Graduation Season

If you are a senior in high school then you are already feeling the pressure of graduation which is only in a few short weeks! It feels like just yesterday that I was graduating from high school and that was 3 years ago. If you're like me, you are getting invited to a zillion graduation parties and of course you need to bring a gift. For your good friends, I recommend getting something special, however, if you are attending a graduation party and don't know what to get, here are some things that college students will use a lot and actually will need!
Tervis Tumbler. Whether you get a monogrammed one, a school spirit one or just a cute design, there are so many options to choose from. They also have several different sizes to choose from! I use mine daily and put everything from coffee, to iced tea, to diet coke. 
 Monogrammed shower wrap. I got mine from a friend and it is as cute as can be and perfect for dorm style bathrooms!
A magazine subscription is a great idea! That way, your grad has something to look forward to every month in the mail! My favorite magazine is Town and Country!

Vera Bradley Jewlery Case. Ever since I have been in college, I have traveled on the weekends more than I ever have before. This is perfect because it collapses and can be stored away in a small dorm room but holds a lot of jewelry for a girl on the go! 
L.L. Bean monogrammed duffel bags. These are seriously the greatest. This picture is from my packing tips post and I have used my L.L. Bean duffel bags for literally every trip! A laptop bag is also another great gift idea. Mine is Betsey Johnson and brightens up my time while at the library.

An ID holder is perfect for any girl. Whether she is preppy or even a tomboy, everyone needs something to hold their ID, money, and cards and keys! I love this Just Madras one!
What are you getting for your grad friends? Next up I'm going to do grad gifts for college students! Have a fabulous day!

another college necessity of mine is a lap desk! i do a lot of work from the comfort of my bed, so this has been huge! and cute first semester at college, i made a point to send personal notes to many of my loved ones!

I love all those ideas. Also a cute Lilly planner would be nice since I use mine EVERYDAY to stay on top of assignments and social events.

I can't wait for the college grad gifts. I need ideas on what to get all my sorority sisters who are leaving me for the real world. Can't believe that will be me next year!!
