Yep!  That’s Erin and Hayley at Erin’s grad school graduation.  It seems like just yesterday…

Speaking of graduation, my mom had a request a while back for me to do a post on graduation gifts.  With May just around the corner, graduation time is going to sneak up on us.  So, I thought I would give you a few ideas…..

It is hard to find that special gift for each individual graduate.  Where mou-lah is probably every grad’s favorite, it is always nice to give them something they wouldn’t normally buy for themselves.

Unique gifts:

I know that most football stadiums are going to the clear handbag requirement.  What better than to get the female grad, but a custom clear bag.Screen Shot 2019-03-30 at 4.49.13 PM

I love this one from Gigi New York.  It’s on the pricey side but it is designer.  It has an adjustable strap plus you can add a tassel with your recipient’s college colors. And, with any Gigi bag, it can be personalized!! It would be something they could definitely get at least four years of wear.Screen Shot 2019-03-30 at 4.49.42 PM

As far as the guy grad, an embroidered two-fold wallet from their college of choice would be a special present, especially if you added some greenbacks inside.;)

I know the handwritten note is almost extinct, but what a great way to encourage letter writing to home but some monogrammed stationery and personalized notepads.Screen Shot 2019-03-31 at 3.56.38 PM.pngScreen Shot 2019-03-31 at 3.57.12 PM.png

A lightweight cooler from the graduate’s school of choice is a great gift that you could fill with other goodies!

For any grad, a personalized, leather Bible is always a nice gift.

This one comes in five colors.

Along those lines, a good daily devotion to keep your grad on track is always a unique gift to add to the Bible.

Of course, gift cards to pizza restaurants, gas stations and grocery stores are always going to be utilized sooner than later.  You can put them on this little tree for a fun gift wrapping option that could later be used as a photo/note holder on a dorm desk.Screen Shot 2019-03-31 at 3.50.13 PM.png
