Graduation is an important milestone that deserves a special celebration, even if official ceremony plans might be less than ideal this year. Whether the graduate in your life is making the big leap to kindergarten or earning their high school diploma, you want to show them just how proud you are. Ace your search for the perfect gift with ideas for every budget.
Gifts that are Fun and Educational
Choose a gift that’s equal parts fun and educational for preschoolers or kindergarteners. Let their imagination run wild with a beloved children’s book or encourage their inner artist to shine with tools for painting, drawing, or sketching. If they’re forever curious, a board game or puzzle will keep them happy and entertained.
Gifts that make Memories and spread Joy
Your middle school graduate is ready to make their own memories. An instant camera lets them cherish the polaroids in a scrapbook or decorate their future locker door. For the video game lover, level up their collection so they can play solo or go head-to-head with friends.
Gifts that Inspire and Encourage
A practical present for your high school graduate will prepare them for the next stage of their life. An Instant Pot is a guaranteed hit for easy and delicious meals, while a cookbook provides plenty of recipe ideas for meal planning. A daily planner or a smartwatch will keep them on track with their schedule—and their goals. For a thoughtful keepsake, jewelry like a birthstone necklace or a charm bracelet is sure to touch the heart.
Gifts that set them up for Success
If they’re getting ready to hit the job market, they’re sure to appreciate a functional gift: a tech upgrade in the form of a smartphone or laptop, an insulated mug to keep their beverage hot or cold, a classic tote bag, or an elegant laptop case to hold all their essentials or a wallet that’ll last for years to come. If your recent grad plans to travel in the future, a weekender bag or a passport holder will satiate their wanderlust until they can freely travel again.
Gifts that give teachers meaningful thanks
Let’s not forget about the dedicated teachers who work tirelessly to educate their students. After a long, unprecedented year, scented candles and aromatherapy kits encourage rest and relaxation. You can also upgrade their work station for the new school year with a classic Moleskine notebook or fun and unique stationery.
Gifts that offer endless options
Gift cards are a great idea if you’d rather let your graduate choose exactly what they want. Group gift cards are also available for parents and students to show teachers their appreciation. Our eGift Cards can even be personalized with a special photo or video message.
