Presentation! Presentation! Presentation! We are always trying to find new ways to be creative in gift giving, right? Here is one that is easy, inexpensive, colorful and makes a noise that goes POP! Gifts inside a balloon!
In a previous post, I talked about a unique wedding proposal idea. Get a decorative box that has an attached lid that will perfectly fit a blown up balloon. Write or type a note that says “POP ME” and attach it by using a stick pin to the inside of the lid.
She can use the pin to pop the balloon. Place the engagement ring inside a blown up balloon, put it inside the box and close the lid. When she opens the box, pops the balloon and sees her beautiful engagement ring, that’s when you get on bended knee to “pop the question.”
Gift cards have become a common way to give a gift. Usually it is placed in a card, an envelope or a gift bag. BOOOORING!
You can use the box and balloon idea to place a gift card inside the balloon. This is a fun way to give gift cards for any holiday. If giving multiple gift cards inside balloons, get everyone to unwrap their box, follow the instructions, and pop their balloons at the same time.
POP-POP-POP-POP and watch their reaction. It may sound like the Fourth of July at Christmas!
For a gift for him, instead of a box use a small cooler and put the balloon inside. Did you know a balloon can even hold an entire sleeve of golf balls? Really!!! Two gifts in one – the cooler and the golf balls. How cool is that?
Think of all the other small gift items you could hide inside a balloon!
Another idea is to use balloons to hide money. For my grandmother’s sweetheart’s 80th birthday, we hung balloons from the ceiling and placed a few dollars in every balloon to add up to $80.
We gave him a stick pin and told him to pop the balloons. At first he didn’t believe what he was seeing, then he popped another and another until it looked like it was raining money.
He had the biggest smile on his face! Who said money can’t bring you happiness?
You can use the “POP ME” gift idea for any occasion. It’s a unique and fun way to present a small sized gift!
What is success? It is a toy balloon among children armed with pins. – Gene Fowler
