Personalized Starbucks Card

While at my neighborhood Starbucks this morning (which was already decorated for Christmas!), I saw the sign for personalized Starbucks gift cards! As one of those people who buys gift cards for themselves so they don’t have to carry around cash, I always get excited when new cards come out. This is better! :)

While Starbucks is advertising them as great holiday gifts, I thought these might make good little gifts for ceremony readers or other wedding helpers.

I went to the website, and created these:

(The Mr. Toucan version)

The personalization fee, which includes processing, printing, and shipping, is $4.

What do you think? Would you give a gift card as part of a thank-you, or is it still too impersonal?

    but watch out for the transaction fees on the visa gift card (like most gift cards), and it expired after one year. seems like sbux card is the better deal.

    I gave a gift card to our ceremony reader- she just got a puppy so a Pet Smart gift card worked well. (Plus around your wedding it is easier to carry around a nice card instead of a box to give them.)

    I guess my comment didn’t post. Gift cards are always appreciated and easy to transport (can be an issue when you have to carry around last minute wedding projects…) I gave our ceremony reader a Pet Smart gift card since she’s just gotten a puppy. It wasn’t a huge gift but certainly a good Thank You.
