Halloween isn’t a “gifting” holiday in the traditional sense, but we certainly hand a witch’s lair worth of treats to little superheroes, princesses, ghosts and goblins throughout the month of October. Rather than give a Halloween-themed item for a birthday, anniversary, or thank you gift, however, order a custom Visa® gift card and save the pumpkin, candy corn, and caramel apple to use as gift card holders.
Below are some Halloween gift ideas that are easy to make and fun to give:
Pretty Pumpkin. A quick search of the Internet will reveal several ways to decorate a pumpkin without cutting it open or scraping out the goo. Pick a favorite design, make your own pumpkin, then take a picture of it and make your own gift card. When the card arrives, punch a hole in the card (being careful not to punch the magnetic stripe), and use a ribbon to tie the card to the stem of the pumpkin. The recipient will have a Halloween pumpkin for the porch and a Halloween gift card for the mall.
Candy Corn Creation. Take a photo of your favorite Halloween candy and upload the image to make a personalized gift card. Write the words, “All Treat. No Trick.” on the embossing line. Fill a mason jar with the same candy and tuck the Halloween gift card inside. Tell the recipient to reach inside to find either a trick or a treat!
Goblin Gift Card. Snap a “before and after” photo of the kids in their Halloween costumes. Put the “after” image on a personalized gift card and write, “BOO!” on the embossed message line. Add a personalized greeting card to your order and put the “before” photo on the greeting card. Write “Happy Halloween” inside the card.
If you don’t have a Halloween photo of your own, select a Halloween gift card design from our predesigned gallery. The gallery is full of gift cards created by our designers plus thousands of images submitted by photographers, artists, and designers who participate in the PicPaid program.
Costumes, candy, and party decorations can all be purchased for less than face value with discount gift cards to craft stores like JoAnn Stores, Michaels, or Hobby Lobby. Gift cards to drugstores like Walgreens and ShopKo can also be used to buy Halloween supplies. And you can save on pumpkins using a discount gift card to the grocery store, too. It’s almost scary to think how much money you can save simply by shopping with discount gift cards!
Trick or Treat likely got its roots from a custom in the Middle Ages called ‘Souling’ where the poor would go door-to-door collecting food in exchange for praying for the dead. Learn More
