Are you searching for that one truly unique gift idea for that certain someone, whom you really want to impress this Christmas morning? Maybe you need a unique Christmas gift idea for the person who has everything. Perhaps you need a unique Christmas gift idea for that one individual who is simply hard to pick for. Well I have a unique Christmas gift idea for you. A money tree.
When I was doing research for this article, I learned that there are two types of money trees. The first one is a bamboo plant, and this is not the one that I am speaking of. Although this type of plant is pretty, it is not the unique Christmas gift idea, that I had in mind.
A perfect example of the unique Christmas gift idea, that I am speaking of can be viewed at this website.
Who would not get excited over a unique Christmas gift idea such as this? I mean, every one loves to receive money as a gift, and this is much more personal, than a few bills stuffed in an envelope. This is the perfect unique Christmas gift idea for young and old alike. The money tree pictured on the website has 80 one dollar bill “leaves”. You could use more or less, depending on the amount of money you wish to spend. You may order this unique Christmas gift idea directly from the website, or you might choose to make your own.
Use your imagination. One idea that came to mind that I may use this Christmas, is to start with a small fiber optic Christmas tree, or you could use a regular small Christmas tree, or even a plant of some kind, the choice is totally up to you of what to use as the “tree part” of this unique Christmas gift idea..
The next step is to make your $1.00, $5.00, $10.00, $20.00 or even $50.00 bills into small bows that are then attached to the tree for ornaments. To do this fold your bill in half, placing the two narrow ends together and creasing to keep it in place. Then you fold the bill accordion style along the side that is widest, crimp in the middle and place a red, green, silver or gold pipe cleaner around the center to hold in place and to use for the fastener to hold the “bill bow” on the tree. Fluff out the ends and voilà, you have a bow.
You may place as many of these bows as you would like on the tree and use different currency denominations. You might also like to use other small gifts as decorations along with the “bill bows”, such as earrings or maybe a necklace wrapped around the tree for garland. For a boy, you could use different fishing lures as ornaments (that is if he likes to fish).
This unique Christmas gift idea is only limited to your imagination. Let your mind flow and you can come up with some really unique Christmas ideas such as this money tree, and your thoughtful Christmas gift will be remembered for many years to come, as the most unique Christmas gift that some special someone received from you, this Christmas morning!
