Creative Gift Ideas for the Graduate in Your Life

Congratulations Class of 2016 from Taylor Morrison

Every spring flowers bloom, birds sing—and students graduate from school. Graduation is an exciting milestone for the entire family to celebrate, and chances are there’s a grad in your life. How are you going to commemorate the occasion? Have some fun and make it memorable.

In Case of Emergency Break Glass – Put a chocolate bar, picture frame and printout together and you’ve got a sweet gift that will lift their spirit during those late night studies in college. Find out how to make this simple gift here.

Party at Grandma’s Club – If you or your grandparents live in a new home in Sarasota at Esplanade at Lakewood Ranch, a 55+ resort-style Florida community, plan a small party at the impressive community Amenity Center Club House. Taylor Morrison offers a number of other active lifestyle options throughout the U.S., from our homes in Southern California to Colorado and Texas to North Carolina.

Life’s a Picnic, So Celebrate – Pack up some snacks and a sense of adventure and head out to your favorite picnic spot. We’ve compiled some great picnic areas near Taylor Morrison communities.

Get Crafty with Money – Give them money, creatively. For the high school or college graduate, make this clever money lei using 100 $1 bills. For a younger grad, this candy garland of dollar butterflies fits the bill perfectly.
