A gift card bouquet is seriously so easy and perfect for pretty much any occasion including Mother’s Day, birthdays, coach gift, teacher gift, graduation and Christmas! Here’s everything you’ll need to make your own.
So, this gift card bouquet happened to be for our preschool teacher. It is her very last year of teaching so all of the parents pitched in to get her something nice. In total, we got $350! Here’s how I made it.
Buy the gift cards
Gift cards are great because the person you are buying for gets to splurge on something she wouldn’t normally buy herself. I tried to buy a variety of gift cards. Plus, you can order a lot of them on Amazon and save some time. I ended up buying gift cards to the following places:
- Cheesecake Factory (restaurant)
- Local day spa
- Movie theater
- Italian restaurant
- Smoothie restaurant
- Coldstone Creamery
- Book store
Make tissue paper flowers
Tissue paper flowers are so easy but they add so much color and pop to your gift card bouquet. I made nine flowers of different varieties. All you need is the following:

Assemble your gift card bouquet
Once your flowers are done and the gift cards are purchased, you’ll need just a couple more things to throw it all together:
Place the floral foam into the basket or tin. Then, hot glue the gift cards to the non-pointy end of the skewers and then push them strategically into the floral foam. Add the gift card (hot glued to skewers) as the very last step.
The look on our preschool teacher’s face was priceless when we gave her the bouquet. She loved it so much she started crying. We could tell it meant so much to her, especially since it was her last year of teaching.
