    Default Frugal Graduation Gift Idea

    My neice just graduated from high school and I wanted to give her a neat gift
    but not spend a fortune. I got an idea from a "specialty" catalog that I receive
    in the mail - theirs was almost $60 and my version was under $15.

    What I did was buy a 16x20 frame from a craft store (AC Moore) and the bought a
    mat that had an opening for a 5x7 picture. I put a picture we took of her and
    her family at graduation in that. The mat has plenty of room for her friends and
    family to write her little notes. I was thinking that I'd have to have a mat cut
    special for it, but one of the employees helped me find a mat that was ready
    made. It actually was double matted - the first opening was for an 8x10 picture
    and then had a smaller mat for a 5x7 photo. My neice really liked it a lot too.

    I thought it was perfect for someone that age especially - but would also be
    nice for an anniversary party, retirement party, etc. Any occasion really where
    people would have occasion to leave special thoughts or messages for someone.

    Thats such a lovely idea. Another one I've seen is a charm for a charm bracelet - in the shape of a diploma.
