Gift ideas for your teenage girlfriend’s graduation

Graduation gift under $100

Edible arrangements are popular and for good reason/ They look beautiful, are more original than giving her a regular bouquet of flowers, and, of course, you can eat them! Yum. They feature chocolate and fruits, all in a beautiful bouquet she can munch on later. She might even share with you if you’re a good boy.

How about getting her this Congratulations Bouquet with Dipped Strawberries? It’s great for a graduation, featuring a medley of fruit truffles, gourmet chocolate dipped strawberries, pineapple stars, and a ton of other fruits, as well as a group of grad balloons!

​But, then again, you might still be in school yourself and not have a lot of money to spend on your gal. In this case, you can come up with free or cheap date ideas that will come across as clever and a good “hoorah” for celebrating her graduation. Here are a few ideas:

  • ​After the graduation ceremony ends, take her to a great spot you’ve scoped out already for watching the sunset. You romantic devil you.
  • Set up her favorite movie on Netflix at home and have her beloved snacks ready to go on the table. She’ll love having a movie night with you, and you can enjoy the cuddling for about two hours.
  • Plan a picnic for her at the park, including packing foods she loves and a soft blanket so you two can lay out on the grass. Organize it all for her and then tell her it’s all in the name of her special occasion. Be sure to whisper in her ear that you’re proud of her.

Now that your special girl’s a grad, she’ll want to explore the world, and who can blame her? Get her out of the stuffy library and into nature with a comfort bike designed for women who want to ride leisurely on pavement or smooth trails (versus a mountain or road bike). 

The Northwoods Pomona Women’s Cruiser Bike is a great choice, in mint green and silver or pink. It is made for riders 5’3″ to 6″ tall and is made solid with an aluminum frame. We like comfort bikes like this one for its soft, wide seat, high handlebars for riding upright easier, and shock-absorbing seat. Your bae will appreciate that you took the time to pick a bike specially designed for women and enjoying a fun, active lifestyle with you.

If a sporty gift isn’t what you have in mind, though, jewelry is always welcome, especially if it has a special meaning behind it. For example, this lovely 14k gold pendant comes with solid gold or gold filled chain in your choice of length and you can pick the name, initials, date, college major, or other details for the Etsy company to engrave on it for you. Make the graduation with a necklace she will cherish and think of you every day as she wears it.

Splurge on your babe with an amazing piece of jewelry that will have her friends salivating at the mouth. She will love showing her gal pals this Blue Topaz with White and Champagne-Colored Diamond Drop Pendant Necklace from renowned designer Badgley Mischka.

There’s a good reason this design duo has been named one of Vogue‘s Top 10 American Designers, dressing the biggest stars like Katy Perry, Julia Roberts, and Madonna. Not only will the necklace look amazing on the neck of a grad but also can become a family treasure to pass down from generation to generation over the years.

Another piece of jewelry that is perfect to give at graduation is the gift of time, specifically in the form of a lovely Shinola Bracelet Watch. “The Birdy” has a pretty design​, featuring a round, sapphire crystal face with a slender linked bracelet. We like this particular one because you can simply go with her to the local Nordstrom to get any extra links in the bracelet removed, so it fits her perfectly, without having to skulk around behind the scenes to figure out her wrist size.
