Grad Gift Guide: The Perfect Graduation Gift Ideas For Your Graduate!

verbal gold blog graduation gift guide

One of the biggest milestones in our lifetime is graduating! The feeling of such a big accomplishment is thrilling and everyone who supports a graduate wants to let them know how proud they are. What can you buy a graduate to show your pride?! Who better than the #VGBsquad to guide you in this special decision. We just had a ton of our girls graduate and we couldn’t be more proud!

Not only that, I have an overwhelming sense of pride since by boyfriend graduated yesterday with his Bachelor’s Degree in Management. I really wanted to showcase that pride with a memory and some words of inspiration so start off your gift giving with a card. Don’t just sign the card, dig deep. Tell your graduate how proud you are of them and why you are proud of them. After you express your heartfelt best wishes, comb through these ideas and find the perfect gift for your graduate!

I found the perrrrrfect grad gift for him and I can’t wait to share it with y’all! We all know wood watches are all the rage right now but I’ve never found one I was really drawn to until now! I found Original Grain on Instagram and immediately fell in love…and so did he! These watches make the perfect gift! They are a mix of steel and wood.  I was fond of the whiskey barrel watch but there are so many to choose from, so you can find one that fits your guys style. They even have stadium watches coming out that blow my mind. They are so unique!  Use code 2017GRAD for 15% off your order!

Do you live far away and can’t make graduation? Try sending the Yay You gift box from Packed Party! It’s a party in a box and doesn’t get much better than that.

The best part of life is about celebrating special moments. Of course it isn’t about presents, but that sure does help celebrate a fun occasion and adds a memory to reflect back on a cherished time in your life.

I remember when I graduated college, my parents gave me an aqua ring with diamonds and I still wear it almost every single day. I can look down at my hand and think of my accomplishment, the pride I gave my family, and remember how much it meant to me and everyone who supports me. It was an unforgettable day and that gift really set it off! Keep in mind, I still have the card they gave me too which means more to me than anything…their heartfelt words. So whether it is your boyfriend, friend, sister, brother, mom, dad, cousin, son, or daughter, make it special and memorable.
