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 16×20 frame from a craft store (AC Moore) and the bought a
mat that had an opening for a 5×7 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 8×10 picture
and then had a smaller mat for a 5×7 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.
