Writing pages and pages of notes, caffeinating through late-night study sessions, staying awake in lectures about trigonometry… Getting to graduation isn’t easy, so when it comes time to throw the cap, it’s an occasion worth celebrating! But what to get your new graduate? Whether they’ve made it through high school or earned their master’s degree, our curated collection of graduation gifts has plenty to choose from.
There’s no denying that graduating from university or some other educational facility is quite an achievement. It’s also one that should get celebrated, of course, and one way to do that is by presenting your friend or loved one with a gift to show you’re proud of them.
After all of that hard work and brain power, they deserve something to celebrate their achievement. At Hardtofind, we’ve got the best selection of graduation gifts Australia-wide that we know you’ll love, and each one will both motivate and inspire.
We’ve got graduation gift ideas ranging from the personalised keepsake kind to the ‘set off on the right foot to the world of work’ kind, with some fun, quirky options in the mix as well. So forget about run-of-the-mill graduation presents and choose something unique and extra special for your favourite clever clog.
If you want to find the best graduation gifts but you’re not sure which ones would be perfect for your intended recipient, the following guide should help.
If your new graduate is heading off to their first job, consider something they can take with them on the journey. A personalised antique-style leather desk set will make their new cubicle feel less entry-level-assistant, more future-CEO, while a profesh-looking leather laptop bag will carry everything they need on the commute in executive style (cue: serious colleague envy!).
If your high-school grad is heading off to university, think more sleek and practical: a pair of wireless headphones to help them get into the zone on campus, a backpack with a tech sleeve for their laptop (and plenty of room for snacks to fuel their study) or a personalised notebook to kick off this fresh page of their learning life.
Maybe your graduate is putting down the pencils and heading off on a gap year. A personalised compass engraved with your own special message is a keepsake they can carry with them on their travels – and it might come in useful when Google Maps is out of range. Or get them something a little bit luxe for the trip (it’ll be appreciated if they’re not exactly travelling five-star), like a leather duffle bag, monogrammed with their initials, a carry-on-friendly tech case for all their gadgets and cords, or a personalised passport holder.
Still stuck or ideas? Here are a few more useful tips for finding the best graduation gift ideas.
It sounds simple, but a list of things they like will help you narrow down the options. For example, is the grad into music, drinking coffee or getting zen with mood lighting and candles?
A graduation gift that makes them laugh will be one to remember. Check out our Quirky Gifts department for some fun ideas, such as a golf ball ice ball or a floating rainbow pool bar.
We’re talking personalised notebooks, monthly planners, diaries and journals - basically anything that helps them stay organised!
