Unique Graduation Gifts To Wish Them Congrats

Updated by Lyndsay Cordell

There’s no better feeling than watching a loved one graduation, be it from High School or a Masters program. This feat calls for a celebration, and with it, some very unique graduation gifts. Sure, you can give the recent grad a gift card or some cold, hard cash, but what’s the fun in that? Gift your grad a unique experience they can only receive from Cratejoy.

Gifts For High School Graduates

Graduation can be daunting. While it is a time to celebrate, it can be overwhelming to think about the future, especially for High School grads. To help ease the transition to college life (or life after high school) gift them with something personal and thoughtful. How about a monthly gift of exotic noodles they can eat in their dorm room or a Paper Bliss box filled with cute and personable office supplies? These personal gifts can be sent on an ongoing basis, reminding your grad about how much you care.

Gifts For College Graduates

Most college graduates are ready to take some time off and relax before applying to grad school or heading into the job market. Gift them something fun and relaxing such as an Unplugged Book Box filled with a new fiction release and 3-5 self care items. Reading not their thing? What about sending them a 3-month subscription to the 180° Box ? Your recent grad will receive everything from bath bombs and serums to healthy snacks and even jewelry.

Gifts For Masters Graduates

Is your grad planning on jumping straight into the working field? Show them how proud you are with gifts containing entrepreneur and leadership essentials. Success Crate is packed to the brim with all the tools budding entrepreneurs need to start in their field as well as a few self-care items to help them relax from all the new challenges. Another great option is Sparkle Hustle Grow, an award-winning monthly subscription box focused on female entrepreneurs. Along with office supplies, tech gadgets and stationery, this subscription service also includes an online community for members as well as online training webinars and masterclasses.

Whatever the occasion, Cratejoy has you covered with the best unique gifts you can’t find anywhere else.
