Graduation is always a momentous occasion to celebrate, as it commemorates one’s hard work and the start of a new phase of life. However, with the recent events in the world, countless graduation ceremonies have had to be cancelled or replaced with online ‘ceremonies’.
It’s definitely going to feel a little disappointing to have your graduation happen without the full-blown festivities. Yet, it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t still take the chance to celebrate and mark this huge milestone in life!
If any of your friends are graduating soon, why not take stock of some ideas to send some good vibes their way and hand them your heartiest congratulations from your home to theirs?
1. Send a gift
In this day and age, you can find delivery services for almost anything! So, you won’t have a lack of options if you wish to gift your friend or loved one a special item for their graduation.
A thoughtful gift pack is also something you can arrange for quite easily. It could be anything from their favourite food, or a care package of products for them to pamper themselves at home.
2. Prepare a video montage
Graduation is a time to look back and see how far one has grown over the past few years! If you are in the graduating cohort, why not gift your class or group of friends a special video montage looking back on all the tears and joys you’ve shared?
Make a collection of your favourite photo and moments and put them into a video slideshow for a simple montage. You can even caption them for added effect, and weave in video messages from classmates and teachers.
It can mean a lot to those watching to reminisce the time spent together and appreciate the experiences and growth they’ve undergone. Even while apart, you can celebrate the path that you’ve walked, and make a heartfelt wish for better days for all the graduating students!
3. Have a virtual party
You’re sure to have walked away with some friends from school, and what better way is there to celebrate than with a party together! Although you can’t gather physically right now, you can definitely do so with the help of technology.
Take your pick of video-conferencing platform and gather your best buds online! Armed with your favourite foods and some games, you can still enjoy an evening of incredible fun and laughter through a virtual gathering.
Spending some time just chilling out, recalling your memories of school, and sharing your hopes for the future will be a nice way to close the chapter on this stretch of your educational journey.
Although the global pandemic has put a halt to a lot of things, it doesn’t mean you can’t still celebrate life’s special moments in other means. With these ideas, hopefully you can still bring a smile to your graduating friends, and have a happy graduation!
