Traditionally, the honoree is celebrated by family and friends, stuffed silly with home cooked meals and offered graduation gifts at a graduation party. Very often graduation gifts are offered as a token of congratulations, or meant to bestow luck on the recent graduate for his future and career.
Typically at a party, guests offer graduation gifts to commemorate the tremendous contribution to society and duty a young person has fulfilled in the journey to adulthood. For several years, the graduate endured endless lectures, early morning waking and hundreds of term papers only to wake up one day and realize that life has truly only just begun.
One of the best ways to recognize the graduate in your life is to throw a party in their honor. Occasionally, graduation gifts are also meant as tokens of remembrance, featuring perhaps pictures of the recent grad in his prime, after hours of studying or just waking up in the morning. Such thoughtful gifts are bound to inspire laughter and perhaps even a few tears.
Traditionally a celebration in honor of a recent graduation includes members of the graduates immediate family and closest friends.
