Graduation Gift Ideas

You know the old say, “Time flies when you’re having fun”. It seems like just yesterday that I became a mom for the first time. I was blessed with this perfect and amazing baby girl that I loved more than anything else in the world.

It’s hard to believe that she has now grown into a beautiful, strong, and sometimes goofy woman. keanu6A woman who will soon be graduating from nursing. keanu5A woman who will soon be getting married and starting her own family. ringA woman who I am proud to call my daughter.  keanu3

Graduation season will be here before we know it, and it is an exciting and emotional time for students and families. It’s the payoff for years of hard work and sacrifice. As graduates move forward in life, they will look back on their college days with extreme pride.

My daughter, like so many other upcoming graduates has worked very hard getting to where she is. She has put in long hours of study, she has worked hard to pay her way through college and not one time did giving up ever cross her mind.  

I looked at several different graduation gifts, but in the end I always came back to Church Hill Classics. Church Hill Classics is a professional framing company that helps graduates and families preserve and showcase those hard-earned diplomas with officially licensed frames. They are the company behind all those stunning diploma frames most of have noticed in a variety of offices.12900009_10209387414021476_1716594399_n

I am sure you’re probably thinking, why a diploma frame? I know it isn’t the most exciting gift in the world, but it’s one of the best college graduation gifts I can think of.  Grads and their families work so hard and invest so much into earning a diploma. After all of the time and money spent earning that degree, no diploma should end up in a drawer, forgotten about, or even destroyed!

Church Hill Classics is celebrating their 25th year anniversary this year. That’s 25 years of creating these amazing and beautiful college diploma frames that I’m so proud to gift to my daughter this year. It just so happens that they have Appalachian State University diploma frames that are perfect for her. Not only can she proudly display her diploma and her tassel, but also the college she earned it at.DSC_0213
