There is not a truer saying that time flies when you have kids. For some strange reason, life seems to go by in the blink of an eye when you are a parent. Of course, this can be a bittersweet experience. While we have had the pleasure of watching our offspring turn into fine specimens of adulthood, it is incredibly difficult to watch them flee the nest and become independent.
It is coming to the time of year where our children are leaving school and graduating. Can you believe that it is that time of year already? Naturally, our children are excited about leaving school and graduating. Their hard work and studious attitude has paid off and they finally ready to go into the big wide world of work as fully fledged adults.
It is at this time that we often want to commemorate their special day with a gift. Many parents buy graduation gifts to reward their child for the hard work and dedication that they have put in over the last few years. The thing is, finding the perfect graduation gift can be difficult.
Personalised gifts are a great way to commemorate their special day and are the perfect keepsake for years to come. Leavers hoodies, adorned with their leaving year and alma mater is a great way to ensure that they keep the memory of university or college with them for years to come. Obviously, they are unlikely to forget one of the greatest times in their life, but commemorating the special occasion with a personalised gift will ensure that they remember their special days for many years to come. Who knows, in time, they may pass it on to their children as a family heirloom.
Personalised gifts really show your child that you are proud of them and that you are pleased with their achievements. Buying a shop bought gift, in short, can seem a little lazy. A personalised gift is a truly unique way of showing someone that you have put a lot of thought into their present, as well being able to show your love and affection in a quirky way.
Personalising the gift with little anecdotes, sayings, funny things that happened and other quirky memories is a fantastic way to commemorate their time at college or university and is certain to be a sure fire hit with your kids. After all, they don’t want to forget their time at college and neither do you.
What could be more thrilling than a personalised gift, for the post-graduation festivities. You never know, you could attending their final bar crawl with them, even if it is in spirit and in the form of the clothing that you have purchased for them.
Saying it with cards is rather old hat. The key to the perfect graduation gift is to get personalised. A true representation of your love and affection, as well as being quirky and unique enough to hold the former students attention.
Say it with personalised gifts and you will win the prize for best parent.
