Looking for money gift ideas? Check out these 27 creative ways to give cash as a gift.

Don’t you love getting cash as a gift? It’s typically at the top of my list, and I’m not alone. 

Even though I love money gifts, I have a hard time just throwing a few bills in a card and signing my name.

It just feels a little too impersonal…like you didn’t put much thought or effort into it…

I know this is silly because if you look at people’s reactions when they open a cash gift their faces light up.

But, there’s nothing better than seeing someone’s reaction when they get a money gift in a fun and creative way. The recipient gets what they want, and they also know that you put some love into giving them the perfect gift. 

Which is why when I was brainstorming gift ideas for my daughter’s graduation, I started searching for unique ways to give cash.

I came across so many fun money gift ideas, I decided to put together a big list of money gift ideas that are perfect for any occasion.
