For my mother-in-law’s birthday, I bought her a gift card to a local shop that specializes in flavor infused olive oils and balsamic vinegars.
I knew she’d love it because my boss loved her Premium Olive Oil and Vinegar With State-Shaped Cutting Board gift that I gave her for Christmas from the same store.
I gave her a gift card so she could pick out her own flavors of olive oil and balsamic vinegar but a gift card just isn’t much fun to open. So what did I do?
I added a “thoughtful twist” to the gift card by creating a cute card on the easy peasy photo editing website PicMonkey. I combined a photo of my son, a chalkboard overlay, some doodle heart overlays, and text that said:
Oil always love my Mimi!
(Instead of “Grandma” my mother-in-law goes by “Mimi.”)
I coaxed my 22-month old son to hand his Mimi the cute card and gift card. Of course, she melted when she saw the face of her handsome grandson on the card. Then she laughed at the clever use of play on words with “oil.”
People always get tickled at the use of puns or play on words so they’re wonderful to pair with a gift or gift card.
Here is a list of other fun play on words you can use. Many of them are happen to be food puns! Yum!
- Olive you
- Wine not…
- Thanks a latte
- Donut know what I’d would do without you
- Words cannot espresso how much you mean to me
- I mustache you a question…
- We are mint to be
- I like you s’more each day
- Some bunny loves you
- Perfect pear
- You make miso happy
- Owl love you forever
- Orange you sweet/lucky/glad
- Let’s taco about…
- Enjoy a night of Bach to Bach music
