Yes, graduation is around the corner for some lucky graduates! Whether you’re a friend in college, or an Aunt that’s 1,000 miles away, I wanted to give you some cool ideas that you can use, when you’re looking to give a gift that counts. Instead of giving $50 to the local Walmart, why not be creative?
Here are 22 ideas that you can use, when you’re looking to purchase a graduation gift this upcoming season…
#1 Book on the career - What career choice is he/she choosing? You could find a really good guide. Amazon is a great place to start here.
#2 Make a photo album – Grab some pictures over the years. It doesn’t have to be just college. A simple little book can create a lot of memories.
#3 Getting a job book / resume tips - Since they are no longer going to be in college, you might as well give them some tips on how to write the perfect resume.
#4 Picture frame - Just like the album, you can put a great picture of you and the graduate in it.
#5 Organizer – Life gets a little hectic once you get out of college. There’s no better way than giving out an organizer to make life a little easier.
#6 Gift card - Sure, you can get a gift card, but make it count. Think of something that they will truly need.
#7 Personalized items - Find something in a personalized store that you can personalize. There are a lot of items to choose from here.
#8 Jewelry – Get something special that he/she can wear. Complete it with the year that they are graduating.
#9 Money Tree - These are great. What you can do is clip some money to the tree and even put a little saying on it!
#10 Stuffed animal - It may sound like something for a little kid, but if you put a personalized message on it, it can really mean something special!
#11 Frame - Since graduation is here, you can get a great frame that is customized to fit their degree.
#12 Pen set - Nothing says professional than a pen set. Carry around one of these when on a job interview, etc.
#13 Mug – If you know someone is a coffee drinker, get something that means something to them.
Nothing says gift more than customization. As long as you make it unique and something that they are going to care about, you’re going to find that your gift is going to mean something. Just make it stand out and you shouldn’t have a problem at all!
