I always seem to find myself rushing last-minute to figure out an easy birthday gift idea when my child is invited to a birthday party. One thing leads to another, and I always end up grabbing way more than I actually needed (I’m looking at you, Target). Or we resort to a less-than-ideal gift and I swear to be more prepared the next time around.
But now I’ve discovered the PERFECT, easy birthday gift idea to have on-hand for birthday parties: a tissue box money roll! A friend told me about this idea a few months ago and I instantly fell in love with it. I knew I had to create my own!
You essentially roll up dollar bills (I typically use about 10) and paper arrows + notes into a tissue box. Half the fun of this money gift, is pulling it all out of the tissue box. It seems to just keep going and going!
Assembling this gift is super simple and I like to put together a couple at a time, so we can grab them and go when there’s a birthday party to attend.

I did the graduation money roll for my son who is 25 and he loved it. It was the hit of all the gifts (which were just money in a card…) Thank you for this and many other wonderful ideas I’ve gotten from you. You are so adorable and I’m often inspired by you. Good luck with your move!
I’m so happy to hear that! Glad it was a hit at the graduation party 🙂
Printable won’t download for me!
how do i print for the birthday money roll box
Hello, how can I get the free printable? I put in my name and email address but it wasnt’ emailed to me.
So sorry you were having problems getting the free printable. When you enter your name and email address, there should be a link that comes up right under the submit box where you can download the printable right from that link. It also sends an email, but that has the chance of going to a junk mail folder.
I never got email or link either after signing up. Checked spam too. Please post.
I did this last year and it was the best gift
So glad you tried it and liked it!
