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.

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

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.

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.

Write letters to graduates with these 5 writing tips

Writing congratulatory letters to graduates is easy with these five writing tips from www.giftsin24.com

1. Acknowledge their achievement.

In the first line or two, acknowledge the graduate’s accomplishment.

“After four years of hard work, you’ve done it! Congratulations on graduating!”

2. Remember their past. 

The second sentence could reference a memory you have of the graduate in younger days or, if it’s an adult who has returned to school, reference a memory of the adult’s previous career or life stage, such as stay-at-home mommyhood.

“I remember when you were a tot building block castles and looking up with wonder at the church tower.”

3. Link back to their effort

If you can, in the next sentence, link the memory back to the graduate’s accomplishment.

“And now you have completed your degree in design!”

4. Project forward to their future

Next, you can predict or hope for their future success. Or, give the graduate a well-selected piece of advice.

“You obviously have many skills and talents, and I hope that you are able to find fulfilling work that also pays the bills.”

5. Finish with love

Close with a heartfelt statement of your admiration or love.

“I love you and wish you the best in life, always!”
