Creative Ways to Give a Coupon Gift

Recapture the fun of an early Christmas present - a concert, trip or ski jaunt - via this little gift, a DIY diorama reminder.

We've all done it, given our teens or 20-somethings an early Christmas gift - tickets for a concert, ski equipment or even plane reservations. It's fabulous at the time, of course, but when the actual holiday rolls around, it's kind of a bummer. What do you put under the tree? This sensational DIY craft - a coupon gift of sorts - serves as both fun souvenir and gift reminder.

Much like the iTunes gift card diorama idea, this project begins with an Altoids tin too. Here's what you'll need:

  • An Altoids or similar tin. (Psst, these tins make easily customizable, creative ways to give cash too.)
  • Double-stick tape
  • Foam tape
  • Card stock paper
  • Scissors
  • And photos or images from the concert, event or trip, including a shot of your teen or 20-something taken at the event

Next ... a quickie guide to help you put it together.
