Ideas For Graduation Gifts

Finding a graduation gift is always going to be a tricky one. Do you get them something personal, a bottle of Champers, some jewellery. Decisions, decisions, eh?

Thankfully, we scoured the internet for all the best gift ideas, and put together a little guide to help you get over your buyers block. You don’t even have to spend a load of money, the sentiment is far more valuable. Help them celebrate their special day with graduation gifts for him and her. 


Gifts That Make Memories

Afternoon Tea

Afternoon Tea is a lovely little gift to remember. It’s a little classy opportunity to live life on the finer side of things. We’ll go for cake please and a glass of bubbly too. Because it’s 5 oclock somewhere right? It’s an experience that you’ll remember and a chance to catch up now you have nothing to worry about any more studying.

Wondering where to find an afternoon tea near you? Websites like Groupon or BuyAGift are perfect for planning an experience to remember.


Spa Day

A Spa Day is a perfect gift for someone who has had an incredibly stressful few years at Uni. Burnout has been on the cards for far too long, but they’ve finally made it. They’ve finished, and they want a chance to unwind. Who wouldn’t want a restorative day at a spa.

A lot of people think spa days are super pricey. You get treated like royalty for a day, it makes sense. The good news is, you can get some incredible deals and discounts on spa days with Groupon or BuyAGift again. Have a look and see what’s the nearest spa day for the person you’re gifting it to, and if you’re having trouble finding a bargain, consider sorting the results by lowest prices first.

Want to go all out? Get yourself in the number 1 friend spot by have a little afternoon tea AND a spa day. Sounds pretty perfect if you ask us!


A Trip Away

So you want to buy your friend a graduation gift, but you’ve just graduated too? And you want to get a treat too! Why not consider heading on a little weekend away? Tbh, what’s not to like? A chance to blow off some steam and travel a little when you graduate. Experiences and memories like these will be something you will always hold onto.

When trying to figure out how your sad looking bank balance will afford a getaway, and you begin your hunt for a bargain deal, check out our How To Travel on a Budget guide. Grab yourself a spur of the moment Lastminute.com deal, or a bargain Easyjet flight. If you have a lot of spare time on your hands, have a peek at Interrailing in Europe! If you really wanna keep the costs down, consider a little staycation. Find an Airbnb cottage somewhere remote, or consider an overnight trip to London.


Gifts That Bring A Smile

Personalised Photos & Prints

Personalised photo prints or photo frames at graduation are a super cute gift to remember the moment. They are unique and personal, and are a lovely little keepsake to treasure. Check out Etsy and Not on the High Street (pictured) for beautifully personalised printed.


Graduation Flowers

A nice bouquet of flowers is perfect for making someone feel loved at a time of huge achievements. Send your loved one your best wishes with a bouquet of graduation flowers. Check out Bloom and Wild or Prestige Flowers for ideas.


Personalised Stationary

I know what you’re thinking, why would someone want stationary after they have finally finished education. Personalised stationery is a perfect gift for that lucky student who already has a job lined up for after uni. Think about personalised pens, notebooks or a diary that they can take with them to work.

Pen Heaven has wonderfully beautiful metal pens which can be engraved with a personalised message or name, and a handful of other Graduation Gifts. Not on the Highstreet share a wide variety of notebooks and diaries that can be personalised.


A Graduation Teddy Bear

Go on, get sentimental. Get your favourite graduate a Graduation Teddy. They’re something to take back home with them after Uni is all done and dusted. Grab yours on Amazon or go all out with a Build a Bear!


A Gift of Giggles

So you want to get someone a graduation gift, but kind of want something a little less serious? Why not go for something different and get them a unique personalised Graduation Lego Statue of themselves!? Or a Yoda Graduation Mug. We don’t even really know what that has to do with anything at this point, but we want it.


Gifts To Eat & Drink

Champagne & Beers

Whatever the weather, champagne has never not been a good idea, and what a better time to celebrate than for your graduation. And for the lads out there who just can’t handle the bubbly, it’s alright, we got you covered with your Graduation Beers too. You can even get personalised bottles of champagne for that extra touch on the special moment! Have a look at the custom bottles of both champagne and beers at Not on the Highstreet or Menkind.


Sweet Treats

A diet of beans on toast and pasta has to be one of the saddest parts of uni. Why not introduce your newly graduated friend into the real world and gift a box of chocolates or a personalised cookie. Have a look through Hotel Chocolat’s Selection of Graduation Chocolates out Millie’s Cookie’s Giant Graduation Cookie, a Personalised Graduation Toblerone from Menkind, or even a Cadbury’s Chocolate Bouquet!
