Have you seen my notebook?
This one is for the bookworms and the writers. Try and compile the money you intend to give in the form of a neat notebook. Wrap and pretty it up. Only when the notebook is opened will then person know what the gift is. So if you want to surprise someone, this is for you.
This one might seem a little, but there is a reason the trick is so commonly used. Just fold the money up into any kind of origami, you can go the classic way and fold a crane or try to be a bit more daring and create a dragon.
Your fortune says wealth!
Building on the idea of origami money; you can fold the money into the shape of a fortune cookie. Go up to the person in question and tell them you predict wealth in their future before presenting your gift.
Let's bloom some cash!
Another way to give cash as a gift that might be a little too cheesy for some. Make money into a rose or a bouquet of flowers. You can give the money flowers to your loved one after a walk in the park, a romantic dinner or even after a day of lazing around.
Money in a matchbox!
This is sure to be a huge surprise, and the best part is you do not even have to put too much effort into this. Just hid notes of the cash in random matchboxes and hide them all over the house. And every now and then when they come across the boxes, there will be a little surprise waiting for them inside.

It's raining money!
All you need for this one is an umbrella and a bit of string. Attach one end of the string to the money and the other end to the inside of the umbrella. Hide the money in the umbrella, so whenever it is opened, it will start raising money. Now all you need to do is learn the rain dance.
