by Nicholas Helmick

The schoolwork is finally done, now it's time to celebrate! With summer just around the corner, it's graduation season for students across the country. Deliver a little fun to the graduate in your life in the form of a delicious candy-filled gift as recognition for all their hard work. Here are a few easy and cute DIY ideas to surprise and delight your deserving grad!


Customized Candy Jars

After years of hard work, your graduate deserves a little R&R. Why not start with an indulgent custom candy jar filled with their favorite candy and a personalized message? Grab a spare mason jar, decorate it with any crafts you have around the house (we used ribbon and stickers) and fill it with colorful and delicious candy. Use their school colors to make it more personalized: we've got Gumballs, Sixlets, foiled chocolates and more - available in every color of the rainbow.
