Graduation Gift Guide
Graduation season is upon us - that time of year when we watch our nearest and dearest toss their caps in the air and then prepare to start the next exciting chapter of their lives. Wondering what to give a your favorite teenager headed off to college? How about a new college graduate about to enter the “real world.” Prep Obsessed has gifts available at every price point for every grad in your life. Earn your degree in incredible gift giving using these suggestions from the Prep O team!
Letter boards are having a major moment right now, and for good reason. They are a fun, easy way to add some personality to any space, including dreary dorm rooms or office cubicles. Display a funny saying, add a motivational quote, or leave a message for a friend. With 144 plastic letters included, your favorite graduate is only limited by her imagination.
Give the gift of girl power! This is the perfect gift for a girl ready to take on the world! This candle will remind her she is a strong woman every time she lights it, whether she’s away from home for the first time or tapping away at that glass ceiling. Plus, 10% of the profits from each candle purchased go towards helping incarcerated women through “A New Way of Life.”
Talking, texting, taking selfies . . . theses days we all push our phones to the limit. A portable iPhone charger is essential for the girl on the go. This adorable charger features an alligator clasp and gold ring to easily attach to a purse, backpack, or set of keys. It looks cute, while making sure your favorite graduate is never out of touch, or out of battery.
These Tervis stainless tumblers come in a variety of designs, but the “All Over Flamingo & Pineapple” is a Prep O favorite. The easy close, spill proof lid make this cup ideal for carting around campus or morning commutes. These tumblers will keep your coffee hot through marathon study sessions or long staff meetings. It can also keep your beverage of choice cold through pregame tailgates or well earned weekends at the beach.
Pearls are a must have accessory for every Prep O girl, and this is the perfect classic necklace to dress up just about any outfit. From jeans and a tee to a little black dress, these versatile pearls will be the necklace your grad reaches for again and again.
If you know a Prep O girl headed off to college, this gift is both stylish and practical! Your new grad is going to be doing a lot of walking. Classes can be on opposite sides of a sprawling campus and freshman parking is always far from where you need to be. The navy and white stripes on this stylish jacket bring a little cheer when the weather is dreary.
When she has an eight o’clock class and a hair situation that cannot be fixed by dry shampoo, this baseball cap will be your college girl’s new bestie. This cap comes in a variety of color and monogram choices, so you can even order one in your grad’s school colors.
Thanks to the PrepO girls, selecting a special gift is as easy as that underwater basket weaving class everyone is always talking about. Maybe even easier because you can shop from home in your pajamas. Go ahead and give yourself an A in gift giving - you deserve it!
