Need to buy a gift for a graduating friend, relative or significant other? Here are some ideas from do-it-yourself crafts to some pricier options.


Pinterest is full instructions detailing how to make crafty, fun gifts.  There are ways to decorate and personalize picture frames.  There is also this candy board that plays on the names of candy bars.  Additionally, there are quilts made out of T-shirts, bottles filled with candy, photo collages and more.

Picture Frames

Graduation is time filled with memories.  Interesting picture frames can help capture those memories.  Personalization Mall will customize a picture frame by cutting out a one-line message on a mat board like this.

Dr. Seuss

If you are looking for a more sentimental approach for a graduation gift, there is “Oh the Places You’ll Go” by Dr. Seuss. You can write a personal message to the graduate on the title page, and the book can be paired with this “Dr. Seuss Happy Graduation Gift Set."

Gator Themed

If your graduate is proud of his or her school and not afraid to show it, there is a variety of orange and blue paraphernalia to give as gifts.  There are gator themed picture frames, alumni decals, stuffed animals and license plate frames to give to your proud gator graduate.


If all else fails, you cannot go wrong with money as a gift.  You can do it the old-fashioned way and stick the money in a card, or you can use a more creative approach like this “break glass in case of emergency frame.”
