As I mentioned in a previous post, my brother and Thomas’ sister graduated from high school last weekend. I’m normally kind of a terrible gift buyer (because I’m cheap), but I get excited about crafting gifts for the ones I love.
For their graduation gifts, I wanted to get them some things they would find useful in their everyday college lives. So, after scouring Pinterest for a few days, I decided on a fun gift basket of college must haves.
If you want to make a graduation basket, here’s what you’ll need:
We went on a shopping spree to get things we considered musts for college. This could include anything from school supplies, to dorm decor, to snacks.
We grabbed these storage baskets from Target for $3 each.
I also printed this cute label for the baskets, just to give them a more personal touch.
Once you’ve gathered your supplies, put the baskets together in a way that you deem cute.
The “Boy Basket.”
The “Girl Basket” (includes a sewing kit).
Our siblings loved their gifts, and we’re really happy with how they turned out. Each basket cost less than $40 total, and I think they’ll find the supplies really useful once they’re living away from home.
