    Seeing as how I made a christmas gifts thread years ago, I thought I might as well make one for Graduation gifts.

    Seeing as how the teens of TFW might be graduating soon, I thought it'd be nice to share what our loved ones gave us for finally getting our diplomas :) 

    Although my graduation is on the 7th of June, my parents gave me my graduation gift early: an Iphone! I've been wanting one forever, and my parents finally gave me one :) . I also got $130 from Uncles and aunts.

    What have you ever received as a graduation gift?

    For High School, the family of a good friend of mine at the time gave me a Graduating Snoopy plush. Since Snoopy is the greatest dog ever, it was greatly appreciated and I still have it today :D 

    For College my parents took me out to a very nice Italian restaurant, where I had the best Calamari of my life!

    I've technically "graduated" this weekend, but don't officially graduate until the end of June when I finish writing my diploma exams. I'm probably gonna get a laptop to help me in post secondary education.

    I got my engineering diploma earlier this month and my parents bought me a 3DS as a gift. I wasn't really expecting it at all but I didn't argue either.

    Money from my relatives mainly.

    My parents said they're going to fix up my room, get me a new computer desk and a new computer chair, some more shelves to put my stuff on (Figures, books etc.), and also put money towards a new Air Brush! :D

    I just graduated High School. I didn't get anything; we're too poor to be buying expensive gifts like phones or computers. It doesn't really matter anyway, graduation isn't a big deal to me.

    I didn't get anything when I graduated High School either. I think I got some Star Wars figures. My niece got a Lexus when she graduated. I'm totally jealous.

    My family is quite generous when it comes to money, so I'll probably get 25-30 dollars from my aunt and grandparents. That may not seem too much to others, but I'm graduating GRADE 8.

    I've mainly just gotten money so far, although the grand total is a fair sized chunk of change somewhere between $300-$400 I think. I'm also getting a brand-new laptop before College and I think Figma Lynette Bishop somehow got into the mix (although she sure as hell is not going to College with me)

    Back when I graduated I got a phone. Not an Iphone, a cell phone, or even a cordless phone. I got a normal, corded phone.
