As May quickly approaches, it is time to think about how you will show your friends and family who are graduating some love. Check out below for some unique gift ideas. If you are the grad, get some inspiration for what to ask for!

For the Grad with It All Figured Out

Got a friend with the perfect job lined up, apartment secured and not a worry in sight? Get them something they can use everyday for work! This BEIS Work Tote is a tried and true classic that’s perfect for lugging your laptop and whatever else you might need to the office. Want to go the more meaningful route? A watch is the ideal accessory for the corporate girls, and this Rosefield piece is the definition of affordable meets luxury.

For the Roomies

Want something you can give to all of your besties — no matter how different — and they’ll all love it? Try something personalized and from the heart! These wine tumblers from Etsy can be engraved with a PSU logo and their name and will be sure to be put to good use. Another cute option is an engraved picture frame with one of your favorite pictures of your crew — maybe even a graduation photo!

For the WFH Crew

Love it or hate it, working from home is here to stay, and chances are at least one of your besties will be working remotely come next fall. This starter Breville is the creme de la creme of espresso machines that will have your lattes, cappuccinos and classic coffees tasting better than Starbucks. Not much of a coffee drinker? These UGG Slippers will keep them cozy and make them feel a little more put together than their beat-up moccasins.

For the Girl That Has It All

A girl can never have too much jewelry! David Yurman has the best classic pieces that will last a lifetime. Want something a bit less expensive? Try enewton, gorjana, and Mejuri for simple pieces that won’t tarnish or break the bank.

Super picky? Try a nice perfume! Replica makes some great fragrances for every moment, including the fan favorites, Bubble Bath and Beach Walk. If you do not know where to begin, try to think of their go-to candle they always burn and get something from that scent family.
