Gift Guide: Congrats, Grad!

Gift Guide- For the Graduate

Since I know several people who will be graduating over the next several weeks, I thought it would be fun to gather up a few gift ideas for graduates!  You can check out all the links in the full post over on the Etsy New York team blog! :)

Tell me: Are you planning to attend a graduation in the next few months?


  • Alice Graham

    Wow. All those gifts are absolutely stunning. I will have to buy my mom earrings kinda like those ones above.

    • Thanks Alice- glad you like them!

  • These are great! I’m having a really low key grad this coming weekend (my dad’s health made my parents unable to travel so no family will be around and I crapped out on the academic job market so I don’t have a ton to celebrate) but I still hope I get a thoughtful present or two.

    • Thanks Courtney! Aww, I’m sorry to hear about your tough luck with the job market, but you definitely still have reason to celebrate! Tomorrow’s the big day, right? Hope it’s a great one! :)

  • Great idea, they are all so sweet. Can’t wait until I have finished my degrees. Only have until the end of this year at university.

    • Thank you Imogen :) You must be so excited that you’ll be finishing later this year!

  • Giovanna

    Cute picks! Loving those bangles!


    • Thank you Giovanna! I think they’re really cute too! :)

  • Very cute picks! I would’ve loved these when I graduated. :)

  • thanks for the comment over at my blog! I LOVE and now need those heart rings. Are they phalange rings?

  • Ooh so many cute pieces!!! I love those rings on the top right :)

  • Jennifer

    The “Your Future is so Bright…” card looks so nice and fitting for the occasion, not to mention witty.

    • Yes, I love a witty card! :)

  • I’m not attending any graduations but these are just cute gifts in general for anything!

    • Thank you Rodelle! I agree, these could be great gifts for a birthday or holiday too! :)

  • I am so glad that none of these gifts look like paperweights. Who wants a paperweight? I’m not even sure what they do … I love your ideas. These gifts are super cute and look personal.

    • Thanks Bonnie! Haha, I don’t know what you do with a paperweight either, other than use it for decoration maybe?!

  • oohhh cool, thank you for this. seriously i never know what to get graduates except cash. but it’s fun to get a gift too!

    • You’re very welcome Claire- I’m glad to share these gift ideas! :) But trust me, graduates always love cash too! ;)

  • Those are all very thoughtful and I’m sure helpful for those looking for a grad gift. The Sunglasses are my fave.

    • Thank you Smita- I always have fun putting together these gift guides! :)

  • great post! nice photos!
