There’s no denying that giving the gift of custom photo art is thoughtful and from the heart. Sometimes, with such a personalized gift, you may like to have the gift recipient choose their own favourite photo to print, or decide which photo art product and size is best for their space. A Posterjack gift certificate is perfect for these occasions; they’re also a great option for when you need a thoughtful last-minute gift.
Although Posterjack gift certificates are sent via email immediately after purchase and are printable, so you can quickly and easily tuck them into a card, you might like to personalize it a little more before gifting it.
Here are six creative ways to give gift certificates so they will look great under the Christmas tree or show that you’ve put additional thought and consideration into the gift.
1. Two Gifts in One
Wrapping a gift certificate in packaging they can reuse is like getting two gifts in one! Here are a few ideas of materials you can use:
- Cloth bags
- Mesh produce bags
- Beeswax wraps
- Mason jars
- Reusable snack bags
To give it a holiday feel, you can finish it off by decorating the packaging with twine, ribbon, or a bow.

2. The Amazing Mason Jar
Although we’ve already suggested using a mason jar as a way to gift wrap a gift certificate, we feel this one needs a little more attention, as there are so many creative ways you can use a mason jar to gift a gift certificate. If you don’t have a mason jar on hand, you can repurpose just about any type of glass jar, so check your recycling bin for that spaghetti sauce jar you used last week or finish off those pickles in the fridge so you can use that!
One of our favourite ways to use a mason jar to give a gift certificate is by filling it with the gift recipient’s favourite type of candy and tucking the gift certificate into the center of the candy, so it’s not visible. Finishing it off by adding a bow and gift tag to the top. Easy-peasy.
If you don’t want to use candy, there are endless things you can fill the mason jar with, from popcorn to bath salts to fairy string lights. If you need more inspiration and ideas, Pinterest is a fantastic place to find creative ways to decorate a mason jar for the purpose of gift giving.

3. A Gift From Me … Pop & See!
Here’s a fun and creative way to give someone a Posterjack gift certificate! Just roll it up and stick it inside a balloon. If you want to, you can decorate the balloon, attach a gift tag to it, or even add confetti or glitter inside the balloon for an extra surprise when they pop it.

4. A Riddle & A Hunt
If you don’t have the time or desire to package your gift certificate in a unique way, you can also send the gift recipient on a scavenger hunt. Print off the gift certificate, hide it somewhere in the house, and provide the person with a riddle to get them on their way. This website has some great riddles and clues you can use, such as:
"For your first gift
You’ll need to look
Where you keep
Your favourite book (Bookcase)"
5. Best Christmas Cracker Ever
There are no rules saying Christmas crackers must contain silly little hats, corny jokes, and little trinkets. Include a gift certificate inside one and make it the best Christmas cracker ever! There are lots of DIY tutorials out there that show you how to make Christmas crackers and best of all, most of the supplies are things you probably already have at home.

6. A Hint They Won’t Understand
If you have an idea of where the gift recipient will want to display their photo art, you can wrap the gift certificate and simply stick it to the wall where the new artwork will go. They’ll be baffled why you stuck a gift onto a large empty wall until they open the gift and see what’s inside.
The Options Are Endless
There is certainly no shortage of creative ways to give gift certificates. Whether you want to spend the afternoon crafting up unique packaging or you’re on the way out the door to a holiday event and realize you don’t have a hostess gift, Posterjack gift certificates are a thoughtful gift and perfect for anyone on your holiday list.
