A gift bouquet is a unique gift that is fun for any age. I was at a loss as to what to get Harrison for his 9th birthday and this turned out to be the perfect gift. Putting it together was easier than I anticipated and the look of it made a big impact –– his jaw dropped to the floor when he first saw it!
The fun thing about this project is that the possibilities are endless. In addition to gift cards you can add cash, small trinkets, scratchers, candy, small stuffed animal, etc. Really, anything you can tape to a skewer and you’re golden.
This is a present that is super versatile. 21st birthday? Add airplane bottles of booze. Movie themed party? Gift card to the movies, popcorn bags, and candy. 40th birthday? 40 scratchers. A gift bouquet can be customized to fit any theme and personality!
How To Make A Gift Bouquet
The very first step is to decide how many gift cards and what amounts on each gift card are within your budget. Decide what other items you’ll use in your bouquet, as well. For Harrison’s gift bouquet we did gift cards, cash, his first wallet, and filler “nine” details.
Gather Your Supplies
- A vase (I recommend one with a sturdy base)
- Flower arrangement foam
- Wooden skewers
- Filler (we used tissue paper)
- Tape or glue dots
- Gifts cards, cash, and other gifts
Assemble Your Bouquet
Now for the fun part! Assembling the bouquet is when it all comes together. Use your tape or glue dots to affix wooden skewers to the back of each item. Check out the quick video below to see how I did it:
