Another school year has come and gone, but this time it's different because you have a college graduate on your hands! You’re probably feeling overwhelmingly proud of the achievements and accomplishments your graduate has made over the past four years and now you want to do something to celebrate them.
High school graduation was easy -- you gave them money for textbooks, new electronics, college living starter packs, and whatever else they might have needed to begin college. But college graduation is different and sometimes challenging. This is because you need to go bigger and think outside of the box. You want to do something to make your graduate feel special, because, afterall -- college graduation is a huge milestone in the life of any student!
If you’re not sure what to get the college graduate you know, we’ve got you covered with personalised and creative gifts to celebrate and make your graduate feel special. We will look at school specific diploma frames for your Clarion University graduate -- as well as other meaningful gift ideas like jewelry and goodies they can eat! Take a look through for inspiration on what to purchase for your college graduate.
Show Off Their Achievements
A great gift option for your recent graduate is a diploma frame. This is mostly because they’ll probably want one anyway -- but they’re expensive which can be an issue for young graduates just starting off their career. So, you can take that obstacle out of the way and reward them with the diploma frame they deserve!
Another great thing about diploma frames is they are great for guys and girls alike. There’s no struggling with deciding whether or not you think they’ll like it -- because they will LOVE it and appreciate the gesture.
This might also be a good option if you know your graduate is headed directly for the workforce after graduation. If they are getting an office space at work, they’ll be looking for all sorts of things to decorate it with. One of the definite things they’ll want is to be able to hang and admire their diploma -- since it’s most likely what landed them the job in the first place. Even if they aren’t going to an office -- they might want to hang it in their home or their home office!
The best thing about the diploma frame above is that it’s decked out with Clarion colors -- blue, navy, and gold. Your graduate will love the school spirit in this frame! A great bonus is the economical price, so you can give a significant gift for little cost.
We’re loving this diploma frame for its dark features and sophisticated presentation. It’s beautiful to look at in itself. It features a hardwood frame with a semi-gloss black cherry stain as well as a black matboard. The diploma sits comfortably inside the acid and lignin free as well as neutral pH matboard and mountboard for protection and preservation. The diploma is surrounded by a gold border for an added pop. The matboard features the school’s name at the bottom, “Clarion University,” in gold foil. At the top it features the Clarion University seal in a 22kt gold-plated medallion.
This frame will effortlessly pair with other decor in the home or office! The black matboard and cherry frame will help it match anything you would want it to.

Each of these frames comes guaranteed with easy insert -- so you won’t need tools or to send off the diploma. Each frame is measured to fit an 8.5 x 11 inch diploma.
They Will Picture Their Day Forever
Don’t want to commit to getting them a diploma frame? Here’s another graduation gift to help your grad save their favorite picture of their big day as well as their school’s tassel.

They will no doubt love this meaningful gift no matter where they decide to place it. You can take it a step farther and make it easier for them by adding your favorite picture of you and your graduate to the frame before giving it to them.
Give a Meaningful Gift They Can Wear Forever
Jewelry is a great gift for a college graduate because it is something they will be able to wear forever as a memory of their accomplishment. You can also pick out pieces with special meanings that relate to their transition from college to adult life. They will love that the piece relates to good wishes and success for the future.
