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.
Something small, soft, and memorable was my inspiration for making this cute little owl.
A special ring, it can be the perfect gift for a graduation with a feather imprint and a beautiful emerald green color, that can inspire happy, light times ahead.
This ring be worn as a statement piece with long skirts or dresses for a bohemian look at the beach or any other holiday destination.
School is about more than just going to class. Commemorate your home, college town, or spring break memories with customized map art.
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.
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.
I love this quote, and I think it’s the perfect gift for a recent graduate as getting your way through those finally days can feel like a real push!
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.”
