GOLDEN Graduation Gift Idea + Free Printable

It’s that time of year again. GRADUATION!

So what do you get graduates? The only thing that makes sense is to give them money. I mean, I don’t think I have (or ever will) meet a graduate who thinks they have too much money and doesn’t need more.  But money is so, so….boring.

I have a good friend graduating this year. Yes, I am boring– I decided to give her money. But I HAD to spice it up! A little bit of moolah, a little bit of chocolate and a little bit of sneaky. Oh yes, you’re gonna love this.

Come check out my GOLDEN Graduation Gift Idea!!

This fun and sneaky graduation gift is perfect for the unsuspecting graduate! #happythoughts #happygraduation

I started off by buying a box of Hershey’s Pot of Gold. DELICIOUS! When you open up the box there are two trays of chocolates. This is the part where I shared half the box with myself (maybe I shared, maybe I didn’t!) and left the other half untouched. I rounded up some cash and folded it–hamburger,hotdog, hamburger–nothing fancy. After I placed my cash in the bottom tray, I put the full chocolate tray on the top and put the box back together.

Wrap up some money and cleverly give it to a graduate using my GOLDEN graduation gift idea. #happythoughts #happygraduation

From here you can wrap your box or I simply just added some gold ribbon. Now you need to add my printable! Just click on the link, print, cut it out, punch a hole and attach. I wrote a message of congratulations on the back of the printable, where I also signed my name.

  1. This year I bought some bags of licorice and had my daughter wrap them up in what happened to be the school colors (didn’t plan it). I even used a coupon to get the treats, so for three kids, I spent $5.

    Oh, I am sooo keeping this tucked away as I have a graduate who is graduating next year, but love this idea! Thank you for the free printable! Bonus…who doesn’t love that! 🙂
