20 DIY Graduation Gift Ideas Your Graduate Will Love
Searching for graduation gift ideas? We have 20 DIY projects that your graduate will love!
Graduation season is upon us, and it can get pretty expensive to buy a gift for every graduate you know. Instead of buying a gift, create a heart-felt, handmade gift of your own! Not only will it be budget-friendly, but you skip the impact of buying new, too! Here are 20 DIY graduation gift ideas that you and your graduate will love:
12. Create DIY decor with chalkboard paint (perfect for their new dorm or apartment!)
16. Make your own cookbook full of family recipes
18. Upcycle a plaid shirt into an awesome backpack (if they’re headed to college in the fall)
19. Give them a basket full of green cleaning supplies like DIY laundry detergent. (Sure, it’s a bit boring, but totally practical. I remember receiving a laundry basket full of cleaning items and I really appreciated it once I moved out on my own!)
If you’re not the DIY type, considering buying from local artists and crafters on Etsy. You could also buy eco-friendly luggage for all of their new adventures! Get creative and think outside of the box!
