LIVING // Quick! Graduation Gifts

College graduations happened for a lot of folks last week, with high school graduations coming up within the next few weeks. Thoughtful, original graduation gift ideas can be hard to come by. Sometimes a Target gift card won’t do the trick, or you know you’ll be the third person gifting a copy of “Oh! The Places You’ll Go!”

Here’s a selection of gifts appropriate for a few different social situations.
// For your photography/design major friend // Diana F+ CMYK Camera from Lomography.com

The Diana camera is a classic sixties lomo camera that lends a dreamy quality to the shots it takes. This is a perfect gift to capture post-grad summer moments and turn it into a scrapbook when it’s over. There are several editions of the Diana, but we love the CMYK tribute. Perfect for a design major!

// For a bf/bf // Thin Leather Wallet from Mr. Lentz

This ultra thin wallet is perfect for summer adventures that happen post graduation. It packs the essentials without too much bulk, plus you can get it personalized with your dude’s initials. According to Mr. Lentz himself, the materials he uses are upcycled and sustainable. He even creates his own dyes for the American-made full grain vegetable tanned leather.

// For a sister or friend // "Keep the Wild in You" Poster from MofEHome

With this, you’ll give your grad her first piece of dorm art, and it’ll be a little more unexpected than an Audrey Hepburn poster. We love this 8x10 piece from M of E Home, available in black and gold. It’s a phase that’s good to remember when you’re starting the next chapter.
