Personalized Graduate Gifts

A graduation is a momentous occasion in the life of a young man and woman and his/her family, but selecting an appropriate gift for the honoree can be difficult. Money is always appreciated, but if you're hoping to present the graduate with something a bit more personal, a custom personalized gift may be exactly what you seek.

Many personalized gifts for graduation are suitable for both high school and college graduations, including presents for those who are receiving advanced degrees. Many of these gifts will help the graduate as they make their way into the world.

For example, graduates entering the business world may enjoy a personalized pen set, a smart leather wallet or money clip, a manicure kit or shoe shine kit, or a personalized chrome business card holder or calculator. All of these personalized graduation gifts will be put to good use and the recipient will remember your kind gift each time he/she uses it.

For the graduate on the go, consider a personalized duffel bag or some other piece of travel gear - such as a travel kit or overnight bag - that they can use on their next trip and enjoy for years to come.

Other suitable personalized graduation gifts include jewelry such as lockets, bracelets, pocket watches, or cufflinks, often engraved with the recipient's initials. Other presents to consider are mugs and glassware, a personalized frame for that special graduation photo, or beautiful stainless steel or silver-plated wine-related items for the graduate who enjoys a good bottle of the best vintage.
