Grad Gift Guide

Some of the links below are affiliate links. Thank you for using these and supporting Southern & Style!
It's that time of year, y'all...graduation season.
It's a happy occasion for some, but also somewhat sad because all of these people are growing up & moving on to new chapters of their lives.

Today I'm rounding up some gift ideas for the grad's in your life (options for boys AND girls!)
But before I jump into sharing a little about each item, I wanted to share some throwback photos from my graduations. . .
I mean, didn't we all use feathers for our drape shots back in 2011?
And thank goodness 🙌 for learning how to do my eyebrows after high school!
I love, love, loved my graduation shots from my college graduation-JSU is always a favorite, but man was it hot out their on that astroturf!
Alright-let's look at these gifts!

This can be a gift for boys or girls, because around graduation they always need blank thank you notes to write for all their favorite presents. This is a little more grown-up than the ones you pick up at Target.

I love a good journal for gifting and this one is perfect for recent graduates to write down their goals and plans, or just to remember important days in their lives.

I love gifting a good motivational book, I think you could definitely tailor it to the specific person you're gifting to but this is a good one for any grad!

This is the perfect gift for anyone going off to college or getting their first real home away from home. It's got great sound but is super compact and portable, plus it comes in a variety of colors.

If you know a grad who is moving into the dorms, especially dorms with a communal shower, please gift them a comfy, cozy robe!
This one is the perfect length and is so soft.

I remember for my sixth grade graduation, my Grandma gifted me my first monogrammed piece of fine jewelry and I still treasure that piece (even though my monogram has since changed!)
This is the perfect gift that's in a slightly higher price bracket, but doesn't break the bank.

I don't personally have a Keurig, but I think for anyone going into a dorm could definitely use one of these little gems.
You could toss in a pack of k-cups along with it so sweeten the gift!

A classic watch is an excellent gift for any new grad. This beautiful piece with a leather band and gold details would go with many different outfits and last for years to come.

Once again, another classic leather strap watch with slightly more trendy rose gold detailing. This would be a great, long lasting gift that is also water resistant.

This is a great uni-sex gift that can also be personalized; another great point is that it comes in at under $75!
It's long lasting and would be excellent for vacations or traveling back and forth from school to home.

What was your favorite gift you ever received for graduation?
Although checks and cash were always appreciated, there is just something special about a gift someone picked out especially for you!

 Until next time. . .
xoxo,
