Our Best 3 Gift Ideas for a New Grad

A newly minted diploma is cause for celebration. The new graduate is jubilant. Parents are beaming like the sun with pride. The party is planned. You’ve dug out your favorite summer outfit and are ready to fête the student of honor and his or her new achievement.

We’ve gathered our 3 favorite gifts we think no new graduate can do without.

Highland Card from Giftsin24.com ships in 24 hours.

Any new graduate would love the Highland Card from Giftsin24. Customize it with a lettering style, ink color and optional border or hand-inserted envelope lining.

Personalized Stationery

Nothing says “grown up” more than having your own personalized stationery. Particularly for a college grad looking for a new job, think of all those circumstances where personalized stationery will really come in handy, from the interview thank you to keeping key professional connections alive.

Monograms, names, embossed, raised ink, the possibilities are endless, but we particularly like the classic good looks of the new Highland Card. Because young people are so mobile these days, skip the optional return address. But a border or envelope lining or even 100% cotton paper could be very, very nice.

 

 

 

Treasured Moment Picture Frame from Giftsin24.com ships in 24 hours.

Personalize the Treasure Moment Picture Frame and include a favorite photograph from the graduate’s school years.

Picture Frame

A new graduate probably has at least several cherished high school or college photographs. A special prom date. Earning straight A’s.  Hanging out with your best buddies. Scoring the winning touch down. Giving a speech. Crossing a finish line. All of these moments and more make up the memories of our school years.

We like the Treasured Moment Picture Frame, but we offer frames with other motifs that could work just as beautifully. You can personalize it with the graduate’s name, school, graduation date, nickname, small caption, or any other short message.

 

 

Senior Class Keepsake Ornament for the graduate from giftsin24 ships in 24 hours.

Personalize the Senior Class Keepsake Ornament to use as a gift, gift tag or table place marker.

Every year, we open our box of Christmas ornaments to discover a treasure trove of memories, from a birth to family vacations, the school years and much more. Giftsin24 is proud to offer personalized ornaments that mark important occasions. These engraved glass ornaments also can be used as gift tags, table place markers, party favors and more.

For graduates, we love the Senior Class Keepsake Ornament. It comes in clear or red glass and includes space for the graduate’s name. Presented with a silver ribbon in a velvet pouch, the ornament will serve as a proud reminder of the graduate’s achievement for years to come.

Fill our personalized mason jars with treats to create cute party favors or gifts.

Sometimes giving is the best present. The feedback and love you get back can catapult your week from ho-hum to spectacularly happy.

Like when Lupe and Michaela, our wonderful customer service representatives, decided to thank a group of people by personalizing our Desmond Mason Jars, filling them with candy and sending them off as a “surprise.”

As you can see, they turned out really cute.

“We brainstormed some of our favorite sayings and played around with the different lettering styles to find combinations we liked,” says Michaela.

“The fabric and gift tags were on sale at our local craft store. It was really easy, affordable, and fun to put everything together,” says Lupe.

And when their friends opened the package? They sent a ton of warm fuzzies back to Lupe and Michaela.

“We really made their day. They were super excited to receive our surprise gifts,” says Michaela.

Writing Tip: Affect vs. Effect

Affect versus effect: what's the differenceWhat’s the difference between the words “Affect” and “Effect”? Have you ever scurried to the dictionary to find out while writing a letter, email, resume, job interview thank you, etc.?

The Answer Is…

“Affect” is generally used as a verb: it means to influence or have an impact on, or to move, touch or make an impression on.

“Going without my morning cup of coffee affects my energy level for the rest of the day.”

“That compelling movie really affected me.”

On the other hand, we usually use the word “Effect”as a noun: it means a consequence or result of some cause.

“Your effect on me is electric.”

The upshot? When pondering which word to use — Affect or Effect — try to remember this nmemonic:

The cause creates THE E-ffect.

Remember that long E sound of the, leading into the long E sound of effect. “Effect” is a noun.

And then from there, you can remember that “Affect” is a verb.

Editor’s Note: Of course, when we’re talking grammar, there are always exceptions to the rules.  We list them here only because they’re interesting, but you don’t need to remember these, because they are very rarely used. There are some very rare occasions when we use “Affect” as a noun, but it is usually in the jargon/language of psychology and not in general conversation.  By the same token, you can sometimes use “Effect” as a verb, but it can sound stilted and not very conversational, so we usually avoid this use: “We effected change by following five key steps.”
