10 Graduation Gifts That EVERY Student Will Love… Especially The Last One!

Graduation season is here and once again the country is filled with gleeful young adults ready to start the next chapter in their lives.

They’ve spent the last few years stressing over exams, papers, and presentations all for this moment. They’ve dreamt of walking that stage and bidding good riddance so many times that it almost feels unreal that it’s finally coming true.

Graduating college is a huge milestone in a person’s life, it’s a memory that will never fade. So as a friend or family member of these anxious graduates, what do you gift them?

If you’re freaking out because you didn’t plan anything ahead of time, we’ve got you covered! Just below, we’ve compiled some great DIY gifts you can create in a short amount of time and on a budget.

#1. This is an early gift idea: make a countdown candle so they can countdown the days until their college life has finally come to an end.

#2. Make a time capsule so your graduate can remember the best days of this chapter in their life.

They can fill it up with their favorite memories before they bury it somewhere.

#3. Make a customized frame for the new graduate that includes a section to display their tassel.

This way they don’t have to store it away in a box that’ll never see daylight.

#4. For the wanderlust graduate, gift them with a globe that displays an inspirational quote.

This will be great decoration for the graduate’s new first independent home.

#5. Make a little spa trio (scrub, cream, and soak) for your graduate as they will need a lot of winding down time after they’re done with finals and everything else.

#6. Now that it’s time for your graduate to enter the working field, it’s time to get her/him organized for networking.

Help them do that by creating a business card holder for their new office.

#7. Folding bills into origami grad caps is a unique and creative way to gift a graduate money.

Attach different colored tassels to each one so they pop out more!

#8. Now that they’re finally done with the big textbooks they’re never going to use again, turn one of them into a safe they can hide items inside of.
