Graduations are often an underrated occasion — whether it is to celebrate a university or college graduation, this accomplishment often can only arrive after years of hard work and dedication.
As most of us know, graduation gifts are often linked to bouquets of flowers. While those can be good options, especially to brighten up their special day, it could be something that is repetitive (how often we have seen graduates having trouble holding on to all the flowers they received?), or it could not be as lasting as something that is practical in which they can enjoy even after their big day.
If you are looking for unique graduation gifts that are memorable and impactful, here are some alternative graduation gift ideas you can explore to celebrate your loved ones’ special milestone.
1. Healthy, Nourishing Gifts
After cramming for finals or long hours of studying and working on final year projects, our dear graduate will most likely be feeling worn out and exhausted.
Hence, a good practical and thoughtful gift is something that can nourish their body and minds and bring them back in the pink of health.
Whether it is vitamins, supplements or home remedies, a gift curated with health products is one that expresses your thoughts and cares towards their wellbeing.
Our Take Good Care Gift Box: Autumn Breeze comes with a collection of wholesome and cosy items that feels like a warm hug for someone who is in need of some TLC (tender loving care). The kit includes a USB-Powered Volcanic Humidifier, Premium Healthy Mixed Nuts, Ginger Black Sugar Cubes and Vitamin C Jelly Cubes for the new graduate to feel loved and taken care of.
Another good option as a graduation gift for girls is the Wildflower Wonder: Clover Gift Set which includes items like Organic Energising Tea Bags, Nourishing Snow Fungus Drinks, a Cosy Scented Candle, Epserat Botanical Beverages by BHB Health and a Mini Preserved Flower Bouquet to top it off.
2. A Gift to Kickstart Their New Adventure
If you know the new graduate well, it's worth a shot to get them a gift that can equip them better towards their new journey in life.
It could be something like a housewarming gift if you know they will be moving out and living on their own. Our Relax and Pamper Gift Set comes in both Halal and Non-Halal options, and can be the ideal luxury graduation gift for someone who is looking to move into their own place.

3. A Gift of Good Sleep
Transitioning from burning the midnight oil to study for their exams, to now worries and stress about stepping into adulthood and carving out their new career path, sleep could be something easily dismissed from our dear young graduate’s life.
But we all know how much difference a good night’s sleep can make, so another great alternative university graduation gift is a gift that can improve their sleep quality. Get the Sweet Dreams Gift Set which comes in both For Him and For Her options as a practical gift to remind the enthusiastic graduate to take time to slow down and rest.
