But then I read this adorable suggestion on the College Confidential discussion boards. A mother mentioned that her son had received a box of wonderful, homemade cookies and two postcards from a friend's mom: ďOn one side they said in big letters: I NEED COOKIES! On the other side, she had her name & address on the right, and a stamp. On the left she had a list of cookie flavors he could choose from.Ē Love that idea - it's heartfelt, thoughtful and inexpensive. And any college kid, grad student or 20something would love it!

Here's a round-up of graduation gift suggestions for college bound kids, as well as new college grads; graduation survival tips to keep everyone healthy and hydrated at the big ceremony; and party planning and buffet advice too. (And if that's not enough, my About colleague, Denise Witmer, the guide to parenting teens, has an entire array of articles on planning graduation parties too.)
