My sister has finally reached that point of graduation!! To think that I did so a full 11 years ago… it feels like yesterday really. 😀 In honor of this epic moment, I decided that I will get a present to symbolize her graduation and her transition towards adulthood. May she remember her teenage years with joy!
Give the new grad a break from school responsibilities for a while and let him or her bask in the glory of finishing school. Whether it’s high school, college or university, a fresh graduate deserves a treat from you. Aside from a lunch or dinner treat, you can get the fresh grad discount designer fragrances, a new gadget and three other gift ideas.
1. Discount Designer Fragrances
The easiest way to please a new graduate is to give him or her a designer fragrance. Wrapping such fragrance as a present brings a special feeling. It also means the person graduates from the usual generic colognes found in drugstores. There’s a sense of maturity in wearing a designer fragrance and gives the wearer a status symbol as well. You can find designer brands at BeautyEncounter.com. For discounts, use Beauty Encounter codes and join their contests for a chance to score $100 value eGift Card.
2. New Gadget
If you have a child or sibling who just graduated high school and has been begging you to buy him or her a new iPhone, now’s the time to do so. Some parents are lenient towards their kids, giving whatever the kids ask. Other parents who are more of the disciplinarian would prefer a balance of responsibility and reward. If you think it’s high time for a reward, a graduation gift concerning gadgets would be one awesome gift.
3. Dollar Bills or a Credit Card
The best way to cheer up a new grad is to give him or her money (seriously). If you’re that generous, you can put 5 $100 dollar bills in an envelope. If you’re creative enough, you can roll a bunch of bills of different denominations, tie them with a rubber band or ribbon and put them in a box. Giving the new grad some money will give him or her a sort of responsibility whether to spend all the money, save some or save them all.
4. Room Makeover
When your son or daughter becomes a young adult, he or she would want to have some privacy. When your child is sharing a room with another sibling, a great graduation gift would be to grant a separate room. This isn’t just an ordinary bedroom by the way. This can be THE perfect place. Game consoles, a home movie-theatre system, maybe a hammock or a surfboard creatively plastered across his room would be his dream come true. What would be a girl’s dream? A walk-in closet.
5. Travel Experience
Whether you’re joining the newly-grad on a trip or if it’s a life-changing experience you want him or her to engage in, a travel experience is one luxurious treat that will widen one’s horizon. A first-hand experience of the world’s different cultures can come as a shock but it’s a priceless experience for the newly-grad. Grant him or her a luxurious two-week trip to Europe or an adventure backpacking escapade to Asia. Nowadays, young people aren’t just measured in their education and formal achievements but more often, they’re measured based on life experiences and strengths.
