Get creative when presenting a gift card

3D Birthday Cake

We all know that when it comes to choosing gifts for your family, mates and colleagues, you can't go wrong with an AMF gift card. Not only will they think you're an absolute legend for giving such an awesome gift, but there's a strong possibility they'll invite you along when cashing in the card, meaning you get a free game of bowling - everyone's a winner!

If you want your social circle to elevate you above legendary status to ... well, whatever's even better than legendary ... how about getting creative with how you hand over your gift?

From making your own card to hiding it inside the giftee's favourite food, there are tonnes of clever ways you could hand over the gift card. But here at AMF we like to really push the boundaries. Here are some of our favourite creative gift-giving ideas.

The hunt is on

Channel your inner Jigsaw (the villain from the Saw movies - keep up) and hatch an elaborate plan to kidnap the lucky recipient. They must complete a series of intricate tasks to free themselves and in the process discover clues that lead to the whereabouts of the card.

If this sounds like too much effort, just blindfold them and send them into a room filled with balloons. They've got to burst the balloons until they find the one containing the card. It's not really Saw-esque, but it's a helluva lot of fun!

Pack it in a box inside a box inside a box ...

Your gift recipient may not appreciate this, but you'll get a lot of laughs out of it. Pack your gift card in an endless series boxes of slightly increasing size. The bigger you can go and the more boxes you use, the better.

The longer the lucky recipient spends opening boxes, the more their excitement and anticipation grows. You could even challenge yourself to set a new record every time you give someone a gift card.
