What to consider when buying a money box
The most important thing to consider when looking for a money box is your own reason for buying one.
If you’re buying a money box for petty cash, look for a metal box with a sturdy lock. If you’re buying a safe for your home, base your decision on the amount of space that you have available, as well as whether you want a safe that locks with a key or one with pin-code access. If you are prone to misplacing keys, a money box that opens with a pin code is probably a better choice.
If you’re buying a money box as a present for a child, maybe look for a piggy bank, DIY piggy bank kit, or a colourful money tin. Avoid buying a breakable piggy bank for a small child – such as those made from ceramic, porcelain and glass – and rather choose a plastic piggy bank or metal money tin.
If you’re buying a money box as a gift for a friend, choose something that suits their personality. To make it extra-special, give them a silver money box engraved with their name or a special message.
