Graduation Gift Ideas- We need your suggestions!

It is definitely Graduation Gift Season!   I’ve been told that everyone likes CASH (or gift cards);  that girls love anything monogrammed; and that everyone likes memorabilia from their college destination!

I asked some close friends with recent graduates about suggestions for monetary amounts.  I asked them separately and they both told me the same thing:

  • For a relative or close dear friend:  $100
  • An average amount:  $40-$50
  • For someone you don’t really know but are friends with their parents and they sent you an invitation:  $20-$25

Why I created the Scoop the Poop Survey

Before kids my baby was a Miniature Schnauzer named Schnapps.   I would walk him on my Brookhaven street and never even thought of bringing a scoop bag with me.  I don’t even think they made them back then!  Well…this was only a problem if he did his business (#1 or #2) in one particular yard.   We avoided that yard like the plague because I did not want to be yelled at by the man who HATED for dogs to even step foot in his yard.  … Read More »
