Thrifty Graduation Gifts

It's graduation season, and that means grad parties are just about every weekend! I am sad to say, I was not prepared for graduation parties like I should have been but next year I will do better. Although we don't expect our peers to give us graduation gifts, it's always a nice touch if they do. To help you out, I have some great ideas for graduation gifts in case your in a pinch. 

1. Gift basket with supplies and snacks!

2. A small jar of money! With the money rolled up like this it looks like a lot but might be only $10

4. A dollar store haul! I could probably spend $30 at the dollar store and make 5 useful graduation gifts from that $30 haul! You can make it work if you have the desire.

A few other simple ideas for your graduating friends: 

  • A framed photo of you and your friend along with a encouraging note.
  • Or maybe your favorite movie you would watch together and their favorite snack.

Guys, don't worry you can get your friends gifts too!

  • FOOD! $5 subway gift cards never fail.
  • Or a, "Next pizza is on me!" coupon.

Whatever you do for your graduating friends remember don't break your budget. You can make an impact- and bring a smile to your friend's face and give them a useful gift without spending a lot of money! 

Keeping it Fresh, Young & Free,
