We’ve had several graduations in our family this year, and it reminded me of one of my favorite graduation gifts.
The funny thing is… I gave the gift to myself in celebration of earning my Master’s degree from the University of Oklahoma.
I wanted a gift with my alma mater’s logo that I would use for years and years to remind me of my college experience.
I bought myself a jumbo college mug with the OU logo and name. The size was perfect for soup, cereal and coffee!
It was thick, heavy and durable, and I knew it would last forever.
As I grew older, my OU shot glasses stopped getting used as much, and my OU shirts competed for wear time with my Oklahoma City Thunder basketball shirts.
I continued to use my beautiful crimson jumbo mug. When I brought it to work people would comment on it. Who would have thought it would make a great conversation starter?!
If you are looking for a graduation gift with a lot of staying power, give a jumbo college mug to a graduate from the school they will be attending or the school where they graduated.
