And if all else fails, you can give your daughter a gift card. There are also plenty of options when it comes to transferring money, whether it's Venmo, Zelle, PayPal, or just plain, old cash. As they say, giving is better than receiving.

Some children are not always willing to take money from their parents even when they need it," the website explains. "Luckily, if there is a holiday giving them a reason to, they may say, 'Why not?'"

Stay-at-home daughters will definitely be celebrating National Transfer Money to Your Daughter Day

Daughters who will definitely celebrating the holiday can be found on TikTok. These self-proclaimed "stay-at-home-daughters" love showing off the "allowance" they get from their parents — even as grown adults.
