Congratulations to the Class of 2017! It’s been a long, hard road, full of late nights, broken No. 2 pencils and heavy book bags, but the graduate in your life is finally about to walk across that stage for the big payoff. And you couldn’t be prouder!
Graduation is a special time, not only for the men and women of the hour, but for the friends and family that have supported them in following their dreams. Now, it’s time to cue up “Pomp and Circumstance” and get ready to party!
If you’re looking to give your graduate more than just a pat on the back, I’ve created a list of my favorite graduation gifts from The Bradford Exchange Online that they’re sure to cherish for years to come.
Scroll down to see my top picks:
Graduation Gifts for Her
Here’s a charming way to say “congrats!” This graduation charm bracelet features the graduate’s name engraved on one charm and their year of commencement on the other, personalized for FREE. A gift box is included with all of our jewelry designs as well!
True fans keep their school pride close to their heart forever — I know I do! This fan-tastic pendant shares spirit with the official team logo, team-color Swarovski crystals and engraving on the back. Not their school? Visit our site to see all of our college team memorabilia.
Put a song in their heart with this personalized music box, featuring their name and class year on the lid, along with an encouraging sentiment. It includes a poem card as well to further inspire them. So sweet!
I love this bracelet for daughters, because it’s a fashionable way to celebrate her faith and an uplifting way to give her encouragement even when you’re not by her side. Plus, it showcases a genuine diamond at the center of the cross for added sparkle.
Some of the best advice I ever got after graduation was to reach for the stars and follow my heart. This personalized glitter globe shares that sentiment in a stunning way with your graduate’s engraved name, engraved sentiment and gleaming golden accents.
Graduation Gifts for Him
This men’s bracelet is bold without being in your face. I imagine that whoever wears this bracelet is exactly the same way! Handcrafted in stainless steel with a two-tone finish, the real winning feature is the Tigers logo in purple enamel. Don’t forget there’s more college team memorabilia on our site!
Wherever your son goes in life, you know he’ll find his way with your encouragement! What an inspiring graduation gift this would be, featuring a real working compass in the shadowbox-style lid and his engraved name on the front. Plus, it provides the perfect place to keep his graduation cap tassel as a memento!
Does your graduate have school pride with them every minute? Then this collector’s watch is for them! My dad gave me a watch as a graduation gift, and I still wear it after all these years and think of him and that special time in my life. Visit our site to see all of our college team memorabilia.
Your son’s initials on the front, an engraved message of inspiration on the reverse — an amazing graduation gift in my book! Black and 24K-gold ion-plated accents make this personalized necklace really stand out among the rest, just like your boy!
I have a feeling fans of the Clemson Tigers will be celebrating their 2016 College National Champions for a while! This winning design has the look of a graduation ring to me, with the added bonus of National Champions logos, Swarovski crystals and rich, team color enameling. It’s a real winner! If your graduate roots for another school, make sure to see all of the college team memorabilia available on our site.
