My cousin is graduating next month and I was wondering what to give her. I've already made a picture frame in her favorite colors and I'm probably going to make another one, but what are some other ideas? I can't do a scrapbook because I am not good at that. Any suggestions are welcome.  Grin

I suggest decoupage or paint on a funky old suitcase. She may be moving around a lot (a sure did) and can use it to store photos, craft stuff, etc.

A friend of mine gave me a crocheted afghan when I graduated and I love it and still treasure it! Something for the home (blanket, pillow, tea towel) is always welcome because usually when people graduate they're moving to a new place and will want something familiar and comforting with them.

If your cousin is going off to college, you might want to consider crafting her some organizational stuff-- a cute pen/pencil holder decoupaged or painted, maybe a memory board, or even a dry-erase/cork board that you decorate, etc.  Even a small potted plant with a decorated pot-- all things that are great for a dorm- room.

My future sis in law is graduating from college in a few weeks. I think I am going to make her a funky monthly organizer, something to help her in the "real world."

for my highschool graduation my grandma got me a teddy bear and sewed a cap and gown for it in my school colors. 

Or you could get a photo album and decorate the cover, maybe make it a graduation photo album for her to puts all her grad pics in.

My brother is graduating from HS next month and I am at a loss as to what to get him. He also turns 18 the next day, so I need double the presents! LOL

I would also love some ideas for a graduation gift for my girlfriend who is graduating law school.

We live together and share money and we're not moving anywhere.   Huh

tips: we want money! or something useful. (I'm graduating from high school this year too.) I would want either something fun and useful, something to remind me of home, or money.
