I wanted to make the inevitable gift cards feel a little more personal this year, so I made a bunch of these out of Purple Heart and maple. The center tray slides out and is routed to hold a standard gift card. Pretty simple construction, but a satisfying little project just in time for Christmas!

Excellent idea and build! I just wish that I hadn’t seen it this close to Christmas. Now I need to get to the shop to make a few.

Nice looking card holder, would also make a neat business card holder, maybe a tad bit smaller.
