Other | Graduation Gift Ideas For Her

Graduation season is upon us and whilst I have never been to university, the idea of receiving a graduation present as a "well done" for 3/4 years of hard work is somewhat appealing. My sister is graduating in the Summer but what on earth do you give as a graduation present? I have asked so many people what sort of gifts they have given their graduating loved ones and I was somewhat taken aback. Designer handbags, Tiffany jewellery, Christian Louboutin shoes, a car... So that £10 book voucher I was planning on giving my sister perhaps won't cut it after all!

If my sister is expecting a car then I'm afraid her hopes will be dashed, as are the £560 Jimmy Choos she keeps sending me photos of but what are some reasonable graduation gifts? I firmly believe that ladies perfume and a nice piece of jewellery is a great place to start. Why? Because those are the gifts we never buy ourselves. 

I thought I would put together two different graduation gift ideas, one high end and one somewhat more reasonable. I think one of the reason why high end graduation gifts are so popular is because it is a gift that the whole family puts towards. It's not just one singular present from one person, it is a special gift - something to keep and to cherish. Although I do still think a car is pretty 'out there'!

Before my sister informed me she wanted a pair of Jimmy Choos as a graduation gift, she declared she wanted a Mont Blanc Fountain pen. Fair enough me and my family thought, sure, we can get you a nice pen to take to your first post-grad job with...That was until we saw the cost of them. I firmly believe you get what you pay for but wow, £500 for a pen seems rather extravagant so we quickly diminished that idea! This Tiffany & Co Pen is still pricier than a biro but it is still something to cherish and to keep hold of without being gut-wrenchingly expensive. I absolutely love all of the jewellery above, especially the large white pearl earrings and the Monica Vinader bracelet which you can get engraved with a small message of your choice. I love the idea of personalised gifts and I think a personalised piece of jewellery is faultless.

I know the above items seem rather extravagant and pricey but a graduation present seems to be a gift from a whole family to a person rather than gifts from individuals which is why I have included some rather lovely but expensive gifts. I absolutely love the Dior Tribales Earrings and if I were to graduate then I would be absolutely delighted to receive these on my special day. You only graduate once so it is nice to gift something that someone can keep and cherish.

Are you graduating this year? What would you like to receive as a graduation gift?

  2. Lovely picks, it is funny because I graduated in France and, over there, it isn't a big deal at all in the sense that we don't get gifts, so some of those gifts does sound very extravagant to me indeed! Yet, at the same time, I understand the gesture as for most students it also means having a first job!

  3. I think a nice simple piece of jewelry is always a nice and timeless gift. Something she can keep forever. I didn't get any gift for my graduation: my parents never believed in rewarding me for something that's nothing less than my own obligation! :)
