4 Helpful Tips For How To Give a Gift Certificate or Gift Card



Ever find yourself struggling to find the perfect gift for a friend or loved one? The struggle is real. Fear not, help is here! This year, give them a gift that will continue to warm their hearts long after the holidays are over. You might consider gifting them with a gift certificate for a unique portrait of their furry family member! Whether it’s for Christmas or Hanukkah, we’ve got a thoughtful holiday gift for her or him for every budget and occasion.

Here are four helpful tips for how to give a gift certificate or gift card:



  1. GIVE THE GIFT CERTIFICATE WITH A HANDWRITTEN NOTE. Include a personal message somehow. Perhaps the artist can write a note for you. I offer that here at Greyboy Pet Prints.
  2. WRITE THE EXPIRATION DATE ON THE BACK OF THE CARD or give them a reminder call or email in advance. Where I am in the state of CA, gift certificates cannot expire, but that may not be the case where you live.
  3. DO AN INTRO EMAIL BETWEEN THE RECIPIENT AND THE ARTIST creating their gift to make a connection. (I’ll provide an email template below.) This increases the chance that your gift certificate would be redeemed. Both recipient and artist will appreciate your thoughtfulness!
  4. OFFER TO HELP FIND A GREAT PHOTO if the gift card is for pet portrait art. You can scroll through their social media photos they have shared or maybe in your text thread they have sent along some cute photos of their very loved pet.
