Graduation is a special ceremony, even if it means stepping from undergraduate studies to graduate studies or moving on from graduate studies to enter the corporate world. A graduation gift is a simple way to applaud the successful achievements of the graduates.
Although there are a lot of graduation gifts available in gift shops, if you want the gift to be truly unique, then you can use one of these ideas to pull it off perfectly. These ideas are not only easy to make, but will help you create truly special and warm gifts which will stand out from the crowd of clich├ęd and conventional ones.
Homemade graduation gifts are always more special than the ready-made gifts available at gift stores, as they say a lot about the kind of effort and thought that has gone into making them.
Gift Basket
Basket with gifts
Gift baskets are a great way to put together a lot of small and thoughtful gifts into one basket. After graduation, if the person is about to go to college, then you can obviously give him/her some stationery and other useful gifts which he/she can use in college.
Empty notebook and gift
Just put together some pens, pencils, notebooks, books, pen holders, folders, or any other products that you think would be useful for him/her. In addition to this, you can add planners and organizers as well.

If the graduating person is about to enter the corporate world and become a working professional, then some corporate stationery or formal clothing and accessories can be a great addition to your gift basket.
Luxury chocolates
You can add some T-shirts, chocolates, or something that the person likes, to spruce up the gift basket and make it more interesting.
University/College-themed Gifts

Every student is usually very attached to his/her college or university and is always glad to flaunt the university logo or the trademark university colors.
The graduate school logos or the university colors can all be incorporated into this gift idea. If you are good at quilting, you can make a graduation quilt using the university colors and the logo as well. You can even knit a nice sweater with that person's initials and the university logo, which can be a really special gift for graduation.
Wool Scarf
In addition to this, you can even knit a muffler with the initials and the logo. A homemade handbag or purse with the university colors and logo might also be a great idea.
Graduation Scrapbook

Scrapbooking is a great way to put together fond college and university memories as a unique homemade gift. Create a beautiful graduation scrapbook by adding pictures of the college as well as the graduating student, and also some of his/her friends.
If you are looking for more content to add to the scrapbook, you can also put in famous graduation quotes. Try to create a scrapbook which is a collection of all the fond memories of the college/university that the person has.
You can decorate the scrapbook using his/her favorite colors. Try to make it more interesting by using things like fall leaves from the campus, library receipts, or even portions of assignments or test papers.
Graduation gifts can be made in many ways. They should make the person remember all the good times that their college or university gave them, and yet also look forward to the new phase of life with eagerness. And when these gifts are made at home, they become that much more special.
