Get Creative When Giving Teens Gift Money

Wednesday, November 19th, 2008

Piggy bank from German bank HASPA, around 1970.Denise Witmer, over at About.com: Teens, has some terrific advice for parents and relatives who want to give a teen money for the holidays. (And what teen doesn't love the idea of receiving a little mad money?)

Here are a few of Witmer's suggestions:

  • Put the money in a new wallet and wrap the wallet.
  • Stick the money in a festive envelope and place it in a book on learning about money.
  • Disperse the money into gift cards to your teen’s favorite
    stores. Add a card that sets a date to go shopping and spend some time
    together.
