Gift Money in Style This Holiday with PayPal and Jonathan Adler
It can be tough holiday shopping for your babysitter, a picky relative or that friend or coworker who already has everything. In these situations, a gift of money into the recipient’s PayPal account could be useful so that they can use it to shop and treat themselves or donate money to their favourite cause. A National Canada Public Opinion Study found that 31 per cent of Canadians had gifted money to their friends and family through a peer-to-peer money transfer.
To add a little sparkle and a personal touch to your gift of money, at PayPal, we collaborated with renowned designer Jonathan Adler to create six exclusive digital holiday cards that you can choose from when you send money.
Jonathan Adler’s designs have added glamour and luxury to homes, hotels and restaurants around the world. Now, he is bringing that creativity to digital holiday cards available through PayPal. He has created six exclusive digital holiday cards, with more in the works, that anyone can use to personalize their gifts of money and add a chic touch to their holiday well-wishes. 
The card designs feature the iconic touches, fresh accents and polished style Jonathan is known for. The cards range from festive greetings to thank you cards to tell your loved ones – they rock!
Gift givers can log into their account on, select Send & Request money, click on Send a gift, add their recipient, the gift amount, choose their card design, add a personal message and click send*. To see how easy it is, click HERE for a short demo.
With more people asking for gifts – and giving money – via P2P payments this holiday season, we needed to find a way to make it personal. Our partnership with Jonathan is unlike anything we’ve ever done, and helps take away the stress from – what do I gift my loved ones this holiday season. Jonathan’s unique holiday card designs make sending money easy and fashionable – something that gift cards and traditional holiday cards simply don’t provide.
Our new peer-to-peer gifting experience is now available in 17 countries – including Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom and United States. In Canada and the U.S, you will see designs created by Jonathan Adler, and if you’re located in one of the other countries you will enjoy designs created specifically for your market.
