There are many things kids need (or want) when they’re finishing up high school and getting ready to head out into the world. That opens up lots of possibilities for great graduation gifts. But for those hard to shop for or saving up for something big, like a first car, cash is king. Just because you’re giving cash doesn’t mean it has to be impersonal or boring though.
What’s better than a box of chocolates? A chocolate box full of cash, like this one from Life as Mom. I’d probably end up spending it on chocolate anyway. And coffee.
Pizza and teens go together like…well, like pizza and teens. Give your college-bound student the gift of survival with this Money Pizza from kleone2u on Hubpages.
If you’re mailing a graduation gift, consider these money-filled balloons from She’s Crafty. Tell them you’ll be expecting to see a Vine of the popping.
If you give this Money Lei from Lil’ Luna to a kid at graduation, you better make sure he’s fast.
This card holder serving as gift packaging, as shown on Start Up GF, does dual duty. After the money is spent they can use it to hold the business cards related to all those job leads they’ll be accumulating.
This Cold Hard Cash idea from Lovezilla would require a little planning ahead. Make sure you don’t store it near the Hot Pockets, so the graduate doesn’t accidentally find it.
Spruce up his graduation day wardrobe with this Money Tie from Honey I’m Home (formerly known as Faith, Trust & Pixie Dust – just to explain the watermark).
So many “Bread” and “Dough” jokes to be made here, I can’t even pick one. Just check out this cash gift idea from Style Baggage.
I think this umbrella raining cash from The Seasonal Home would be such a fun gift. Imagine handing this over closed and the recipient opening it to find all that money!
Next Thursday I’ll be in the stands, probably holding a Kleenex or two, watching my son receive his high school diploma!
