Umbrellas make good practical gifts all on their own since they're so important to everyday life. But just giving someone an umbrella might not seem that thoughtful, so why not make it into a cute way to give someone a cash gift? Tape pieces of string to some bills, then tie them to the inside of the umbrella. Close the umbrella and tie it shut with a decorative ribbon. When your loved one opens the umbrella up, it will start raining money – and smiles!

Have you ever thought of giving a gift inside a pizza box? It might seem like a strange way to wrap a present at first, but just wait until the gift receiver opens it up and sees a whole pizza made out of cash! Cut some red circles out of construction paper, then roll up and arrange the bills to make them look like a pizza. Attach some coins to the red circles so that they look like pepperonis, then add them on top of the pizza. Now you've got a fantastic way to give some money to all of the pizza lovers in your life!
3. Box Of Cash Chocolates

Giving someone a box of chocolates as a gift might seem a bit unoriginal, but it's actually a great way to give someone money, too! Remove some of the chocolates from the box, fold the bills into the shape of the candy wrappers, and place them in the box with the remainder of the chocolates. Like Forrest Gump said, “Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get!"
4. Creative Cash Card

There are tons of cards out there that you can buy specifically for holding money, but they tend to be impersonal and unimaginative. To make your gift really stand out, you can make your own homemade card that also holds money. Feel free to make any clever designs you want! We chose a design from the Disney & Pixar movie, Up. Draw some balloons attached to a floating house and tape some coins onto them.
5. The Million Dollar Gift

While giving the gift of a million dollars would be incredible, almost nobody on the planet can afford that! This million dollar gift idea is a fun way to give money – even if it's not really a million dollars. Fold some $10 bills together so that the 1 is only shown once (this works better on the back of $10 bills). Display the money in a picture frame, and you're guaranteed to get a big smile from the recipient!
6. 3D Fold-Out Cash Gift Box

A present within a present – that's a really special idea! Start by making a personalized card, then fold up a bill into the shape of a small box, as shown in the video. Tie a ribbon around the box, stick the box to the inside of the card, positioning it around the fold, and a small cash gift will pop out once the card is opened!
With these simple ideas, your cash gifts will put a smile on the face of anyone you give them to, plus your loved ones will know how much thought you put into their gift. After all, it's the thought that counts in the end!
