Holiday & Seasonal


This graduation year is certainly one that will never be forgotten.

While many grieve for everything they’re missing, it’s pretty cool to see the creative ideas people are coming up with to replace the traditional ceremonies and celebrations. If your kid or grandkid’s school is doing something fun and different, let us know about it in the comments.

Meanwhile, I’ve rounded up a bunch of graduation gift ideas for those needing some inspiration.

one // two // three // four // five // six // seven // eight // nine // ten // eleven // twelve // thirteen // fourteen // fifteen // sixteen

While “cash is king” and probably what most kids prefer, sometimes it’s nice to have a small gift to go along with it. And depending on your relationship, you may be looking for a more significant gift to commemorate the occasion.

I tried to round up a variety of options at various price points.

  1. Great gift ideas – we don’t have any graduates in the family this year, but I’ll certainly save this post for next year, when we do!  My alma mater school district is doing something pretty unique for their graduates – they will be crossing the “Finish Line” at Pocono Raceway!  The track officials are making it pretty special for the graduates & their families of not only this school, but have opened up the track for other schools as well. The district in which our daughter teaches is having their seniors meet at their school for one last gathering, then parade in their cars w/family, through the small towns to our local fairgrounds. From there, the ceremony will be broadcast via the jumbotron there.  We plan on watching the parade & cheering them on when it happens. Such a heartbreak for the Class of 2020, but so many people have come up with such unique ways to recognize this special class. 

  2. I don’t have anyone graduating this year, but these are great gift ideas for anytime!  Great post!

  3. No grads here but I saw on Facebook that my little hometown did a “reverse parade” for the graduating Seniors. Each kid was assigned a parking space ( every other one in order to maintain distance) in the school lot. They could decorate with Chalk, their car…whatever. The kids donned their caps and grown ( or whatever, they wanted. Some wore t-shirts representing their future colleges, some high school activities)and waited in their spot. Then family, friends, school staff, and town folks drove past, honking and shouting congratulations. It looked like fun and definitely the kind of small town thing that’s in the plus column for “everyone has known me and my business my entire life” 😉
