It’s that time of year again. As the weather gets warm and the school year draws to a close, we all know someone who’s celebrating his or her last day, prepping for college, the workforce, or some other exciting new adventure. Remind them how much they mean to you with a token to help usher in their next chapter! Whatever their plan, I’m positive your grad will find some pretty handy uses for these gifts – and you’ll be fondly remembered each time they see it!
Remind them of home!
Nothing screams Marblehead quite as stylishly as our custom-madeRock Scissor Paper Mugs! Up the cool factor with a can or two of Panatea Ceremonial Grade Matcha, created by Marblehead native Jessica Lloyd and college beau-turned-hubby David Mandelbaum. Their top quality, finely ground green tea packs a punch of “calm alertness”, boosts metabolism, and is a super hip, less caffeinated, cleaner alternative to coffee for late night study sessions. Extra energy and an opportunity to support a homegrown business owner? Your grad will thank you for inspiring them to reach for the stars (and helping them stay awake to make it there!).
Help them feel at home!
We all miss the little comforts when we move away from our childhood homes, don’t we? Like dinner on the table and water bottles in the fridge? Pick up a Bobble, the water bottle that filters water as you drink! Because let’s face it, dorm water is gross. Throw in an extra pack of filters and they’ll have crisp, clean water all year straight from the tap – each filter is good for the equivalent to 300 plastic bottles of water, eliminating waste and providing a green, clean solution that is BPA, PVC and chlorine free.
NOBODY, male or female, should ship out without knowing how to prepare a nourishing home-cooked meal. If your future freshman is clueless in the kitchen, a Barefoot Contessa Cookbook by Ina Garten is just the thing. Extra points (and memories), if you volunteer to help them master a recipe! Of course, there’s always the campus cafeteria, but the day will come when they need a taste of home – don’t let them venture off unprepared!
Help them get away from home!
The key to a clean getaway? A set of Blue Q Recycled Bags! Made of 95% post-consumer material in a variety of sizes and eye-catching designs, they’re an eco-friendly way to stay organized on the go! Whether hauling groceries, books, or beach day essentials, plastic is so out! Help your grad take their first step into socially responsible adulthood with 1% of the sale of their bag supporting conservation work at The Nature Conservancy. Durable, reusable, and charitable? I’ll take it!
Don’t forget the card!
Stuff it with money or don’t, but you can’t go wrong with our beautiful congratulatory cards from Rifle Paper Co. Because everyone likes being reminded that the world is their oyster!
