Crochet Gift Card Holder for Christmas

Gift cards are wonderful presents and no one ever complains about getting a gift card. However, I find they can be sometimes a little impersonal. Crochet to the rescue! With this adorable, festive homemade crochet gift card holder for Christmas, your gift now falls into the “super-thoughtful” category!

Crochet Christmas Gift Card Holder

The pattern holds a standard gift card (the same size as a credit card). It whips up really quickly and makes a wonderful stocking stuffer. Or, put it on the Christmas tree for a surprise on Christmas morning.

There’s a lip at the top that gets tucked into the body of the gift card holder to prevent the card from falling out. And it’s very thin so you can pop it in the mail to loved ones living away.
