Throughout our lives, there are certain moments that stand out more than others – moments and events that are ingrained in our minds forever. Graduation is one such emotionally charged, stimulating event because it celebrates a moment of great achievement that is the result of a lot of hard work and determination. It is an indicator of bigger and better things to come, and it provides the opportunity to consider new possibilities and new horizons. It’s always a good idea to celebrate by offering a gift of some sort, but what if you don’t know what kind of gift to buy? Consider some of these graduation gift ideas.
Often, when we hear the word “graduation,” we automatically think of high school. However, graduates come in all shapes and sizes. For example, my youngest just graduated from preschool, and her sister graduated from kindergarten last school year. From the smallest preschool graduate to the largest university or technical college graduate, their accomplishment deserves to be acknowledged.
Of course, we always want to be there to share the graduation experience with our loved ones and friends. However, many times this is simply not possible. You can’t always be there physically, but you can always shop online for the perfect gift to send your friend or loved one to help them celebrate their special day. La Bella Baskets & Gifts has a variety of fantastically unique graduation gift ideas to choose from so you can express your love and pride in the graduate’s achievement.
For example, you could send a beautiful flower bouquet, or a fresh flower arrangement.
The problem with fresh flowers, though, is that they die. La Bella’s thought of that too. They’ve just recently come out with a line of scented wax roses in a variety of colors and scents. Plus, the roses come with a piece of surprise jewelry (you can choose either earrings, a ring, a necklace, or a bracelet) valued between $10 and $7500. So far, this has proven to be one of the most popular graduation gift ideas for girls who are graduating from high school.
If sending flowers does not seem to fit (some guys, after all, don’t appreciate flowers very much), then why not try sending a unique gift basket? Gift baskets can cater to one of their personal interests, like this one for the sports enthusiast.
For the younger graduate in your life, you can send this fun basket that includes a teddy bear and bubbles. I sent one of these to my five-year-old, and she absolutely loved it!
One thing to remember, though – especially when you’re ordering gift baskets that sometimes require extra processing and shipping time – is that you need to allow yourself plenty of time to find the perfect gift. Try to keep track of important days on a monthly calendar – or set up Google reminders, like I do. Those things are really nice because you can set them up to remind you of upcoming events weeks – and sometimes even months – ahead of time. I love that! If you have a lot going on in your life (and if you have kids like I do, I know you have a lot on your plate), you need a little help from time to time keeping track of the important occasions for which you might need to buy a gift. You wouldn’t want to not give anything, and I know your intended gift recipient wouldn’t be too thrilled.
