    Default looking for a special graduation gift for granddaughter

    Does anyone have any s***estions for a special gift I can give my granddaughter for graduation? I know she can use the money, but I would also like to give her something she can keep, hopefully with sentimental value. I've looked at dated graduation charms and other jewelry, but am really hoping to come up with something really special. Thanks

    How about a picture frame engraved with the date and her grad picture in it?

    They have a store in the mall called Things Remembered. They have a huge selection of things that you can get and have engraved or embroidred (or howerver you spell it). Tons of neat stuff. I don't know where you are, but if there's one near you, you may want to check it out.

    Do you have a special piece of jewelry that you own? I'll bet she would appreciate something like that over any other gift (well maybe money LOL)

    My neice/god-daughter is getting confirmed next weekend and I wanted to get her something special also. My sis told me to please not get her expensive jewelry because she tends to lose things. Instead I ordered her a jewelry box. I figured it's something that she'll probably keep forever and maybe if she has a place to store things, she won't lose them. I ordered mine from Kohls.com. It was in the clearance section $70 down to $22. The pictures on the web really don't do it justice, it's very nice. In fact I might order one for myself. I will also give her money, but like you, I wanted to get her a keepsake.

    I don't know if you are into sewing or not, and it probably is a bit too late, even so it can be done. My oldest granddaughter is graduating in May 2010, so I have some time, but I am making her a quilt. A full size quilt. I will give her money, but I want her to have a quilt made by me, that she can take to college with her and later on to her first apt. etc. Something that will remind her of our times together. I am piecing the top and probably also the back, but I will have the machine quilting done by a quilt store, they offer that service.

    My DD graduates from High School on May 22nd. Hopefully I will finish her quilt on time. But I made her a poster of different photo's that represent her it will be on display at after prom tomorrow she absolutely loves it. I am also making her a cookbook with recipes & pictures of her favorite recipes. A photo album would be a neat idea especially if you have history to go with the photo's which she can pass down to her children it's too easy to lose that history.
