  • In need of a creative gift idea for a high school graduate who will be going away to college? I like to give practical gifts that they’ll use.
    When putting together gift ideas, I start with one piece. In this case, it was the colorful purse umbrella. It’s small enough to carry in a backpack for those rainy walks across campus.
    Every girl needs a set of stationery for any occasion to keep in touch.
    I couldn’t resist these binder clips. They are both colorful and useful.
    Command strips are essential for dorm room decor. They’ll hold picture frames that otherwise can’t be hung without damage to walls. Where were these when I was in school?
    And of course we need a way to “wrap it up”. I used a metal basket which can be used in a number of ways, including a shower caddy or dorm room storage. Rather than traditional tissue paper, I used a flour sack towel {for the same cost!}
