Graduation Gift Ideas
Posted on August 25 2022
Be it college or university - it seems as though every summer we’re being contacted by another family member who seems to have grown up suspiciously quickly! Before we know it, we’ve been invited to yet another graduation ceremony.
We know that it’s hard to find the perfect gift - but look no further! Leave behind the last-minute faffing and take a look at our beautiful tree gift guide.
Not only do our gorgeous tree gifts symbolise growth, knowledge and the magic of life - they will create memories that last forever.
This beautiful plant symbolises wisdom and success and what could be more fitting after completing a course or degree? Gifting a Fig Tree offers the chance to wish someone endless years of wisdom and success in everything that they accomplish. It can grow happily in a sunny, sheltered garden, a cool conservatory or somewhere bright indoors and will even produce delicious fruit for years to come.
Well known for its presence in both contemporary and traditional art - the Cherry Tree symbolises good fortune and future happiness. Its pale cream flowers will blossom each summer, and is said to represent the beauty of life and the journey of renewal. The Cherry tree will happily thrive in any garden, balcony or cool conservatory and can be clipped into a variety of shapes using topiary, a perfect way to show off creativity to the neighbours!
SILVER BIRCH TREE
Treasured for its silver-white bark and delicate leaves on a crown of arched branches, this magical tree will thrive in any garden. The Silver Birch Tree's symbolism is meaningful for any graduate as it symbolises new beginnings and protection. At the end of a chapter, this silver-barked tree will beautifully mark an era of happy memories and as it grows, will be specially adored as a symbol of protection for the next exciting chapter.
Also known as the Tree of Love, in ancient mythology the Wild Apple Tree symbolises knowledge, immortality and future happiness. The Apple tree’s historical roots are deep in Greek mythology (the famous golden apples stolen by Hercules in the Garden of Hesperides), and the infamous story of Sir Isaac Newton - with an apple inspiring him to formulate his theory of gravity.
