Graduation Gifts for 2017

Give the the perfect Graduation Gifts this year...

It's nearly that time of year again - mortarboards flying though the air, Prosecco flowing and gifts being given to celebrate university graduations nationwide. A graduation gift, like any other, needs to be thoughtful. So as your sons, daughters, sisters, brothers and even parents are starting to graduate, we thought we'd give you a helping hand in picking the perfect graduation gifts.

Read our Graduation Gift Guide below...

Graduation Gifts for New Home Owners

They're no longer in student accommodation and might actually look after their 'digs' this time. So what do you get them? Luckily we're a design led furniture & gift retailer, meaning we have plenty to chose from...

Moving into your new home at the start of your new adult life is exciting but it won't feel like home for a while. So gifting a small home accessory that you know they will love like the Spira Face Cushions or character inspired Kokeshi Dolls is sure to make them feel at home. We also have decorative pieces like the Muuto Crushed Bowl or Ferm Living Hexagon pots if they are a design aficionado. Want something more practical? Look no further that the Hay Beam Coat Rack or Areaware Table Tiles.

Graduation Gifts for a New Job

They've finally stepped foot into the 'real world' and secured themselves the graduate job they've been frenetically panicking about for the past year or so. So how do you celebrate that? Don't worry we have you covered...

How about a gift that will add some character to their desk? The Concrete Desktop Planter will add a splash of greenery whilst the Vitra Toolbox will keep their desk organised and their colleagues impressed. The Ferm Brass Pencil Pot matches perfectly with the Hay Tray in Gold and are sought after highly by stationery lovers. If you think they need something more practical why not try a Kaweco Pen, Design Letters Notebook or the Alessi Bis Paper Knife? Finally, if you're worried they're still stuck in student hibernation mode, an INSTRMNT watch is a no-fuss everyday timepiece that will keep them on track and on trend.

Graduation Gifts for the Traveler

Not everyone jumps straight into adult life after graduation. For those that decide they would rather jump into the pool in an exotic resort or jump off a cliff in New Zealand, here's the perfect gift for them...

Travel Listography will help them plan out the finer details of their trip and you can help them set them off on in style with the Sunnylife Watermelon Tote and  Hay Sleep Well cushion. Once they're hopping from country to country the Chilly's Water Bottle always comes in handy and this Sunnylife underwater camera will make sure they catch every single moment. Think they'll be doing more lounging that travelling? Why not gift them the hugely popular Sunnylife Pineapple Float. When they finally return home, they can keep a record of where they have travelled to with the Deluxe Scratch Map.

Thank You Messages

I have rarely experienced such excellent quality advice, support and reliability. Your staff communicate effectively and helpfully. I am a truly satisfied customer. I love my String Shelving and I will not hesitate to return to Utility for my next purchase. Thank you!

Your customer service has been fantastic. I'm seriously impressed. Really pleased to be able to place the bigger order and make your time worthwhile. I think I need to send you a medal!

I just wanted to express my thanks again for your great customer service. I ordered my items less than 24 hours ago and I’ve amended my order- yet I still have my order here with me now. You went out of your way to deliver my order and I’m very grateful. I wish more places had people like you :-)

Excellent customer service and immediate response to enquiry (live chat). Very happy every time used Utility both online and on high street.

I couldn't be happier with the custom made sofa bought through the online store. It is perfect and made all the more enjoyable by buying it through the guys at utility. Ben and Paul who delivered the sofa were amazing, kind and really helpful in a difficult situation (of course the lift broke when I was getting something delivered). Would highly recommend!

Just wanted to message and say that I'm a big fan of the Utility Stores and the types of products you guys sell. I work close by to the Manchester store at University Green, so I'm popping in a fair bit generally for cards, gifts, etc. I just nipped in again this afternoon about one product I'd bought earlier and the staff were super helpful and attentive. It made it really easy, and I was in and out in no time.

Just wanted to drop you guys a quick note to say how happy I am with the service I have had. Especially the two guys who delivered/carried into an awkward space/built/then took away the packaging, not to mention then gave me a lift into town. Thank you. Plus the sofa looks amazing. I will definitely be using you guys more in the future and will highly recommend you to anyone who will listen.

Thank you for all your help and customer service, the Eames Lounge Chair arrived yesterday and I love it.

Comment: I just wanted to say that Esther on the checkout in the L1 store made my day today she was so friendly
