Summer is here, which means lots of people are out there buying great gifts for their graduate on their list. You could give them cash and gift cards, but let’s face it, that’s kind of boring. So this time, try something unique. Something any graduate would love to have. Something they won’t be getting from anyone else at their party this year.
Pay attention to shipping costs to make sure they’re not exorbitant. A $40 bid for a $50 gift card is a good deal, but if the seller is charging some ridiculous cost for regular first-class shipping (like $8), your savings decrease dramatically. Most sellers offer free eshop codes with “free” shipping or a nominal charge because they weigh next to nothing and cost little more than a stamp.
While this one is a little bit on the pricey side it’s worth it if you have a graduate who is looking to travel. This could also come in handy for someone looking to learn additional languages.

This pocket sized translator speaks 14 different languages and has an audio and visual display. It has different conversions for clothes, currency and has an included alarm clock.
When deciding the number of entries, be sure to keep the number divisible by 12 since each regular bunco game includes 12 players. If you decide to have 48 players, you will have 4 separate games. Knowing the number of people will also help decide the entry fee. If you want to raise $1200, each of the 48 players will have a $25 entry fee.
A budget Spring Break trip does not have to leave you lodging at the Roach Motel. If you can split the costs of lodging, you can also upgrade where you stay usually. One way to save on both lodging and meal costs is to rent a condo with a group. Many condo rentals sleep 6-8 people and there are some great deals online for those who want the luxury of a condo and are willing to share accomodations. The added benefit is the access to a full kitchen where you can buy food to prepare meals and save on restaurant costs. A weekly rental for a 2 bedroom condo may cost $1000/week but split between 6 people, the average cost per person is under $200 each. A regular hotel room for a single will likely run about $600 for the same week.
There are several ways to give a spa gift card. The easiest and most convenient way is to just email it to the recipient. Then they can simply print it and use. You can also buy online and mail it to the person. Sometimes there are shipping charges, these vary. It’s also possible to have your cards gift wrapped as there are gift boxes available for them.
