Spring has almost sprung and and graduation season is just around the corner. Do you have a child that will be celebrating a graduation from elementary or high school, University or College in a few short months? It’s time to start thinking about how to mark that milestone event! Here are a few gift ideas to mark such an occasion.
Photo books are a wonderful personalized keepsake, here are a few ideas on how to set one up.
Your Life in Review
This is look back at the life and times of the graduate. You can use pictures that represent some highlights of your child’s life through the years. School events, birthday parties, holidays, vacations, sports teams, performances or those everyday photos that bring a smile to your face. Scan some report cards, art work or a photograph of a project or favourite toy and add them into the book. Be sure to leave some space for some text for a special message to the graduate.
Graduation Day and Party book
This will require a little help from your friends. Gather photos from all of the graduation events; prom, the graduation ceremony and the after party. Create a small book to remember the special day.
If the preference is for a digital format rather that a book, you can create a slideshow.
Gather your photos and pair them with music for a retrospective review of their life. It’s also easy to add a voiceover a message to the graduate. If you have any audio clips from their childhood, that would make a fun addition to the show.
What ever you decide, a personalized gift is very meaningful and is sure to be a hit! It will always be treasured by the recipient. Take some time to plan your project now, whether you plan to do it yourself or get some help from a professional.
