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 has plenty of graduation gift ideas.
After all of that hard work and brain power, they deserve something to celebrate their achievement. We’ve got graduation gifts 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 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.
Want to cheers your study star with a celebratory drink? Before you pop a bottle of Prosecco to celebrate all their hard work, consider taking your toast to the next level with an appropriately boozy gift. Our collection of graduation presents has loads of personalised wine, beer and whisky gifts that are 100% fun but also something they’ll treasure for years to come. Pour their favourite tipple into a personalised Champagne flute, whisky tumbler or beer tankard or present it in a custom engraved keepsake box.
