cute birthday morning surprise - I did this, instead of the crepe paper you tear through, for my daughter who shares a room. I KNEW she would not be the first one out the door, and this could be enjoyed by her (and her sisters) all day.
YES PLEASE Money Balloons - a cool way to present money as a gift, esp for a young person (as opposed to a boring check in a card). I have a friend whose parents blow up a balloon and put a one dollar bill in it and have the number of balloons for how old their kid is on their birthday and then after they open their presents they can pop open the balloon and get their $. very cute.
Send or deliver a box full of balloons to a child you love. Fill each balloon with a little love note, joke, dollar or other treat. She’s Crafty came up with the idea to send her nephew 20 $1 bills in balloons for his birthday, but I also think it would be great fun with other things besides just cash, and to do it “just because” for a child (or two or three!) who could use a fun surprise.
Thrifty & Fun Birthday Cake Gift! "Are you looking for a gift to give a teenager or friend for their birthday? Look no further! This is a fun, quick, easy and satisfying gift idea for all ages!" (Great jumping off point! Could be used with any type of canned drink!)
Using this for Christmas too! Cute way to give money as a gift. Make it generic by saying "a bag full of money" instead of birthday money.
