Perfect Graduation Gifts for your Partner

If your partner’s graduation is just around the corner, you’re probably frantically searching for the perfect gift. It’s a big day and one that graduates remember for the rest of their lives, so you’ll know doubt want to get something special. Take a look below for some meaningful gifts that your partner is sure to appreciate on their big day!

  1. A photo frame– Arguably the biggest part of graduation day is having graduation photos, so it’s the perfect opportunity to get a beautiful photo frame befitting the occasion. This graduation gift idea is practical and can be personalised with their name and graduation year in a fun way.
  2. A good luck charm– Graduation is the celebration of finishing university, and whilst it takes a lot of hard work to pass exams, there’s no denying that it takes a certain amount of luck too! A good luck charm that symbolises prosperity and success is the perfect gift to bless your partner with all the luck they need for the future.
  3. A necklace– If you’re looking for a more luxury gift, a silver or gold necklace might be what you’re looking for. Choose a necklace with either lapis, symbolising wisdom, or moonstone, symbolising new beginnings, for an extra special gift.
  4. A new fragrance– They say smells can bring back even the deepest memories, and whilst you’re making new memories on such a special day, it’s important to remember them. A new perfume or aftershave will help to create stronger memories, so every time your partner puts it on, they’ll think back to their big day.
  5. Cap and gown – Many graduation gowns are for rental only, but there is usually the option to buy the robes afterwards. Unfortunately, these are usually a little more expensive than your typical graduate can afford, so consider buying the set for them. In a similar way to how wedding dresses are kept after a wedding, a cap and gown can bring back great memories every time your partner opens their wardrobe.
  6. A hot air balloon ride – Not for the faint of heart, but perfect for those who love thrills and have grown attached to their university city. Book a hot air balloon flight over the city for a spectacular view of the university and wider area from above, and don’t forget to take photos!
  7. A drinks hamper – It wouldn’t be a proper graduation without a glass of bubbly or two, or ten. If your partner is partial to a fancy champagne or a classy red wine, choose a few of their favourites and gift them in a hamper. If they last longer than the night, they can be used for graduation dinners, but if they don’t last, at least everyone will have had a very good night!
  8. A mini break – University is at times a stressful experience, especially around exam season. Graduation is the culmination of years of hard work and grafting, and long nights in the library trying to find one more reference. In all likelihood, your partner is ready for a break! Whisk them away to a relaxing destination where they can lounge in the sun and swim all day long.
  9. A spa day – If a mini break is out of your budget, consider a spa day instead. Soothing back massages, luxurious facials and otherwise general pampering will be much appreciated by any graduate. If possible, try to book a couple’s session so that your partner has company and someone to chat to.
  10. A tattoo – University is an experience many want to remember for the rest of their lives, and a tattoo is a great way to commemorate it. A symbol of the university, the city they lived in or the subject they studied all make great designs – all you need to do is find a reputable parlour and buy a gift card from them.
