It's that time of year!

It’s graduation time and I don’t care who you are, you know someone who is graduating from high school, college, kindergarten, or middle school. I’m lucky enough to have a kid graduating from high school on the very same day that I have another kid graduating from middle school. Just kill me.

Needless to say, there will be lots of celebration and fanfare. Here are some ideas for grad gifts:

• Cash is always good for older kids, but a check tucked into a sweatshirt from their new college is even better. Kids love to wear their emblems.

• A gas card is a nice alternative to cash for high school grads, keeps them from spending all their college money on Natty Light and Red Solo Cups.

• Personalized stuff: a phone cover with a photo of the kid with BFFs from Zazzle, personalized school supplies (for the younger set) from, monogrammed fleece or towels.

• Emergency kit: sewing stuff, basic tools, first aid supplies and candy.

• A gift card from their college bookstore.

Stay tuned for grad party planning…
