Rolling Pin Money Gift Idea
We love the clever play-on-words of this unique money gift idea – and the fact that your gift recipient also gets a useful kitchen tool!
You’ll first have to purchase a rolling pin, and we suggest a high-quality marble one with a small stand, like the one pictured here.
Wrap the rolling pin with dollar bills of any denomination, securing them with a small piece of tape at the back. To complete the presentation, attach the free printable “Enjoy Rolling the Dough” tag around the rolling pin. A useful and super unique way to give money!
We think this money gift idea is especially fitting as a housewarming gift, for newlyweds, or anyone who loves to bake.
Cookie Dough Money Gift Idea
For this fun money gift idea, you’ll need to pick up some cookie dough from your local grocery store. You can opt for the refrigerated roll of dough and secure a few bills by tying the tag around it, or grab a bag or container of edible dough, empty the contents, and re-fill with cash!
Attach the “Thought You Could Use A Little Extra Dough” tag and you’ve got one hard-to-resist money gift that’s especially perfect as a “gag” for teenagers, college students or graduates.
(editor’s note: the edible cookie dough you see in the pictures here was purchased from Joann)
