High school graduation gift alternative to cash - fill a shower caddy with college necessities like school supplies, white board, flip flops, soap, band-aids, etc. (thank my husband for this brilliant idea!)
I love this idea: After her high school graduation, a girl's dad handed her "Oh the Places You'll Go," by Dr. Seuss. She smiled when she saw a note from her kindergarten teacher, but was confused. He explained, "Every year for the past 13 years, since the day you started kindergarten, I've gotten every teacher, coach, and principal to write a little something about you inside this book.
