Best Graduation Gifts for 2021

Graduation Gifts
Here you’ll find the best graduation gifts you can send to your special graduate. Letting them know just how proud you are with a special gift will be sure to kick off their time in the “real world” feeling loved and confident! Below, I am sharing options for both him and her that you are sure to love!
With my oldest graduating from high school two years ago, 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 Millar 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 (orange 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!

21 Maxi and Midi Dresses for Summer

As you may have heard me say many times before, dresses are my go-to way to dress for any occasion and a maxi or midi dress can be casual or dressed up. They are easy to throw on and accessorize without a lot of fuss! I’ve shared How to Wear a Maxi Dress at Any Height and I thought I would share my favorite summer maxi and midi dresses for this summer.
