    I would see if the store will correct the amount first.

    If they won’t (or can’t), I’d give her the $100 gift card and tell her it’s part b’day and part graduation and then give her an extra $50 on graduation day.

    Don’t tell her it’s part b’day and part grad. That’s just not right.

    Just give it to her as is and give her the $50 on graduation, maybe also give her a “real”  present on graduation, like a cool cell phone cover or something.

    I used to work at victoria’s secret, and I had several people return giftcards.  If you have the receipt it will probably be fine.

    $50 cash for birthday and the $100 gift card for graduation?

    If its a store you would shop at as well, could you just go back and buy a $50 gift card with the $100 and then you would have $50 for your next purchase. I guess this does not work if it is not a place you would normally spend $50. In that case I would just give her the gift card adn say it is a combo birthday and grad present. I think combo presents are fairly common and then she would be happy to get the additioanl $50 at grad.

    I’d give her $50. check for her birthday (or cash) and give her the gift card for graduation.
