Thank you to JORD for providing this beautiful Ely Watch, a very meaningful graduation gift.
I know, I know, if you ask any graduate what they would like as a gift… They are going to say money. I know I would be the same way. As a gift giver sometimes you are looking for a gift other than money, instead you want a meaningful graduation gift that they will have for years to come.
Well, at least that was the situation I was in when I pondered what to get my baby sister for her college graduation. I’m sure I’m not the only one who has struggled coming up with the perfect gift for a grad, so here is what I decided on plus a few more gift ideas that are grad approved. I know, I checked.
For my sister I decided to get her an Ely JORD Women’s watch in Cherry. I had never thought of getting her a watch until I was actually looking at it for myself and saw how much she liked it. We talked about it several more times, but the whole time she thought I was getting it for myself.
We both love the watch for the same reasons, uniqueness and style. My sister was especially excited about it being wood because she has sensitive skin, and even expensive metal watches cause her problems sometimes.
I felt like a JORD wooden watch would be the ideal graduation gift because it is something that is practical that she can use everyday, and because of the quality will serve as a reminder of her accomplishments for years to come.
I was so happy to see her smile when she opened the present, and I can’t believe I did it but I actually surprised her, which makes it memorable in itself. My baby sister means the world to me and holds a very special place in my heart, as well as my family. Little man thinks she is his sister too, that is just how close they are. I couldn’t be more proud of the lady she has become. I’m so lucky that we are so close, and I get to be part of her life. I love that on her special day I was able to give her a very meaningful gift to show her just that.
Other Meaningful Graduation Gift Ideas
My brother-in-law actually did this for my sister and I know it was so appreciated. You can’t really take pictures when you are part of the event, so having someone who could use their talents to capture her important day was a wonderful gift.
What greater way to celebrate your grad’s accomplishments than to throw a party in their honor. When my sister was graduating high school I collected these 25 Graduation Ideas: Gifts, Food and Decorations that are helpful in the party planning process.
Monogrammed and Personalized Gift
This could be a money clip for a guy or even monogrammed towel. Personalizing takes something that is so simple and practical and really makes it a very meaningful gift.
My sister is actually going to be finishing her degree at a larger university, and I have heard her mention how having a bike to get around would make life easier. So, I think this would be a great gift for anyone traveling away to school. Let’s be honest the new car they want just isn’t going to happen.
If they are a high school grad going off to college chances are they will realize the importance of coffee very soon. I love my iCoffee Single Serve Opus brewer. I makes a delicious cup of coffee and would be a great gift.
I know this is something my sister would have liked, because I promised her one for her high school graduation. I haven’t forgotten, I promise you will get it one day. I plan to make her an album showing a timeline of her life and accomplishment that lead up to her graduation, and then of course the graduation itself.
Of course, jewelry is always a great gift. Obviously I think so since I gave my sister a JORD watch, but any kind of jewelry would make a memorable gift. For my sister’s high school graduation my dad got her a set of pearls. Which happen to be my favorite, so I always think they make a good gift. Personalized jewelry is also a great option.
Do you have any ideas or suggestions for a memorable graduation gift? I would love to hear what you think in the comments.
