4 Meaningful Graduation Gift Ideas

Graduation season is here, and if you are stumped for gift ideas, keep reading. Why not celebrate the graduate with something as special and unique as they are? My oldest child was graduating from graduate school just a few weeks before my youngest was graduating from Pre-K. While extremely different achievements, I wanted to celebrate both of my graduates with a very meaningful gift. I know with the chaos of everything going on, it can be hard to come up with gift ideas. Let me share some ideas with you that I hope will inspire you, on your quest to find a truly, meaningful graduation gift for the graduate in your life.

If you have a passion for photography like me, you probably have many photos of the graduate over the years leading up to this moment. You can use them to make a photo book filled with milestones and events that have helped mold them into the person they are today. Of course, you will need to take some great photos at the graduation to add to the book.

On the Walmart Photo Site you can create an account for free that allows you to upload your photos and start customizing your book. When you are finished just save it. As soon as you upload the graduation photos you can finish the book and order it. Best of all when you choose one of their 1-Hour Express Photo Books, you can pick it up at the store, in just one hour! This means, you will have the book to give them at the graduation party after the ceremony!


Another great idea is a custom diploma frame. This was what I gave my daughter when she graduated with her Master’s degree. Church Hill Classics is where I shopped for it. I was able to customize every aspect of the gorgeous frame. It featured her university and I could customize many other elements. I added a school medallion, upgraded glass and was able to choose the mat and frame I wanted. It is a beautiful way to preserve and display her achievement. Church Hill Classics has document frames of all kinds. I truly think their frames make an amazing graduation gift.

So after all the studying and hard work it would be nice to send the graduate on a well-deserved trip. Maybe there is a special place they have been wanting to visit, or perhaps you want to accompany your special graduate on a trip or even a weekend giveaway. No matter what the destination is, you can believe it will be filled with lifetime memories. You can find great travel deals at Easy Click Travel. Check out their website and see how much you can save on hotels, flights, cruises, rental cars, activities and attractions. There are promo codes on PromosPro that will save you even more off their best deal.

The last idea I want to share with you, is a beautiful charm bracelet filled with memories leading up to graduation. Soufeel has beautiful sterling silver bracelets and charms that are so unique and are a perfect way to showcase the people, animals, hobbies and interests that are near to their heart.


I personally have charm bracelets and charms from Soufeel, so I can attest to their superior quality and design. You can add photos and engraving to their charms to create one-of-a-kind masterpieces.

Whatever you decide to gift your graduate, don’t forget your presence means the most to them along with all the support you gave them along the way. Best of luck to the class of 2017!
