Graduation Party Guest Book Alternatives

1. Globe Graduation Party Guest Book

One of my favorite graduation party guest book alternatives is this cute globe idea. Have all of your guests sign their name and a little message onto a blank globe.

This is especially cute if the graduate is really into travel! You could even have guests write their top travel tips if the graduate is heading off on a trip or study abroad soon.

All you really need for this guest book idea is a blank globe and some fine tip markers. This blank guest book globe from Etsy (pictured above) works perfectly.

If you’re looking to save a little bit of money, you could just buy a regular globe and paint it white. This globe from Amazon is the same size and would look really nice as a guest book after you painted the face of it.

I absolutely love the polaroid guest book idea for pretty much any event. It’s perfect for graduation parties because it’s something that your guests can do while they’re mingling.

All you need to do for this is have a blank guest book, a polaroid camera, some cute washi tape, and pens for your guests to write notes to the graduate.

It’ll be so nice for your graduate to have a book of all of their favorite people to take with them to college.

Graduation is a super exciting time in your life because you’re (hopefully) off to bigger and better things.

Then, you can send your graduate off to college (or the real world) with a fun game that has little notes from all of their loved ones. So sweet and simple!

Here’s what you’ll need for this alternate guest book idea:

If your graduate is headed off to college soon, have all of your guests sign a college T-shirt for them!

All you need for this is a T-shirt and some sharpie markers.

They probably won’t wear it around at school but it’ll be a really special keepsake for them to hold onto or frame.

6. Framed Grad Party Guest Book

Want a super easy way to turn your guest book into a keepsake for the graduate? I absolutely love this frame guest book from Etsy!

All of your guests will sign the photo mat and then you’ll put it together with the frame and photo to give to your graduate.

7. Bible Verse Guest Book For A Graduation Party

Want to give your graduate a special guest book that they can take with them to college? This bible idea is so sweet and thoughtful.

Guests can highlight their favorite bible verses and write a little note for the graduate next to it.

Just make sure you have another alternative so your non-religious guests don’t feel uncomfortable.

Not everyone will have a favorite bible verse but you still want to remember that they were there!

Then frame it and they can use it as artwork in their dorm or apartment!
