It’s that time of year when graduations are on the top of everyone’s minds. Schools are winding down for the summer. And, graduates around the globe are marking this important occasion. Whether your child is graduating from Kindergarten or a loved one is earning their college degree, there are many different types of graduations and ways to celebrate. But, what’s the best way to celebrate and commemorate this milestone? Though there’s not one specific way or type of gift necessary to make a graduation memorable, we’ll take a look at some of the best ways you can help your recent grad reflect and rejoice their achievements. Here are the top 7 most memorable graduation gifts.

1. Money or Gift Cards

    This one might seem obvious. But, giving a graduate money or gift cards is the perfect memorable gift. Not only will they appreciate the flexibility to purchase what they want or need, but it also helps them build up a savings if they need to too. For younger graduates, consider getting a gift card to their favorite toy story, bookstore, or place to visit. That way they can enjoy the fun of picking out something special. For older graduates, money can be a great way to help them create a nest egg or savings as they head to college or settle into their first apartment.

    2. Computer or Tablet

    When it comes to a great gift for graduates of most ages, technology is a good way to good. Even younger kids and teenagers will find use in a computer or tablet. Getting a new computer or tablet is also perfect for a recent high school grad who is heading off to a college or a college graduate heading off into their first professional job.

    3. Books

    A book is a perfect memorable way to celebrate your graduates academic endeavors. And, it doesn’t have to be too academic either. For younger grads, choose a book that has some meaning or might be a good read as they move through their academic career. For high school graduates, consider an uplifting book, like “Oh, the Places You'll Go!” by Dr. Seuss -- a classic graduation gift -- or help them purchase their college textbooks. 

    4. Jewelry

    From class rings, bracelets, and necklaces, jewelry can remind graduates of their achievements every time they wear them. Not only is it a keepsake, but the gift giver can create a personal message engraved in the jewelry or choose something that has personal meaning for both the giver and recipient. The options to personalize jewelry are endless and can be completely customized to help you create the most memorable of graduation gifts.

    5. Homemade Gifts
