For the past few years instead of buying so many presents, my family has opted to do a white elephant extravaganza. It’s such a fun way to give gifts with a large group. We usually have at least 10 people playing and we set the gift limit at $40. This year, I can’t think of anything amazing, so I’m likely just going to give cash. Here are 3 creative ways to give cash as a gift using a Pez dispenser, toilet paper, and play-doh! Oh and if you like these, don’t miss 23 more clever ways to give cash!
For each of the 3 gifts, I made simple gift tags out of card stock, markers, and a hole punch. My printer is often out of ink or broken, so I’m over free printables right now, ha! To get the little tags on the gift bags, I just un did the knot from the inside the gift bag, and slipped on my handmade tag. Easy, peasy.

1. “You’re PEZ-ent is extra special this year!”
Roll up some cash and stick it in an empty Pez dispenser. There are so many fun Pez dispensers out there, I went with Frozen themed, but the Pez dispensers are endless! Here are a few ones:
2. Toilet paper cash gift
I first saw this “In case you get crap for Chrsitmas!” as embroidered toilet paper from this etsy store, ha! I thought it would make the perfect white elephant gift with a few twenties in the middle. This was the winner for my families White Elephant gift exchange because we’re classy bunch, ha!
3. “Cheers to a little extra dough!”
We have a few Play-Doh’s laying around our house, and it dawned on me that I could hide some cold, hard dough in a little container!
