Item details

This personalized upcycled Altoid tin would make a one-of-kind and thoughtful gift for something graduating from high school or college. The tin is decorated according to your preference (see item photos for samples, or describe your own), and filled with sixteen tokens, magnets, and charms. Each item is accompanied by an inspirational quote or quip that we print on deluxe cardstock. The quote card fits nicely inside the tin. We're happy to personalize this insert with a name, etc.! Just ask at time of order.

The sixteen items are: cake, magic wand, blank book, glasses, passport, brains, heart, working compass, working hourglass, captain's wheel, superhero charms, lock and key charm, globe (it spins), graduation cap, door locket, variety of poetry word magnets.

Some sample quotes:

Ship’s Wheel. “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~Mark Twain

Graduation Cap. “Graduation is only a concept. In real life, every day you graduate. Graduation is a process that goes on until the last day of your life. If you can grasp that, you’ll make a difference.” ~Arie Pencovici

“The one thing you have that nobody else has is you. Your voice, your mind, your story, your vision. So write and draw and build and play and dance and live as only you can.” ~Neil Gaiman

Heart. “How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.” ~Winnie the Pooh

Free Shipping when you order two or more boxes, to be shipped to same address (I will simply refund shipping charges upon order placement).

The tin measures 3 1/2 x 2 1/2 inches.

The inside of the box is the perfect size to hold a gift card that you may add upon receipt of the box, or the box and its contents can serve as a thoughtful gift in itself.

**I am happy to remove the pendant loops currently attached to many items--be sure to let me know if you DON'T want the loops.

If you would like to swap out one or two of the sixteen items normally included for something of special significance to you or the graduate, just ask! I have so many items on hand that I can't list them all! What has worked well is when customers brainstorm ten to twelve things that they have bonded with the gift recipient over; books, movies, sports, animals, nature items, travel, humo

Estimated Shipping
Shipping to
Zip or postal code

For most items, I use USPS priority flat-rate shipping which ranges from $7.15 up to $13.50, depending on the size of the item. The exception is handmade jewelry items, which ship for $3 using USPS.

I do combine shipping, so I can can typically ship up to three items in a single box/package for one price.

Most items ship within three to five business days, and therefore most items will arrive within a week to ten days after order placement. If you need an item sooner, such a a bereavement gift, please let me know and I'll work with you!

By request, I am happy to do overnight shipping, with the buyer paying shipping fees above and beyond the regular shipping costs per item. Most of my listings have a "shipping upgrade" option at checkout; if you don't find this, just let me know through Etsy conversation.

I always provide the tracking number regardless of shipping method. If for whatever reason it costs more to send than anticipated, I will cover the difference.
