Would You Wrap Presents in Real Money?

Would You Wrap Presents in Real Money?

090908money-01.jpgWe like unique wrapping paper as much as the next person. Having been a gift wrapper at Belk's we know a thing or two about making the presentation mean as much as the gift but when we heard about the wife of a Washington Lobbyist wrapping thank you gifts in sheets of real dollar bills we had to find out more. Weigh in with your thoughts with a survey after the jump...

Apparently you can buy sheets of real US dollars from the Bureau of Engraving and Printing. One tube of $1 notes (32 big ones) will cost you $55. We're not the best at math but that's around a 40% markup on regular dollar bills for a fancy wrapping job. Sometimes we love to go all out to just to wow someone, but is this reasonable? Does it seem like a waste? Or is it in good taste?
