Graduation is a memorable and special event for any student — so it makes sense to mark the occasion with a suitable gift. However, it’s easy to get a bit lost when you start looking for perfect graduation gift ideas. Every graduate is different, so there’s that challenge, but the key thing is finding a gift that feels special and ensures that they remember such an important day for years to come.
Although the restrictions on events such as graduations have improved significantly and eased compared to the earlier days of the global pandemic, life is yet to return to normal. While many students will get the full graduation experience, Covid-19 may well throw a spanner in the works for many Universities and require digital graduations or some with reduced numbers. As you can imagine, being able to attend graduation amidst a particularly challenging time is a fantastic reason to celebrate their hard work and enjoy the experience with their friends and family.
The perfect graduation gift provides graduates with a reminder of this special day, but finding something suitable can be a daunting task. So, we have put together some perfect graduation gift ideas to help!
A graduation certificate is a much sought after and prized possession of any student, and a beautiful certificate frame is a perfect way to showcase such a fantastic achievement. So it’s difficult to see why a certificate frame is among the most popular graduation gift ideas. Traditional frames allow graduates to display their certificate (and their hard work) at home, workspace or quite often, it’ll find a home at their proud parent’s house. With our extensive range of mount board colours, you can opt to match the university or choose a tone that’s preferred by the graduation, a favourite colour maybe.
The traditional veneer frame with a classic gold line inside is the perfect aesthetic and a touch of class for any professional office or workspace. The traditional frame is also available in a dual certificate and photo frame, the ideal combo to remember such a special day. After all, a picture is worth a thousand words.
If you’re looking for something a bit more contemporary, our modern frames could be a perfect choice. With a clean black finish, our modern wooden frames suit the surroundings of any modern home or office. Much like our traditional frames, modern frames feature a sturdy build and glass on the front, offering protection without sacrificing visual appeal or practicality. Again, like our traditional frame, our modern frame is also available in a dual certificate and photo frame.
Graduate Certificate Folder
A graduation certificate is a prized possession for many graduates and their loved ones, which needs to be looked after. Certificates can easily be lost, damaged, or ruined — especially when moving house or redecorating. So, it’s essential to protect the certificate and preserve it from other aspects such as sun damage. You achieve this with our graduate certificate folders, which are available in a range of colours, and the luxury leatherette finish will ensure your certificate remains in pristine condition. These folders provide a safe storage solution and look very professional when presenting your graduation certificate at job interviews.
The graduate certificate folder is also customisable when bought in bulk.
Graduate Diploma Tube
Another fantastic storage solution for graduation certificates is a graduate diploma tube. This small tube allows graduates to store and preserve their certificates in a more unique, refreshing way. As perfect graduation gift ideas go, certificate tubes are always a great choice as they’re both practical and look great, making them an excellent accessory for a graduation photo. Whether you’re looking for a nice and simple way to store your certificate at home or want to gift someone with a beautiful keepsake for a momentous occasion, look no further than our graduate diploma tubes which have an excellent deluxe leatherette finish.
Do you have a group of friends who want to purchase tubes in bulk? (more than ten). Get in touch to discuss your requirements, and we can look into personalising them!
