Graduation Gift Guide

Graduation season is in full swing which means lots of grad parties and gifts to shop for. Next Saturday is graduation at my school so the chaos has not quite begun, however I know lots of schools have already had their ceremonies. Shopping for the perfect gift can be hard. Every party is a different, some people you know better than others, and everyone has different tastes. I think that this gift guide a little something for everyone (and every budget). Although it may seem impersonal, giving money is also never a bad idea. College students will greatly appreciate having a little extra spending money throughout the year!

I know that many high school and college students (including myself) are extremely dependent on coffee. Starbucks gift cards are great especially because most colleges have one on campus! Also, if you are looking to spend a little bit more, a keurig is an awesome present that would be perfect to have in a dorm! 

New luggage is a perfect for someone about to head off to college. From lugging everything down on move in day to weekend adventures, I guarantee you grad will love a new tote or duffel.

Majority of people I know leave their home state when they head off to school. So, I think that something involving their state would be really nice to remind them of home during the school year. The coordinates necklace is such a cute (and inexpensive) gift that is very personal, you can even customize it with the exact address of their childhood home.

Being on a college campus, chances are they will be doing lots of walking from their dorm to class. A fitbit would be a fun gift to track daily steps or workouts-- avoid the freshman 15!

Personally, I think that nice jewelry is the best graduation gift. If you have been lusting over something for a long time graduation would be the perfect time to receive a timeless piece from your parents or family.

Moving into a dorm is a big change and giving a gift to make the transition a bit smoother is always a good idea. A nice bath set or slippers will make your grad feel at home next fall at college!
