I sure wish I knew about this creative gift when my kids and their friends were graduating.

Few of us know how much cash is appropriate, and we often feel that money or gift cards alone are too impersonal, So why not and make something special out of money and the school colors. Your graduate can keep the memory of the lei from a photograph taken. See instructions below.
