Graduation Gift Idea


It can be tough to find a personalized gift for a graduate, especially when you know that all he or she really wants is cold hard cash. When I graduated high school, one of my longtime friends gave me a journal. In it she had written a beautiful message. Of all the graduation gifts I’ve received since, for high school and college, I still have that journal and I still periodically go back through it to read what my friend wrote. Journals are easy to embellish inside and out, and make great gifts for grads. You can buy a handmade journal, like my friend did, or you can craft your own. If you choose to purchase, take a look at Subu Inc., which sells journals and recycled notepads. (I also have a soft spot for this site because the crafter is stationed in my hometown of Pittsburgh). Check out FaveCrafts for great ideas on making your own journal (including the ones below)

    I have another recommendation to add! I just bought this book “Young Guns” for my son who just graduated from college. I got it on but you can probably get it at any major bookstore. My son is SO LAZY but after he read this he realized what it takes to become successful. Now, he’s taking initiative, being proactive, and working his way up! I recommend this book :)
