The Ultimate College Graduation Gift Guide

What do you buy for friends or loved ones once all their hard work and effort have paid off and have graduated from college? Well, that truly is the question that millions of us ask ourselves each year. Fortunately, there are some fantastic, fun, and original graduation gifts to choose from. Just keep reading to find out what they are.

A watch

Imagine your loved one’s face as the crack-open a fancy box on their graduation day, and find a beautiful and personalized watch inside. A piece that they can both wear and keep as a special memory of their big day.

Of course, not just any old watch will do, and just as you would with other types of jewelry, it’s well worth doing a little research before you make your choice.

In particular, be sure to pick a color that you know the recipient will love. Also, as the post at suggests you will need to consider whether a traditional watch will be best or if they would prefer a fitness tracker? Lastly, make sure that you get something meaningful engraved on the back. It can even be just their initials and the year of graduation.

A lei

A beautiful tradition that has sprung up around college graduation recently is gifting the graduate a fresh flower lei to wear on the day! These beautiful flower decorations are apart of a long Hawaiian tradition of celebration. They can be worn on many different special occasions such as graduation, weddings, and arriving in a new place.

The good news is that as this trend becomes more popular, specialist florists like the one you will find at are catering to this need. Something that means you can order an entirely constructed, stunning lei and won’t have to struggle to make your own for the graduate in question.

A gift card

College graduation is a critical time in many people’s lives. It often marks their entry into the world of work and true adulthood. Unfortunately, it also means that the graduate is likely to come across some serious living costs in the months after graduation.

With that in mind, one of the best graduation gifts can be a store or gift card. Think Amazon Prime for home essentials, or why at about a meal box service? Then at least you know they will eat well, no matter how busy their lives become.

A vacation

Lastly, what is the one thing that graduates often really need, but can’t afford to pay for themselves? It’s a vacation, of course! After all, they have probably worked themselves out studying late into the night for their exams, which isn’t the best way to begin their new job or life out of college.

Yes, a vacation can indeed be on the more expensive side of graduation gifts. Although, if you have a vacation home, providing the new graduate with access might be a cheaper way to do things? Alternatively, you may want to ask them along on a trip you are already taking. Something that allows you to provide them with a good break, but still keep the costs as low as possible.
