What do grads and dads have in common? When it comes to gift-giving occasions, they can be tough to shop for. Not sure what to get Dad or Grandpa for Father’s Day or for a milestone birthday? Need a custom-made gift for your daughter’s high school graduation party? We’ve got you covered with the 8 best gift ideas for grads and dads.
Ideas for Grads
1. Design a diploma frame.
With our custom online moulding and matting tools, you can tailor our signature diploma frames to suit your high school graduate’s personal style. How about framing her senior portrait alongside her diploma? Or giving him a diploma display that includes his grad cap tassel? You can even add a state seal medallion, an embossed school mascot, or a custom-engraved gold plate—the possibilities are endless!
2. Capture favorite memories.
Adjusting to new surroundings is hard, so why not send them off to college this fall with favorite photos from home? Brighten a dorm room with our Lasting Memories photo frames, which you can customize with their school colors and graduation year. For a whimsical design, try our popular Grad Logo photo frame. Or for a special college send-off, have party guests write special messages to the graduate on our Autograph Frame.
3. Congratulate the sports star.
Your student athlete will love seeing his or her varsity letter framed in our modern Omega moulding with a satin black finish. To showcase their school spirit, select mats in their team colors and add an embossed school mascot, sports insignia, or graduation year in silver, black, or gold.
4. Applaud their academic achievements.
Earning a membership to an honor society is a huge achievement. Know a student who is an International Distinguished Scholar, a member of the National Beta Club, or who was inducted into the National English Honor Society? Preserve their medals, certificates of recognition, or banquet photos in frames with officially licensed medallions and embossed seals.
