Finding the perfect gift for a graduation can be a challenge, and when the graduate is a man, the challenge can be even greater. There are many options for graduation gifts, from personalised keepsakes to useful items that will help them as they go out into the world.

Engraved Fortune Cookie

Engraved gifts are great keepsakes, allowing the giver to add a personal message to the recipient that will always be there for them to read. A fortune cookie is a symbol of good fortune to come for the man who has just graduated, and there can even be a special message inside the cookie bringing wishes of good luck.

Themed Gift Box

Giving a gift box full of essential items the man will need after graduation is a useful idea that will be much appreciated. If he is graduating from high school, create a box full of things he will need when he goes to college, like laundry soap, a folding hamper, bus passes, a cookbook and treats. Or, if he has graduated from college, and will be entering the workforce, get items that relate to the job he will be going into along with some general items he may need like an alarm clock, coffee vouchers and pens.

Personalised Pen & Pencil Set

Whether he has just graduated from high school, or is graduating from a college or university, a personalised set of pen and pencils will always be treasured. He will be able to use the pen or pencil either in college or in his new career, and will be reminded of the thoughtfulness of the gift every time he uses them.The sets can be wooden, all the way up to stainless steel.

Engraved Watch

A watch will be a necessity in the real world, and having a good watch that has been engraved with best wishes for his future is something any man would enjoy. If he is going into a college course or already graduating from one that is taking him into a new line of work, find a watch set that is specific to that trade. If he is becoming a firefighter, for example, get a watch set that has a firefighter emblem on it along with the personalised engraving.

Photo Book

Another great gift idea for a man who is graduating is a photo book. These books can be created easily online, with pictures from the time he has been in his school or course. Ask some of his friends for pictures they have which could be used, and put them all together into a treasured keepsake album.
