AWL Graduation Gift Guide, Best Graduation Gifts
It’s time to think about graduation!  In my Graduation Gift Guide 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” whether that means college or off into the work world feeling loved and confident! Below, I am sharing options for both him and her that you are sure to love!
With my two of my girls now graduated from high school and one from college, I have done multiple posts sharing all of the things that go with that including An Italian Riviera Inspired Graduation Brunch, 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 have done a lot of these things so 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 with options for high school and college graduates.

I love to give personalized gifts for girls and guys.  I think they’re more special and thoughtful.  It can be something as simple as a personalized crossbody. Or you can give a duffle bag or cufflinks for the guys.  If you want to give something really sweet and sentimental, I love this coordinates bracelet idea. You can put the coordinates of their home address, college or another place you know is special to them.  I have one with the coordinates of where we went on our first date and returned a year later when he proposed.

Another great personalized gift is this tote from Barrington Gifts.  There are so many prints and combinations to choose from! You can get this tote personalized with everything from their school colors to their favorite colors.  I also love this great duffle bag and gave it to one of my girls closest friends as their graduation gift.

This toiletry kit is a great gift for a guy and can be monogrammed.  I gave it to my husband at Christmas and he loves it.  Another great gift for a guy is a polo shirt, pullover or belt from their new alma mater!  Peter Millar has a wide selection of collegiate gifts for men and women from so many schools.

If you want to give something you know they’ll use over and over again, a coffee maker is always an easy gift idea.  This Ember mug is cool too. It keeps your coffee at your preferred temperature, which is perfect for late night studying.  A tool set is a must-have for any graduate and very practical!  Dad won’t be there to “fix it” any more!  (Cue the tears!)

For something a little nicer, consider giving jewelry. A nice watch for him or her is a great college graduation gift.  If you’re looking to give an extra special jewelry piece to your daughter, goddaughter, niece, etc.  My girls all have this Roberto Coin tiny diamond cross.  It is beautiful alone or layered with their favorite pieces.
For the guys, this Patagonia bag is a really nice gift idea. Monogrammed duffles are great as well.  If they’re a high school grad, game day spirit wear from Peter Millar is perfect. They have a ton of schools to choose from and lots of options. For the college graduate, think about giving a Yeti cooler. 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 Sonos speaker or some AirPods.  There were Eno hammocks all over the different campuses we visited so I know they are great gifts, too.

Tech gifts are another idea. The coolest gift I found is this notepad that transfers handwritten notes to an app on your phone!  The Amazon Echo or Alexa is another helpful tech tool to give.  Or you can go with an Apple Watch or AirPods.

You’ll find more graduation gifts in the boutique below and let me know if you have any questions!  Are there certain items you are looking for?  I’d love to help!  Just drop me a line in the comments below and I’ll get right back to you!
