These chipboard albums would make the perfect gift for your high school graduate if they’re moving away to college this summer. Add a recipe book to a hamper of ingredients and kitchen tools so that they can make one of their favorite meals if they are moving into a house or apartment.

Recipe cards can also be quickly and easily be designed and printed at home for cookie exchanges, holiday dinner parties and food gifts.
