Graduation Gift Ideas for High School & College Grads

Its graduation season! Mid to late May is the time when students everywhere are anxious to throw their hats in the air, get out of the classroom and do a little victory dance to celebrate the culmination of years of study and the onset of another summer. Whether your student is receiving a high school diploma, GED, Bachelor’s Degree or even something higher, we’re excited to help you celebrate their accomplishments through special graduation gifts from Figi’s! Here are a few of o
ur favorite gift ideas for the young men & women taking those exciting steps this year.

Personalized Graduation Gifts

Personalized Graduation Gifts | Figi'sA great graduation gift should express your pride in the graduate; both in who they are and in how far they have come to reach this point. You see, it takes great deal of dedication to complete a 4 year degree, and at the end, graduates are often changed by their efforts – molded by time & ink into someone who is ready to do, see, and continue learning more.

With that in mind, one of our favorite ways to commemorate such a special time is with a personalized wood pen set. Personalized graduation gifts offer a means to tailor your gift to the personality of the graduate, and the pen itself serves as a symbolic reminder to always continue pursuing their education.

Graduation Memorabilia

Whenever significant milestones come to pass, we turn to special memorabilia for a way to capture a moment in time and hold it in memory for as long as we can. More than simple souvenirs or trinkets, personalized memorabilia serve as triggers for memories and emotions born from the successful completion of a single great achievement. These are the kinds of keepsakes that last a lifetime!

Graduation Gift Baskets

Graduation Gift Baskets | Figi'sSometimes the best gift a graduate receives is simply the celebration itself! Some graduation parties are huge affairs packed with extended family members, gifts & food, while others enjoy a more intimate gathering of close friends. However you decide to celebrate, remember that a graduation gift basket filled with delicious snacks, treats, & finger foods is an easy way to get the party started right. Try a hearty snack selection of Wisconsin cheeses & meats, or bring something sweet to share with our famous petit fours from Figi’s!
