The month of May brings forth lots of events and opportunities to purchase gifts. Mother's Day has just passed and now grad party and wedding season is upon us! The easiest gift for grads is a gift card (seriously you can't go wrong with these), but if you are looking for something a little more personal I've got some easy solutions for you!
1. 8x10 Print + Frame
A lot of grads are headed off to college, where decorating options are limited. College dorms need a little touch of personality to help them feel homey. Find a cute 8x10 print (like this one available in the Machelle Kolbo Design Studio Etsy Shop) and purchase a frame. This gift is a great way to give grads something personal that they can use to decorate their dorm. Let's be honest, a monogrammed towel does not have to be the only personal gift grads get.
2. Cards + Postage
We live in a digital world where everyone is just a call, text, snap, tweet or post away. While snail mail may be becoming a thing of the past I would like to suggest that it isn't. There is still something special about snail mail, especially when you are away from home at college. Gift your grad a set of cards, fun pencils (the ones pictured are from Rifle Paper), and a set of postage stamps. Adding the set of stamps makes it that much easier, and therefore more likely that they will put that set of stationery to good use.
For grads that you want to encourage in their faith, gift a journal and a devotional book. One of my all time favorite devotional books, that I still use to this day, was gifted to me at my high school graduation. These are practical things that can help encourage graduates as they start this next chapter after high school graduation.
Our Dwell Deeply Journals pair perfectly with devotional books to help you get the most out of your quiet times. They are also perfect for encouraging someone in their faith.
Enjoy these easy suggestions for grad gifts! I hope this helps you find quick, personal gifts for those you need to celebrate. Remember, if all else fails grab a gift card. :)
