Graduations are not just for high school and college. Today most schools and career fields have graduation ceremonies to celebrate the graduate entering the next phase of their education or work life.
Starting with Kindergarten, our children celebrate their graduation into their formal learning years. The lessons and ideals learned in pre-school will aide the child with future learning experiences.
After their formal youth studies, we celebrate a truly significant milestone in the lives of our children. High School graduation is a time of immense celebration and pride, the pride we feel for our graduating senior and the pride he or she has for having accomplished what seemed at times to be an insurmountable task. Many of these young adults take their education to even higher levels through college and trade school learning; others immediately begin their individual adult life.
A college graduation is truly a defining moment in ones life. College graduates have achieved the pinnacle of education in their chosen field of study; and they are now ready to begin their careers and their adult life.
Some high school graduates go directly into a trade or vocational school to learn real work skills which can be put to good use in a relatively short time. These young adults gain the real-world skills necessary to become Welders, Truck Drivers, Police Officers, Emergency Medical Technicians, Fire men and women, Nurses, IT Professionals, and so many other valuable trades. Graduates of trade and vocational schools share a pride with college graduates, in that they have mastered the skills necessary to insure a prosperous life.
For all of life’s graduation milestones, personalized graduations gifts are a great way to make the event vividly remembered for a life time. The most popular personalized kindergarten graduation gift is by far a personalized piggy bank or coin bank. It signifies our desire for the child to grow and prosper. High school graduations really are the most impressionable graduations in our lives. It’s a time when our children are moving into their own lives, often leaving life long friends and classmates, and even the home they’ve know all their lives. Personalized high school graduation gifts come from a wide variety of personalized gift ideas, some traditional, like key chains, photo albums, and money clips, and some are more contemporary, like coffee mugs, T-shirts, and DVD Video cases. College, trade and vocational school graduation gifts are most often representative of and related to the graduate’s field of study. Business professional graduates often receive business card cases, cufflinks and money clips. Nursing and medical professionals often receive a personalized gift crafted for their profession e.g. “#1 Nurse” or EMT key chains.
