With graduation season upon us, what better time to have special guest Katie of the fabulous blog, Let’s Be Preppy, with us to help us determine some of the best gifts for high school or college graduates! As a current student at the University of South Carolina, and lover of all things preppy, Katie is the perfect person to weigh in.
Check out Katie’s personal picks as she shares with us her gift guide for the preppy graduate!
The Acrylic Monogram Necklace Just like colored denim is a fun, fabulous trend this year, so are these whimsical colored acrylic necklaces! This makes a great gift for a college OR college-bound high-school grad!
The Personalized iPhone Case I’m a sucker for anything madras, and if you add a monogram on there, I just about can’t resist it!! This cute cover would make any girl swoon (for Swoozie’s!). Add a big bow (and maybe even that shiny new iPhone to boot) and this cover will be perfect to give to your grad!
The Personalized Cosmetic Case Staying organized for a grad is always important. Maybe your new grad is moving to hall-style dorms and she’ll be sharing a bathroom with 20 girls sometimes! Maybe your new grad has moved to her posh new, hole in the wall big-girl apartment and needs a small place to keep her beauty products! Whether you’re sharing with all your floormates or your New York City new roommate, this personalized cosmetic bag will make a great “thinking of you” present!
The Personalized Hugger Koozies are huge in college with me and my friends! Imagine how jealous your college girl’s friends will be when they see she’s got her own pink and green monogrammed koozie! Too stinkin’ cute!!
The Cupcake Folded Note Cards I’m a cupcake girl through and through, so these have my name all over them! I was even known as the “Cupcake Queen” during my time in high school! I have always hand-written thank you notes for gifts, but these notes are perfect to drop friends a note who may have also just graduated and moved or friends who are away at school for the first time!
The Chloe Necklace In college, space is a premium and you’re pressed for what you can bring. What does that mean? Looking for pieces and accessories that match a TON of stuff! This white Chloe necklace would pair great with a pink and green shift, color blocked top, or just jeans and a t-shirt!
