If you're looking for a graduation gift that will be kept and enjoyed for years to come then you should consider giving a graduation picture frame. There are graduation frames to fit almost any budget, and there are many selections from which to choose.

The most considerate graduation gift is one that reflects the interests and decorative style of the graduate. With the wide variety of graduation picture frames available, you will be able to select a gift that suits the graduate and will be used for many years.

This may seem strange to you since you're looking for a graduation gift, but avoid frames that have the word "graduation" or "graduate" on the frame if you want the frame to be used for a while. Also avoid frames that have tassels, mortarboards or diplomas decorating the frame. These items are appropriate for a graduation, but once graduation is over the frame likely won't be used to frame other important pictures as the graduate moves through his or her life.

What kind of graduation frame will stand the test of time? Here are the most common types of graduation picture frames:

1. Graduation Tassel Frame

Graduation tassel frames showcase just that - the graduation tassel. These frames come with space for a picture and next to that a slot for the graduation tassel. This is a great way to keep the tassel protected and displayed in a more stylish manner than hanging it from a rear-view mirror. A graduation tassel frame is a great for someone who wants a specific graduation keepsake to remind them of their graduation day.

2. Graduation Diploma Photo Frame

Many graduates, especially of higher education, choose to display their diploma on the wall of their home or office. A graduation diploma frame is a practical gift that will let the graduate proudly display their accomplishment on the wall.

3. Shadow Box Picture Frame

There is so much more to a graduate's school years than the diploma.  A shadow box frame is the perfect gift for a graduate for showcasing scholastic as well as athletic honors and awards. Shadow box frames come in depths up to 1 ¾ inch, so there is plenty of room for displaying a variety of keepsakes. If more room is needed, custom shadowbox frames can be made.

4. Scrapbook Frame

Does your graduate enjoy creating scrapbook pages? If so, scrapbook frames are the perfect gift for a female graduate. Every big school achievement (up to and including graduation) can be proudly made into a scrapbook page and displayed in a scrapbook frame. Scrapbook frames are a great way to share memories for all to enjoy. You can even personalize your page with signatures and messages from friends which makes a very special scrapbook page keepsake.

5. Collage Photo Frames

A collage frame is another great gift idea for a female graduate. Collages are created to display favorite photos and memories and are usually enjoyed more by women.  Collages can be personalized by adding a personalized mat to your collage frame. Friends or family can write messages or notes on the frame's mat to make the frame a more meaningful keepsake. One reason collage photo frames are such a fun gift is because the photos can be easily changed at any time to create a completely new photo display.

6. High Quality Picture Frames

If you are looking for a graduation gift that can be handed down for generations as a family heirloom, select a high quality picture frame. Not sure what that would be? Quality frames are sterling silver picture frames, silver plated frames, pewter frames and classic wood frames. These classic photo frames can be appreciated for years because they can go with almost any picture and style of decor.

Quality picture frames come in a wide variety of price ranges to fit any budget. You should be able to easily find a quality picture frame in a price you want to pay. These precious metal and solid wood picture frames can be engraved with a special message or just the graduate's name and graduation date to commemorate their special day. But, if you want your graduation gift to display a variety of special picture's throughout the graduate's life, then you probably want to skip the engraving.

The next time you're looking for a special graduation gift consider buying a quality photo frame that can be used for years. Instead of spending money on a gift that will become dated or discarded, give a graduation gift that can be appreciated for years. High quality photo frames are a thoughtful gift that gives the graduate a reminder of their accomplishment and shows them how proud you are of their achievement.
