Graduation Gifts

Contributor post by Megha of bytheartbug

Here are some wonderful  “Graduation Gift” ideas.

I don’t have anything that is specifically for graduations, but I do have items that can be given for graduations, such as this pen which is based on my shop logo.

The actual logo is an original collage piece, one of the first ones that I did and one of the few early ones I’ve kept lol. The collage is in my favorite colors, and shows a Victorian woman who thinks it’s time for a change. I’ve never listed the actual collage for sale in the shop – maybe I should.

Anyway, I decided to have the pens made as a try-out in the shop and much to my surprise most of those I ordered have sold. I also gave a bunch as Christmas gifts to friends and family.

I’ve no specific graduation present, unless you want to give a personalized portrait or a wreath.

But I created graduation favors.

In Italy, on this occasion, we generally use red color and little decors ( a ladybug or an owl ).

We believe they are lucky charms.

Inside my bag I can put confetti or some scented pot-pourri

I received a request for a graduation card for a very special young lady that will be graduating from high school. I created a bold and contemporary card that would make a lovely keepsake with the year of graduation.

I had an Aunt who lived in Philadelphia when I was young. Living in Baltimore, we didn’t get to see her much, so her visits were special, like when she came down to see us when I graduated. She gave me a charm bracelet as a graduation gift. I still have it. That inspired me to create this special “Graduation” charm bracelet.

Beautiful rainbow colors merge into one another in this scented rainbow square chunk pillar candle. This candle is made in a 3 pour process, and has a core candle with the rainbow chunks set around it. This process creates a better quality, longer burning candle. Not sure of the total burning time, but I still have one that I light from time to time and its been with me for 11 yrs! Colors will vary slightly as each candle is hand made. Shown here unwrapped, it will come to you, wrapped in cello and tied with raffia/hemp cord.
This gorgeous rainbow candle would make a wonderful unity candle for a wedding, a great gift for a friend or loved one, a thoughtful graduation gift or a beautiful sentiment for a memorial service.
Chakra is the Sanskrit word for wheel. There are seven chakras in the body, located in a straight line with your spine; this line runs down the center of your body, from the top of your head to the base of your spine. Each chakra is an energy center and is represented with its unique color. Color meditation involves focusing on each of your chakras and their color vibration in order to bring about balance in your mind and body; promoting healing and peace of mind. (Each of the chakras relates to the elements of Earth, air fire water, ether, spiritual awakening and enlightenment.

These cute little scrapbooks make a perfect gift for the graduate. All of the hard work has been done. You only need to add photos and you’ll have a special keepsake to remember your accomplishment. They’re also a great way to display photos as graduation open houses/parties.

I love giving a vintage gift to grads. Vintage is often unique, special and memorable. These heavy cast iron bookends that were made decades ago would make a wonderful and unusual gift for someone heading off to college. I can almost guarantee that no other student will have these cool gold bronze bookends in their dorm room! You can add a clever note with them e.g. “Best wishes as you sail off on a new adventure.”
