So, it’s your close friend or family member’s birthday celebration coming up and you have no idea what to get them. Instead of getting last minute well intended but often missed gifts, why not consider gifting money towards something more meaningful? That’s what most people prefer anyways (sometimes they’re just too shy to admit to it!). But how can you or should you give money gifts? Well you have the standard envelope approach or you can read this blog to find out some creative ideas we’ve come up with.
MONEY GIFT IDEAS FOR ANYONE AND ANY OCCASION
You can simply buy a few transparent pastel color, inflatable balloons and fill them up with confetti and rolled up bank notes. Don’t forget about the air – could be quite useful as well 🙂
MONEY GIFTS FOR WEDDINGS
As a part of wedding tradition, after the ceremony, many young couples leave for their honeymoon in a decorated with tins car as a “just got married” symbol. You can use this as an inspiration to create a mini version with a toy car and attached bills. This project doesn’t require specific origami skills 😄
If the “to be married” couple is thinking about (or in the process of ) buying a house, offering them some financial support could we very much appreciated. If you think they’d enjoy some sense of humor you could fill up a plastic toy bucket with sand and stick some bills in it! It will probably be one of the most memorable gifts they will have received!
MONEY GIFTS FOR BABY SHOWER
After the wedding it often does not take too long before the couple announces that they are expecting a new addition to the family. If you can’t decide what to get them as a gift (what type of clothes, what size, which toys etc) surprise them with an originally packed money gift/ These self-made baby prams are just adorable!
GIVING MONEY GIFT AS A GROUP
If you’re still looking for the right gift idea, for the right occasion, then we recommend collecting money together as a group towards a bigger and more meaningful gift. For example you can use Leetchi.com, the personal crowdfunding website, to club together with friends and family into an online money pot. You can set as a target any desired amount and at the end decide to buy a present or simply give money to the beneficiary! It’s a fast, secure and convenient way to organise gifts for birthdays, weddings, baby showers and much more.
