Gifts for Graduates

June 11, 2012 / Uncategorized

It’s graduation time! Here’s a roundup of gifts we think are great for just about any grad (kids, nieces, nephews, babysitters or what have you):

These pirate coasters are just plain funny. Perfect response to the question grads hear ad nauseum, “What are you doing after graduation?” This’ll show ’em!

On a more serious note, this necklace by Kathy Bransfield offers a beautiful response to that very same question. Why not celebrate that optimistic “I’m going to change the world” mentality that so many grads have? (Having been one of those optimistic grads, we can tell you this necklace is a way better response than an eyeroll!)

Serious of a different sort is this personalized laundry bag. Let’s face it, there’s only so much we can do to make sure our beloved grads do a little laundry now and then. Just give them this personalized bag and hope for the best.

This Sky Planter isn’t quite a graduation gift, per se, but we really do like it so we thought we’d include it. It’s a fun way for first-time dorm dwellers or apartment-renters to get a little greenery without taking up any space. And it looks interesting and quirky, just like every first-year college students wants to be. So there you go.

Finally, here’s a beautiful, handmade graduation blanket. Seriously, why haven’t we seen these before? It’s a lovely idea for sending a loved one off to a new life. It’s not flashy, not overtly sentimental, but it’s a cozy, enveloping hug from home.

And that’s something from which we never graduate.
