Finishing graduate school is an important accomplishment for psychology students. Not only does it indicate that they have gone beyond the basic level of their education, but it also opens more doors to possible jobs. Money is always welcome, but a more personalised gift that relates to the student's chosen profession is even better. Treat the masters holders to a gift that is customised for them.

Literary gifts

Giving a psychology student a subscription to "Psychology Today" is a gift that keeps giving. The magazine is released six times a year, with one-year and two-year subscriptions available. If the student is interested in a specific type of psychology, look for an academic journal that details recent studies and advances in that area. Depending on the student's major, opt for "The Journal of Abnormal Psychology," "Journal of Cross-Cultural Psychology," "Journal of Child Psychology," "Journal of Virtual Environments" or "Journal of Research in Personality." A gift of antique psychology textbooks or books detailing the history of psychology are suitable for students continuing their education. The books are interesting and can be displayed in a student's future office.

Personalised gifts

Purchase personalised or customised gifts that students can use now and in the future. A pen and pencil set is something they will use if they continue their studies and something they will use when they are actually working. If the student has a job lined up, then opt for a business card holder or personalised money clip, with a quote from Sigmund Freud engraved on it. A clock or a framed print of their favourite psychologist/psychiatrist is something else they can display.

Novelty gifts

You'll find dozens of psychology gag gifts, both homemade and mass produced, for psychology graduates. The Tickle Me Freud doll is a stuffed doll that resembles Sigmund Freud. When you squeeze the doll, it giggles and shakes. A T-shirt with, "I'd Rather be Practicing Psychology" printed on the front is something the student can wear when out with friends. Coffee mugs, mouse pads and other items also come with phrases on the front, such as, "Eat Pray Psychology" or "Eat Sleep Practice Psychology." Or choose a small notepad with a novelty phrase on it, such as one that says, "Notes From Myself."
