We all know cash is king as a bar or bat mitzvah gift, but since so many give it, it can be a tad (yawn) boring. Bump up the excitement of gifting bucks with these creative ideas:
A big balloon filled with bills and confetti is a festive way to present a monetary gift.
Money doesn’t really grow on trees, but you can make it look like it by crafting a topiary of bills in a hand painted pot.
A pizza box and a round base is all you need to make a dollar bill pizza. Many pizzerias will give you an extra box after dining, so think ahead when you next go out for slices.
Fill an empty facial tissue box with bills, taped together end –to-end with pretty washi tape. Decorate the outside with a message to the recipient reminding them to not “blow” it all in one place!
Present the bar/bat mitzvah kid with a fresh new wallet, filled with bills and/or gift cards. Combine cash with a lasting, useful reminder of your gift!
