Shopping for gifts is something we all love to do. Buying things for our near and dear ones and watching a smile spread across on their face is really a priceless moment. The joy of gifting things to others cannot be described.
There are times when you might feel perplexed thinking about the right gift. That is when one feels giving money can be a better option, as the recipient can at least purchase something he/she likes or can save it for a rainy day.
Money is a good idea to gift teens when you don't find a suitable gift. Yet, there are many who feel gifting money does not really seem a very nice option, as it does not look personalized. However, there are many creative ways to give it a personal touch. It also removes that initial awkward feeling one gets while gifting money for any occasion.
Creative and Fun Ways to Gift Money
Piggy bank
Buy a tiny piggy bank or any such fun gift that has a combination lock. Place the money inside this, and wrap it up. Gifting a piggy bank that has a combination lock will also teach the recipient the importance of saving money. This idea can be specially useful for little ones
A treasure hunt will work well with teens. Mark particular areas around the house and leave clues. Once you give the recipient the first clue, he/she will have a fun time solving the puzzle. Finding money once the last clue has been resolved will add to the excitement and take away the otherwise 'drab feeling' of receiving money as a gift.
If it is a birthday you are planning for, tape the money to the tail of the balloon. This will make it appear like a kite tail. Let the balloons loose into the room once the recipient wakes up. Let them float around the room, but make sure that the windows are closed, or else someone else may have a happy time with the cash gift!
Wallet
Gifting cash to young ones can be dicey as they spend everything at once. To avoid this, make discount coupons at home and decide the amount to be gifted. Allot a certain amount as shopping expense and some for movies. The recipient can then come to you with the coupon, as and when he/she wishes to spend the money.
Money Origami Snowflake
Making money origami is a neat idea. However, this would require practice. Browse online or read books on origami. Once you get the hang of it, you can make origami items without tearing the notes.
These creative ideas to give money as a gift are bound to delight recipients. Gifting money is no longer a boring task as you can see.
