Among the classic wedding gift ideas, money gifts are undoubtedly particularly popular. If you decide on such a wedding gift, you are certainly on the right track. If you don’t know the bride and groom very well, a gift of money reduces the possibility of not meeting the bride and groom’s taste. So the bride and groom can decide for themselves how to invest the money. If you don’t want to hand over a white envelope with banknotes, you can get a little creative and think of something exciting.

Gift idea from a book

Perhaps consider an original packaging for your cash gift. How about a self-designed collage in which you insert the banknotes or hide them? Design your work of art so that the banknotes cannot be seen at first glance. But if the recipient does not notice anything, there is nothing wrong with informing them that there is something valuable in the collage. Another great idea to hand over money is with the folded bills.

You can also present the cash gift creatively in a treasure chest that you have arranged yourself. Get a wooden box that you decorate with a personal engraving of your choice. The names of the bride and groom and the date of the wedding day, as well as hearts, flowers or swallows can decorate the wooden box. The individual banknotes can be rolled tightly and attached to a cord with a flower made of paper or foam rubber. Tie the remaining bills until you have a flower necklace. Now you can fill the wooden box with decorative grass or hay and place the flowers on it.
