Ice-cream wafer as money gift
My favourite Italian, who owes an ice cream shop just across the road, offered me a great idea for a money gift:
Buy an ice-cream wafer and put a rolled up bill into the peak with a nice saying, perhaps fixed with a paper-clip. Little chocolate marshmallows on the top garnished with an umbrella imitate the scoop.
Enjoy your meal! With additional money, the marshmallows could be draped, for example with some coins.
