origami dollars would be cool too, another way to give money, without spending any extra on bags n boxes n junk, thanks nerdchic!!

not sure when my floss will be empty, guess ill start flossin 4 or 5 times a day, to make sure i can put sum money n there for christmas, cool idea wallaby!

If you're really patient and have a hard-cover book you wouldn't mind going without, you can do what my dad did to me once.  When I opened my present, I couldn't figure out why he had given me one of those Readers Digest novel collection books.  After I faked enthusiasm (kind of), I opened it, I discovered that he had cut the same-sized square out of about half of the pages in the middle and put a stack of dollar bills (wrapped in plastic) in there.  He also used a drill press to cut out spaces for quarters (laundry money!).  Just be sure to tie a ribbon or something around the book (he used tape) too keep the money from sliding out.

Kudos to you for putting effort into giving money; the personalization makes it special.

inside a cracker jack box

get a bunch of fake money and mix in the real money

get it all in pennies and put it in a huge jar so they wont know how much they haveput it in a ball and super

cover it with plastic wrap. that stuff can be a pain to get off

oooh, i got another one!

take a bar of soap, the kind that's packaged in a box.  carefully open up the end, stick your $$ inside, then glue the end together again.

my uncle gave his son a big package of soap once (without the money), and it was hilarious!

This isn't too far from the origami suggestion, but takes it a tad bit further.  There is an orgami project that allows you to make a shirt from a bill (see the web lik that I have listed blelow).  I fold the bill & then put the "shirt" on plain paper, drawing funny stick-figure bodies & either draw a face or use a cut-out photo of the recipient.  Then I put this in a picture frame & wrap.

i haven't tried this, but with the ideas here....

is there any kind of powered thing (laundry soap, etc.) that you could hide the gift in?

This comes from a former co - worker when he was asked if he wanted to buy a ticket for a "Basket of Cheer" he said that he can afford his own laundry detergent, thank you! (basket of cheer - asst. booze and accessories).
