High School Graduation Gift Idea for $12

This is a sponsored conversation on behalf of Dollar Tree. All opinions and photos are my own. With Graduation season in full force, I have been putting together some fun and useful gifts while trying not to break the bank. If you have a high school student graduation this year, you probably know quite a few people whom you would like to acknowledge and I have a great graduation gift idea for you that retails for $12, thanks to the Dollar Tree. If you have your own basket and filling, this gift price drops down to $10.Graduation Gift Basket

It is so easy and fun to put together a gift basket of necessities for the graduating student. This is what the final gift looks like. Graduation Gift Basket

Here is a closer look at what is inside. Great-inexpensive-graduation-gifts First we have flip-flops – kids can never have enough of these and they come in a ton of varieties. Erasable white board – for to do lists and reminders. A box of chocolates for those study sessions or a sweet treat. College-must-haves-cheap A tool set is helpful for any teen. A laundry bag so they can do their laundry (yay!) A brush and comb set. Graduation-gift-basket-idea Peppermints – these are great for freshing breath, to ease a sore throat or just for a sweet snack. Lined note pad – who doesn’t need these? Highlighters and index cards – perfect if they are going on to college. Then I purchased a tub and decorative filling for only a buck a piece. If you have basket’s already, you have just saved yourself more money. inexpensive-gift-basket-supplies I put everything in the basket. Dollar Tree Gift Basket Idea But we are not done yet. I added some tulle left over from my last Dollar Tree project and a cute tag. I am attaching a printable for the tags, because greeting cards are terribly expensive these days.

High School Graduation gifts do not have to be expensive. See what you can find at the dollar store!


  1. These are such clever ideas! My nephew is graduating high school at the end of the month and I really don’t want to give a cliche envelope of cash! 🙂

  2. What a good idea! Peppermints and chocolates are nice touches, of course.
    Flip flops are always important for summer and also for starting college and needing them in the showers!

  3. Great ideas. I’ve been thinking about giving my nephew more than just money which I know he wants but I just want to give him a little something extra. This post is a big help. Thanks.
