Graduation Gift- money balloons

It's graduation season! That means lots of gifts. I love giving a creative gift, but I want it to be useful as well!  Today I have an idea to creatively give a gift that will be used and loved by any graduate:

Money Balloons for Graduation

Graduation gift idea- give the graduation what they really want- money

What would a 18 year old want more than anything else?  What could they use more than anything else?


Cash in a card is always welcome!  But I love giving creative gifts, so I did a graduation version of my birthday balloons.

graduation gift:  give cash as a gift

I gathered balloons in our local high school colors, dollar bills, and a bag to put them in.

I rolled up the dollar bills and stuck them inside the balloons.

I blew the balloons up just a little bit since I was putting them in a bag.

I think it would also be really cute to do huge balloons in a box or to give balloons filled with helium
and tied with a string!

To decorate the bag a bit, I made pom poms from yarn, tassels from floss, and used a free printable card.  Then I tied it all to the bag with ribbon.

Don't forget to add a safety pin to the ribbons for the graduate to pop the balloons!

This is a cute and festive gift that any graduate will love!!
