It’s graduation season for thousands of high school and college students across the country. Four years of late nights and long lectures have come and gone, and the real world — whether that means going off to college or landing their first professional job — is just around the corner. Give your new grad the gift of style with a few perfect picks from SampleHouse.
For graduating high schoolers, nothing beats a few dorm room essentials to ensure a successful first year of college. SampleHouse is stocked with dorm decor such as pillows, coffee mugs, travel tumblers, lamps, rugs, stationary and everything else you could possibly pack into a dorm room. While new grads typically crave cash, setting them up with the things they need (and the things they may not even know they need) is a surefire way to ensure they’ll start out on the right foot.
The first year of college is always a difficult transition for reasons beyond academics. Independence comes with a lot of responsibility, and that includes household tasks like cooking for oneself. Most new high school grads have limited cooking experience, so a comprehensive, easy-to-follow cookbook is one of those “I didn’t even know I needed this!” gifts that keeps on giving. SampleHouse has plenty of cookbooks for all skill levels, and they make a great gift alongside a set of dishes or flatware. And if the first few culinary trials don’t go as planned, a few Trapp or Tyler Candle Company candles can help erase the memory of a dish gone terribly wrong.
High school and college grads can experience significant emotional ebbs and flows after graduation. For many people, writing helps organize these emotions and can even provide a little catharsis when life gets complicated. Give your grad a meaningful gift with a journal and some colorful, high-quality pens. Whether they use it for writing, drawing or just scrawling some notes, a journal can be a touching gesture for someone about to embark upon a big journey.
If you’ve got a college or grad school graduate looking to raise their sophistication factor, give the gift of glam with some bar essentials. Cocktail books, bar cart essentials, tumblers, swizzle sticks, cocktail napkins, stemware, wine glass charms and more are the perfect way to bring a little class to the grad gift game.
Happy graduation season to all new grads!
