Best Graduation Gifts – Episode 82

Gifts Graduates Really WantLet’s Talk About The Best Graduation Gifts that Teens Really Want!

With five children and a group of friends with many children I’ve participated in my fair share of graduation celebrations in recent years. However, it was after really thinking about my own graduation and those of my children that I realized what children really desire is not what they receive. In this podcast, Felice shares her ideas of what a graduation celebration should be and ways you can making lasting memories with your own special graduates.

 

Show Notes – Best Graduation Gifts 

A study by Hallmark reveals:

  • 95 percent give money for gifts for graduation from high school or college
    • $25 is about average amount spent for a close friend (or child of a close friend)
    • 67 percent believe that $50 or more is appropriate for a close relative
    • $20 is the average for a not-so-close friend
    • And many would give no gift to a not-so-close friend, but they might send a card.

Some of the Best Graduation Gift Ideas:

  1. A book where the child can begin their memoirs – one leather bound book entitled: “My Life Story Thus Far”
  2. Jewelry
    1. Necklace, bracelet, earings
    2. Watch
  3. Money Clip Holders
  4. Posters with great sayings on it.
  5. Personalized gifts
    1. Personalized wooden box
    2. Personalized jewelry – necklace/ ring/ braclet
    3. Mugs, glasses
    4. Candy wrappers

    7. Picture frames
    8. Baseball bats

  3. A Bible with their name engraved – if they don’t already have one.
  4. Popular gifts but they also become dust collectors
    1. Paperweights
    2. glass shadow boxes – eleant glass boxes with your grads name so they can store and see their special treasures
    3. a globe that is made of cork with pushpins to mark the countries visited
    4. The year with a spot in the 0 for their picture
