Top 5 Considerations When Buying a Graduation Gift
A graduation gift is recognition of academic achievement and the perseverance of the student over an often long and sometimes arduous course of study. It also marks a turning point in the student’s life, whether going to college, graduate school, or entering the workforce which is the next step. Before choosing a personalized gifts for a graduate, there are five top things to consider.
#1 How Well do you Know the Graduate?
If you know the graduate well, it will be easy to decide on a personalized gift and a customized message that fits. On the other hand, if the graduate is an acquaintance or the child of a co-worker, then you may want to ask a few questions before deciding on the type of personalized gift to give. A graduation award with her name and date may be more appropriate than a teddy bear with a graduation cap. There are gifts that you can safely give to graduates even if you do not know them that well.
#2 What are the Graduate’s Interests?
You can find gifts that specifically commemorate graduation from medical school, business school or law school. Even some high school programs have a specialized concentration in an academic field. The messages you select for the the gift can directly address the graduate’s interests, aspirations and accomplishments. A graduation plaque, inspirational quote or keepsake in the form of a book all have room for personal messages.
#3 Is College Next?
If the graduate is going onto college or grad school, coffee could very well become an integral part of future study sessions. Tote bags will come in handy when going to class or the library. A commemorative pillow can be displayed in a dorm room. A personalized wooden book with a graduation theme that opens up to a clock on the right side and a picture on the left side is perfect for a desk.
#4 Are You Mailing the Gift?
If you need to mail the gift to an out-of-state student because you cannot attend the graduation, you may have your online order sent directly to the student in time for the celebration. UPS rates are reasonable, especially when you choose ground instead of overnight delivery, and you may be able to get free shipping depending on the products being purchased.
#5 Do You Want to Make a Lasting Impression?
A gift made of glass or wood will be kept and cherished for years. Some engraved gifts look more like promotional products instead of presents you want to give a special person. Graduation presents that make a lasting impression will always have a place in the dorm room, or the home, or the office because they add to the décor and stand for a memorable occasion.
Before you make a decision about which personalized gift you will purchase for the graduates you know, consider these five questions. Let the answers guide you to the right graduation gift to honor the student’s hard work and determination whether he or she is a close relative or a distant acquaintance.
Last week, one of our customers shared with us how much her HUSBAND has impacted her life. Check it out below:
My husband was truly pleased when he opened the anniversary present I purchased from your site. His favorite hobby is wood working, so the rosewood jewelry box turned out to be the perfect selection. I had his initials engraved on the top of the case. Your company did a very professional job.
There is another reason that both of us were so thrilled with the jewelry box and its four compartments. He always talks and jokes about how he places his relationships, responsibilities, hobbies and chores in separate sections in his mind so that he can deal with each one with total concentration and without conflict.
How appropriate that the men’s jewelry box comes with four compartments! We laughed so hard! Then he ceremoniously placed into the largest compartment a picture of me holding our daughter. Next, he took off his watch and tie clasp and placed both in the compartment off to the side. He set a small award he received for a recent entry in a carpentry contest in the next smallest section. Finally, he took a note out of his pocket reminding him to pick up tomatoes on the way home – which he forgot to do by the way –and, after folding it several times, he placed it in the last and smallest section.
Seriously though, your customer service from start to finish was absolutely wonderful. The jewelry box was wrapped beautifully. I could tell that my gift to my husband was packed with great care to prevent damage during shipping.
I have mentioned your website to friends and will continue to shop for personalized gifts at your online store. By the way, I really like how easy it is to shop on the site. Other gift sites are so cluttered with way too many items and the pictures are not high quality. I can tell you take as much care with the site as you do with your packaging and shipping.
Thank you Memorable Gifts!
