Graduation Gift {For the Preppy Graduate}

Graduation Gift Idea Preppy Graduate Version via ComeHomeForComfort.com

The end of the school year is upon us which means that graduation season is in full swing right now. You probably know at least a couple people that are graduating from either high school or college, which has sent you out to the stores in search of graduation presents.

My sister-in-law is graduating from high school in just a couple weeks (How did that happen?! She was 14 when I started dating my husband!), so I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect graduation gift for her. Allison (yeah, we share the same name) is a huge lover of all things preppy – AKA Lilly Pulitzer and Vera Bradley – so I wanted to get her things that would not only compliment her style but also be useful for college.

Buying name brand things such as Lilly Pulitzer can get a little expensive, but if you shop at smaller boutiques instead of buying from the brand’s website, you can usually find some good clearance items. I scored some awesome items for her graduation while on vacation and I love how her gift turned out!

When shopping, I tried to think of what I would have wanted when I was going to college. Honestly, I would totally use all of these items now!

Lilly Pulitzer Market Bag – every college student has a ton of stuff to tote around, so I thought this Market Bag would be perfect for books, laundry, groceries, etc.

Vera Bradley Student Agenda – Allison has always used a planner for high school, and as a lover of all things organized, I couldn’t resist this adorable student agenda! I also love how it starts in May 2015 and goes until December 2016.

Vera Bradley ID Case– I had one of these when I was in college and it was perfect for holding my student ID. It’s a hassle to always be pulling your ID out of your wallet, so a clear-front case simplifies all those times you need to access your ID quickly.

Initial 16 Ounce Tervis – no college student can be expected to survive without a way to carry coffee to class. This was a no-brainer.

I’m also going to add a pack of Sharpies to her gift, but I haven’t had a chance to pick them up yet!

Do you have any graduation gift suggestions? Please share!

  1. I was just at our local store that sells all sorts of gifts including Vera and Lily. I hoped to find a Lily Insulated Coffee Cup and they were out!! The salesperson told me that they were all gone as they are a great graduation gift!! None of my adult children drink coffee but apparently the younger generation is on board!! BTW, Loved all the goodies you purchased!!


  2. What a fun gift!! I love all the thought you put into finding the perfect things for your favorite grad. I’d love a new planner and I carried my id case for four years when I was in college. She’s going to LOVE it!!
