Giving money as a gift idea

Personally I LOVE getting dosh for a present. Whether it’s Birthday’s or Christmas presents, cash is always the best gift.

I have a list of beautiful (translate: expensive) things on a Pinterest board that I’d have had to have been a REALLY good girl to get as a present. Cash is the perfect gift because I can add towards buying something really amazing that I’ve been saving up for or wanted for ages.

BUT when it comes to giving gifts, I’m never sure whether the receiver feels the same way as me at receiving money. Is it thought of as lazy, un-thoughtful? Like you couldn’t be arsed, or left it till last-minute so just stuffed some cash into a card. I couldn’t disagree more, giving money is the most thoughtful gift I can give to you. If I’ve not found anything after my excessive online window shopping that I think you would want. If there’s nothing good enough for me to part with my money, that’s good enough to give to you. If I’ve not got a clue what to get you even though I’ve been waiting for hints over the past months each time we meet up. If I think you’re worth more than a last minute dash to get you something from the toiletries isle on my supermarket big shop (talc, shower gel, body cream). I want my birthday (girl/boy) or Christmas giftee to be able to treat themselves to something that they’ve had their eye on for ages but held off buying because it may have felt too indulgent, excessive or whatever (a Clarins hand lotion, Dior lipstick, a Mulberry purse or to put towards their travelling fund to Bali).

Christmas present gift ideas for people who are hard to buy for

Christmas cash money card

If I give you money it’s because I want to spoil you. And it doesn’t have to be a lot of money, but with any amount of money gifted – it’s the thought that counts – far more than a Boots 3 for 2 that I’ve had in the cupboard since last years January sales.

And the thought is in the detail. If I give money as a present, it’s going to be given in a sweet little glassine minilope, on a beautiful card that’s environmentally responsible and packaged in a rustic little brown envie or box tied with jute. Because I have thought about you, I do care and I want you to treat yourself to something you’ve always wanted.

Don’t buy talc. Be thoughtful – give the gift of money for Christmas or Birthdays with our sweet little hashtag cards.

Well I must apologise for my lack of posts but the holidays have been so charming. I’ve literally rested, DIY’d, eat (lots) & spent my time with the 2 most favourite people in my world: Lilly & Si. I forgot to mention that I have been spoilt rotten this year by Si.

I must have been a very very good girl in 2009 as my Christmas pressie’s were the best ever. From my darling Si, I got a Superdry leather jacket (it’s amazing. I don’t have a picture yet); my favourite author Mitch Albom’s book ‘Tuesdays With Morrie: An Old Man, A Young Man, and Life’s Greatest Lesson’;

this pretty polka dot umbrella from Fred Fabulous; some Cath Kidson fabric fridge magnets; this very cool Evian bottle of water design by Paul Smith at Selfridges which I have blogged about a few months ago here (my Si must have read my blog… aww bless him); & these Agent Provocateur ‘Minnie’ Bra & knicker pretties… Take a peek (I was a very very lucky girl). I hope your Christmas wishes came true & you got all that you desired.

Isn’t this set sooo pretty…?
