Graduation Ideas


Some Suggestions

School graduations mark special accomplishments in a young person's learning. Celebrate these occasions with a Ukrainian-themed gift!

Books which are recommended for young adults include reference works: a large, 100,000 word Ukrainian-English Dictionary. The classic History of Ukraine by Orest Subtelny, or a finely-illustrated bilingual volume about Ukraine's culture.

Ukrainian music is popular with young people, including Zabava music from North America, and modern folk/rock from Ukraine by  current artists.

Embroidered shirts and blouses are available in many colors and styles, and with handmade and machine-made embroidery designs. For dancing or performing, special occasions or holidays, an embroidered shirt is a "must-have"!

Special jewelry reflects the Ukrainian heritage, such as gold and silver tryzubs. There are pendants, earrings and rings.

Girls will enjoy colorful floral shawls. There are tryzub caps and scarves for the boys.

And don't forget about Ukrainian traditions: many pysanka-making kits, tools and accessories are available!
