Send off your graduate in style…
I love traveling and I LOVE luggage. I think that luggage is a great way to encourage a recent graduate on their new journey, whether it’s going off to college, graduate/law/medical studies, a new career, or that backpacking trip through Europe they’ve been planning.
Overstock has a great luggage guide that I’ve borrowed from and added some ideas of my own.
Get to shopping so they can start packing!

There’s no excuse for not keeping in touch…
A great and thoughtful gift for many occasions is stationery. It can be personalized and is wonderful for someone making a change in his or her life.
It’s a great gift for graduates who will be sending thank you cards for all of the great gifts that they receive and all of the interviews they have with potential employers. It’s also a wonderful send off for someone leaving a job or retiring to encourage them to keep in touch.

Special times deserve special gifts…
Some people may be on the fence about giving gifts to expectant mothers, but I’m not. My feet are firmly planted in the grass of the yard that says DO IT. But I do have some caveats given the stage of the pregnancy.
She picks up kids, don’t make her pick up her laptop…
These days it’s all about finding balance. Help your favorite working mom take a load off by gifting her with a rolling laptop bag. Rolling laptop bags today are gorgeous. They come in a variety of fabrics and colors and you are guaranteed to find one that fits your working mom’s style. EBags has the McKlein USA styles, which are some of my favorites.

Cell phones can provide the time, but not the style…
So I’m a big fan of watches and I happen to think that they make classic and appropriate gifts.
Consider giving the mom in your life a timepiece.
It’s jewelry after all.
Photo Books Make Great Gifts for Grandparents…
In this day of all things digital, a personalized photo book of the kids may just be the ticket for grandparents, great aunts, or God parents longing to receive pictures of the kids they love the most.
Fortunately there are many options, you just need to figure out the one that best suits your needs and budget.
