Creative Cash Gift Gravy Train



The Gravy Train will be pulling into [Insert Last Name(s) here] Station on [insert wedding date here].

This is a fun and creative way to give a cash gift at a wedding, but would also be great for a birthday or Christmas gift.Β  Simply find yourself a toy train at the dollar store, thrift store, Ikea, or big box store.Β  This one is $5.99 (at the time of writing) at Ikea:

Ikea - Lillabo Train

It is virtually the same as the Gravy Boat, posted a few weeks back.

It is optional, but you can take a sharpie to the side of the train and label it β€œGravy,” or use a label maker.Β  Depending on what the train looks like, you could consider taping cash to the outside.Β  That said, cash has its downsides in that it’s not the safest. Β Using an eTransfer can be more secure, as discussed on the cash gifts page.

If it’s not too big, you could consider taking this as a destination wedding gift, as well. Β Also remember that couples may not be comfortable traveling home with a giant wad of cash!

Here is a little horizontal 1/4 fold card you could use, including a Pink Floyd quote:

β€œCome in here, dear boy, have a cigar. You’re gonna go far, fly high, You’re never gonna die, You’re gonna make it if you try; They’re gonna love you…And did we tell you the name of the game, boy, We call it Riding theΒ Gravy Train.”
