I can think of two ways to go:
1)"practical" - pillows or a blanket to make a dorm room cozy, cell phone minutes or computer software that a student can use.
2)"fun" - a gift card for a local eatery to celebrate graduation or tickets to a local event over the summer.
I loved my graduation party! Money isn't necessarily personal, but is a great gift for high school graduates. I got lots of money which was perfect- I was able to use some of it on my summer trip to Europe, then to buy some dorm stuff, and the rest was spending money for groceries, outings with friends in the college town, etc. That being said, if you know the graduate's tastes, something like blankets, pillows, picture frames, stuff like that is also nice.
That‘ll probably be a:
- Scrapbook and memorabilia chest to treasure their highs school passage
- Gift Cards to let them shop for their own taste to suit their trendy taste and fashion faves.
- A Cellphone like JUst5 Easyphone to track them and to keep them updated with friends.
- Cozy bed sheets and pillows to keep them warm
- A portable game and digital music player to keep them well entertained behind the dorms door.

Hi fellow hubbers-I would love to hear some input from parents or anyone else, on what age you are either giving your child a cell phone or what you think should be an appropriate age or circumstances to give a minor a cell phone. I am especially interested in your concerns about the freedom...

According to CBS news, a high school student was not only prevented from partaking in tradition where a valedictorian gives the graduation speech, but it seems now he's been banned from attending graduation entirely. The kid has already received a scholarship to go to Harvard this year, and...
