A man who gifted cash for Christmas this year has gone viral – all because of the packaging.
Donnachaidha O'Chionnaigh wrote on Twitter: “None of the kids wanted toys for Christmas this year, they just wanted cash. Understandable, but cash as a gift, while practical, always feels impersonal, so I made special packaging. Went over well."
He said the packages were made in photoshop and printed on cardstock before being cut to shape.

Donnachaidha then found pictures of old blister pack figures online and either recreated them or heavily modified them, whichever was simpler.
You can see them all below.
The creations quickly went viral, with Twitter users encouraging him to create an Etsy store and sell his designs.
@TwoClawsMedia That is the best way to give money I've ever seen!— Cleodora Silvestri (@Cleodora Silvestri) 1577334992.0
@TwoClawsMedia @DerickArmijo I would leave it in its packaging, so it keeps its value.— James Hutchinson (@James Hutchinson) 1577329067.0
@Acheroth @TwoClawsMedia @Kurrikage I would EASILY pay twenty bucks for one of these. They’d still come with a $50 inside, right?— andykeck (@andykeck) 1577338783.0

@TwoClawsMedia This could be a business. Or at the very least a product.— Matthew Kobach (@Matthew Kobach) 1577387870.0
Who knew there could be a market for selling money in a fancier way, and charging more for it?
Sounds like a solid business plan to us!
