5 Graduate Gifts They Will Love

Along with spring comes graduations.  We are always pleasantly surprised at the graduation announcements and reception invitations we receive each year.  Those joyful young children are now young men and women ready to embark on a new adventure. My how time flies. Now for some thoughts on graduate gifts.

Scripture for the Graduate - Grace Elizabeth's

Here is a tried and true list of graduation gifts we have given over the years.  We like to give from the heart and that often means something handmade.  Now for those who are a bit harder to please, you can never go wrong in giving money!  Slipping a little cash in the package is always appreciated 🙂

Embroideried wash cloths by www.GraceElizabeths.com

Embroidered Washcloths

No more lost towels or washcloths.  This is a great idea for those going off to college.  If you don’t have a sewing machine that embroideries – ask around or find a local embroidery shop.  This gift is always a favorite.

Pinwheel Mug Rug

For those late night study sessions.  The mug rug adds the feel of home comfort and adds protection to those pricey textbooks that students tend to stack and put drinks on.  Click here for inspiration.

Easy -n- Quick Scarf by Grace Elizabeth's

Easy -n- Quick Ladder Scarf 

Who doesn’t like a scarf?  Knit this in a cotton/linen blend for warm seasons or bulky wool for cold seasons.  Your graduate will love a warm scarf for those brisk walks to class during the winter. Well maybe not if you attend college in the south.  But I don’t know anything about that. Nebraska is COLD.
