10 Unique Graduation Gifts Your Grad Will Absolutely Love

With graduation season nearly upon us you may be looking for unique graduation gifts to give to your family member, friend or loved one who is graduating. Finding a graduation present that is different and special can be difficult and often times it is hard to think of something that isn’t a pair of earrings or a gold chain.

Here a 10 unique graduation gifts that we think will help you find exactly what you are looking for!

1.  Personalised charm bracelet

The first of our favourite unique graduation gifts is a personalised charm bracelet. These can have small photos of your graduate’s university journey, photos of you together, a mini graduation cap and scroll or be relevant to their degree (e.g. a mini stethoscope for a medical degree or an apple for a teaching degree).

2. Mini travel kit

Maybe your graduate is travelling abroad so the perfect unique graduation gifts would include a mini travel kit. This kit should have all the mini essentials that might be forgotten – for example a mini toothpaste and toothbrush, mini hand sanitiser, a lip balm, hair ties, band aids, burn cream, wet wipes and a pair of tweezers.

Wrap all of this up in a face washer, pop in a small cosmetics bag and your graduate will be ready to go!

3. Business Cards

Unique graduation gifts that you could get include business cards for your newly-qualified graduate. These could be serious business cards or if you could make it into an inside joke. To do this you could include, instead of their actual qualification, a personal skill they have. For example, “expert beer drinker”, “officer of messy bedrooms”, or “head of party planning”.
