Money Boxes - Encourage Children and Young Teens to Save Money

Dec 10th 2014 at 10:43 PM

Money boxes are no trust funds, but they sure are great tools to teach and encourage children to value their money and save what they can for the future. Piggy banks, coin jars, and personalised money boxes are an excellent way to instil the value of managing and saving money to young children. Their general use is to store loose change in a decorative manner, but piggy banks and money boxes are effective tools to teach money principles to children in a way they can understand at their young age. Typical piggy banks are made of porcelain or ceramic, but they also come in a wide range of other types, shapes, and sizes.

Money boxes are typically given as christening or birthday presents. Typically, they come in shapes and designs that appeal most to children, but more elegant designs also exist for older children and even home owners who want a discreet, decorative way to keep their loose change neatly tucked away.

Money boxes are effective pedagogical tools for teaching children and teens the basic principles of thrift and savings because they keep money safe until they are ready to be spent. Most money banks, especially traditionally designed ones only have one slit as an opening, which prevents the keeper from taking money out of the bank prematurely. Old money banks have to be cracked open with a hammer to gain access to the money inside. Newer money bank designs have a second opening, often sealed with a rubber stopper so that the container can be reused once filled.

A personalised money box is an excellent choice for a gift, no matter the age of the recipient, although they are ideal for young children and teens, if you want to help them learn the importance of saving. Online, you will find many companies selling personalised money boxes and similar types of trinkets and tokens, which you can customise to make them exclusive to your recipient. Money boxes are perfect canvases for personal engravings, allowing you to include the name of the recipient or write a short message of encouragement to make the gift extra special. Choose a company that offers different kinds of money boxes you can choose from so you can have plenty of gift options to fit the personality of the recipient.
