Good ideas for a "graduation" present

13 replies
Found 9th May 2010
My best friend finishes her 4 year degree on Wednesday (finishes the work, it's not her graduation ceremony) and I want to get her a nice present. I've already got a Body Shop hamper type thing but I'd like to get something else. Obviously I've thought of the usual, clothes, makeup, jewellery, vodka!!!!! But I'd like something more sentimental... Any thoughts?

If its your best friend - why not go for one of them photo make over sessions - great fun too

I mean a photo session with both of you btw - you would both have so much fun

What about a really nice pen, you could engrave it - or is that a bit boring?

Good idea but really hard finding the time for it. We're both always quite busy, for instance she's in London performing for a couple of months and then heading back home, back here for a bit, then off to a residential course etc! Otherwise it would be great.

Possibly a little boring... she's probably seen enough of books and pens for a while!! Haha!

If you have a lot of photos together over the years then maybe a photobook?

I've bought various personalised champagnes from this site, the bubbly is good quality if you want to drink it otherwise it is a great thing to keep.

Was going to suggest the same but if your wanting it for wednesday you have little chance of getting one done by then!

I got one from photobox recently and took about a week. Ive got a post somewhere for a free one, click on my posts if you still want one of these even with the timescale!!

Heres the link it says expires end of April but has been exteneded until end of May.

What I'm going to do is a collage... cut out loads of pictures of us and our friends and put them all in a massive frame. I've done it before a couple of years ago for another friend but completely forgot! Thanks everyone
