Since our nieces and nephews became teenagers, we’ve opted to give them cash as gifts so that they can shop for the items they want. While I’m not against putting money in a card as a gift, it’s a lot more fun to give money in a creative way so every Christmas we try to think of a new way to gift the money. Our nieces and nephews always seem to enjoy seeing what we’ve planned for the year as well.
This year, I grabbed some holiday Pez dispensers from the craft store. I rolled the money as tightly as possible and wrapped it in a plastic sandwich bag (so that they could still use the dispensers for candy later without the ick of money germs). Simple and sweet, but fun!
