Two Graduations in Two Days
Where did the time go? You can see the memory walls above of my son (25) and my daughter (23). My son has progressed from baby to toddler to a student to a black belt in Karate to a DJ to a college student to a soon-to-be graduating pharmacist (that’s 20 years of school folks!) My daughter has transitioned from a darling little infant to a curly headed toddler to a student then a semi-pro ballerina to soon-to-be graduating graphic designer.
In early May, my two children will graduate within two days of each other, my son with a Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D) from Wayne State University and my daughter with a Bachelor of Fine Arts and a Bachelor in Hospitality Business (that’s two degrees people!) from Michigan State University. That’s a lot of accomplishments over a short life time. So a mother really has to think when considering what graduation gifts to buy them!
What gifts makes the BEST college graduation gifts?
When considering graduation gift ideas, I have the following criteria:
- The gift must be a lasting memento reminding them of their accomplishment
- The gift needs to be of high value but not break the budget
- Affordable enough that it can be incorporated into a bigger budget gift if desired (paired with a trip, a camera, etc.)
- Should be an item that shows the graduate how proud you are of them
- Should be an item that highlights the years of extreme sacrifice and when viewed over the years will bring back that feeling of extreme pride
I settled on college diploma frames for my graduates
Church Hill Classics sent us these stunning diploma frames so you could see the best college graduation gifts for my graduates. My daughter received a Michigan State University diploma frame. You will note it is double diploma frame (as Kelly will graduate with two degrees). My son received the Tassle Edition Wayne State University diploma frame. Both frames have Conservation UV protection and Reflection Control glass.
In choosing Church Hill Classics diploma frames, I figured that after all of the time and money spent by myself, their dad and them earning that degree, their diplomas should not end up in a drawer, forgotten about, or even destroyed!
Did you know that in a recent survey, The Motherhood found that nearly 70% of respondents never framed their diplomas!
Watch my children’s reactions as they receive their diploma frames:
