I absolutely LOVE gift card holders! Gift cards make the best (and let’s be honest, easiest) gifts because the recipient can choose their own gift and you know they will actually like it! 

But, this treat bag can be used for so much more and the handle is perfect for hanging directly on the tree!

Here are some other items that fit perfectly inside these bags: 

1. Candy (I was able to fit 10 mint discs. I’m sure more could fit, but it does start to get heavy)

2. Lip Balm

3. Mini Lotion

4. Travel Shampoo & Conditioner

5. Deck of Cards (Cribbage anyone?)

6. Ring Box (Christmas proposals are the sweetest!) 

7. Crochet Hooks (Fits 5-6 Clover Amour hooks!)

8. Gift Cards

9. Event Tickets

10. Cash (because who doesn’t love that?!!)

Here’s how to make your own:
