The Best Gifts for Colorado Alumni

College can hold a special place in people’s lives long after graduation. If you’re looking for gift ideas for a Colorado college graduate who is brimming with school pride, here are some of the best gifts for both new and old Colorado State and Colorado University alumni.


Nothing says school pride like wearing your school’s logo for all to see. Whether your alumnus prefers comfortable sweats or snappy polos, there are plenty of apparel options to choose from. Both Colorado State University and Colorado University offer online shopping through their school’s bookstore, making it easy to find styles that are only available through the university. University bookstores are also a great place to find inspiration for unique gifts, so if you’re feeling stumped take a look and see if something jumps out at you! 


For Colorado alumni who want to show their school pride every day, jewelry is a wonderful gift. CU jewelry featuring Ralphie is sure to be a favorite for Buffs, as is Cam the Ram on CSU jewelry. From elegant and understated to bold and flashy, there are many different styles of earrings, necklaces, and bracelets available, so it’s easy to find a style that matches your giftee’s. 

Jewelry is often considered to be a gift for women, but this couldn’t be further from the truth! Simple leather bracelets are a stylish addition to casual wear for both men and women. Add a small CSU or CU engraving to the clasp for a comfortable, soft leather bracelet perfect for everyday wear.\


Engraving is a great option for creating a meaningful, personalized gift. Even the simplest items can be made extra special with a personalized engraving. Whether you buy an item from a shop that customizes things directly or take your gift to a specialty store, engraving can elevate a gift from simple to special. Some great options to consider for engraving are travel mugs, pocket knives, glass tumblers, and metal fountain pens. Engrave your giftee’s school logo, name, graduation date, fraternity or sorority letters, or anything else you think will be the most meaningful to them. 

Diploma Display 

Earning a degree takes hard work, dedication, and for some individuals, it’s the realization of a lifelong aspiration. If you know an alum who doesn’t display their diploma or if you are looking for a gift for a soon-to-be college graduate, help them celebrate their achievement with a display for their diploma. There are many different display options, from simple, single-pane frames to sectioned displays for both diploma and tassel. To make your gift even more special, diploma frames with mattes featuring the CU or CSU logo can really add a personalized touch. These diploma displays are easy to find at many different online stores, as well as the CU and CSU bookstores. 

No matter what occasion you need a gift for, celebrating a person’s college of choice is a great way to honor one of their major personal achievements.
