It’s graduation weekend at the local university here and of course high school graduations are coming up near the end of this month (can you believe May is here?!). Do you know anyone graduating? Graduation is a perfect time to celebrate-it’s such a fun accomplishment for the grad. And clearly we’ve got chocolate on the brain because we gave you a chocolate graduation lei idea on Friday and now today we have a chocolate candy bouquet. Here’s our Graduation Bouquet Gift Idea:
The fun thing with this is that you can also throw gift cards into the bouquet. That way you can make it worth however much you want. Throw in an Amazon gift card so the grad can get college necessities or a restaurant gift card so that the grad can celebrate.
We out ours in a cute mug, but you could also use a jar or cute box.
Graduation Gift Idea-Candy Bouquet:
(some affiliate links)
- Graduation Mug
- Candy bars
- Skewer sticks
- Tape (packing tape is ideal)
- Gift cards
- Floral Foam
- Tissue paper
- Tag (see below)
We actually found our mug at the dollar store and added the vinyl ourselves. If you want to do this option, grab some vinyl and cut it out and put it on:
Otherwise, get one that’s ready to use and go for it.
Wrap your floral foam with tissue paper and put it down into the mug.
Using the skewers and tape, put the candy bars on sticks. Stick them down into the floral foam.
Do the same thing with any gift cards you are using.
Place your tag on a stick as well and place it in the bouquet.
Here’s a tag for you to use. You can right click and save to your computer, then open in a program like Word or Pages and size how you want, then print. Or you can use this PDF that has several on it already.
Have FUN celebrating graduation!
