3 Ideas for Great Graduation Gifts for Seniors

Try one of these to mark the passage to adulthood

Here are three ideas for unusual high school graduation gifts for seniors.

1. A framed share of stock. Your favorite senior may never get rich with one share of stock, but giving a framed share of stock in a special company is a great way to help mark the transition from child to adult. OneShare.com specializes in getting young adults (and older ones, too!) interested in investing by selling single shares of framed stock. You can commemorate the passage of childhood by giving a gift in a company like Disney or Dreamworks or pick a company your senior enjoys, like Microsoft, Harley-Davidson or Coca-Cola.

2. An experience day. If your favorite graduating senior has an adventurous streak, you can celebrate his or her graduation with a gift from Cloud 9 Living. Put them behind the seat of a race car, let them jump out of a plane, or send them aloft in a hot air balloon. Or if they don't have a thrill-seeker gene, choose a gift such as a day at the spa or the golf course. Any of these gifts will make your favorite graduate feel like a "real adult."

3. A "no-parents-allowed" vacation. Nothing says "I'm an adult" like getting out of the clutches of your parents and going off for a trip with your pals. Depending on your budget, it could be a short weekend getat a local campsite or a longer getaway farther from home. Travel sites like Travelocity can help you find good vacation deals, especially if you wait and book a last-minute getaway.
