Graduation Gift Ideas

Hello!  Can you believe that it’s May already?  This year has just been flying by!  Before you know it, it’s going to be Christmas.  Christmas!

Well since it’s May, it’s getting closer to graduation season.  That’s right, people are going to be graduating left and right.  My sister is one of those people.  She’s going to be graduating with a bachelor’s degree and I am so proud  of her.  But in the search for the prefect graduation gift, I found a lot of great ideas.  So I decided to share what I found so you can find the perfect gift for your graduate.  Enjoy!

Graduation Gifts to Make and Give

Good morning! How was your weekend? I was finally home for a weekend and it was sooo nice! Our weather is pretty crazy though. We had 100 degrees on Thursday and then yesterday, it was 65 degrees and rainy! This is the most spring-like weather we have had in years! I am ready for warmer weather, but not too hot.

Of course, this time of year, there are graduations happening. My niece will be graduating high school this month. She is the youngest of the 6 grandchildren in our family. This is certainly reason to celebrate! While I will be giving her cash, because what high schooler doesn’t want money!, I wanted to find a fun way to give it. Here are some of the ideas I found. Click on the picture to be taken to the post.

  1. A box that looks like a graduation cap. I actually made similar ones when the older nieces and nephew graduated.

2. I love these little origami caps. So cute!

3. How about a rose? Maybe a dozen?

4. Every teenager also like pizza. I think this is such a cute idea!

Do you have a special graduate in your life? Here are some super fun and original graduation gift ideas for kindergarten through college!

5. This is so adorable? It would be cute to paint little graduation caps on the umbrella.

Graduation is an exciting time. Show your support and excitement with a fun handmade graduation gift that everyone will want. Give the gift of cash!

6. How about a jar filled with little money diplomas? A lot of us have extra jars around the house. This is a great way to use them!

7. I love this! I have done a candy gram for other events, but not graduation.

you "rock"! after completing "mounds" of homework and "piecing" together all of your knowledge, you've finally hit "payday": graduation! as you head off to college, don't listen to any "snickers": you're no "dum dum"! you are one "hot tamale" on your "way" to making "100 grand"! congratulations on your graduation "smartie"!:

8.  A 2 liter full of cash and candy? Yes, please!

9.  This little guy is so cute! Another use for those jars. Fill it with cash, gift cards, or candy.

10. I adore these! I found these on Etsy. They would be so cute to give with the city of the college the student is going to.

What do you think? Would you give any of these to friends and family? I will be getting started on a couple of these. Hope you all have a great week!

It’s Been Pretty Quiet Around Here…

It’s Monday again. Back to school and schedules again. Really not wanting to go back, but there are just 6 weeks left and I know we will busy with different activities and time will go by quickly.

We haven’t been around much this past week either. Without a schedule and with spring break, everything got thrown off. We did get to take my little nieces to the zoo and it was so much fun to see it through little one’s eyes again. We enjoyed a beautiful day there and saw a baby rhino and a baby lion. Even a rhino is cute when it’s a baby! My mom and I held our annual yard sale and did pretty well. I’m just glad to get rid of all that stuff and make a little bit of money too! This next weekend, I am going with Haley to visit another college. We will see how it goes! Here are a few pictures from the zoo:
