Graduation/Teen/college

While these gifts are perfect for a graduate, these also work well for holidays and birthdays for that teen or college student. Some of the items are perfect if they are setting up their first home, or if they need to travel to come back home.

For Her

 

O-VENTURE Key Ring

These key rings keep all your keys in one place and fit over your wrist like a bracelet, keeping them handy even when juggling books or bags. And it’s big enough to find when it’s dropped into a bottomless bag! 

A Throw

An extra throw blanket for cooler days and it then doubles as a blanket to take out for study breaks on the lawn.                                                                                                                                                            

Suitcase

Whether staying close to home or moving across the country, a stylish carry-on is a necessity.

Mom and dad will feel better knowing the car has a kit to aid in a roadside emergency. Want to add more? Wrap in a blanket and add some water bottles, protein bars and a first aid kit.

First Aid Kit

Living away from home can be hard, and even harder when you’re hurt or sick. Add in some ice packs, heating pads and Tylenol.    

 

GIFT CARDS

iTunes, Starbucks, McDonald's, Sephora, Target, gas stations, I sometimes give multiple, smaller dollar gift cards and put in separate envelopes and label as "beauty pick me up (Sephora), another with "late night food rush" (Restaurant), a "I need a supplies" (Target) and finally one with "emergency money needed" with a folded twenty or fifty inside.

tote bag

What girl doesn’t need a cute bag to load up all her extra stuff? I love the neutral look of this tote, so its going to appeal to alot of girls out there. This is from a local shop who also has an Etsy shop you need to check out. She has plenty of bags with alot of color if your recipient likes to standout.
