The Best Graduation Gift For High School Or College Is Skydiving

Tuesday, May 9, 2023

Looking for an unforgettable, unique gift? Skydiving is one of the best ways to celebrate any milestone, especially that of a recent high school or college graduate. Here, we’ll explain why and give a few suggestions on how exactly to go about giving the gift of human flight!


Is skydiving a good gift? Pssh … it’s the best gift everrrr. 

Giving skydiving as a gift isn’t just one of the coolest gifts your graduate will get, it’s also a life-changing experience that comes with the gift of confidence and empowerment! Skydiving for graduation is the best way to celebrate all of the hard work that went into earning that sweet-sweet diploma and finally taste pure freedom by having fun and floating through the big, blue, limitless sky!

5 Reasons Why 4-way Formation Skydiving is Great | Skydive Orange


Graduating high school is an enormous achievement that deserves celebration! What better way for your graduate to dive into adulthood than a dive out of a perfectly good airplane?! 

Skydiving is enriching in unexpected ways, and the impact of the experience stays with you forever. It brings tremendous clarity and perspective and has the power to help you work through fear of the unknown. The day you go skydiving will be one of the most memorable days of your life. And when combined with another milestone? It’s pure magic.  

When purchasing a skydiving gift certificate for your high school graduate make sure you consider the age requirement. All participants must be at least 18 years of age to go skydiving. Not 18 yet? We suggest purchasing a gift certificate to be used once they turn 18 – yet another cause for a big celebration! (Keep in mind that Skydive Orange gift cards are valid for one year.)


If you’ve taken college courses, you can admit it’s a totally different ball game than you might be used to. Whether you’re getting an associate’s, bachelor’s, graduate, doctorate, or professional degree – crossing the finish line is a monumental achievement that you’ll always remember. You’ve most likely all but busted your brainbox to get that degree – you owe it to yourself to take advantage of all the benefits of adrenaline and skydiving. Rejuvenate your brain and body!


Okay, so now that you’ve decided to get your accomplished graduate a skydiving gift, you might begin to wonder how exactly to give skydiving as a gift. Luckily, getting a skydiving graduation gift is a breeze! Here are a few ways you can present a skydiving gift:

1. Get a Skydiving Gift Certificate

The easiest way to give a skydiving graduation gift is by purchasing a skydiving gift certificate. At Skydive Orange, we offer several customized skydiving gift cards for first-time skydivers and for those looking to learn to skydive on their own! 

Why Skydiving Is Great for Corporate Groups | Skydive Orange

For first-time skydivers, we recommend doing a tandem skydive. A tandem is where the novice is securely attached to an experienced and highly-trained tandem instructor. In our gift card store, you will have the option to purchase one of our tandem skydive packages and have the option to add-on videos/photos. (Pro-tip: getting a video package on top of a skydive will officially make you a gift-giving hero. If the combined cost is more than you envisioned spending, think about conspiring with another sneaky surpriser to create the most epic present on the planet!)  

We also offer skydiving gift certificates with a dollar amount that can be used towards any of our skydiving services. Gift certificates can be personalized with a “to” and “from” and are delivered via an email attachment which can then be printed and given to your loved ones or sent directly to their email address (you can always forward the email to them when the time is right). When it comes time to book the gift certificate, the recipient will use the voucher code located underneath the barcode. Easy peasy.

2. Schedule the Reservation Ahead of Time

If you want to be sure to lock in a specific date and time, it might be a good idea to go ahead and schedule the reservation in advance (and that way, they can’t back out *wink*). Slots can book up pretty quickly during peak season, so if schedules are tight, it’s best to reserve as far in advance as possible – you can always reschedule if needed. If you choose this option, it might be a good idea to print out the confirmation email once you receive it and give it to your graduate to open on their special day!

3. The Element of Surprise

Shhhh… looking for the most awe-inspiring presentation of all? What about not only scheduling a jump for your graduate but also giving them minimal details ahead of gently stuffing them in the car and keeping their destination a secret!!?! Squeeeee! (Let us in on the secret too; we love surprises!)

Major accomplishments are not usually achieved alone, so why should they be celebrated alone? Chances are your graduate has shared the same struggles and slogged through many late-night study sessions with their pals. What about a group skydiving trip? And then, what if they make skydiving an annual tradition to stay connected and relive the good times? Ahhh … to live vicariously … (Wait! You don’t have to watch from the sidelines – there’s no maximum age to skydive! Let’s go!!)

Whichever way you choose to give the gift of skydiving, it’ll be a graduation gift that will be remembered for the rest of your dedicated student’s life. Schedule a surprise skydive or purchase a skydiving gift certificate today! Blue skies.
