Gap Year Graduation Gift

Gap Year Graduation Gift

We were headed to the graduation party of one of the girls from church this past Saturday.  We love this family and I really wanted to give something more than the traditional cash stuffed into a generic card.   Naturally, I took a stroll around Pinterest and found this amazing idea from Proverbs 31 Mom.

I was all set to head up to the Dollar Tree and fill up a basket when I realized this particular grad was taking a gap year and probably wouldn’t appreciate laundry soap and highlighters that much.    I still loved the concept, so I put together a “Summer Survival” kit instead.

Here’s what I grabbed:

Don’t Forget the Cash:

Of course, we all know kids love cash, so I did throw a few dollars in three designated envelops as well.
