Good Graduation Gift Ideas - Great Presents for Graduates

Are you cracking your head for good graduation gift ideas?

Graduation is a time of passage for an individual. It is a milestone that is usually celebrated with a solemn ceremony and a joyful reception.

Graduation is often accompanied by the giving of gifts to the graduate to show pride in his / her accomplishment. When you receive a graduation announcement in the mail, one of the first things you ask is "What will make a good graduation gift?"

Graduation gifts are more than just a token. Graduation gifts can hold great meaning to the person receiving it. When picking a gift for the upcoming grad, ask yourself the following questions:

  • What kind of graduation ceremony is this [high school, college, etc.]?

  • What was the person's course of study?

  • What does the graduate like?

  • What does the graduate need?

When a person graduates from high school, he / she will either be going directly into the workforce or continuing studies at a college or university. For those on the university track, good graduation gifts could include the things they will need for their freshman year: items for the dorm room (twin sheet sets, laptop computer, small television), gas cards (for coming home for visits), phone cards (for keeping in touch with friends and family), school supplies, or other items the upcoming college freshman will need.

For individuals moving directly into the workforce, you may consider giving a gift they can use on the new job. Also, you may want to look at personalized gifts such as monogrammed items (planners, shirts, etc.).

For the college graduate, a good graduation gift could include items needed as the graduate moves from the college scene to the professional life. A good graduation gift to consider for the new college graduate could be a briefcase.

Also, you can look at investing in electronic or digital equipment for the new graduate, such as flash drives or computers. Graduates from college are also facing a great deal of competition for available jobs, so a good graduation present to consider may be a session with a job coach or private employment agency.

If you wish to give the graduate a present that will help him unwind after all his years of study, you could consider a gift of a weekend getaway. This gives the graduate an opportunity to unwind and have fun before jumping into the new responsibilities he may be facing.

For a more personal graduation gift idea, you can create a photo DVD (with or without music) chronicling the graduate's life from birth to graduation. Most computers now come with DVD burning capabilities and programs where you can create a unique photo DVD at home. If your computer doesn't have this capability, most photo labs now offer this service.

Graduation is a major step in a person's life. The gifts that the graduate receives hold special meaning. Whether it's something you purchase or something you make, there are many good graduation gifts that can show the graduate that you wish to share in this happy occasion.
