Gift Ideas For Graduation
The Graduation Gift That All Graduates Will Love!
Are you looking for the perfect Graduation Gift? I hope I can help you.Shopping for Graduation Gifts can be a dreaded chore or a lot of creative fun! You want to give the graduate something special and of course, something that they want.I remember when I was graduating from high school and college, I wanted people to give me money for my gift. I wanted to pick out the things that I needed and wanted. Our children were the same way. They wanted money more than any other gift so they could do what they wanted with it.I always disliked giving money as a Graduation Gift because it didn't show much thought or creativity and definitely did not seem personal. Well, I finally figured out a way to give both money and a personal gift and I wanted to share my idea with you. You see, I like to give the graduate what they want but I also like to be creative and make the gift more personal.Hope you like my ideas. I have also added other gifts such as the Graduation Cap Bead Charm and other Graduation Jewelry and Graduation Books.Photo by OhMe of a Pendleton High School Senior's cap taken at the 2012 PHS Baccalaureate Service in Pendleton SC sponsored by Pendleton United Methodist Church in Pendleton, SC.
I am so thankful that the Baccalaureate Services for our PHS graduates continue.

Personalize Your Graduation Gift Of Money
Package your Gift in a Gift! Be creative!
That's right! You can make that gift of a check or cash seem personal by selecting a special bank for the graduate. You can even get a small brass plaque from your jewelry store and have it engraved with the graduates name, date of graduation and the school he or she is graduating from. It might even be possible to find a bank that you can hand paint their name and information.Also, a new wallet can be filled with cash or a check and I don't know many people who could not use a new wallet. Do you?This way the graduate will have the needed money to purchase what he or she wants and will also have a treasured gift to keep and remember you by. Now, isn't that a great suggestion?Photo Photo taken at the 2012 Pendleton High School Baccalaureate Service in Pendleton SC. It was a beautiful service and I understand that the 2013 was, too. It was sponsored by the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.
