A pen inscribed with his name and the year he is graduating
I would say money or a gift card. High school kids are hard to shop for so I think that it'd be a good idea to give them the option to purchase the gift themselves.
The traditional gift of an inscribed or monogrammed pen, picture frame, or paperweight is always nice especially if the graduate is a family relation or God child. Today, I think it best to give giftcards or money and let the graduate choose electronics, dorm decorations, travel, etc. It just seems more practical.
Ask him/her what he wants, generally electronic products for boys and beautiful clothes for girls would be nice choices.
A memorable blown-up framed photo digitally and artistically rendered of your child being in high school for his/her bedroom wall. This will give the photograph a different, fresh look that probably would make your graduate to keep it on the wall longer. Bonus: a matching new bookcase! A 13" laptop would add all the happiness to your child's 4 years of hardwork and is specifically handy for college. Or a digital SLR camera where your child could perhaps produce new talents from it and explore around.
If she's a girl, this might be nice. http://www.examiner.com/review/purse-ho … or-ladies. It's a purse hook. One if those things you never knew you needed until you get one.
A month ago, I personally made a scrapbook for 5 of my volleyball players who graduated. It contained our pictures together, letters from me, their co-players and their teachers. It took a lot of effort and money on my part, but the huge smiles and the hug they gave me were priceless.
I would give them three books :
The richest man in Babylon - George Clason
How to win friends and influence people - Dale Carnegie
Men are from Mars women are from Venus - John Gray
Information, skills and knowledge they can use in the real world to fulfill their dreams.............
Failing that an iPad always goes down well :-)
I gave all my nieces and nephews a copy of "Harper's Study Bible" when they graduated from high school......
These days...a job if you have the ability to give it to them. Good luck to college graduates.
Cool and new gadget for the boys and a gift card for the girls. Girls love fashion and trends so gift cards will give them the freedom to shop for themselves. Maybe this hub can help you decide rpenafiel.hubpages.com/hub/Graduation-Stuff-Gifts-To-Consider-This-Graduation-Season
