A great present and money-saving gift basket for the student who is leaving home for the first time, is a laundry basket. Fill the basket with things they will use like laundry detergent, liquid softer and those things you put in the dryer.
Bed sheets, a blanket, a pillow,
alarm clock (for all those early mornings), a bath robe, a small night
light, a torch and a big toiletry bag with lots of big sized toiletries.
It's amazing how much will fit in a laundry basket.
If there are a few of you wanting to buy a gift for a friend leaving for University or College, each one of you can buy one or two gifts and put the gifts all together in this laundry gift basket.
Tie a big bow around the gift basket and attach a big gift tag.
Getting their drivers license is one thing, but to get a car (I mean an
old car not a new one!) for their graduation would be awesome. "Freedom for parents!"
Depending on how much you want to spend, fill this unique graduation gift basket with things like, car deodorizer / air fresheners, seat covers, steering wheel cover, map /books, or a GPS, auto emergency kit (flares, jumper cables, first aid kit, flash light, a break-down kit) and certificates for a car wash or for gas.
Giving a gift basket to go with their new car is a great idea. The basket to put all these things in could be a dark colored square basket. Ideal for storing little things in the trunk.
High School Graduation Gifts. Graduating from high school means they have done it! "Congratulation!" Most of them will go onto further education, this means books, paper, bags, bus passes, pens, binders, calculators, laptops, (deep breath) the list goes on.
Fill a gift basket with things they will need and help them on
The basket to use for this high school graduation gift could be a storage basket. Great for making into a graduation gift basket and for storing all the above.

Teenagers love food. A big gift basket filled with lots of easy to prepare foods like chocolate snacks, cookies, chips and dips, tins of soups, tinned foods, pickles, and a tin and bottle opener is a must!
Add instant noodles, boxes of cereals,
instant coffee, lots of plastic plates and cups because they hate washing the dishes and filling up the dishwasher, for some unknown reason. You know what foods they love.
And don't forget a few gift certificates for pizza places, take-out places and grocery stores.
Wrap your unique graduation gift basket in cellophane and make a special personalized congratulations card or gift tag to go with it.
Nurses and the other medical people work hard to keep us in good health.
We have to help them all we can. A good way to start is with nurse
graduation gifts made into the best gift baskets around.
Below are a few graduation gift ideas to choose from. These can be from individual people or as group gift basket.
Nurse graduation gifts. This basket has to be a white basket, all
clean and hygienic. Filler to use for this basket is light blue
shredded paper. Arrange your nurses supplies on top, including items like
note pads and pens, memo pads, lanyards, name badge holders, and even a gift
certificate towards buying scrubs (they are so expensive to buy!)
A disposable stethoscope. Watches or timers.
A small compact blood pressure device.
Bandage scissors are essential for changing and applying bandages.

patients. It's nice to come home and rest their tired feet in a foot

The basket to use for this could be a brightly colored plastic bowl. Line it with a jazzy towel. Fill the bowl with foot-soothing creams, Epsom salts, foot salts, therapeutic oils, foot scrubs, and a wooden foot massage roller.
