Why an Amish clock makes a meaningful gift for graduation

As your graduate stands poised to turn the page between college and the next chapter of their lives, you may be searching for the perfect graduation gift to show them how proud you are. This rite of passage comes loaded with emotions ranging from sadness in leaving behind such a formative time in their lives, to joy and excitement as they explore new opportunities on the horizon, to pride and a sense of hard-earned accomplishment, and everything in between. You want your gift to say more than just “Congratulations!” A handmade Amish clock is a perfect gift to carry those sentiments and mark the occasion for years to come.

The natural function of a clock, marking moments, makes it a wonderful gift to mark special moments of pride and accomplishment. When you give a new graduate an heirloom-quality clock, more than congratulations, you welcome a newly minted scholar into the world that lies ahead. Throughout their life, it will serve as a constant reminder of their accomplishments and your pride in them.

While any beautiful, custom clock is an excellent choice, the shelf clock is particularly well-suited as a graduation gift. A handmade Amish clock from our collection will make a handsome addition to their home office or library, or at work once they take up their first real office in their new career.
