Designing for Life Events Can Trigger Gift Card Sales

With life events often having even greater impact on purchase decisions than generational categories, consider offering a variety of gift cards that recognize and celebrate key milestones, including –

  • College
  • New Career
  • Home Purchase
  • Marriage
  • Parenthood
  • Retirement
  • New Grandparent​

Even if your brand’s niche does not connect with all life stages, most brands connect with a select few, and designing gift cards accordingly can generate both purposeful and spontaneous purchases.

Looking for something to give ______________ for _______________ – this is perfect!

Hadn’t planned on a gift, but that’s a good idea for _______________!

​Multi-Appeal with Multi-Choice

Designs that resonate with newly engaged couples, first-time and repeat parents, and empty nesters are likely varied. However, consumers often make gift purchases with all these audiences in mind. To capture all their spend, offer a wide selection of gift cards with relevance to all these life junctures.

​Support for Your Goals

Bright colors and playful graphics may work great for celebrating off-to-college, but a retiree might prefer something with a travel and see-the-world look and feel. Whatever life stages you’re wanting to connect with, you can rely on the experience and expertise of PLI’s Creative Team to craft just the right gift card.
