If You Were 18 again...

...what would YOU want for graduation? Inquiring minds want to know! Seems like there's a bumper crop of high school graduates this year; all us middle-aged mamas are wondering what to give to honor the occasion. Yes, we know cash is always nice, but that's sooooo not creative. And, yes, we know the latest/greatest techno toy would be welcome, but that's soooo not affordable! Most of us who graduated in the 60s and 70s received baby doll pajamas (remember those? my big sister got 22 pairs!); I'm thinking that may not be on the Top Ten list for today's grads.

So tell me: what's the coolest graduation gift you got? Speak up! Only a few more shopping days!

I don't have any memory of getting gifts for graduation, but I know I did. My sister, June, definitely gave me a gift. And Mother did, also.
But I've never been a material person so I remember the people who gave, but not the gift. Money was scarce and I imagine I was given money for college.
