10 Personalized Items To Gift Your Favorite New Grad

Graduating from college is a huge life accomplishment: For many people, it marks the official beginning of adulthood and the many responsibilities that come with it. So, it’s only appropriate the occasion is commemorated with a thoughtful gift — something that adequately expresses ” congrats on not having to deal with term papers ever again ” while preparing them for real life.

Personalized gifts make for extra special gifts for these soon-to-be alums.
