If you're looking for a graduation gift that will be kept and enjoyed for years to come then you should consider giving a graduation picture frame. You can find graduation frames that will fit almost any budget and are available in a wide variety of styles, colors, shapes and sizes. The most thoughtful graduation gift is one that reflects the interests of the graduate. With the wide variety of graduation picture frames available, you will be able to select a gift that suits the graduate and will be used for many years.
This may seem odd to you, since you are purchasing a graduation gift, but avoiding frames that have the word "graduation" or "graduate" engraved on them will give the frame added life. Also avoid frames that have tassels, mortarboards or diplomas decorating the frame. These items are appropriate for a graduation, but once graduation is over the frame likely won't be used to frame other important pictures as the graduate moves through his or her life.
What kind of graduation frame will stand the test of time? Here are the most common types of graduation picture frames:
1. Graduation Tassel Picture Frame
Graduation tassel frames showcase just that- a picture of the graduate and a place to display the tassel. These frames come with space for a picture and next to that a slot for the graduation tassel. This is a great way to keep the tassel protected and displayed in a more stylish manner than hanging it from a rear view mirror. Knowing what is important to the graduate to save as a keepsake of their graduation day will determine if a graduation tassel frame is the right gift.
2. Graduation Diploma Frame
Many graduates, especially of higher education, choose to display their diploma on the wall of their home or office. A graduation diploma frame is a useful gift that will allow the graduate to display their accomplishment proudly on the wall.
3. Shadow Box Picture Frame
There is so much more to a graduate's school years than the diploma. A shadow box frame is the perfect gift for a graduate for showcasing scholastic as well as athletic honors and awards. Shadow box frames come in depths up to 1 Â¾ inch, so there is plenty of room for displaying a variety of keepsakes. If you want to display larger objects in your frame, a custom shadow box frame can be made to fit any dimension you need.
4. Scrapbook Frame
Does your graduate enjoy creating scrapbook pages? If they do, scrapbook picture frames are the perfect gift for a female graduate. Each school accomplishment, up to and including graduation, can be turned into a scrapbook page and displayed in a scrapbook frame. Scrapbook picture frames are a wonderful way to share memories with friends and family. You can even personalize your page with signatures and messages from friends which makes a very special scrapbook page keepsake.
5. Collage Photo Frames
A collage picture frame is another wonderful gift for a female graduate. Collages are more popular among women and are a great way to display a variety of favorite photos and memories all in one frame. Collages can be personalized by adding a personalized mat to your collage frame. Friends or family can write notes to the graduate on the frame's mat. One reason collage photo frames are such a fun gift is because the photos can be easily changed at any time to create a completely new photo display.
6. High Quality Photo Frames
If you are looking for a graduation gift that can be handed down for generations as a family heirloom, select a high quality picture frame. Don't know what that would be? Examples of quality frames are sterling silver picture frames, pewter frames, silver plated frames and solid wood frames. These classic frames can be enjoyed for years because they complement any photo or decor.
Quality picture frames come in a wide variety of price ranges to fit any budget. You should be able to find a quality frame in a price you can afford. These precious metal and solid wood picture frames can be engraved with a special message or just the graduate's name and graduation date to commemorate their special day. But, if you want your graduation gift to display a variety of special picture's throughout the graduate's life, then you probably want to skip the engraving.
The next time you are looking for a special graduation gift consider a high quality picture frame. Instead of spending money on a gift that will become dated and possibly discarded, give a gift that can be enjoyed for a lifetime. High quality picture frames are a thoughtful gift that tells the graduate how special they are to you and how proud you are of their accomplishments.
