Graduation is a huge milestone in a persons’ life; perhaps one of the biggest. The two things that a fresh graduate wants the most are a vacation and a job. Chances are you probably won’t be gifting either of these things, so you are left to go through gift catalogues to find the perfect graduation present. Here a couple gift ideas that should help narrow down the choice:
– Gadgets: New graduates are well aware of technological developments and love to have the latest gadgets. Few things bring as much joy to young people as the gift of technology. If you are aware of something particular that they want, that will make your shopping task even easier. The gift will be both, functional and thoughtful. Just be forewarned that gadgets do not usually come at the cheap end.
– Crystal Award: A gift for all budgets is some sort of a personalized award. Traditionally, personalized gifts involved coffee mugs, t-shirts, mouse pads and photo frames; all well-meaning, but very tacky to be considered as graduation gifts. A crystal award or trophy makes a much more elegant and sophisticated statement.
You can have the crystal award etched with a personal message, and even incorporate a clock or photo frame into it. You can find many retailers offering great deals on crystal products around graduation time, but consider online retail stores for best prices and a wide collection to choose from.
