Unique Graduation Gift Ideas For All Personality Types

“Dads and Grads” season is among us, which means graduation parties, ceremonies, and virtual get-togethers are on their way. Choosing the perfect graduation gift for the graduate(s) in your life can be overwhelming, but there are a few ways you can go about honoring their hard work and celebrate the next chapter of their life. We have a few ideas of how you can show a hardworking graduate that you are proud of them!  
For the sentimental grad: A customized t-shirt quilt  
A customized t-shirt quilt is a perfect way to memorialize your graduate’s journey by repurposing old shirts from camp, game day, memorable trips, concerts, school events, and more. If you aren’t confident in your sewing abilities, no worries! Various websites can do this for you, including Project RepatMemoryStitch, and various Etsy sellers.  
These cherishable blankets are a one-of-a-kind keepsake that can help tell a story as well as memorialize the past. Not to mention that reusing old textiles (like shirts) is a great way to support the environment. Approximately 84% of clothing ends up in landfills or incinerators; by repurposing old shirts, you are also giving a gift of sustainability!  
For the adventurous grad: Packing cubes  
Packing cubes can help save a ton of space and make packing, moving, and traveling a breeze! This kit includes a pack of 5 high-quality, water-resistant cubes along with a laundry bag to keep dirty and clean clothes separate when on a trip.  
For high school graduates about to head off to college, this is a perfect way to keep their belongings neat and organized. There are eight different color options available, so there’s something to fit every personality.  
For the health-conscious grad: Magic Bullet Blender  
This compact blender is perfect for those looking to whip up healthy smoothies, snacks, and purees. The blender cups are made of high-impact plastic, making them ideal for on-the-go meals and easy cleanup. The Magic Bullet Blender kit (which can be purchased at your local Target, Walmart, or online at Amazon) comes with the blender system and a recipe book, cup lids, and extra blades!  
For the skincare loving grad: An all-natural skincare set  
If you’re looking for an all-encompassing skincare set that encompasses everything needed for a little bit of at-home pampering, check out our BEE Beautiful Hive-Share set. The set includes a lip balm, lotion bar, salt scrub, sugar scrub, body butter, and a heel & foot balm! All of our Keepers Collective skincare products are small-batch, handcrafted, and made with all-natural ingredients. Each product also contains our very own hive-made ingredients such as raw honey, propolis, bee pollen, royal jelly, or beeswax - a perfect way to improve skin health and clarity naturally.  
To complement our perfect skincare set, consider adding on a jar of our Keepers Secret Salve or brand new Honey Face Wash!  
For the goal-setting grad: A five-minute journal  
This innovative journal can help change your life and boost happiness in as little as 5 minutes per day! Meant to be used daily, this journal’s prompts encourage users to jot down positive affirmations, things you’re grateful for, intention-setting statements, and more. It can be used every day for six months, helping your graduate start every day smiling and motivated to be their best.  
For the stressed grad: A weighted blanket  
We all know the importance of a good night’s sleep. Unfortunately, most college kids stay in noisy dorms with roommates who may have different sleeping and study schedules than their own. Besides, life can be super stressful as a new graduate! Weighted blankets have been renowned for their ability to reduce anxiety and encourage relaxation and sleep.  
For the hungry, eco-friendly grad: Beeswax wraps 
There’s nothing better than coming home from a late-night of studying to fresh, delicious leftovers! However, excessive usage of plastic bags, cling wrap, and aluminum foil can lead to improper disposal - filling up landfills and affecting our environment’s health. Beeswax wraps are a perfect, sustainable alternative! They are antibacterial and water-resistant to keep food fresher, longer. They can even be washed and reused for up to 9 - 12 months! After their lifetime is up, beeswax wraps are compostable and biodegradable. Available in 4 fun colors: FreesiaSunflowerHydrangea, and Edelweiss.  
For the last minute grad: A gift card  
As impersonal as a gift card may sound, sometimes they are the best gift! Every grad has found themselves perusing the decor or “dorm essentials” section of Target, Bed, Bath & Beyond, Walmart, Amazon, etc. Gift cards from one of these national retailers can help them check off those last-minute items before it’s time for the semester to start! You may also want to consider a store where they can purchase some clothing to build their professional attire wardrobe, such as Old Navy, Banana Republic, Gap, Macy’s, Nordstrom, or Kohls.
