I make no secret of it that I am just a fool for personalized gifts. It used to be that personalized gifts cost quite a bit more due to extra fees, but thanks to technology, that is no longer the case. These days you can add a personal message or a photo to almost anything for just a few dollars extra.
On GiftCard.com you can add your own image to a Visa gift card for just $5.95 (plus the denomination of the gift card) with Free Standard Shipping! My husband received this unique little photo gift for Father's Day a week early. I chose to put his new favorite photo of our children on the gift card. If you do not have a personal photo you would like to upload, you can always choose from thousands of pre-made designs from the Visa gift card gallery, which cover almost every occasion, including but not limited to Father's Day, graduations, weddings, teacher's gifts, housewarming, and much more. There is also the option to print a personalized message on the gift card at no additional charge. You can choose any denomination for your special gift card between $10 and $250. As an added bonus, your gift card is mailed to you or the recipient in a personalized greeting card of your choosing.
These Visa gift cards are currently not reloadable, meaning you cannot add additional funds to it after the gift card has been created. Despite this, I know my husband will still be keeping this card after the balance has reached zero. It does make a very unique keepsake and is an easy way to carrying around a photo of our children in his wallet without the worry of bending a fragile photograph.
