Coming up with gifts is always a difficult task. I have a really hard time coming up with ideas for graduation gifts. Whether it’s high school or college, kids those ages are tough to shop for. They probably need practical items for life but those aren’t fun to give as gifts. The best gift you can give them is money to spend the way they want. Now you are not going to just hand them a wad of cash. You have to give money in a cute fun way. Here are 10 creative graduation money gifts. They are all fun and easy to put together. Whether it is for your own kids, family or friends they will all love these creative money gifts.

Continuing with my housewarming fun! First I made little house gift boxes to hand out at housewarming parties or to give to someone who has just moved into a new home. Today I have these cute little gift tags that look like Welcome mats. Ones that say welcome to your new home and to keep you warm in your new home. Kids and adults both need new things for their home. We are in the process of moving across the country and I want to get a little gift for my daughter to get her excited about the move. Usually adults get presents when they get a new home. I think it is a cute idea to get parent’s and kids matching gifts when they move.
Right now I am in the process of moving and packing is one of my least favorite things. Instead on focusing on the pile of boxes that surround me in true procrastinator style I am thinking of all the fun we will have with our housewarming party! I also can never think of housewarming gifts to give. These free printable housewarming gift boxes are perfect for little gifts such as gift cards. They look like tiny little houses too! That’s one of the best gifts to give to new home owners gift cards to somewhere for them to start decorating their home. These little boxes are also perfect for a house warming party for tiny favors. They can fit cupcakes, little wine bottles, candy, healthy snack mixes or tiny plants.
I love giving gifts and receiving gifts for Christmas. It is always nice if the gifts have a personal touch or something handmade. Handmade gifts are great but they can be time consuming to make. You can add personal touches to gifts by wrapping them with some fun diy Christmas gift bags and tags. These cute ideas include snowflakes, reindeer, Santa and more of the Christmas classics! People will love to receive gifts with these cute wrappings. Here are some fun ideas from around the web!
Santa’s coming, Santa’s coming, I know him! I still love Santa and the magic that comes with Santa around Christmas. My daughter believes still and I will keep that going as long as I can. Santa brings presents so why not bring presents to others dressed up as Santa or bring some Santa “kisses”. This DIY Santa gift bags are perfect for school class gifts, gifts to friends or Christmas parties. You can get creative with what you put inside these cute gift bags! It doesn’t just have to be candy, although Hershey Kisses work well for the Santa kisses. I made easy Santa belts to go on the bags. You can use both the gift tag and Santa. You could also pick one or the other depending on your preference.
Halloween is just around the corner! Okay, maybe down the street and around the corner but I am getting ready. We are getting into the fun time of year when all the holidays start coming up. October through December is probably my favorite time of year. I get to decorate for all the holidays and make fun treats. Plus it gets nice out instead of this 100 and something degree weather in Phoenix. That is why I am ready to start now in September to get ready for all the fall, Halloween, Thanksgiving etc. fun! These little diy ghost treat bags with printable tags are the cutest and ridiculously easy to make. These would be cute to give to kids in class or neighbors. Even on Halloween why not give out candy in little treat bags?! You can’t go wrong with the classic ghosts for Halloween.
Being a mom can be really hard sometimes. Usually when I put my daughter in time out we both need a little time out. I love her more than anything but sometimes I need a time out! It’s funny how time out to kids is a punishment but as an adult a little time to just sit in the corner in peace sounds fantastic! That is why I thought it would be fun to make a little mom’s time out bag. Mom’s deserve a little “time out” break to just relax and take care of themselves. You can put whatever your mom or mom friends like in their time out bag. Little spa/beauty things, nail polish, wine, tea, chocolate, coloring pages and anything a mom might like for her “time out”. You can have a bunch of little bags at a mothers day party to give to a group of moms.
These printable dreidel gift boxes are really easy to put together and perfect for gelt or tiny treats. I made them to fit gelt but you can put other small candy, stickers or bubbles in there. They are perfect gifts for a large group or favors at a Hanukkah party! You could also use the dreidels for a banner or table top decoration.
What you need to make them:
download the printable at the bottom of the page
white card stock paper
something fun to put inside!
Print out the printable and cut out the dreidel shapes. With the extra paper cut a strip 3 inches long and about 2 inches wide. Fold the white strip of paper into thirds. Then put tape on the inside of both sides with sticky side out. Press the dreidel with the design facing outwards against the tape. Repeat on the back with the plain dreidel.
These DIY Christmas tree gift bags are a cute way to give out little gifts. You can use them for candy, small gifts or gift cards. All you need is glitter card stock paper to make it! I love giving out little gifts to people around the holidays. It can be tricky to figure out who to give gifts to and who not to. You don’t want to leave anyone out or not give a gift to someone who gives you one. I like to carry around some gift bags to make sure I have them in case I need a last minute little gift. We are finally in Christmas mode and I just love this time of year. My daughter gets even more into than I do with all of the decorations. I don’t know another 4 year old that love decorations as much as she does. Luckily she also likes the little crafty projects like I do too.
