Everyone likes to receive money as a gift,
but giving money in a card can get boring.
Here are seven unique ways to give money
that will surprise and delight the recipient.
Leave A Legacy: Be Your Own Banker! Money you are already spending can make you rich, provide a stable income over your whole lifetime, and still leave millions of dollars for your heirs. Think about how much you are paying banks right now. They are charging you as much as 12% interest to loan money to you. Then there are those obnoxious $25 Overdraft Fees. Wouldn't that money feel better if it stayed in YOUR pocket instead of theirs?
Cut several 10 inch ribbons and tie several dollar bills in the middle to make a bowtie.
Next, Tie the ribbon strands to the open spokes of the umbrella.
While holding the umbrella partway open, push all of the ribbons and money into the umbrella and close it up so they can't be seen.
Imagine the surprise when the umbrella opens.DUMP TRUCK
Buy a toy dump truck and fill it with unrolled coins then wrap the dump truck as usual.
Tie some unused coin wrappers into your bow so that the child can enjoy rolling the coins later after the party.
This idea also works great as a whimsical gift for a construction worker
or -- at a retirement party for a truck driver
Buy a toy piggy bank or combination lock bank and fill it with cash as a smart way to teach kids to start saving money. Open a savings account in your child or grandchild's name as another way to give money that will be used wisely.
The home computer has made coupon books easy and professional looking. Trying to think creatively about what your loved one needs is the hardest part of making meaningful coupons.
Would your husband love his own indoor tailgate party with a coupon for a night of uninterrupted football coverage complete with his favorite snacks and drinks?
Or maybe your young teenage daughter needs a coupon book offering taxi rides anywhere her and her friends want to be chauffeured for the night?
You get the idea. Be creative.
Cut a small tree branch with lots of smaller branches coming off the main one.
Mix plaster of paris with water for a stiff consistency and add it to a flower pot or other container. If you are using a terracotta pot make sure you cover the bottom drainage hole with plastic wrap or tape before filing it with the plaster.
Next, insert the tree branch and let it harden overnight. Using hot glue add Spanish moss to cover the top of the plaster. You can also hot glue silk plant leaves to the branches for a realistic effect.
Last, tie money bills to the tree branches for a unusual gift.
Fold bills in half and roll tightly into miniature roses.
Secure the roses with a craft wire or florist tape adding a silk stem and leaves as you wrap.
Put the dollar roses in a fancy tissue lined box or beautiful vase with real baby's breath and floral filler for a very romantic way to give money!
