Can you believe graduation season is upon us? I feel like this year has gone by so quickly! I have several grad’s to buy something special for this spring, so I put together a graduation gift guide filled with gift ideas which will work for many grad’s this year.

Is your grad heading off to a fabulous new job? Why not gift her a practical yet fabulous work tote! I chose work totes from designers which are sturdy, long-lasting, and can handle a ton of wear and tear. Plus, they have “name status” without breaking the bank. Love that! Choose from a fun tote for a creative work environment or a solid color tote for a more conservative and professional work environment.

Everyone needs a scarf. A scarf is a classic accessory which she can keep for decades. I have several which I purchased in the 1990s and I still pull them out of my drawer and wear them often. Scarves are great because they take the place of a necklace, and when you are a new grad starting out, you don’t have the money to buy necklaces for every office outfit. A scarf can also add personal style to any look. Scarves work well in both creative and conservative work environments. Love that!

She worked hard to earn her degree, why not gift her with beautiful jewelry? Even a high school grad can receive a beautiful piece of grown-up jewelry for graduation. You cannot go wrong with gemstone bracelets, or classic pearls. They can be worn to the office, on weekends, and for dressy occasions. She will love them!

Not sure what to get? Every girl needs a practical yet on-trend handbag! This convertible handbag comes with a cross body strap and a short, trendy strap. She will love a new bag which offers classic style, and a bit of practicality. Love that!

One of the more special gifts are these beautiful stackable, gemstone bracelets made by a local designer who is also an amazing Mom. Her bracelets are affordable, and they are available in so many pretty gemstones! I love all the colors! She also has pretty mushrooms, and hearts for the gemstone collector. The ideal gift would be three bracelets that mom can stack. Or pick up one bracelet she can add to an existing collection. Love!
