4 Graduation Present Ideas

Graduation time is upon us. I've already received 3 senior announcements. How fun! It is amazing at graduation time. You never know the path these young people will take. All so different. This is their last horr-ah until they become adults in the new world! It's a pretty exciting time! I love giving graduation gifts, especially clever ones! Check out these 4 different graduation gifts- great for both young men and young women. Money is always appreciated to anyone about to go on their own, because I am sure we all know money goes by very quickly. So the more they have to start out with the better - Hopefully ;) I hope this gives you some inspiration on what to give those you love a great graduation gift!

P.S. To those of you who have given me graduation announcements- will be receiving gifts. Its pretty great that I have 4 ideas and you will never know which one is destined for you until you have received it! Or perhaps you will all be given the same one! Hmmm.... I like to make you wonder! Ha ha. See you all soon! xoxo

Here is a 5 qt. crock pot only $20. I have made a small crock pot "cook book" with just crock pot recipes. GREAT recipes for long days at school or work! 

Here is a Dollar Store umbrella with money hanging from the inside with fishing line. So it looks like it is raining money INSIDE! Who wouldn't want that?!

Give a box of chocolate for graduation! GUESS AGAIN! Take all the chocolate out (and eat it) and fill with quarters and dollar bills! I don't know about you but when I needed to use it, I could get pretty crafty with quarters!

This is an emergency kit for a car, dorm or apartment! It has everything for just in case purposes! Here is a list of the contents!

Compass, Magnifier, Thermometer and Whistle combo
Hand Warmers
Solar Blanket
Small Notebook and pen
Break Away Knife
Extra Batteries
Band Aids
Alcohol Swabs
Medical Tape
Lip Doc
Water Bottle
Trail Mix
Granola Bar
Chicken Soup Packets

  1. What great ideas. I'm always looking for something fun for the graduate--at least a fun way to give money. I do like the crock pot and recipe idea. My son used a crock pot often in college--I'm sure it saved his life!!

  2. These are all really thoughtful ideas! I have a few 5th graders graduating from middle school next week that I'm sure would think your ideas are fun!

  3. How fun! Love these! Thanks for sharing at Sweet & Savory Saturdays #12!

    Dessert Now, Dinner Later!

  4. I love it!! The crockpot and recipes are totally genius.. Any kid going into the dorms should have one. Pinning :) Thanks so much for sharing with us at Weekend Wonders. Hope you're having a great week!
