Looking For The Perfect Graduation Present? Try A Monogrammed Memory Chest

Graduation season is upon us and that means it’s time to start thinking about gifts. If cash is too impersonal for you and you want to give the graduate something that will last a lifetime, you can’t go wrong with a personalized memory chest that has been monogrammed with the graduate’s initials. These solid wood creations are the perfect way to celebrate all the hard work grads have put in and serve as a reminder of the accomplishments for the rest of their lives.

Commemorate A Milestone

Graduation is a special milestone in life. It represents the culmination of time and effort put in toward achieving our dreams. What better way to commemorate this milestone than with a personalized storage chest or keepsake box? Personalization options range from the simple to the complex and include:

Names or monograms
School names
Graduation date
A special poem or inspirational quote

Beyond simply including the recipient’s name on the box, consider including a special poem or inspirational quote on the underside of the box lid. Grads will appreciate being able to look at your words again and again when they need comfort or inspiration.

Looking Toward The Future

Graduation isn’t just a time to celebrate the past. It’s a time to look forward to the future, full of hopes, dreams and goals. The most thoughtful gifts encourage these dreams. Some gifts encourage in entirely practical ways. The gift of money for example, is often used to help new grads start the next chapter of their lives whether that is more schooling or a first job or a first apartment. While practical and helpful, cash just doesn’t have the emotional connection that so many gift-givers are looking to convey.

Another common graduation gift is a book. Books are typically thoughtfully picked out by the gift-giver to aid the graduate in the next chapter of his or her life. They last a long time and very often contain a special message written inside for the graduate; something that he or she can refer to as he or she progresses through life. Books are easily stored or transported, which is another reason they remain popular.

Personalized memory chests meet all of these parameters as well but take their usefulness and longevity a step further. Memory chests are a physical representation of hope for the future. They are long lasting and practical, conveying your expectation that the grad will have a long life, overflowing with treasures to be stored inside the box. If you choose a solid wood chest or keepsake box, if will last for generations. In some families where it is tradition for children to attend the same schools as their parents, a memory chest engraved with the school slogan or name that is passed down from generation to generation has even more meaning.

The fact that these storage boxes can hold items as small as rings to as large as varsity jackets or blankets emblazoned with the school mascot makes them one of the most versatile presents you could give a graduate. It is this versatility that makes memory chests the perfect gift to grow with the graduate. What better way to celebrate life’s next steps and look toward the future than with a gift that grows along with your grad?
