Holiday Gift Ideas -- The Snomee Gift Card Holder/Snow Globe (Review)

Giving a gift card this holiday season?  Why not dress it up with a snow globe gift card holder from Snomee. I was recently sent their handyman snow globe to review, and have to say that I have not seen anything like this before. 

This 2-in-1 gift is a novel idea.  Since giving gift cards has become popular, and the norm today, there really hasn't been a fun and festive way to share these "you decide what you want to buy" gifts.  Don't get me wrong, I love giving and receiving gift cards, as it makes things so much easier for those hard to shop for people.  In my family, we each give each other a gift card to our favorite restaurants.  That way, when we don't feel like cooking one night, we can take the family out to dinner, courtesy of Nana and Papa, Uncle and Auntie, etc.  These types of gift cards come in handy especially for our family, as there are days that the girls are so off the walls, that the last thing I want to do is have to worry about making something for dinner.

But, whenever we exchange gift cards at Christmas, we do so in a card, or those make-shift cards that are standard when you buy a gift card from the story.  Not very appealing as a gift, but what other ways can you dress up a gift card?  Well, thanks to the folks at Snomee, they have done just that.  With their snow globe gift card holders, you simply place the gift card in the base of the globe, and are ready to give.  There are so many fun ways of giving this gift card holder.  Because people win not be expecting a gift card to be hidden in the base, they will think you are merely giving them a snow globe for Christmas.  Once the puzzled look is gone, you can surprise them by telling them to open the base for a surprise.  Or, when you purchase a Snomee snow globe online, you can choose to have it shipped in a nice gift box.  Again, the recipient will be surprised to find a snow globe when they open this tasteful box, but it is a great way to hide a gift under the tree.  I also think it would be nice to have an assortment of Snomee snow globes on display on the mantle.  People can look at the globes, pick them up and shake them, and then when it comes time to hand out your gifts, you can pass them around to the appropriate person.  

The snow globe can be used over and over again to store gift cards, or merely as a decorative piece to display for the holidays (or year round if you have a snow globe collection).  Gift card giving will not be the same once you begin using Snomee snow globes to stash the gift cards in.

So, if you are a gift card giver, why not pick up a few of these snow globes to use this holiday season?  They really are a fun way to give a gift card.
