While it is always fun to receive candy in an Easter basket, what really gets tweens and teens excited is a little hidden cash inside as well! So here are 10 awesome Easter cash gift ideas!
Easter cash gift ideas: Money rolled up into a Pez dispenser!
You can pick up some Easter-themed Pez dispensers on Amazon, or at places like CVS and Target. The only tricky part of this gift, is getting the cash placed inside of the dispenser!
The way I did it was to fold the bill in half, and then tightly roll it from one end to the next. Then carefully hold down the spring-loaded bottom of the dispenser, and place the top part of the bill in, and then wedge in the bottom part of the rolled bill.
Bonus points if you can get the dollar value to appear in the opening of the dispenser!
Other cute ways to give cash in an Easter basket:
I love the idea of popping bills into old plastic Easter eggs and placing them in a colorful tin! (Courtesy of What Mommy Does)
And this is a cute idea to take just one plastic egg, fill it with cash, and then settle it into a “nest” of shredded brown paper before placing it in a treat bag for gift giving! (Idea from Sew Many Ways)
Or you make the basket be the cash gift!

Easter cash hidden inside of a mason jar!
My Home Based Life came up with a great idea on how to hide cash inside of a mason jar, and have it not be touching the candy… insert a toilet paper tube before filling the jar! The only thing I would change is that I would use the Easter pastel M&Ms !
