Original methods of delivery

You can hide a pack of banknotes in advance in a safe place in the birthday man’s apartment, spreading out notes with clues. Or the hero of the occasion can find one bill each, performing certain tasks. The quest does not have to be limited to one apartment. It all depends on the imagination of the guests.
- Balloon money. This way will look really festive and the birthday boy will like it. You should put banknotes in balloons in advance, inflate them and decorate the room.

When he reaches for the money, the guests must force the machine to leave using the control panel, thus the guy will have to run for the desired gift. Instead of a car, you can use a toy train that will deliver money to a happy birthday person by rail.

In the middle of the celebration, guests will order pizza (or sushi, rolls), the delivery person will be one of their friends or relatives.

How to make a cash gift?
A gift in the form of banknotes requires a creative approach. How to make a monetary gift to your beloved man, boss, dad or grandfather for an anniversary in order to evoke vivid emotions and genuine joy in the birthday man. It is worth paying attention to the list of ideas.
Treasures in the chest
Every man will love this look. In the purchased chest, in addition to money, you can put some jelry, chocolate coins in gold wrappers — everything that will resemble a precious treasure.
Another original way. You can buy a bag or sew it yourself, decorating it beautifully. To decorate the bag yourself, you will need to stock up on threads, scissors, sets, ribbon, and a fabric bag. In this case, sets need to be folded down the bag, after which you add banknotes and a postcard with a congratulatory inscription, for example, “for your beloved dad.”
Gift in the form of matryoshka
You need to purchase boxes of different sizes, large and small. Then put them one inside the other in the form of nesting dolls — from large to small. At the same time, bills do not have to be hidden in the last small box. For the effect of surprise, it is better to put a note there with some funny inscription, for example, “boxes are needed in the household.” And the bills themselves can be hidden at the bottom of the box on the other side. Let the birthday man be confused, but then there will be no limit to his surprise and delight.
At the same time, the search for a gift itself will become a fun adventure not only for the hero of the occasion, but also for each guest.
This method involves a play on words. Instead of a bank as a financial institution, a real bank (of any size) will be used. You can fill it with both paper bills and small change. It is also not forbidden to add a couple of comic ones to real money. You can decorate the jar with a fancy inscription, from “blanks for the winter” to “green cabbage.” Such an original approach is sure to be appreciated by a man of any age.
Frame with money
You can buy a ready-made frame in the store or make it yourself. This will require an A5 frame and one banknote (for example, 5 thousand). Before putting a bill under the glass, it is better to add a sheet of colored paper in a contrasting shade. Then it is better to stick a congratulatory funny inscription there, put a bill and close the frame with glass.
The gift is also best wrapped beautifully.
Such a gift will look unusual and original. Such a tree is easy to purchase in a store, and banknotes can already be attached to its branches. Or you can roll them into tubes and make a tree entirely out of money. But making such a gift yourself from scratch will require serious skills, so it will be easier to purchase a tree in a gift shop.
We can say that these are two gifts. A man is given not only a good umbrella, but also money, which is fastened in advance on the inside with a fishing line or multi-colored ribbons. What will be the surprise of the birthday boy when opening the umbrella.
A gift in the form of socks can seriously upset a man, but if you put an inscription on the package that socks are magical, the gift will immediately sparkle with other colors. And while the hero of the occasion is thinking about what the magic is, you can tell him to put his hands inside his socks.
There he will expect a real present in the form of money.
If you show imagination, you can make real sculptures from banknotes in the form of a house, a ship or some kind of animal.
As for small origami from a bill, you can make them yourself, but it should be understood that not every man will like to receive crumpled money as a gift. For example, to make an origami box sculpture, you need to follow these steps:
- fold the banknote in half, then fold each part in half again, so you get 4 parts;
- then the banknote must be unrolled;
- the right and left sides are then folded to the crease in the center;
- after that, it is necessary to fold each corner to get a triangle (equal to one quarter of a banknote);
- further, each inner edge is folded twice, at the first folding the edge should meet the edge of the triangle, and at the second it should lie on the triangle;
- further, each fold must be lifted, while carefully holding them with your fingers;
- after the edges rise at the top and bottom;
- the corners at the tips are compressed to a square shape;
- box is ready.
Important! You can make another one that will serve as a cover for the previous one. Candies can be placed inside the box.
To make a cash gift sparkle with new unusual colors, you just need to apply a creative approach and decorate the present in an original way. The birthday boy will definitely appreciate the efforts and be satisfied.
