Celebrate Your Teen’s Graduation

We’re entering the month of graduations. Celebrate the graduate in your life this year. Whether your teen is graduating high school and moving off to college or a good friend is finishing college, every graduation is an exciting event.

Graduation marks the end of one phase and the beginning of a new one. Honor the graduate’s hard work and dedication and help them get ready for the future by picking out a thoughtful gift. We put together a list of interesting graduation gifts to help you find the right one.

1. Money!

You remember finishing school and thinking about the future… The first thing on your wish list was probably cash. Things haven’t changed much! Show your graduate you understand by giving cash or gift cards. Make a gift of money fun by wrapping it in an interesting way. Or, purchase gift cards with a theme. Find a gift card for a clothing store or a household store nearby so they can get ready for a dorm or new apartment.

2. Jewelry

Graduation is special- show them by finding a piece of jewelry. Guys will love a nice watch and girls will be excited about a pair of earrings or a necklace. You don’t have to get the most extravagant piece of jewelry to show them you are proud, just find something they will like.

3. Trip

High school or college graduation is a great time to take a trip. Offer to pay for the graduate’s trip to either a road trip destination or a bigger vacation spot. If your teen is graduating, it might be nice to take a family vacation as a celebration.

4. Monogrammed gifts

Any graduating woman would appreciate a monogrammed makeup bag or phone case. You can find just about anything and have it customized with a monogram. Think about her sense of style and fashion, and find something she can use a lot, like a tote bag, or something fun, like a monogrammed necklace.

5. Photo Album

Photo albums are easier than ever to make. Pop online and find a photo service. Upload your photos and create a custom photo album. You can make picture mugs, blankets and tons of other gifts.
