Create the Best 2-in-1 Gifts with HP and Two SmilesCiaran Blumenfeld
Have you heard about Two Smiles? A card and a gift card — all in one! HP has always made it easy to make your own cards, and I love my HP Printers – especially the HP Envy, which is super simple to use. I can print from my laptop, desktop, and even remotely from my cell phone! It’s economical and a lot of fun to make your own personalized cards for friends and family. Two Smiles makes it even more fun to print up a card. There are dozens of great card designs that can easily be personalized with your message. But more than that, the card becomes the gift when you add on a gift from one of the dozens of gift card merchants associated with Two Smiles. It’s just a click and a print away. No more last minute runs to the supermarket or mall for a gift card! Two Smiles gift cards open up a whole world of creative gifting opportunities. They are perfect for giving on their own; however, my favorite way to give a gift card is with a personalized card and a little something extra. With so many card designs and stores that are part of Two Smiles, the possibilities are endless. Here are some winning ideas that are sure to produce at least two smiles from the recipients.
