Spas – Take advantage of the coming holidays. Encourage undecided customers to give spa gift certificates rather than busying themselves for presents. Make the design simple. Remove unnecessary details and go for readable fonts. Maintain enough space and provide blank lines where they can fill out the names of the recipients and the corresponding prices of chosen services.

Restaurants – Reward your loyal customers. Provide them with a freebie of their choice. Include a picture of the product you're offering to make the certificates more attractive. Emphasize that it's “free” and that they can choose whatever food they want as long as it doesn't exceed the amount indicated in the certificate.

Culinary Schools – Invite more students to enroll in short courses. Distribute custom gift certificates that give the recipient a chance to attend an initial cooking session. If they find it interesting, it’ll be easier to convince them to pay for a full course. Emphasize the school name and logo as some clients may opt to check your background first. Remember to include your contact number and the school's address.
