Gift Guide: Recent Grads

Wednesday, December 2, 2020

I am going to be honest with you guys, gift guides are one of my favorite blog posts to read from other bloggers. Less because I need ideas for gifts (I plan early), but more because I have a personal shopping problem.

These are gifts you could really use for a lot of different people, however the general theme seemed to fit 'recent grads' the best. Some of these items I already have and have been using for years and a few are on my shopping list 😉.

Ice Bucket: 
Totally on my shopping list. I have a gold bar cart with simple décor and think this would match perfect.

Wouldn't this look perfect in an entryway or on a coffee table? Chic and definitely a statement piece. 

Dyson Hair Dryer: 
I do not have this hair dryer, however my friends that I have spoken to about it rave about how amazing it is. It is definitely a long term investment tons of people would love.

Summer Fridays Mask:
I love this line of face masks. A great way to relax and they have never broken me out which is a huge plus! This is a great more budget friendly gift.

Another great investment. I travel with my fiancé and we love hard shell luggage because of their durability.

Wine Glasses:
Do these need an explanation?

I have these plates and love them! White dishes are convenient because they are easy to mix and match with other sets and pieces.

Simple diamond studs make a great gift! They will last forever and are timeless. 

A great 'twist' on a class ring. Class rings don't seem to get worn for long after a graduation, however a piece like this is still symbolic while being slightly more timeless.

Key Fob:
I have the same key fob in a different pattern and love it! A more affordable, while still very practical gift. 

Tan Jacket:
I have this jacket in the orange color from a few years ago (if you love Breakfast at Tiffany's, you know) and I wear it all the time. It is so comfy and high quality, while being a fraction of the cost of the one from the full J. Crew.

Black Jacket:
Jackets like this last forever when they are taken care of and are so practical. I love the simplicity of a classic black jacket.

Jewelry Box:
I received this years ago myself as a Christmas gift and it is still in perfect condition. It is beautiful in person and such a useful gift.

Another timeless piece. If a natural diamond is too expensive, I highly recommend a simulated one which costs a fraction. They are just as beautiful!

A practical and affordable gift! When I moved out of my house, I literally owned no cups haha. My fiancé and I have started a collection of Tervis's. I love them because they will repair cups if they break and fall under their warranty. I can personally attest to the fact they do this since I have now had two repaired! It was super easy and my cups look good as new. We try to get our Tervis cups from different trips or local shops so they are more sentimental.

Cocktail Napkins:
On my shopping list, I adore these! These are hand embroidered  and from a small business on Etsy.

One of the most used things I own. I received mine as a gift from Marley Lilly a few years ago and use it multiple times a month. This is awesome for quick trips and as a carry-on. The convenience of it being fabric as a carry-on is it fits a lot easier above your seat!

Thanks for stopping by!
