Creative ways to present a poem to a son who is graduating include reading the poem out loud during the graduation open house event, having the poem printed on a gift, or writing the poem inside a greeting card. If reading the poem aloud, consider also giving the graduate a copy of the poem as a keepsake.
During the graduation open house to celebrate the graduate's achievement, read the poem aloud to the guests in attendance. Practice reading the poem aloud in private beforehand to avoid stumbling over the words. At the event, greet the crowd, stand up straight, and make eye contact with the guests. Have a written copy of the poem on hand for reference, especially if the poem is longer than a few lines.
Write the poem inside a greeting card, or have it printed on a custom-made gift, such as a framed canvas, a mirror or a throw pillow. Have a plaque made with the poem and a special photo from the graduate's childhood. Print the poem on a mug, a t-shirt or a mouse pad. Have the poem printed on quality card stock, and either frame it or include it in a scrapbook of childhood memories.
