rip it out of the heart”)

You can do this with many themes, a sleigh, Santa, or even like I did (on a smaller scale) with wrapping paper string and tape, I wrapped a hoody-sweater so it looked (and felt) like a stuffed teddy bear.
:-D

It brings adventure to unwrapping, and the kids loved the idea that they had a reindeer standing next to the tree for about 2 weeks, their friends thought it was great!
