If you need a last minute gift for a graduate, here are 5 ideas that are sure to please. They are all under $50.00.
1. Belkin cushdesk
There is nothing worse than having a laptop computer to burn your legs. One night I actually began sweating, and thought I was having hot flashes when the fan in my laptop went out. Belkin has a cushdesk for laptops for only $17.99.
This product has a gentle slope that will help reduce neck pain. There is also an anti=slide strip, that keeps your computer in place, whether it is in our lap, on a bed or in the floor. The Belkin cuses is compatable with Macbook pro 13, Macbook pro 15 and Macbook air 13.
2. Personalized photo frame
This glass frame can be engraved with the graduate’s name, graduation year, and has room for a 2 line message. The price is only $22.99. A personalized frame will be a keepsake to cherish throughout the years.
3. Restaurant gift card
If you know a favorite restaurant of the graduate, a popular spot in your town or an eatery that you enjoy, give a gift card. My brother in law gave my husband a gift card to a restaurant for his birthday a few years ago. It was for $40.00, and both of us enjoyed a goo meal.
About 10 years ago, my husband received a $50.00 restaurant gift card.we both ate at Olive Garden, and there was enough left over for our son to take a lady friend to eat. $50.00 will not do that today, but two should be able to dine well for that amount.
4.Treat the graduate to a buffet.
When my daughter graduated high school, husband and I treated her to a lunch buffet at Golden Coral lunch buffet. The young man who is ow her husband, and his mother also ate with us. We saw other graduates and their families, and had a great time.
5. Cash or check
Graduates can always use money. There is nothing like having your own funds, to buy what you desire. Purchase a really nice card, for your graduate,and write a special verse inside. Place cash or a check inside.
