Hide Money for Teens Inside Glove Fingers

Hide Money for Teens Inside Glove FingersMy 3 grandchildren are all teenagers now and it is very difficult to know what to buy them for Christmas. Money is always welcome but I didn't want to just give them an envelope with cash. What I did this year was buy them each a pair of nice gloves; that's the practical side of me coming through.


Inside each finger and thumb, I inserted a rolled up bill and stuffed the rest of the finger with hard wrapped candies. You can use whatever denomination of bills that suits your budget.

Probably the kids are going to give me a lame "thanks Grandma" when they see that they only got a pair of gloves and I'm rather hoping that this happens. My plan is to ask them to try their gloves on for size. They'll have to pull out the candies first of course and then comes the surprise when each finger is emptied out.

This was my own idea and I'm as excited as a kid myself as I wait for Christmas Day.

Excellent thinking. An even better way for them to check everything.

Hahaha My grandpa always gave us a bag of candy with a pot holder inside. I don't know why the pot holder, but I used them! We'd also just be handed money in a bank gift envelope. Well one year he decided to put a walnut in each treat bag. Okay. No big deal and pretty Normal for Christmas, right? Until we find out that he had opened all of the shells, removed the nuts, and replaced them with a $20 bill.


Then he reattached the shells, but in a way where they'd not break when we opened them again. I have no clue where that money was spent, but I still have my walnut shell. And I always will. You are giving those kids some great memories!!!
