Graduation Gifts for Friends- Books!!

Graduation day is a day of celebration of an exciting future ahead. It is a day, which rewards a person's hard work and gives him energy to face the world. Thus the graduation day brings along much excitement and joy, which needs to be preserved for the rest of your life. A nice option of making this day all the more special is giving out nice graduation gifts to the graduating person.

Looking for gift ideas for high school or college graduation? A book is an ideal gift for graduates because it helps them reflect on where they have been and where they are going. A book can be sentimental, practical and entertaining. If you need ideas for the perfect book to give for an upcoming high school or college graduation, look no further.

1) Oh, the Places You'll Go by Dr. Seuss
This inspirational picture book reappears on the bestsellers lists every year around graduation. Oh, the Places You'll Go has great illustrations and is the perfect book for sending graduates into a new phase of life.

2) Freakonomics by Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner
Freakonomics is an especially good graduation gift for anyone interested in economics or social issues. Freakonomics will inspire graduates to apply their knowledge in practical ways and think outside the box.

3) What Color Is Your Parachute or What Color Is Your Parachute for Teens
What Color Is Your Parachute by Richard Nelson Bolles has been THE job searching book to use for more than a decade. Know a college graduate who is still not sure how to apply his or her major in the real world? This graduation gift may be more practical than glamorous, but may be appreciated more in the end.

4) Saucepans & the Single Girl by Jinx Morgan and Judy Perry
Saucepans & the Single Girl was originally released in 1965. An updated version was released in 2006 and would make a delightful gift for any gal starting out on her own after graduation. Saucepans & the Single Girl combines practical advice with humorous commentary that will connect women across generations.

5) Do What You Are by Paul D. Tieger and Barbara Barron-Tieger
