Graduation Gift Ideas

Posted in Uncategorized at 11:30 pm by bitsypieces

This graduation gift post at Stop the Ride! started me thinking. My niece is graduating from high school this Saturday, and we need to give her a gift. Here are the details:

  • At this point, she’s unsure if she’ll be moving far away to a 4-year school, or if she’ll be living at home with mom and attending the local community college.
  • Last year when her older sister graduated, we gave the sister a nice, used television for her dorm room. (So we need something in the equivalent price range… about $50.)
  • When I asked my MIL what Graduating Niece would most like to receive, the response was “money.”

Now… I’d prefer to NOT give cash. Mostly because I didn’t give money to the first niece. (My own mother was a stickler for ‘even’ gifts between siblings… I guess some of that rubbed off on me.)

Any thoughts? If she was going off to college, we’d probably get her a microwave or some other useful appliance. But if she stays home… I have no idea.

*NOTE: And yes, I know that waiting until 2 days before graduation is a little late to be thinking about the gift. But hey. I’m pregnant. Cut me a break.

  1. Wow awesome post, the truth to the matter is in marketing! You should be able to

    market to Cash Gifting, gifting generating wealth to millionaires websites or

    programs. Viral cashflow is what is the best home program or work at home programs do.

    Marketing strategies are the best and success for my revolutionary reverse 1/2, half

    up, .5up system. Make sure that you have a great support team like gifting mentor

    sites, Gifting Mentors is the the cutting edge to best support and training blogs –

    The digital picture frame is becoming more and more popular and would be the perfect graduation gift for the new grad to show off his or her college photos.

    Not only are there frames that play photos, music and videos, but now there are a number of WiFi frames that allow you to wirelessly connect your photo collections from online photo sharing sites and galleries, like Photobucket, Picasa, Facebook, Flickr and more, to your digital frame.

    Now, if you know anything about digital picture frames, you know there are a lot of them on the market today. Therefore, you might be wondering which one to purchase.

    After extensive product testing of the leading brands’ products, Which Frame? has named Kodak the best brand for digital frames with respect to quality and ease-of-use.
