Graduation How did that come around so quickly?
My eldest son has finished his degree and is graduating in a couple of months. Scary times but exciting as he embarks on the next chapter of his life.
This has, of course, sent me into panic mode, thinking about what I am going to wear to his graduation and also about a suitable gift for this momentous occasion.
Luckily there are lots of amazing ideas out there and I have been scouring the internet for inspiration and I thought I would share some of the best finds.
First up, choosing the right card is so much easier these days as there are great ranges of cards available. I particularly like the range from Hallmark.
Not On The High Street have some really great ideas to suit every budget. These are a few of my favourites.
‘Amazing Things’ Star Keyring £10
Personalised Graduation Print With 17 Colour Options £22
Personalised ‘Smarty Pants’ Chocolate Bar £6.50
Find Me A Gift, do just that, whatever the occasion, so they were top of my list of sites to check out on my search for the perfect graduation gift idea. They certainly didn’t disappoint with some really unique gift ideas. This is my top five.
Graduation Frame 7″ x 5″ £11.99
Personalised Graduation Mug £9.99
Congratulations Stemless Wine Glass With Crown £8.99
Same Moon Around The World Love Token £27.49
Chocolate Sweet Tree Mixed Truffles £29.99
The end of a degree course is definitely a cause for a big celebration and what better way to drink champers than in these amazing VonShef Brushed Gold Champagne Flutes from Domu. Stylish and shatterproof as they are made from high-quality stainless steel with a gold brushed finish.
Getting Personal is another of my go-to sites for gift ideas and they have a lovely range of graduation gifts. The Luxury Personalised Champagne -Well Done You’ve Graduated (priced from £34.99) would be the perfect accompaniment to the gorgeous Domu glasses.
Alternatively, if you are looking for a keepsake why not choose the Personalised Glass Token (£14.99) or the Personalised Star of Fame Print (£17.99).
If you want a memento of the big day, why not invest in this Black Graduation Album with Tassel for The Gift Experience as a memento of the ceremony and celebrations.
The new graduate will need somewhere to keep the all-important certificate and I love this Personalised Graduation Certificate Holder from Prezzy Box.
I love, love love this personalised LEGO Graduation Frame from Etsy (£29.99), perfect for those big kids who still love LEGO.
Finally, I absolutely love this Swarovski Kris Bear Graduation Figurine. At £69.99 it is a bit more of an investment but it is such a lovely memento of the big occasion. This is available at The Jewel Hut.
