As a long-kept tradition, many people use engraved, printed, or embroidered items to commemorate special events in their lives. For your grad's big day, whether from high school or college, get them a gift that will remind them of the sense of accomplishment they felt on that big day. This will also memorialize the start of a new chapter in their lives. What is the perfect gift for your graduate?
How sentimental of a person, is your recipient? Some graduates are just happy to have that part of their lives over and done with, and if that's the case, you might want to get them something practical. Some people like to get their grads engraved mementos as a fun reminder of their big day. Rings and keychains are also a great option.
If you do have a recipient that enjoys keepsakes, a personalized graduation bear is sure to go over well! Choose a bear that represents the student's school colors or perhaps their favorite color, for a long lasting gift to display on a shelf or desk for years to come. You can also have photos of all the fun memories from school printed at a very inexpensive cost at your local department store and put them into a themed photo album. Everyone likes to look back on the good times, even when they're in a new place in their lives, and these are items they'll keep and display forever.
Some parents like to go all-out and get their graduates something expensive. Many music player manufacturers do engraving on the backs of the devices they sell for a small cost – or sometimes, even free. For extra school spirit, present the electronic along with the specially chosen graduation teddy bear! Or perhaps you're getting them a laptop as they move on to their next stage of schooling or work; these can always be engraved as well.
