Top Graduation Gifts of 2021

For Both Him + Her!



This class of graduating seniors are entering the world with a different perspective than most due to COVID taking over their entire last school year. Can you imagine viewing the brave new world on their own through their eyes? I sure can't. Be sure to get them a great gift to show how proud you are of them and their accomplishments, despite the madness of this year. Whether your grad is going to college or entering the new world -- all graduates are in need of the items below.


Do you have a graduate in the family? Please pass along my Congratulations, if so!


My own little brother, Turner, will be graduating from A&M with a Degree in Public Health this May! I am super proud of him and can't wait to see what life has in store for him. I know he's meant for great, big things!!! So believe me what I say that I spent some time putting these together, trying to think of gifts that really mean something.




Black Tory Burch Purse

I'm so here for the monochromatic look of black on black and LOVE this Tory purse. She'll look chic and well-kept walking to school or into her first job with this one.


Tortoise Shell Tory Burch Sunnies

I own these and several other Tory sunnies. They are great quality and hold up over time, which is something I always look for in my sunglasses (they always seem to fall apart?).


Personalized Journals

These personalized journals (you could even personalized by subject!) will help her look professional while keeping notes - whether that be at college or at her first job!


Custom College Faux-Starbucks Cups

I love these custom college, faux-Starbucks cups. These would be super cute for your grad if they're heading into college!

Monogrammed EarPods case

These are just too adorable and everyone needs a good case anyways, right?


David Yurman Bracelet

When I graduated law school, my parents got me a really nice David Yurman as a graduation present. I treasure this bracelet and think of it as a "coming of age" type of gift. I actually got my little sister this David Yurman bracelet when she graduated college to show her how proud I was of her!


Pink/White Personalized Champagne Glasses

I love these stemless nonbreakable champagne flutes, even more that they're personalized! How cute would these be for a group of girls graduating together?!


Barefoot Blanket

I've blogged about all of my Barefoot Blankets before, but they are worth obsessing over again and again. I got my aunt and mom hooked on them too now after I got them both blankets for Christmas! Believe me they are WORTH the price.


Monogrammed Towels

I own cocktail napkins from Blue Bamboo Embroidery and am obsessed with her work. Take a look at her site and you'll see what I mean. I've scoured Etsy for the cutest cocktail napkins and towels and nothing beats her quality and design.


Wireless Charger

I own this wireless charger and it has solved Martin + I fighting over the phone chargers because it charges up to two phones at one time! Or you can be selfish and charge your iPhone and EarPods.


Laptop Case

I actually own this laptop case too and LOVE it. My computer fits perfectly in it and I love the magnetic clasp that closes the top. No bulky zippers!


O-Ring Keyring

I use my O-Ring every.single.day. without fail. I love this thing. They last forever and are just super useful when you need an extra hand. This one is even cuter with multicolor confetti!


Watch

I am obsessed with this watch (as well as this one for women!) and am filing this one away for the next time I need a gift for Martin. I love the black out look!


Humidifier

No matter if your grad is moving into a dorm or into their first home/apartment -- a humidifier is always a good idea. This one has great reviews on Amazon and is so cute!


Birth Stone Ring

This birth stone ring is Perodot, which is my birth stone! But, you can get your graduates birthstone as well in both gold or silver. My grandmother gave me a birthstone necklace the birthday I moved away for college - it makes a memorable gift!


Cross Necklace

What my grandparents really gave me for graduation - a cross necklace to always remember that I was raised in the church. Such an incredibly meaningful gift to me and a necklace I still to this day have and treasure.








Wireless Charger

I own this wireless charger and it has solved Martin + I fighting over the phone chargers because it charges up to two phones at one time! Or you can be selfish and charge your iPhone and EarPods.


Laptop Case

I actually own this laptop case too and LOVE it. My computer fits perfectly in it and I love the magnetic clasp that closes the top. No bulky zippers!


Monogrammed Dobb Kit

Every guy I know owns a dob kit and I'm pretty sure it starts with their mom giving them one when they go to college. This one is good quality as well as monogrammed - less likely to get confused as someone else in the communal bathrooms.


Personalized Keyring

He can't complain that he lost his keys and can't come see you with this keyring!


Watch

This watch is sick. I love, love, love it and am filing it away the next time I need to get Martin a gift. I think this would look great with a professional work outfit or just with whatever.


Personalized Knife

All guys love knifes. If yours doesn't have one yet - nows a good time to get him one now that he'll be on his own. We all know not all men are super capable of always having everything they need.


Personal Cooler (personalization is available)

One of the cooler things I found while online "browsing" is this personal cooler. I got one of these for my little brother two years ago (he's graduating college this year!) and he loved it!


Monogrammed Mousepad

Besides the monogram, its almost impossible to find a decent looking leather mousepad for your office desk. This one is perfect for a man's desk and is the perfect amount of too much.


Monogrammed Wallet

Are you getting that I love monogrammed things at this point? Literally throw a monogram on it and it makes it 10x cuter!!


Humidifier

No matter if he's moving into his first place or the dorms, he'll need something to help fend off the smells...it helps with breathing too.


Custom Cutting Board

I got this exact cutting board for Martin for our anniversary (traditionally, your 5th anniversary gift is wood) and we love it! It turned out really well and is great quality.


Allen Edmond Shoes

I bought my husband a pair of Allen Edmond shoes for his 30th birthday and he says he'll never go back to any other dress shoe for court. These are the real deal and worth every penny, but an investment if you can't catch them on sale (which this pair is btw!!).
