Any of you guys get something from your Dad for HS graduation that was/is meaningful to you?

I'm stumped on what to get my son, and perhaps there will be a gem or two in the numerous joke responses this is bound to get.

My parents got me a more reliable, fuel efficient car to drive to college (Toy Corolla) than my giant 13mpg 15-year old Chevy Impala duct-taped beater I had through high school. It was fulfillment of the standard tried-and-true parents' promise ("You study and make good grades and get into college, we'll get you a car"). I know you got that taken care of already with your kid.

But my aunt & uncle gave me a South African Krugerrand coin (1oz 100% gold, or very close to pure, not sure) when I graduated from Clemson. I thought that was the coolest gift ever. It was actually illegal to own in the USA at the time (banned because of apartheid laws) but not anymore. My uncle was kind of a rebel that way, I don't know how he got it, and didn't ask.

Still have it today in a glass display case. Awesome to own something that is authentically pure gold.
Maybe if not a Krugerrand, some sort of limited edition coin that he would treasure.

Didn’t seem great at the time. But I definitely appreciate it more now.

Step mom had recently cheated on my dad again and the separation was fresh on everyone’s mind. There were folks choosing sides at the graduation party. But the cheating sluttybitches didn’t have a chance.
For my graduation my dad asked if I would be willing to pay half of the mortgage and utilities. If I couldn’t we would lose the house. We lost the house. My Bi-Lo assistant bookkeeper minimum wage wasn’t enough to fix poor adult decisions and a “cheating ##### slut” from stealing my father’s future. Happy graduation!

For a real gift, I’d recommend a nice family trip with emphasis on family being together. Give him something that equates to a reasonable investment. Money towards a down payment for a car, education, house, or whatever you know he loves that isn’t completely counterintuitive to being a responsible adult. (Even a video game if he really wants it. It might seem wasteful now. But he will appreciate the kindness.) Be sure to tell him you love him and tell him you are proud of him. Make sure he knows you mean it.

Butt this is one of the last opportunities you will get to kick his butt. So when he least expects it, punch him in the jaw and tell him… “Now it’s you against the world. I’m on your side for now and always kid. But I need you to know, if you ever think you want to join the world and fight against me… I can still kick your ###!” Then tell him you love him and you’re proud of him again.

At least that’s what I wish my father would have given to me on my graduation. Instead we got a divorce, a drunk, and foreclosure. But the new apartment had a pool. So that was nice.
