The caps. The gowns. The pomp and circumstance.
Graduation is a special time. It represents accomplishment in anticipation for further success. Whether it be from kindergarten or graduate school, graduating is a huge step for anyone. Want to show someone you’re proud? Take a look at this guide to help you find the perfect gift.
Pre-K and Kindergarten
Mini caps and gowns have to be the most adorable thing ever (and I bet your little graduate makes it look even cuter). Check out these gifts for the tiny tots:
What little kid doesn’t like to cuddle up with a stuffed animal? Get them a graduation themed animal for snuggling and keepsake.
There’s no better way to celebrate learning than with more learning! Buy your little graduate a developmental book, puzzle, or game to keep his or her growing mind strong.
Ok, ok. So this is actually more for you. But hey, what kid wouldn’t be proud to have his or her special moment on display?
Buy your graduate something to show off! A t-shirt is a great way for your little one to show the world what he or she accomplished!
Kids + Toys = Happiness! Kids love toys, so why not reward their success with something fun to play with? Perhaps that Barbie doll they’ve been wanting, or that toy car they’ve been begging for!
Grade School and Junior High
Kids in the pre-teen and teenage years are trying to figure things out, so buying a great book with lots of inspiration is always an ideal gift.
Is your graduate a fan of pop? Rock? Country? You can never go wrong with good music. Pick up a CD or a gift card to his or her favorite music store.
Their are tons of teen-centered magazines that are full of fun quizzes, fashion tips, music and movie reviews. A magazine subscription is an excellent gift.
Jewelry and Trinkets
Have them represent their accomplishments in style! There are countless graduation-themed jewelry items out there, from earrings to necklaces to bracelets and more.
They’re becoming their own person and the bedroom is reflecting that! Buy something fun for their room like a new desk, lamp, or fun bedspread!
College and Graduate School
He or she has spent many long years reaching for this and now your graduate has finally made it. Find a gift that shows just how proud you are.
What better way to say “I’m proud of you” than with a diploma frame? They’ll be able to show off their accomplishments in their home or their swanky new office.
One of the key to being a successful working professional is staying organized. Get your graduate off on the right foot by helping him or her get a jump start with a handheld PDA.
Pen and Pencil Sets
A stylish and elegant gift, a pen set is a classic way to let your graduate know how proud you are.
Jewelry and Watches
A watch or piece of jewelry is a considerate gift for a graduating student. Have it personalized with a proverb or meaningful quote for a special touch.
Buying housewares is a lovely gift for a graduate. After all, there hasn’t been time to properly decorate as he or she has been consumed by classes and work for the last few years.
