Celebrate the grad in your life
Your loved one is about to graduate. What an incredible accomplishment!
It could be your child, grandchild, niece, nephew, spouse, parent, sibling, childhood buddy, or best friend. Someone you know and love and are very proud of. This person has spent the last several years working hard to complete a major milestone, making sacrifices along the way and adjusting to unexpected curve balls, including a global pandemic.
Now it’s time to show your appreciation and admiration for this very special grad. It’s time to choose a graduation gift with meaning, a gift that says, “I fully recognize everything you put into this goal, including all the hard work, dedication, and sacrifice, and I’m so incredibly proud of you.”
What graduation gift will you choose?
A Truly Memorable Photo Gift For The Soon-To-Be Grad
The best graduation gifts come from the heart and touch the recipient’s heart. High school or college graduation gifts need to be special. They need to commemorate this important chapter of the grad’s life and celebrate all that this person has accomplished.
A memorable photo gift can do just that. Photo memories presented in the form of framed prints make a lasting impression, marking this milestone while honoring the graduate, who will appreciate the thought and effort that went into this graduation gift.
What’s more, there are so many different options available for preserving photo memories through custom prints. Here are some ideas to get you started.
Beautiful, Classic Framed Prints
Gallery-style framed prints will preserve your grad’s memories into permanent keepsakes that exude contemporary elegance. Start with a high-quality image that reflects something meaningful about the grad. It could be a recent picture against a dramatic landscape backdrop, such as cascading mountains, or a spectacular seascape from a recent travel adventure.
You could opt for a pre-graduation photo taken with the soon-to-be graduate wearing a cap and gown. Or you may choose an image taken on graduation day that captures all of the excitement and promise of that momentous day.
Select a frame and mat combination that brings out the best in your print, and that will look stunning when displayed prominently on their wall. A classic black and white mat framed print is a great choice that will continue to look first-rate through the years. Framed prints make wonderful graduation gifts that celebrate your grad’s proud accomplishment.
Striking, Timeless Canvas Prints
Another great option is to turn your selected print into a custom, high-quality canvas print. These are crafted by hand to perfection for a look that says, “Wow!”
A canvas print is water- and fade-resistant, using archival canvas that is museum-quality. These prints literally pop out of the wall to captivate the viewer. Your grad will appreciate having a quality canvas print as a special memento to remember their accomplishment year after year.
Complete Photo Collages
The great thing about photo collages is that you’re not limited to just one picture for your thoughtful graduation gift. You can use two, three, or four of your favorite shots to capture an entire set of memories your loved one can proudly display.
For example, you can mix and match photos of graduation day with pictures from the grad’s instagram account alongside life long friends they’ve made. Or all of the photos in your collage can be of the big event, with one image showing the moment your grad receives a diploma or degree, and the rest capturing other beautiful memories from that special day with family and friends.
