Get Creative When Giving Teens Gift Money

Wednesday, November 19th, 2008

Piggy bank from German bank HASPA, around 1970.Denise Witmer, over at 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
