So I have about 6 or 7 friends who are graduating this year.  We aren't THAT close, but I do consider them my friends and I would like to get them something to remember me buy and also to help them in college.  A few suggestions I've had are buying them Dr. Seuss' Oh, the Places You'll Go, making simple jewelry, or buying flowers.  Problem is, the last chance I will have to see them is next Friday at "Class Day" where we celebrate their graduation, so I'm short on time.  I'm also short on cash.  Any suggestions?

What about signature books? I'm thinking of making some Coptic style books for friends when we all graduate at the end of the year with either a group or individual photo on the front. I haven't made any yet, but even a cheap note book with a decorated cover and a nice inscription on the inside shouldn't take too long and hopefully isn't too expensive.

If they are going away for college I suggest something small that they will be able to bring. I don't think I have a single graduation present up at college--I used a lot of the gift certificates for crap I probably never needed, but thats it. A tiny memory book with colorful papers and memories you have of them might be nice.You might be able to find some cheap, reusable water bottles to decorate. Im working on making a cork board out of corks for a friend (I got the idea on another post) and some marble magnet-style push pins to go with it.

good luck!!

How about CD mixes.  Thy are cheap, quick, and music can be a really nice nostalgic gift.

CD mixes with their favorite kind of music would be a good inexpensive idea. Or making easy jewelry.....you can buy rolls of hemp for like 3 bucks and a big pack of some cheap colored pony beads and make bracelets and necklaces for them with their favorite colors.

I'm a crafty kid. I just can't help myself.
