He's saving for new computer upgrades so only wants cash. There will be three contributing so maybe he'll get £200- £300 as a main present.
Is there a way of making this look exciting on Christmas morning?

Stick in in a Christmas themed money wallet seal it, put it inside a large gift box (the kind with a lid you can get from greetings card shops). Within the box stick load of the shredded tissue/tinsel paper (also from greeting card a load of cheap novelty things in there or just chocolates/choc coins etc. Wrap up whole thing with wrapping paper.

Roll up a note , feed it into a balloon , fill with glitter and inflate.

"Russian Doll" style boxes - buy some cheapie gift boxes in varying sizes and wrap each one in ribbon as you go,

Inside a book if you're okay with cutting out the centre to make a secret compartment . Look in the reduced books bit for something really bad and 50p (Peter Andres autobiography fwink

We always give DS a £50 note for his birthday and Christmas (with other things as well) I put it in a gift tin last year.

Put it between two or three other presents. Some in the pages of a book, stuck to the side of a games console game, or a novelty chocolate santa etc

ooh great ideas, thank you! The ballon one (sans glitter) might be good - can put in a big box and have fun bursting them.
I quite like the idea of putting notes between the After Eights too..

Thanks everyone
