Not only for an adult, but also for a child, it can be very difficult to choose the right thing that will make him happy.
Today, even children, thanks to ubiquitous advertising, want to get very expensive toys - smartphones, tablets, laptops. And even if their dreams are less expensive, they want some specific thing, with a certain design and color scheme. Guessing these nuances is not always within the power of even the closest, because everyone presents his dream in his own way. If this is a doll, then it should be exactly the same as that of a girlfriend, and dressed in the same style and color.

The most popular and frequent occasion for a solemn gathering is a birthday. And if you love this person and cherish his good mood, you should not arrange surprises with your gift that may disappoint him. Money will always come in handy for him, and he will find something to spend it on in order to please himself, which cannot be guaranteed with a specific gift. Everyone has their own cemetery of useless gifts that invariably accumulate after every important event in life, and birthdays are by no means an exception to the rule. It is possible that the one who gave this thing liked it very much and would definitely have been pleasant to him, but the birthday man turned out to be indifferent and useless, and he, disappointed, put itaway. In order to avoid such awkward situations, it is still better to deal with the original design of money as a gift. Thus, you can please a loved one by giving him some amount in the original "package".
When choosing an idea for the design of money, one should distinguish between ideas for men and women. The preferences and dreams of different sexes are mostly different, but there can be, so to speak, unisex ideas - suitable in both cases. They can even be used not only for a birthday, but also for other celebrations, accordingly beating the text of the congratulation. For example, if you bring a head of fresh cabbage as a gift, in which bills are inserted between the leaves, with the words “so that you don’t have cabbage” or “a good cabbage harvest”, it will be unexpected and pleasant. In addition, the wish for financial prosperity is always on topic - both for a simple birthday, and for a wedding - for a newly-made family, and even for an anniversary, when cabbage can be decorated with banknotes of the desired denomination - 20, 20 + 5, 20 + 10, 20 + 20, 50, 50+10 and so on.
Another common idea is an umbrella with banknotes suspended inside its dome. For the birthday man and the hero of the day, you can use the theme in the text of the congratulation - let the umbrella cover you from adversity and trouble, and for the newlyweds - the main thing is that they have always been together under one umbrella, which will protect them from destructive everyday life and life's turmoil.
In a balloon
Another idea suitable for absolutely everyone and completely low-budget, but very festive - buy an ordinary balloon - simple or elegant, put a handful in itbeautiful sweets, small chocolate medals, confetti, a couple of ribbons of colored serpentine and money rolled into a tube or folded to your liking - rectangles, corners, squares. Put a colorful wish there and inflate the balloon. Outside, it can be decorated with ribbons, bows, streamers, inscriptions and drawings.
"Tubes" and chest
Another equally simple way to give money is to roll each bill into a tube and tie it with a smart gift ribbon. The resulting tubes are randomly folded into a tight plastic bag, to which a greeting card or handwritten application with the original text of the congratulation is fastened with a stapler.
You can make a minimal gift decoration out of birthday money by putting it in a decorative chest and tying it with a festive bow. You can add coins of various denominations and from different countries to the banknotes to make it look like pirate treasures, add some jewelry and a comic map of the treasure island. Beat as booty taken from the pirates on the way to the holiday. Of course, all this can be done with a box, but a chest is more interesting and authentic.
In a postcard
A very easy way to give money is to buy a beautiful postcard and stick some colorful pockets on it. They need to invest banknotes, tubes or curly twists. Each pocket can be individual or one large - thisalready at the discretion of the author and depending on the design of the postcard. You can also make a postcard yourself by sticking pictures of wishes on it - a beautiful estate, an expensive car, model men or women, piles of money or mountains of coins, an elegant yacht, beautiful resorts and much more that will please the birthday boy.
In the same way, you can make a gift with money for an anniversary. Young anniversaries wish to achieve great heights in life and have all this, for adults - to enjoy all this splendor to the fullest, already knowing a lot about many life situations. For those who leave the team due to retirement, you can make a collage of photos of colleagues, placing the hero of the day in the center. After printing and laminating this work, stick with adhesive tape a bill for each portrait. All this can be arranged in a beautiful frame.

Congratulations with money for men
It's no secret that boys play with different toys than girls love. And in adulthood, these interests sometimes drastically diverge. For them, money as a gift is just very appropriate. Making congratulations on money for a man should carry some thematic meaning that is understandable to the person presented. For example, if he is saving money for a car, give him a card with a wisha convenient track under the wheels and a figurine of a car lined with banknotes. You can attach the parts of such a car to the base with a transparent narrow adhesive tape so that the money does not tear when removed.
If a man dreams of buying his own yacht or likes to sail, then you can make a cute boat out of an oblong box or basket. The bow and stern can be decorated with plasticine, and banknotes can be used as a sail. In order not to make holes in the bills, you can glue a small piece of thin tape along their edges, slightly protruding beyond the edges, and already pierce this tape with a thin knitting needle on which the sails are strung. By the way, this idea can also be used to congratulate women, instead of the bow and stern, using the cone-shaped sweets "Meteor" and filling the deck with sweets. For a woman, a wish for pleasant travels, a sea cruise, a millionaire fan is suitable. And even for pensioners, such a congratulation would be appropriate, since now there is time and you can visit many interesting places.
If you strain your imagination, then there are many thoughts on how to present money as a gift to the birthday man. The design in the box can be very diverse. For example, smoking men can be presented with a beautiful cigarette box filled with banknotes twisted in the form of thin long tubes. The same trick can be applied to women, only with a box of sweets, where bills are rolled into cylinders, beautifully tied and stacked in a row - if the box is small. If the box is larger, then in each compartment, along with sweets or instead of sweets, put folded assorted banknotes -tubes, squares, triangles, circles.
If a man dreams of his own house - to build a small hut from banknote tubes. If there is not much money, you can lay out only the roof from bills folded four times. Or buy a toy house and put the money in a pipe or window.
You can also make the Order of the "Lord of Money" on the chest - tie banknotes folded in a circle on a beautiful ribbon - wrap it in cling film or gold foil and solemnly assign this high title to it. Ideas for congratulating women are no less interesting.

Inside put beautiful sweets, folded banknotes, small cards with wishes, some bright beads or pebbles. Close the neck with beautiful paper or cloth, tie with a bright ribbon in a flower or a bow.
For a woman, a money cake is well suited, which is lined up from folded banknotes in a tiered manner. True, a lot of banknotes will go to the cake, but a woman will be happy, especially if they are of high denomination and in popular currency.
A woman can be presented with a necklace of money - twistedtube and strung on a ribbon or ribbon, or folded like an accordion and intercepted in the middle to make a flower.
