How To Give Money As A Gift--Because You Know That's What Everyone Really Wants

December 16, 2014 by Jeanine Edwards
shefinds | Style

Let’s be honest: it’s getting down to the wire for that whole gift giving situation. Now yes, there’s still plenty of time to pull off an amazing present if you get creative, but in the event you are not here’s a no-fail alternative: cash!

Think about it: is there anyone out there that wouldn’t want some extra money, especially after the toll the holiday season has likely taken on their bank account? I’ll be the first to say it; keep the Michael Kors watch, keep the rag & bone boots, hell you can even keep the monogrammed Burberry poncho–I’ll gladly take the moolah. And luckily, there are a bunch of sites that not only make giving money easy, but safe and secure, too. Check them out below:

Paypal: Just make sure the recipient has a Paypal account and transferring money from your synced bank account is a breeze.

Google Wallet: We love Google Wallet because you can pretty much send money to anyone with a gmail account.

Venmo: Venmo is great because you can connect it to your Facebook account and send money to anyone on your friends list.

Dwolla: There is a twenty five cents fee when using Dwolla, but we like the convenience of only needing the recipient’s email address or cell phone number.

PopMoney: Like Dwolla, you only need an email address or mobile number to get your cash gift to its intended recipient when using PopMoney.

Snapchat: Oh yes, you really can use Snapchat to send money. When you add a credit or debit card to the text-chat feature, that little green pay button lets you send money to the peeps in your contact list.

Square Cash: First and foremost, we like Square because it’s free. They also have an awesome app that makes giving money from your phone super easy.

Visa/American Gift Cards: Hesitant about sending money around on the Internets? A Visa or American Express gift card is a great alternative because they work anywhere credit/debit cards are accepted.

Gold Bars: Why settle for green when you can give gold?

Gift Card Granny: If you know your gift recipient is just going to spend all the cash you give at one store, head over to Gift Card Granny. There you can buy gift cards for less than their actual value.

Western Union: WU does charge a fee for cash transfers, but they do have the option of allowing recipients to retrieve money from a physical location should that be their preference.

Money Gram: Much like Western Union, Money Gram lets you send money to an individual’s bank account or to their nearest Money Gram location.
