Gift Guide: Congrats, Grad!

Gift Guide- For the Graduate

Since I know several people who will be graduating over the next several weeks, I thought it would be fun to gather up a few gift ideas for graduates!  You can check out all the links in the full post over on the Etsy New York team blog! :)

Tell me: Are you planning to attend a graduation in the next few months?


  • Alice Graham

    Wow. All those gifts are absolutely stunning. I will have to buy my mom earrings kinda like those ones above.

    • Nnenna

      Thanks Alice- glad you like them!

  • Courtney

    These are great! I’m having a really low key grad this coming weekend (my dad’s health made my parents unable to travel so no family will be around and I crapped out on the academic job market so I don’t have a ton to celebrate) but I still hope I get a thoughtful present or two.

    • Nnenna

      Thanks Courtney! Aww, I’m sorry to hear about your tough luck with the job market, but you definitely still have reason to celebrate! Tomorrow’s the big day, right? Hope it’s a great one! :)

  • Imogen

    Great idea, they are all so sweet. Can’t wait until I have finished my degrees. Only have until the end of this year at university.

    • Nnenna

      Thank you Imogen :) You must be so excited that you’ll be finishing later this year!

  • Giovanna

    Cute picks! Loving those bangles!


    • Nnenna

      Thank you Giovanna! I think they’re really cute too! :)

  • Mary

    Very cute picks! I would’ve loved these when I graduated. :)

    • Nnenna

      Thank you Mary! =)

  • Daniela

    thanks for the comment over at my blog! I LOVE and now need those heart rings. Are they phalange rings?

  • Closet Fashionista

    Ooh so many cute pieces!!! I love those rings on the top right :)

    • Nnenna

      Thanks Megan!

  • Jennifer

    The “Your Future is so Bright…” card looks so nice and fitting for the occasion, not to mention witty.

    • Nnenna

      Yes, I love a witty card! :)

  • Rodellee

    I’m not attending any graduations but these are just cute gifts in general for anything!

      Thank you Rodelle! I agree, these could be great gifts for a birthday or holiday too! :)

  • Bonnie

    I am so glad that none of these gifts look like paperweights. Who wants a paperweight? I’m not even sure what they do … I love your ideas. These gifts are super cute and look personal.

      Thanks Bonnie! Haha, I don’t know what you do with a paperweight either, other than use it for decoration maybe?!

  • Claire

    oohhh cool, thank you for this. seriously i never know what to get graduates except cash. but it’s fun to get a gift too!

    • Nnenna

      You’re very welcome Claire- I’m glad to share these gift ideas! :) But trust me, graduates always love cash too! ;)

  • Hogger & Co.

    Those are all very thoughtful and I’m sure helpful for those looking for a grad gift. The Sunglasses are my fave.

    • Nnenna
