Grad Gifts Your Friends Will Actually Appreciate


Awesomeness continues after advertisement

The end of the school year is upon us and that means its time for grad parties on grad parties on grad parties!! It can be hard to come up with gift ideas for all the friends and classmates that are celebrating graduation. So, here’s a bit of advice: don’t go for the typical “personal” picture frame and photo. Show that you’re the one friend who truly ~cares~ with one of these thoughtful gift ideas. They’ll think of you once they get to college and realize how rad your gift truly is.


Trendy Planner

If there is one single thing that makes doing homework slightly better, it’s having a bomb*ss planner to help you manage it all with style. There are tons and tons of adorable options out there, you truly can’t go wrong.


Homesick Candles

The perfect, thoughtful gift for any friend that is moving out of state for school. These specific state inspired candles are a cute way for your friend to bring a piece of home with them to school regardless of how far they go! Plus, it can also serve as a nice little pick me up anytime a bit of homesickness strikes.


Coordinate Necklace

If you’re looking for something a little bit more sentimental, try this one on for size. Like actually try one on, they look killer on everyone. A necklace with the coordinates of your home town is such a sweet gift and it’ll be a lovely reminder of the memories you guys have together.


Target or Walmart Giftcard

Giftcards get a bad rap cause they can seem impersonal but this is not at all the case. As a broke college student, there is truly no greater gift than realizing that you don’t have to spend your own money on snacks or $13 shampoo. #blessed 💯 💯

Laundry Starter Kit

Might as well get someone stuff they’ll actually use! Plus, then they’ll think of you every time they do laundry – awww nothing smells of true friendship like dirty laundry! 😉 But actually, Tide to Go is the key to success in college, it’ll save you in a pinch and help you make friends (with other messy eaters) too! Nice! Throw in some Bounce Dryer Sheets, Tide Pods and maybe a bit of OxiClean as the cherry on top. Oh baby!!

Portable Charger

Cash me outside howbow dah. Y’know cause you can charge your phone outside and stuff?? Yeah that was brutal joke, sorry. In all seriousness though, a dead phone is soooo inconvenient. It kills vibes like no other. Portable chargers are super clutch and bonus: you’ll still have your friend’s back even if you aren’t at school with them.


Travel/Cosmetic Bags

A cute gift + incentive to visit each other at school during the next year! You can never go wrong with a duffel/weekend bag, but if you’re looking for something on the smaller (and less pricey) side a cool make-up bag is always super handy. Like without fail. Cannot stress that enough. Especially if your friend happens to be a highkey make-up lover.

Makeup Bags available right now.

Bedside Phone Shelf

A super handy addition to any dorm room. It’s something that probably won’t be a top priority for your friends when they race around frantically trying to find everything they need for their dorm. They’ll end up being super thankful that they had you to think of all the little things.
