Are you buying gift cards this holiday season?

Buying a gift card is a bitter sweet activity for me. On one hand, I’m giving a gift that gives in two ways–you get it as a gift, then they get to go shop with it, so it kinda doubles the enjoyment. Also, of course, they get exactly what they want.

On the other hand, it’s kind of impersonal and can carry that negative connotation that I didn’t put much thought into it.

The designers at Knit Picks have saved the day.

The little sweaters in the Tidings of Joy kit are designed to fit a gift card! Now you can give a gift card inside it’s own little hand knit sweater. You get to give a hand knit treat (doubles as a holiday ornament for their tree) along with the very practical gift card. It’s a win, win, win. <
