Keeping up with the gift cards
As I was watching my grandpa open his 7th gift card at his 80th birthday party, I pulled The Mr aside and joked that I was going to get them a recipe box to put their gift cards in to keep track of. I decided to go through with it and bought a nice bamboo recipe box to organize the gift cards and I even filed their Christmas gift cards in there for them.
What I love about this recipe box is not only is it pretty and something they can keep on the counter but this particular model has a card holder on the top! Let's say the grandparents want to go to Red Lobster for dinner, they can grab the gift card out of the box and slip it in the slot on the top so they don't forget it!
Love it! When the lady at the store asked if I was organizing my Christmas recipes, I told her no, what I was going to use it for and she about lost it telling me how awesome that was and I thought, "hmm, I should probably share that one." I know I'm not the first person to think of it but you'd have thought I was given how the cashier was going on not just to me but the lady behind me as I was leaving. Of course the grandparents loved it or if they didn't they did a great job faking it. So if you find yourself with an abundance of gift cards that you don't want to keep in your bulging wallet or dig out of the abyss of your purse, this recipe box is a great way to keep track of them!
(FYI- If you click on the link above for the recipe box, be aware the low reviews are because it doesn't fit certain recipe cards well but this does not apply to gift cards since they're so small. They fit easily into the box)
What was your favorite gift you received this year?
