Spring is here, and that means Graduation parties and Graduation open houses. Lots of them, if you have a teen. What are some graduation gift ideas that are fun and creative without breaking the bank? Here’s an inexpensive graduation gift idea that I love: I Need Cookies.
First, make a postcard saying “I Need Cookies” (or let your kids do this!). Stamp it and address it to yourself. Give this to the grad, along with a note letting him/her know that she can mail it to you (adding her address) sometime during the school year when she’s tired of dorm food and craving some home-baked cookies.
Hopefully, several months later you’ll receive the postcard in the mail, and then you can get busy baking and packing.
I did this as a gift for our neighbor, who graduated last year. I added it to a fun necklace I found on Etsy, and she really enjoyed it. It’s a unique graduation gift, doesn’t cost a lot, and it’s something the grad can enjoy later, after all the graduation excitement has worn off.
Do you have inexpensive graduation gift ideas? I’d love to hear about them in the comments!
