PayPal makes Holiday Gifting Easy!

Thank you PayPal for sponsoring this post. Visit PayPal to give the gift people really want this season: money!

One of my best friends moved away last year to attend law school. Although she’s only two hours away, the distance always plays a role in us getting together. Due to the high demands of school, she rarely has any free time.

Whenever she comes home for the holidays or special occasions, we don't hang out too much because the few days she is home, she spends it with her family- which is understandable.

This year, instead of sending her a gift, I wanted to do something special and different for her.

I'm sending her money through PayPal’s P2P service. I’m so proud of her and what she is trying to accomplish that a little bit of money to treat herself to a nice relaxing day, is exactly what she needs and know she'll appreciate.

You can send a PayPal P2P digital greeting by simply logging into your account on, select Send Money, enter the recipient’s contact information, designate the amount, click the gift box, select your favorite greeting, personalize with a message, and send. The funds go right into their PayPal account; if they don’t have an account, they can quickly open one for free


I use PayPal weekly and trust them. They recently partnered with Facebook to create a funding source for peer-to-peer (P2P) payments, right in Messenger. People will have the option to send and request money using their PayPal account!

It’s easy to get started. When composing a message in Messenger with one person, or even a group, people can tap on the blue plus icon, and then select the green Payments button to quickly send or request money. People can then choose PayPal as their funding source when making a P2P payment with their Messenger contacts.
