It’s no surprise that designing gift cards is one of the best parts of my job here at Giftogram.

Whether it’s silly, serious, light-hearted or just plain crazy, there’s no better feeling than seeing the look on someone’s face when they open up a card you took the time to pick out just for them.

And although I love them all, there are a handful of Giftogram card designs that always seem to end up in my "favorites "column for one reason or another. It could be my sense of humor or it could just be that I just love how light-hearted, eye-catching, and universally lovable they are.

Here are my top 6 favorite designs.

Super Hero Card

Superhero

This is a twist on a superhero theme that popularly rises to the top of employee appreciation designs. Instead of using a stereotypical superhero image, I thought it would be fun to let the recipient to BE the superhero with their own cut-out mask. Get’s me every time.

Floral Thank You Card

Floral Thanks

You don’t have to be a gardener or know anything about plants to enjoy a classic floral design.  I love this card because it’s timeless, coordinates with practically any logo, and says “Thank You” in a humble and sophisticated way.

Retirement Sloth

Slow Down

It’s time to slow it down a notch and enjoy your retirement like this adorable sloth. Drink a cup of coffee, hang on a tree branch, do whatever it is that sloths do, but most importantly take it really slooooooooow and enjoy it.

Cupcake Man Birthday Card

Party Animal

"Cupcake Man", as he’s lovingly known in the Giftogram office, is one of my favorites, because well… he’s an adorable cupcake with little arms, legs, and a big smiling face holding birthday candles. I don't think I really need to say much more than that.  If we were to choose a Giftogram mascot, it would be this guy. 

Cheers To You Card

Cheers to You

In the spirit of inanimate objects with faces, Cheers to You is a fun way to say "nice work" in a light-hearted and playful way. Who doesn’t enjoy a pint after a noble achievement? I’m also a huge fan of the color “maliblue” so this one is a win-win all around.

Welcome Aboard Card

Welcome Aboard

What better way to welcome your newest recruits than with a pirate suited up for his first day on the job? Complete with a briefcase, and his trusty parrot, “Welcome Aboard” just puts a big smile on my face.
