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.

The Best Graduation Gift: Something Nobody Else Has

Do you have a friend or family member that is graduating from junior high, high school, college, or another educational program? If so, make the extra effort and get them a gift to show how proud you are. Saying congrats is one thing but actually making the effort to buy something thoughtful means a lot more.

When actually giving a graduation gift, think about a present that is unique and is something that nobody else has. This can be a rare gift or, what I suggest, is an engraved graduation gift. Not only are you giving a present, but you are giving a present that marks their accomplishment (graduating) in time.

My favorite graduation gifts include the following:
Curved Glass Engraved Picture Frame
Graduation Class Pen in Personalized Case
Personalized Silver Treasures Photo Album

Now the big question is: What is the coolest high school graduation gift and where to find it? The answer will vary depending on the recipient, but the same idea applies. Basically, your mission is to look throughout the internet and find a perfect gift that nobody else will have. The last thing you want is to purchase a gift that everyone else is getting. Not cool.

Also, another idea for a good gift is something that the high school graduate can use in the future. If they are aspiring to be a lawyer, get them something related to the legal field.

Tips for Buying Law School Graduate Presents

Graduating from law school is a big deal; a very big deal. Law school entails three solid years of reading, analyzing content, debates and tricky testing that can make or break you. If a friend or family member is graduating from law school, it’s truly something that should be commended.

Now, the question is: What’s the best way to show a law school graduate that you’re proud of their accomplishment? My suggestion is to give them a thoughtful, personalized present that will set that date/event in stone, and something that can actually be used in the future. Many times gifts are given, but are not useful and simply put aside. The goal is to select a gift that can be put to use.

I, personally, think personalized pens are an ideal gift for law school graduates. Lawyers use pens quite often and having a special pen that reminds oneself of an accomplishment is a useful inspirational tool. Plus, having a classy pen is much more professional in meetings as opposed to a conventional plastic ballpoint pen or pencil that will smudge.

I hope this article has helped and good luck selecting a law school graduate present!

Gift Ideas for Business School Graduates

Graduating from business school requires a lot of effort and, after graduating, all of this effort should be recognized. This recognition can come in many forms and this article will provide a few ideas on ways to celebrate graduation from a business school.

Many students attending business school are forced to leave their homes while in school. The goal is to attend the best school possible, which isn’t always close to home. This forces students to move away and causes a disconnect between friends and family. Yes, the internet helps, but only so much.

To help solidify relationships and show how proud you are, sending a gift to a distant friend or family member is ingenious. It shows that even though they live far away, and you cannot spend time with them in person, they are still important. The gift can range from something small like a card to an engraved leather desk set. The goal is to find something they love and can use on a regular basis and, in my opinion, a leather desk set is the ideal gift for a business school graduate.

Additionally, personalized coffee mugs are funny, useful gifts for business school graduates. Why funny? Well, they imply now that business school is over, it’s time to enter the real world and have a full-time job that requires waking up early and working long hours. This is where coffee comes in.

I hope this article has been helpful and congrats to all of you business school graduates!
