Graduation GIfts Under $75

I can't believe the end of this week will be the beginning of May!! May brings lots of celebrations, including graduations. Whether it's High School or College graduation, they both signify a new transition and chapter in life.  I was recently asked for some ideas for graduation gifts. Although it has been a few years since I graduated, I can still remember a few things I received. While cash is always appreciated, sometimes an actual gift is a bit more meaningful.  Today's list of gifts are all under $75!

Anytime you are starting a new phase in life, organization is key. A custom May Designs agenda is a great way to get organized. I use one of their notebooks and agendas daily for blog scheduling and brainstorming.  Whether it's for personal note or a message to a potential employer, personalized stationery will always be used.  I love to give travel accessories. This jewelry organizer and this jewelry roll are both compact but hold a lot of jewelry. Years ago I was given this curling iron holder and I still use it daily! 

If the graduate is about to start college, a towel wrap is a necessity for dorm life. Etsy has tons of options and most can be personalized.  These Anthropologie candles will make a new house, apartment or dorm room feel like home! 

Times of transition can be quite stressful for the new graduate. A massage or facial gift card can be a nice surprise and will make them take some time for themselves. If the new graduate will be driving a lot, a gas gift card can help with those expenses.

I hope this list gives you a lot of ideas and inspiration for the graduate in your life!
