Fancy some CPA Exam gifts?
Studying for the CPA Exam can be a daunting task. So, you might want to have little things around the house to cheer you up. Or, you may be shopping for gifts for someone who passed the CPA Exam. Either way, I have ideas for unique and practical CPA gifts.
Do you need present ideas for passing exams like the CPA Exam? If so, I’ve gathered some thoughts from my colleagues. Here’s my top 10 list in no particular order. Plus, I’ve elaborated on all of these ideas in my article below.
If you need gifts for passing the CPA Exam, ExamGifts has a cool and affordable collection of mugs, mousepads, fridge magnets, tote bags, and tees that will serve this exact purpose. I created the designs in my spare time for my friends and study buddies. I hope you like them, too!
Here are some other good ideas:
One of my favorites gifts is anything with the CPA: Can Pass Attitude logo, which is also the logo of this site. The simplistic design carries a loud and clear message — you can pass the CPA Exam with the right attitude!
This stainless steel travel/commuter mug is a spill-proof and has a removable plastic top.
Coffee mugs, tote bags, clothes, and accessories with the same designs are also available.
If you like my collection of motivational exam quotes, you might be interested in gifts of wisdom from Winston Churchill, Thomas Edison, and Edward Young. Zazzle.com has a lot of accounting-themed motivational quotes to choose from.
Some of my accountant friends give out “CPA Exam Survival Kits” to their friends who are studying for the exam. They’re a really fun way to support the special person in your life who is on the CPA journey.
What should you include in your survival kit? Coffee mugs for late-night studying are a must. And nice pens and notebooks make studying a little more fun. You can find companies online that will customize notebook covers. Something like “Stephanie—Future CPA” would be nice!
T-shirts with fun sayings are always popular. People love this Balanced Diet… is a Cookie in Each Hand T-shirt — and the tees are available in many colors for men, women, kids, and even babies. Even if you don’t plan to buy anything, check out the designs for a laugh!
After you pass the CPA Exam, don’t forget to reward yourself! After all, you put in a lot of hard work, and you deserve to treat yourself. If you’re looking for some practical ideas, here are some suggestions:
In the end, the perfect gift for passing the CPA Exam is something thoughtful. Most accountants don’t expect a lavish present. Really, when it comes to gifts for the CPA Exam, it’s the thought that counts.
I am the author of How to Pass The CPA Exam (published by Wiley), and I also passed all 4 sections of the CPA Exam on my first try. Additionally, I have led webinars, such as for the Institute of Management Accountants, authored featured articles on websites like Going Concern and AccountingWeb, and I'm also the CFO for the charity New Sight. Finally, I have created other accounting certification websites to help mentor non-CPA candidates. I have already mentored thousands of CPA, CMA, CIA, EA, and CFA candidates, and I can help you too!
