$5 Bridal Shower or Graduation Gift Idea

Just hours before one of my student’s graduation party I realized my original gift idea was out of stock in town. (Yes, I’m a procrastinator!)

Panicked, I racked my brain for a new idea: a personalized cookbook.

All you need is a photo album and recipe cards.

Copy out your favorite recipes on recipe cards (or pretty cardstock) and organize them in a photo album. If you have time, collect recipes from her family and friends. Slip the blank cards into the back of the album for her to fill up with new recipes.

Spice it up with a few kitchen utensils or spices and some homemade cookies for a cute, inexpensive gift!

This idea works especially well if you know the recipient and her tastes, but with many high school graduates heading to live on their own for the first time, tried, true and easy recipes are sure to be a hit.

Now that the graduation flurry is just about over, we’re ready to enter the season of wedding showers. Wouldn’t this make a fun little gift?
