Celebrating Graduation with Boba: A Guide to Gift Giving

Graduation season, means graduation party season is here.  As summer approaches, many find themselves grappling with a perennial question: How much should I gift a high school or college graduate? Additionally, in a world where unique celebrations are increasingly valued, incorporating boba into graduation festivities has become a popular choice. From boba gifts to setting up a boba bar, here’s your comprehensive guide to celebrating graduation with a touch of deliciousness.

How Much Should I Gift a High School or College Graduate?

Choosing the perfect gift for a graduate can be challenging. Whether they’re stepping into the professional world or continuing their academic journey, a thoughtful gift can make their transition memorable. When it comes to determining the appropriate amount to gift, consider factors such as your relationship with the graduate, your budget, and local customs.

  • Consider Your Relationship: The nature of your relationship with the graduate can influence the amount you choose to gift. Close family members or lifelong friends might opt for more substantial gifts compared to acquaintances or distant relatives.
  • Budget: It’s essential to set a budget that you’re comfortable with. Remember, the value of the gift isn’t solely measured by its price tag. A heartfelt gesture or personalized item can be just as meaningful, if not more so, than an expensive gift.
  • Local Customs: In some cultures or communities, there may be customary expectations regarding graduation gifts. It’s worth considering these traditions while deciding on an appropriate amount.
  • Practicality vs. Sentiment: Think about whether the graduate would appreciate a practical gift that aligns with their future endeavors or a sentimental keepsake that commemorates their achievements.

Ultimately, the most meaningful gifts are often those that reflect the graduate’s interests, aspirations, and personality.

The Graduation Party & Boba

Boba, also known as bubble tea, has surged in popularity worldwide with its unique combination of tea, milk, and chewy tapioca pearls. Incorporating boba into graduation celebrations adds a fun and flavorful twist to the festivities. Here’s how you can elevate your graduation party with boba:

  • Boba Gifts: Consider gifting the graduate with a boba-themed present, like Better Boba’s Premium Tea Kits. Each handcrafted, reusable wooden box includes one bag of all-natural classic pearls, a glass boba jar with bamboo lid and stainless steel straw, three premium teas from The Tao of Tea, and recipe cards. ($49.99)
  • Boba Bar: Create a boba bar at the graduation party, allowing guests to customize their own bubble tea creations. Set up stations with various tea bases, milk options, flavored syrups, and toppings such as tapioca pearls, fruit jellies, or boba bubbles. Provide recipe cards or guidance to help guests craft their perfect boba drink.
  • Boba Treats: In addition to traditional boba beverages, consider incorporating boba into other treats and desserts. Serve boba-infused cupcakes, cakes, or ice cream sundaes for a deliciously unique twist.

By infusing your graduation celebrations with boba, you’re not only treating guests to a delightful culinary experience but also adding a touch of trendy sophistication to the festivities. From boba-themed gifts to creating a DIY boba bar, there are countless ways to incorporate this beloved beverage into your graduation party planning.

In summary, the amount you choose to gift a high school or college graduate should reflect your relationship, budget, and cultural norms. When it comes to celebrating graduation, incorporating boba into the festivities offers a fun and flavorful way to mark this significant milestone. Whether you’re sipping on customized bubble teas at a boba bar or surprising the graduate with a boba-themed gift, embracing the boba craze adds an extra layer of enjoyment to the celebration. Cheers to the graduates and their bright futures ahead!
