Graduation season is a time to celebrate achieving accomplishments and reaching milestones. It's both the closing of a chapter of life and a fresh beginning. Giving gifts to the beloved graduates of our lives is a nice way to join in on the celebration, but sometimes it's hard to come up with good gift ideas. That's where this blog comes in- by providing some personal and unique gift ideas that will stand out from the pile (and be useful, too)!
Whether headed to college or into the workforce, a planner is a handy thing to have. It has been said many times before, but "adulting" is hard. One of the things that makes it difficult is keeping track of all the upcoming events in your busy schedule. Using a planner makes this task a lot easier, and having a planner that has its own visual panache makes it all the more appealing to keep on hand. Our Leather Planners are sublimation-ready, so customizing them with a full color photograph or design is a snap. They also work with Heat Transfer Vinyl (HTV), opening up the options for personalization even more!
Sublimation Fabric Notebook
While it is true that there are many options for writing things down with our electronic devices these days, there really is something to be said for writing in an actual physical notebook. The act of writing can even help with memorization when taking notes! Many people find journaling to be a helpful way to reflect on their thoughts, and a notebook is also a great tool for that endeavor. Much like our Sublimation Leather Planners, our Sublimation Fabric Notebooks work with both sublimation and HTV designs, so customize to your heart's (or your graduate's) content!
Sublimation Photo Panel
Our Sublimation Photo Panels are made from high quality aluminum, and are a wonderful way to make sure a picture lasts a lifetime. Not only do they provide the true-to-life, vivid colors possible with dye sublimation, they are incredibly durable and can be either put in a frame or displayed as-is. They come in sizes 4"x6", 5"x7", 8"x8", 8"x10", 8"x12", 12"x12", and 11"x14", and are a unique (and dare we say "cool?") way to display a meaningful photo that can be admired for years to come.
Often, graduating means moving into a new place, and it's both fun and important to decorate that space and make it a home. Hanging cards or photos up on your fridge (or dorm-room mini-fridge) can be a nice touch, and our selection of sublimation magnets allows for just that. Both our Ceramic Fridge Magnets and our Hardboard Magnets are sublimation-ready, so adding a pop of color to your fridge (or any other magnetic item, we won't stop you!) is as easy as choosing the image you would like.
Garden Flag and Unisub Garden Flag Poles
Garden flags grab peoples' attention, and as such, are a great way to let people know that there's a graduation party happening and where it is taking place! We have several sizes of Garden Flags available, all double-sided and sublimation-ready. You could even sublimate them with a mildly embarrassing photo from your grad's childhood...but that's just a suggestion. We know a garden flag can't stand up on its own, so we also offer Garden Flag Poles designed to let your freak flag fly and be seen above your spotlight-hogging hydrangeas!
Grad WALAStock Rhinestone Transfers
Aside from our customizable blanks, we also have WALAStock Rhinestone Transfers for your graduate that are ready to press. Great for spicing up a t-shirt, sweatshirt, or anything that needs a bit of bling, these stock rhinestone transfers are sure to please any graduate that loves things that glitter. Besides, what says "celebration" more than some flashy rhinestones?
Grad WALAStock Transfers
On top of our stock rhinestone transfers, we also have WALAStock Transfers specifically for grads. These are Supacolor transfers that have a soft hand feel, a generous amount of stretch, and are tested to 50+ domestic wash cycles, so they'll remain stable and colorful far into the future. They are easy to press, eye-catching, and versatile, so if rhinestones aren't in your grad's style, our WALAStock Grad Transfers have you covered.
Graduation season is a time for looking back on memories and looking forward to making new ones, and with these graduation gift ideas, we hope you'll find it easier to let go of the stress of finding a gift and be able to focus more on the party, fun, and bright future that's ahead of the scholars in your life.
