Celebrate Their Achievements with These Four Thoughtful Graduation Gifts

Spring is half way through which means you might start to wonder how to celebrate high school graduation and the accomplishments of the special grads in your life.

Whether they're headed off to college or starting their first job - show them how proud you are with a thoughtful and unique graduation gift. 

We've put together a list of four of our favorite graduation gifts that are perfect for any grad, and are sure to make them feel loved and appreciated.


#1 - A Small Green Plant

Help your grad bring a little bit of nature into their new apartment or dorm with a small green plant!

Not only do plants add a pop of color to any space, they also help purify the air and promote relaxation. It’s a well known fact that adding nature to any space gives a mental health boost! 

Choose a low-maintenance plant that's easy to care for, such as a succulent or snake plant.

#2 - Memories in a Picture Frame

While it’s an exciting time in your grads life, it’s also a time of major transition. Which is why a picture frame with a favorite family photo or snapshot of friends makes an excellent gift. It's a special reminder that while they’re off to chase their dreams, there is still no place like home.

Choose a frame that matches their style whether it's classic and elegant or fun and colorful! 

Include a special photo you have of them… and perhaps tuck some cash in ;) We bet they would appreciate that too!


#3 - Something Local

There is nothing like a gift that reminds you of home, which is why we love the idea of gifting a locally made product. Not only does it support local businesses, but it also shows your grad that you care about their comfort and happiness. 

And if you were wondering where on earth you could find such a thing… Bloom carries Rural Candle Co. candles handcrafted right here in Algona, IA along with other locally made goods.

#4 -  A Freshly Wrapped Bouquet 

Graduation flowers are a great way to add a touch of beauty to any celebration, and high school graduations are no exception!

A freshly wrapped bouquet is one of our absolute favorite ways to give money or a gift card because it makes it extra special and is sure to brighten your grad's day.

When choosing the right flowers for graduation celebrations, aim for their favorite colors (or favorite flower if you know it!) or opt for a classic graduation theme with their local school colors. 


Whether your favorite grad is near or far, Bloom can help you with the perfect gift. Don’t forget we can deliver gifts and gift cards to their home or school! Shop online or speak to a floral designer to create the perfect custom graduation present.
