A milestone like this doesn't happen often — and in this moment that is meant to be honored and remembered, nothing celebrates their journey quite like high school grad gifts that preserve the story. That's why we craft our family of photo goods with the utmost intention, taking no shortcuts as we design meaningful artifacts you will be proud to share with your new graduate. After all, the best high school graduation gifts should say it all, today and every day, for many years to come. With this is our mantra, we source our gifts for high school seniors with the future in mind. After all, much of their story is yet to come and it is up to all of us to do our part to preserve its setting. That means using only those materials that leave the smallest footprint and crafting them close to home, right here in the USA.
It all starts with materials like reclaimed wood — whether it be our reclaimed mountain beetle pine or reclaimed walnut. The latter is sourced from the wastewood piles of the conventional furniture industry, turning what would otherwise be discarded into meaningful artifacts of the utmost quality. The former is a love song to the Colorado forests we call home, using only the dying trees that have been ravaged by this invasive species. These innovative materials come together with 100% recycled paper, milled by Mohawk, the longest-running family-owned paper producers in the United States, whom we choose to work with for their unrelenting commitment to quality, sustainable practices, and renewable energy.
This is just part of the story behind our senior graduation gifts — but we know the one that really matters is the one that marks the pages. So we've even put together a list of our most creative high school graduation gift ideas to help you get started. May it move you beyond the blank page, for a gift they'll hold close — no matter where they go from here.
