Middle school, high school, college—all graduations look a bit different this year. And rather than let them pass by without a celebration, why not tweak what a traditional graduation party looks like?
Whether you’re a parent, teacher, or administrator, here are a few graduation celebration and favor ideas for 2020, including tips and tricks for making this a celebration grads won’t ever forget.
The big trend right now is drive-by graduation celebrations. Basically, you gather a caravan of celebrants to pass by the grads’ houses to honk and cheer them on. Adding custom signs and balloons to cars makes it even more special, along with passing out signs to the grads to place in their front yards.
A few graduation favor ideas for your caravan:
Make something grads will hang in their room or take to college with them to commemorate their big achievement. There are a few ways to gather photos from their classmates:
Once you have the photos, there are endless options for creating the collage—scan and create a digital book, paste onto poster board, or add to custom photo frame.
In-person yearbook signing is sometimes the highlight of the end-of-year activities, and there’s no reason to cancel that now! Place the yearbook outside the house on a table paired with a jar of personalized graduation pens that classmates can use and take with them.
For these graduation favors, we recommend Contour Pens because they’re affordable and come with free graduation designs.
Graduation dinners are cancelled, which hurts both restaurants and grads. Reach out to local restaurants to see if they can offer a discount on pick-up or delivery meals so grads can get a good meal at home with family. While they may not be breaking bread with their classmates, there’s something nice about knowing you’re all sharing a similar meal. Bonus points if you do a Zoom dinner with classmates!
Whether you drop them off at grads’ houses or mail these graduation favor ideas, they’re sure to be appreciated.
We’re so proud of you, class of 2020! This is an unprecedented time and you deserve to be celebrated, and we hope these graduation celebration ideas and grad favors do just that.
