My wonderfully, creative daughter came up with this idea one year "Money for a Rainy Day". Choose 10-20 bills (use whatever denomination you want), and tape a string on each (use various string lengths). Tie the strings individually to the ribs of an open umbrella. Close the umbrella, making sure the bills are tucked inside. Let the recipient know this is a "rainy day gift." When opened, the bills flutter down - very impressive!

What a cute idea. You could also do it with homemade coupons for the money challenged ;) Or it would be cute as a Bridal shower gift and you could collect favorite recipes ahead of time from the guests and and attach them the same way. For a baby shower you could do tips from the guests about being a new Mom and things that come up with babies.
I love it.
