Art of the Gift Card


Gift cards can be a scourge at Christmas, a lazy substitute for the beautifully wrapped present. But at least some are creative – like this one for Mister Lube.  It’s the replica of a dashboard light, by Dave Thornhill of Toronto.  The rest of these, much as I abhor the practice, are also worth a look for their creative art and design.
