My Facebook feed is full of end of year celebrations already. My daughter is finishing 5th grade this year. She goes to a K-8th grade school so 5th grade is not such a big deal, but for a lot of her friends the end of elementary school is near. Graduating elementary school is a big milestone. You always know your kids are going to grow up, but it’s still so strange and sad/happy when it actually starts happening. I remember having a lot of feelings about the end of elementary school when my oldest graduated. It is certainly bittersweet.
With graduation comes graduation gifts. I think a graduation gift should be thoughtful and also carry a little meaning by encouraging the graduate to keep going forward and succeeding in life, try new things, have an adventure or just remember their own potential. That’s a lot to accomplish in a gift! So I put together some gift ideas for graduates. I should add a box of Kleenex to the graphic (for you, not them).
