Best Graduation Gifts for 2020

by | Apr 29, 2020 | Gifts, LIfestyle

Graduation Gifts
I know there is a lot of uncertainty around graduations and while many graduations for both high school and college students are postponed or canceled, that certainly doesn’t mean they don’t deserve to be celebrated! Below, you’ll find the best graduation gifts you can send to your special graduate.
With my oldest graduating from high school last year, I did multiple posts sharing all of the things that go with that including dorm organization tips, tips for moving in, creating a beautiful dorm room, and how to put together care packages. I’m not an expert but please let me know if you have any questions I can answer about that process!
In the boutique below, I’ve included gifts for her, for him, and for their friends! As well as options for high school graduates and college graduates. First I want to start with gifts for the young ladies. Whether they’re graduating from college or high school, a backpack or tote is a great option. You can get this tote personalized and I love that this backpack is convertible. For options without a monogram, this backpack is perfect.
For something a little nicer, consider giving jewelry. I recently worked with Hazen & Co on a special project to create beautiful pieces that are perfect graduation gifts or Mother’s Day gifts! I love these earrings and this necklace! If you’re looking to give an extra special jewelry piece to your daughter, goddaughter, niece, etc., read this post where I talk about celebrating milestones with pieces from Eiseman Jewels. Including this gorgeous cross necklace!
For the guys, this Patagonia bag is a really nice gift idea. If they’re a high school grad, these collegiate shirts from Peter Miller are perfect. They have a ton of schools to choose from and lots of options. For the college graduate, think about giving a Yeti cooler or personalized bottle opener. Some other things that are great for the guys but could work for anyone include a tool kit (red for the guys and pink for the girls), a nice Bose speaker, or some AirPods. Find more graduation gifts in the boutique below and let me know if you have any questions!
Be sure to subscribe to my newsletter so you don’t miss the Spring content I have coming your way.  When you subscribe you’ll also receive my eBooks, Fresh Sips, Taste of Summer and Summer Entertaining, all great for warm weather that is right around the corner! Don’t you know we’ll all be ready for that!

Have a great weekend!
