Ultimate Graduation Gift Guide

Graduation Time is Here and I Have the Ultimate Gift Guide For You!

Here we are again…The excitement for the 2019 Graduates!

I know money in a card is the typical go-to, but we can step up our game a little and tuck a little cash in with some creativity. I did the search for ya so all you have to do is buy – wrap {or bag it} – and be awesome!

Fleece Throw Blanket

Every college student needs a throw blanket to wrap up in while they study.

Unbreakable Tumblers

Unbreakable water cups are a must in college. There’s a lot of them to choose from, plastic to stainless steel. Pop a little cash inside, wrap it in confetti + cello-bag and your ready to gift!

Communal Bathroom Basket

When you share the showers with your whole floor you gotta have your own caddy – HAVE TOO! And having everything you need in a grab-n-go caddy makes the college student’s morning go that much easier. {Or afternoon, some of us are not morning class people} 😉 You can get all the necessities and fill the caddy as a gift, or just use the caddy + ShowaFlops as the start to filling their caddy.

Hi-Tech Graduate

For the tech-Grad… Here are a few gift ideas to wrap up on Graduation day. Even if they aren’t a tech fanatic the multi-outlet surge protector is a must-have because there are never enough outlets in the dorm room.

Gift Baskets

Put together some of the Graduates favorites in a themed gift basket.

The Coffee Lover? Fill the basket with coffee mug, coffee pods, creamer, sugar, chocolate spoons, coffee cookies, muffins, and a Starbucks or Dunkin gift card. Be the Queen of coffee giving and add a mini Keurig 😱

They’ll have to do laundry. Fill a laundry carry bag with all the essentials:: soap, stain remover, dryer sheets, and a roll of quarters.

Make a Gift Card Tree:: It’s easy to do a google search for places around the Graduates campus if you’ve never been there. Target or Walmart for last minute things they need, Starbucks, Dunkin, or Caribou cards, sandwich shops, fast food…

$$$:: Cash is still King/Queen when it comes to college life. But even if you’re planning on slipping cash into a card you can still spice it up a little to surprise the Grad. And if you’re looking for more ideas here is my Graduation Gift Guide from last year for a few more ideas. Happy shopping + HAPPY GRADUATION 2019 GRADUATES!

I’ll be sending out my VERY DETAILED college dorm packing list soon. Are you on my Sparkle Notes so you get to download your copy?

Cheers & Sparkles 2019 Grads + Families!
