I received a letter in the mail today inviting my husband, kids, and I to my cousin's daughter's high school graduation. Her graduation is in 8 days...yikes! And even though my family won't be able to make it I still feel we should give her a gift. My husband and I met my cousin's daughter 2 times before when she was about 8 years old so it's not like we are complete strangers. :P LOL Please help me find something nice for her special day. Thanks in advance!

Money is always a good thing to get But if you don't want to send money Get her a photo album or scrapbook where she can put all her graduation pictures in. Someone got me a scrapbook with some pages that had to do with a graduate and I loved it! I am 26 now and I still look back at it time and time again.

A scrapbook sounds very nice. I'll take this into consideration! Thank you for your help!

If you are not really sure what to get her for graduation why not try getting say a photo album for her to keep all her memories in? Or a gift certificate to a salon for a haircut or styling, something that might appeal to her new found sense of freedom. lol I know I would have loved to get either one of those. Sometimes cash is just so impersonal. Nice, but doesn't take a lot of effort or say much to that person. JMO

Yes, cash does seem very impersonal, especially for such an occasion as a graduation. Even though I haven't seen this family member in years, I feel the need to give her something a little more personal. Thank you for your ideas. I'll consider these.
