Thinking of You Gift Cards

Thinking of You Gift Ideas

Have you ever come home to find an unexpected note in the mailbox or a treat left on the porch for no particular reason? Knowing that somebody is thinking about you can be very uplifting. Now imagine sending a surprise personalized gift card to someone else. Not only would the gesture brighten his or her day in the moment the gift card arrives, but it would also bring extended good feelings as the recipient decides how to redeem the “thinking of you” gift card.

Below are some thinking of you gift ideas that are easy to make and fun to give:

Good Times. Take a current picture of the two of you together or find an old picture of the two of you as kids. Turn the photo into a personalized gift card. Upload the image and write the words, “Good times” on the gift card’s embossed message line. If you have an inside joke (e.g. “Two dejected seniors,” “Mr. Hall loved us,” “band camp rocked”), use those words instead.

Miss You. You can’t erase the miles, but you can still do something “together.” Get your friend a gift card to share an experience with you remotely. With a custom MasterCard® gift card, you could send her rock climbing, encourage her to take a cooking class, or start a new hobby together. Upload a picture of you starting the adventure and turn it into a gift card. Write, “Join me” on the card’s embossed message line.

Hang in there. Take a picture of you and the kids all hanging on the bars at a local elementary school. Upload the photo and turn it into a thinking of you gift card. Write “Hang in there” on the gift card. Send the gift card inside a personalized greeting card and have each member of the family write a note of encouragement.

If you don’t have a thinking of you photo of your own, select a thinking of you 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.

Thinking of You Savings

Don’t just think about someone, take action! Get a discount gift card for the two of you to use together. Go to the movies with an AMC Theatres gift card, take a craft class at Michaels, or take a cooking class at Williams-Sonoma. If your loved one lives out of state, get a discount gift card for Southwest airlines so he or she can come for a visit. Less thinking. More doing!
