Easy Graduation Gift Idea-Smart Cookie

My baby brother graduated from high school this week meaning my parents are finally done having kids in school (after about 28 years of it). I feel like I should have sent them a present, but instead I sent my baby brother one.

OK, it’s not as cool as a new computer or a car and I am sure he really appreciated the big bow (just what every 18 year old boy wants) but you can’t beat cookies right?

Smart Cookie Graduation Printable

I got a cute jar (because again, cute is key for 18 year old boys right?) at Hobby Lobby. I believe they usually cost about $5 but they were on sale for 50% off. Or you could just use a 40% off coupon (they always have one available, just google it.)

I made these cookies and filled the jar with them then added the Smart Cookie label.

I’ve created a free printable smart cookie label for you to use.

Free Printable Labels:
Mr. Smart Cookie for a Boy
Mrs. Smart Cookie for a Girl.

I printed mine on a shipping label so that it had a sticky back on it. But you can glue it on if you need to.

To spice it up a little, I put a gift card inside. You could put a gift card to anywhere or add money.

Quick and easy!

    if i had a sister and if she made me this for my graduation, i’d have cried.. Coming from a guy who didnt cry after watching ‘marley and me’ (but felt really sad), this is significant emotion! I think this is the best grad day gift a sister could give her brother.. Beats gifts such as ipods and laptops hands down.. Sentiment counts..

    Great Idea but I went on the site to get the free printable label and they were not there. Do you know of any other site with this or similar labels for the grad jars.
