It’s May! End of School – Means Graduation! (Graduation Gift Ideas – GDGC Product List)

It’s May!! It always seems to be one of the busiest times of year for everyone…mainly, because school is ending! And, with that, means…Graduations!

Take a peek at the Graduation Gift ideas that I showcased on Great Day Green Country today….

LOVING LivyLu! They put the ‘sparkle and shine’ into your favorite college gear – ‘College Couture’! Super cute tees and dresses to show support for your favorite school/team.
Who says you have to wear jeans and basic crewneck Tshirts to the football game? Or any game for that matter?
Perfect for the new grad that wants to stand out in a crowd!

 ImAnerdClothing is a fun and quirky Tshirt company spearheaded by, none other than, a NERD! His name is Anthony and he is determined and motivated to give ‘nerds’ a good name! And, I thought these Tshirts were a fun gift for any graduate – girl or guy.

Gift Baskets – On The Corner

 I stole one of these gift ‘basket’ ideas from my Mom. She is a teacher and would always put together a ‘school supply’ storage box for her graduating students. It was always filled FULL with all kinds of school supply ‘randomness’ that you may not think you need…until…you need it!

But, I’m a big fan of gift baskets in general! Who doesn’t love a gift with lots of little gifts inside. And, you can customize them by a theme and/or favorite college, as I did with these. The OSU gift basket was catered more towards a girl with OSU sunglasses, earrings, notepad, watch and more. While, the OU gift basket was catered more towards the guy as I used a microwave popcorn tub for the basket and filled it with OU plastic cups, playing cards, and coasters. Customize it to fit graduate receiving the gift basket!

School Bags - On The Corner

 (My apologies – no idea why this picture turned out cloudy!)

What new graduate doesn’t need a new school bag? LOTS of books! Heavy books…all around campus! Enough said! Customize it to the school of their choice.

‘Roommate Refreshers’ – On The Corner

 And, last but not least, ‘roommate refreshers’. I couldn’t resist these as your ‘graduate gag gift’. Let’s have some fun with the reality that they will have to share their dorm with a roommate. And, a dorm room doesn’t always smell ‘fresh’…if you know what I mean. So, why not give them poo-pourri or trap-a-crap bathroom air freshener. I had to show these on the segment – they just cracked me up! And, for a more ‘serious’, ‘less humorous’ approach to refreshing a room, why not use the candle warmer lamp. It’s perfect for avoiding the ‘open flame’ restrictions.

Congratulations to ALL the new graduates! The best is yet to come…..
