Are you looking for ways to be creative in the gifting of Cash or Gift Cards?

  • If you are planning to give cash, swing by your local bank and get new, clean, crisp bills.
  • If you’re giving gift cards, wrap them and add a nice bow.

Taking the time to make an attractive presentation is just another part of showing how much you care – you’ve thought through the process, and didn’t just hit the drive thru on your way to see them.

Here are a couple of ideas for creative Cash or Gift Card presents:


For this tube effect, you will need:

  • Gift Card or Cash
  • an old toilet paper roll or paper towel roll
  • Tape
  • Ribbon


Slide the Gift Card into the roll.  Wrap paper around and tape. Then finish off the ends by tying ribbon.



Here is another idea:


For this festive box you will need:

  • Gift Card or Cash
  • Gift box (I use white 4×4 gift boxes that comes flat and easily fold into a nice box. Buy them in bulk to keep on hand.)
  • Tissue Paper
  • Tulle
  • Balloons


Stuff tissue paper into the box and place the Gift Card or Cash into the center.


Using tulle, wrap the box, then lay balloons (or anything else fun and festive you have on hand) over the top.


Finish off by tying bows with the tulle and fluffing the boys for a festive look.
