Open When… Envelopes

There’s a reason “___ of the Month” clubs are so popular. People love opening surprise gifts on a regular basis!

Most gifts you can open only once. But not Open When… Envelopes.

Gift recipients will receive multiple envelopes containing gifts they’ll be able to open over a period of months!

For this gift idea, you simply need envelopes, cash and/or gift cards, and a printer. On each envelope, print a different “Open When…” scenario on the front. Here are some examples.

  • OPEN WHEN
  • … you need retail therapy.
  • … you don’t feel like cooking.
  • … you want to see a movie.
  • … you need pampering.
  • … you need gas.
  • … you’re craving ___. (Ex. Thai food, ice cream, fried chicken, etc.)
  • … you need a haircut. 
  • … you run out of booze.
  • … you’re hungry.
  • … you’re thirsty.

Do your best to match the Open When… scenarios to the gift recipient’s interests (Ex. type of food) and needs (Ex. gas money). Then inside each envelope, place cash or a gift card that will cover the cost of the scenario, and seal the envelope.

Open When… Envelopes work well as a group gift allowing everyone to pool their money together for the different envelopes.

Try to surprise someone every day and see how it makes you feel.
