Homemade Graduation Gift Ideas

Graduation is an exciting time for anyone, whether it's a high school graduation or a college graduation. If you'd like to give someone a graduation gift, but don't have a lot of money, you may consider making a homemade graduation gift.

Things You'll Need:

  • Pictures
  • Scrapbook
  • CD/music
  • Frame
  • Picture
  • basket
  • Resource-
  1. A Scrapbook
    Make a scrapbook. A scrapbook is a great homemade gift for the graduate. Include pictures of the graduate from childhood through graduation. Write down personal thoughts or feelings next to the pictures. Write a personalized message for the graduate in the front of the scrapbook or in the back of the scrapbook.You can edit your photos with Picture Collage Maker
  2. Homemade Goodies
    Bake homemade goodies. Almost everyone loves homemade baked goodies. Bake up a loaf of bread, or arrange a basket full of cookies or muffins. You may want to store the baked goodies in a resealable plastic bag or in a cute container to keep them fresh. You may also put the baked goodies in a gift basket with tissue paper or paper grass.
  3. Burn a DVD
  4. I sure you keep some photos ,or you may just have a big graduation party.What's the better way to share the early days of your school experience and the exciting graduation moments? It's the graduation video. Graduation slideshow video could be memorable and is a compilation of the old videos, new graduation photos recording every detail on graduation day, and graduation songs. Burn graduation slideshow DVD and easily share through any DVD player with TV connected. Most important is that you could preserve graduation memories for a long time. It's also a good idea to send a graduation video DVD as graduation gift.
  5. Gift basket
    Create a gift basket. Fill a basket with little things, such as CDs, DVDs, candy, gift cards or other goodies you know your graduate will like. Before you add the goodies to the basket, be sure to fill the bottom with tissue paper or paper grass. You may even want to wrap each of the individual gifts.
  6. Picture Frame
    Frame a picture. Find a nice picture frame and include a recent picture of the graduate by him or herself. You may also consider choosing a picture of the graduate with his or her family. If you choose a metal frame, you can take it to a jeweler to have it engraved and personalized.
  7. Make a slideshow&sharing online
  8. If you need to watch photo album online with friends, just make a graduation photo slideshow so that you could share the show on your blog, ,facebook,Myspace and website. According to Price of Their Toys, commemorative photo items such as framed pictures or a DVD slideshow of your classmates is a touching and extremely budget-friendly gift. A similar idea is a CD with popular songs from throughout your school years.
Hope those ideas are helpful!
