Gift Ideas for Your Graduate

Updated on March 22, 2011

Finding the perfect gift for your grad can be a stressful situation, but it doesn’t always have to be. Spending some time thinking about the perfect present can make all the difference. The most important thing is to make sure they know you are there to support them in this exciting time of their life. Putting thought and effort into your gift and card can make all the difference. Here are some ideas to get you started on your search for the perfect gift.

A handmade photo collage

This is a cost-effective present, though with a little time spent it creates a great touch to show you care. Simply purchase a simple wooden frame and gather pictures of your grad to arrange in an artistic collage. Decorate the frame with trinkets representing their favorite things in life (charms from craft stores work well), so that whenever they look at your gift they are reminded of things they love.

A journal or sketchpad

This is a great gift for the artistic or creative graduate. They are at a pivotal moment in their lives, and they will probably appreciate having a place to record their thoughts and dreams. To add a personal touch, write a thoughtful note in the front cover to inspire them and make them think of you every time they use it.

A spa day

A great gift for a girl, but guys can appreciate it too! Your grad has worked hard to come to this point, and they deserve a day of pampering. You can choose to treat yourself to a spa day too with your grad, and this will give you some special bonding time to reflect on their years of hard work.

A small camera (still or video)

It is a great idea to get your grad one of these, especially if they have a special summer trip planned. It will come in handy for them to capture all their special moments.

Fly in someone special for graduation

Does your grad have a friend or relative who lives far away and they haven’t seen in a while? Nothing beats showing you care with a special surprise visit for their special day!

Remember to help your grad enjoy this special time. Nothing is a better present then your encouragement and support!
