Grad Gift Guide +



I still can’t believe it’s been two years since I graduated from college! While I’m loving post-grad life, I really wish I could redo my college graduation day. It was hands down one of the best days of my entire life thanks to all of my family and friends making my day incredibly special!
The grad gifts I appreciated the most were the ones that were most practical. Right after I graduated college, I spent all of my grad money investing in practical items that would help me navigate the workplace in style. Since grad gifts can be pretty expensive, I plan on using to save a bit of money and earn cash back while picking up these pricey statement pieces. What I love about is that they make saving money easy — there’s even a browser tool and a mobile app that will help you earn rewards and cash back while you’re shopping. 
Here are a few of my favorite grad gifts. Make sure to use and save a few extra bucks (enough money to get yourself a little present too!)
Because your grad has dozens of interviews and appointments that she needs to be on time for! A watch is also a great accessory you can wear to the office, on the weekends, it’s really appropriate any time!
A roomy tote is perfect for a post-grad’s first “big girl” job. Invest in a quality bag that will hold up and look chic at the same time!
Let’s face it: an entry level job probably isn’t going to allow your grad to purchase top tier beauty products. I love the Naked palette because it has every neutral shade you would ever want, and is makeup that is totally appropriate for any office environment.
As much as I love a good statement necklace, I love dainty, personalized necklaces that can be layered. This Dog Tag necklace from Baublebar is a really fun alternative to the typical monogram necklace, and you have plenty of room to create any message you’d like!
For all of those fabulous networking events your grad will attend! This is the least expensive option on this list; a great and thoughtful gift to give while you’re on a budget!
