Our graduation gift ideas help friends, family and fellow students make practical and fun choices


We hope the following thoughts will help you make your shortlist for graduates.

  • Basic determining factors are your relationship to the graduate, if the next phase in their life is study or work, if the gift is to be practical or entertaining, and the amount you want to spend.
  • Are you planning on a major expense, such as, a new car, a down payment on a mortgage, or a vacation abroad? Or something along the lines of dorm furniture, an electronic device or an item of clothing for school or the workplace?
  • A television, camera, kitchen appliances, luggage, jewelry and watches, as well as money, are great gifts for grads regardless of their next step in life.
  • From one grad to another, one of many really cool gift ideas is a digital photo frame that captures memories of people you met, places you visited, sports you played, parties you went to, and so on.
  • Whatever you decide, make it personal and, most importantly, show how much you really care.

Celebrate achieving this important goal and look forward to an exciting future ahead


If you found the above tips and suggestions on the art of gift giving useful for researching graduation gift ideas, please take a look at more information we have prepared regarding other important dates on the calendar. Some of these include birthdays, Valentines Day, Mothers Day, gifts for the teacher and, last but by no means least, Christmas. Links to these pages are to the left, under the heading Occasions To Give as well as at the very bottom of this page.

We’d also like to take this opportunity and invite you to take a look at some of the charities we are supporting. In the left hand column you can click on the appropriate links under the Help A Cause heading. And, because we believe in providing great up-to-date, quality information, we are constantly adding pages about topics related directly to the work they do.

Under the heading Glass - Our Medium we include a brief history of glass and glass making techniques since this is the material we use for our own exclusive pendant designs. Fascinating reading. Do take a look.

For a quick glance at our fundraising glass pendants, you’ll find them arranged in themes under the heading Pendants Pop.  We currently show hearts, animals, nature and stars, with more coming soon. You’ll be able to appreciate the creative process involved in designing them since each group has a close connection to the non-profit it supports. Many are one-of-a-kind and can only be acquired here.

And, of course, you can view our complete collection of pendants together on a single page in our Gift Catalog, which is under the heading Shop. We hope you will be inspired. After all, the slogan which forms part of our logo is our goal: “every pendant, every time, helps a cause.”
