Top 10 ways to use gift envelopes
1) Gift card / store cards
Small envelopes enable you to personalise gift cards with a pretty cover to match the theme of the gift card. Music, gaming, clothes, food – we can cover most occasions.
2) Gifting money
Gifting money at a wedding is a popular custom – and handmade wedding envelopes which can be personalised would add an extra special touch. Taylor them to the wedding theme or colour for a lovely keepsake.
Putting money inside a card is popular gift – consider putting it in a gift envelope for that extra special touch. People have used money gifts in a themed envelope for
- Travelling expeditions and camps
- Passing exams and graduating
- Baby showers
- Christmas and birthday presents
3) Lottery ticket favours
Little envelopes are an affordable ornate wedding or event favour that can hold lotto/lottery tickets.
4) Gifting printed internet vouchers.
Nowadays you can buy vouchers online – where you can print out the code for someone rather than buy a plastic throw away gift card. This might be a great way to purchase a voucher but a home printed bit of paper doesn’t exactly make a very visually attractive gift! However, print and send it inside an ornate envelope takes the gift from good to wow.
5) Chocolate gifts and favours
Little envelopes take dinner mints for guest favours and also chocolate coins – great for children’s pirate party games and treasure hunts.
6) Bereavement messages for loss of pets
The loss of a pet can be difficult – and knowing what to say can be even harder. These simple but special message envelopes can show you are thinking of them and they have a memory envelope to store things like a collar tag or other special keepsake.
7) Say congratulations
All envelopes from ohhowlovelygifts come with an ornate insert to write a special keepsake message of congratulations. Perfect for
- Exam success

- X years at work
- Birth of your baby / adoption

9) Ticket / shows gifts
Quite often people buy venue, theatre or show tickets as presents – but end up with nothing to give as they are ‘collect on the day’ only. With nothing physical to give – tell them about your gift by writing a message in a themed envelope.
10) Gift a promise
Gift a promise where a person can choose a day out or something of their choice. You can also make DIY tokens eg ‘ Redeem this for baby sitting on a night of your choosing’, ‘Redeem this for a family pizza and games/movie night’.
