Hands-on with the awesome Tim Hortons Holiday Tim Card holder

Yes. This. Is. Awesome.

It’s not often that one gets excited for a gift card. Most of them are boring and simply get lost in the drawer.

However, a new sensation has arrived on Canadian soil. Upon ordering a delicious Steeped Tea today I found myself staring the most beautiful packaging for a gift card. Jaw dropped in awe.

Behold — the Tim Hortons Holiday Tim Card holder. This is a work of art. Museum worthy. Sure, a waste of paper, but a work of art!


The experience starts by grabbing a Holiday Tim Card — which says ‘Comfort & Joy’ — and makes you want to instantly feed your addiction. Then you grab the holder/envelope/packet and bend the middle to be greeted with an eye-opening cup of Tim Hortons. Once again tempting you to feed your habit. Continuing on their festive theme, Timmies has outfitted the cup with their holiday design and it’s about the size of a small – which you can literally grab with one hand. Brilliant.

Certainly worth giving or receiving this piece of genius this year.


The only thing missing is some sort of Tim Hortons signature smell or their jingle – perhaps these could be included next year.

I'm obsessed with Tim Hortons. It runs through my veins and I've probably spent enough money downing Steeped Tea's that I could have purchased my own franchise.
