Graduation Gift Ideas

Laura, a longtime fan of Pear Tree Greetings, shares her experiences with us as she
prepares for her oldest child to graduate from high school.

Custom Photo Graduation Announcements -- Taking Notes College Graduation Invitations -- Senior Swirls
As graduation invitations are trickling in, I find myself trying to think of meaningful gifts (along with the requisite check donation) for the graduates closest to our family. Gifts from the heart often mean homemade, time-consuming and in some cases, expensive offerings, and with my own child’s graduation looming, I don’t have too much of either. But thinking creatively (and shamelessly stealing other mom’s ideas), I have a few graduation gift ideas for some special graduates:
Personalized Thank You Cards -- Chic ChevronNote Cards -- Gentleman's Style

  • Personalized stationery and note cards
  • School supplies (binders, lined paper, pens/pencils)
  • Personalized leather portfolio/binder
  • Monogrammed anything with their initials or class year (paperweights, photo frames, pencil and pen gift set, etc)
  • Lounge wear (you know they’ll use it)
  • Gift cards to national chain restaurants or clothing stores
  • College Survival Guide for Freshman (at your local bookstore) or other books that provide life lessons
  • Laptop bag
  • Care package (array of candy, comfy blanket, lounge wear)
  • Poetry or words of inspiration
  • Gift certificate to dinner and a movie
  • Laundry bag
  • Alarm clock
  • Charging station for iPod and phone
  • USB hub
  • Duffel bag or weekend get-away bag
  • Personalized mouse pad
  • Spa and shower set
