  1. Another great post, as usual! I left my suggestion after your full post. Hope it helps someone who is gift card-less, like me, come up with some ideas!!

  2. I think this is a great idea! In fact, you could actually make this a plan every year by saving all rewards until Christmas shopping comes around!

    Love the blog too 🙂 I am now a new follower 🙂

    Merry Christmas!
