    Unique Piggy Banks for Adults

    1. Harry Potter Coin Bank Book

    We're kicking this off with a fun one - this is one of the best piggy banks for adults on Amazon that I saw (and not just because I'm a Harry Potter fan...). This metal book bank is perfect for hiding in a bookshelf and saving your coins to purchase all the chocolate frogs you want. If you can't make it to Gringott's, this is an excellent runner-up option.

    4. Cat Stealing Money Bank

    Some might say this one's for kids, but I beg to differ. Who can resist this adorable kitten that not only steals your money but says "hello" and "thank you" while doing it? The interactive aspect of this electronic piggy bank makes it a fun way to look forward to giving up your dollar coins. This cute piggy bank comes in various kitten colors and fruits on the box - including a panda version in a bamboo box. While it's small, it can hold a lot of coins - up to 30 - 40 US coins.

    5. Large Ceramic Piggy Bank

    If you're looking for a jumbo piggy bank for adults, this traditional ceramic one will fit the bill (get it?). While it's a throwback to the old-school versions of piggy banks, this updated large piggy bank has a modern, clean look with a wooden snout.

    This not so little pig comes in various colors, including turquoise, white, black, or yellow, and can be matte or glossy. Insert the money through the coin slot on the top, and open it up by removing the wooden snout. Plus, you can add a personalized message on the backside of the snout.

    Can Adults use Piggy Banks?

    Absolutely! An adult piggy bank can be a great way to motivate yourself (or someone else) to save up for that big trip, car downpayment, or new tattoo you've been dreaming of. Why use a boring old bank account to save your cash when using cool piggy banks that can make you feel like a kid again?

    Do People Still Use Piggy Banks?

    Yes! The number of piggy banks available on Etsy, Amazon, and a million other online stores is impressive - but that also means there are tons of great fun options to choose from. Not everyone uses credit or debit cards, and for those who use cash (or cash envelopes), this can be a great way to collect all those spare quarters.

    When Would You Gift Piggy Banks?

    Piggy banks can be a fun and unique way to help a young adult (or regular adult) save up for their financial goals. Some ideas can include:

    • A housewarming gift for a young couple, so they can save up for repairs or decor
    • A parent-to-be, so they can start a savings fund for their baby
    • A recent high school graduate who wants to start a college fund (or save for rainy days)
    • A jet-setter who's planning their next worldwide excursion
    • A family saving up for a vacation or get rid of their mortgage
    • A friend who loves interior design and needs a modern piggy bank to store their loose change
    • A family member saving up for Black Friday or Christmas gifts
