Money Gift Idea


Every Christmas we bring a $20 generic gift to my sister's house for a gift exchange. This year I brought a money pizza....we all love to get money as a gift. We gathered in a circle (there were 20) and each person held their gift in their lap. I instructed the participants that I was going to read Twas The Night Before Christmas and when I said the word THE, they should pass their gifts to the person on the right. Once I was done with the Christmas story, the participants kept the gift that was now sitting in their lap. 

Joe went to one of the local pizza places and got me a small box. You can also use a large one. I used double sided tape to attach the money to the bottom of the fox.  I fanned the money and added some pepperoni (dollar coins) on top. 

I am joining Foodie Friday and Everything Else at Rattlebridge Farm. 
Thanks for stopping by!
