gifties for graduates

somehow it's already nearing the end of may, and graduations of all sorts are upon us! here are some of our favorite treats, large and small, for those donning caps and gowns.

egg press die-cut triumph' card

hobo wallets, a classic grad gift and great with a little somethin' somethin' tucked inside!

for those who are celebrating graduation by backpacking across europe or cross-country road tripping, a travel journal, like this one by elum, is a great way to remember a summer of freedom.

we've recently gotten in a lot of new jewels, from sweet silver tashi to lasercut molly m pendants, but one of my favorites for graduation is this pyrrha necklace with a 'wings and wheat' seal. the wings represent protection and the wheat the achievement of hopes and dreams.

graduation often means starting a new job or a new school, and that, in turn, means a new bag! this shimmery silver number from highway is a great bag for either, and only one of many styles we have in the shop.

a few more ideas:

snatch up a new dryads frame and insert a picture of the graduate on his or her first day of school. (this would also work as a gift from the graduate to parents -- thanks, mom and dad, for getting me this far!)

address books paired with a nice pack of stationery from snow & graham or smudge ink are great for graduates who are moving elsewhere. don't forget to pencil in your own address before you gift it!

come visit us at the shop, and we'll be happy to help you find just the thing for your graduates!
