Need a Last Minute Holiday Gift? Gift Cards + Slime = Match Made in Kid Heaven! #Giveaway #ChoiceCards17

This is a sponsored post. All opinions expressed are 100% my own.

This Christmas I have been focusing on these three. After moving to a different state, being away from family and friends, these three need time and attention. So when Choice Gift Cards approached me on doing a post about their new cards, I was sold! Anything that keeps me out of the malls and hanging out with this bunch is worth it! The NEW Dining Out, Teen’s Choice and Ultimate Eats Gift Cards are perfect for friends, family, your favorite teacher, stocking stuffers, the postman, or those people that have literally everything!

The Dining Out gift card is perfect for those people on your list where you don’t know their favorite restaurant, or if you want to leave the restaurant decision up to them.  The Teen’s Choice card is perfect for those teens in your life that are picky. Do they want smoothies, do they love ice cream, do they want to watch a movie? Leave it up to them! Lastly, the Ultimate Eats gift card is perfect for so many restaurants and leaves the choice in the hands of the recipient! Give many of the best brands all on one card, without a fee! <—- LOVE THAT!

Do you need a clever way to hide the gift card? Think slime in a jar + Choice Gift Card! Visit my Christmas Pinterest Board for more gift wrapping/gift card hiding ideas:
