You may have seen this idea before labeled “a box of sunshine”. In order to celebrate our graduate we are renaming it “your future is looking bright” and filling the box or bag with all things yellow. Gum, candy, lotion, chap stick, whatever you come across that is yellow throw it in. It’s a great gift to celebrate your graduate with.

Graduation Gift Bottle Set

First things first. This gift idea comes with free printables from Busy Mom’s Helper so that’s already a win. What a fun way to celebrate your graduate with bottles filled with fun treats and labels with fun sayings. If you want it to be more personalized then skip the labels and make your own notes or just leave the bottles filled with soda.

Really. A hammer. I remember being sent off to college with a small (pink) tool set. The hammer from that tool set was used in my first home with my husband to hang pictures on the wall. Hammers are very useful things to have around and at Amazon you can purchase this awesome hammer with an inspirational graduation saying. So what are you waiting for, go order a hammer and let’s celebrate with great graduation gifts that can be used for years to come.
