Lately, I’ve had lots of requests for ideas for graduation gifts. You can always personalize something for someone, but there are two gifts that always seem to have impact. Words of wisdom and hard earned cash.
For grads of any age, I love these sweet picture books that espouse words of encouragement. We gave the above book to our 10 year old and each of us who attended his “graduation” from lower school wrote a note inside. It’s filled with quotes from Confucius and Plato to Wayne Gretzky and Eleanor Roosevelt. The type of things that you can turn to whenever you need a little boost.
Or, if you will be with the graduate, confetti balloons stuffed with rolls of bills will surely put a smile on their face. They may not always remember who gave them $ but they’ll always remember who gave them confetti filled balloons!

Elizabeth, I love all of your book suggestions. I think everyone needs a few words of encouragement as they move into the next phase of their life.
Have a great weekend,
