Most of my nieces and nephews would prefer cash this year. I would like to wrap it differently. They are ages 11 to 24. Any ideas?

My mom got my kids cash one year in a puzzle box. You had to solve the puzzle, or get the ball in the hole, or something like that, in order to get to the money. Something like these: https://www.amazon.c...sl_6wk8cbtacr_e

My stepmom just showed me a lot of ideas she saw on Pinterest for gifting money being as though my oldest is 17. She showed my the ornament, a flip flop with “money” toes and a pizza box with “money” slices and coins for the toppings.

Inside Slipper socks or Christmas socks

Wrap around candy bar

Inside an ornament

Inside a holiday mug

 

Inside a small box, wrap that inside a larger box, wrap that inside an even larger box.

I had an aunt once wrap it inside a box with rocks to deceive you.

I've seen money folded on a piece of cardboard to look like a button down shirt, then walked inside a box like a regular present.

2 of my kids are getting cash as their large gifts this year. I always try to find a new way to wrap it - so this year I purchased them each a different style of wooden advent calendar (to be used for years to come) and each has a wooden drawer for each of the 24 days which will be filled with folded denominations of different size bills. Figured that way it was 2 gifts in one. :)

I’ve done a box of blown up balloons with candy, confetti and money inside the balloons so they had to pop the balloons to see what was inside.

I’ve also done a jar of their favorite candy with a tube in the center that had money. So from the outside of the jar it just looked like candy until they actually opened the jar.

One year my nephew asked for money and snacks. So I got him a box that had a bunch of his favorite snacks and I included the pizza box with money

How about make it into origami money boxes/presents, or do a saran wrap game. Or play a trick. Get an old pair of shoes and stuff the money inside of it so when they open it they think that it is there gift.

I'm not a "fun" person, so I dont really like playing tricks too much.

I've given cash in a new wallet, or a zipper pouch.
See, no fun.

But I do like the idea of the money inside the advent calendar.

This isn't the same situation, but a few years ago I had about 15 Target promo GCs I was going to give my daughter for her baby shower, and was struggling with a cute presentation. The room we were using happened to have an undecorated Christmas tree in it (it was November and was going to be decorated after our event). So I tied up the gift cards, baby socks, and other small items and decorated the tree.
You could do that with cash too

My aunt once put tic-tac breath mints in a small jewelry box with cash. She was right that the weird rattle noise it made when you shook it would throw us off our guessing game.
