Graduation Gift Guide for Girls

Can you believe it?! One day she was making mud pies, and the next she is talking about course credits, debating her career and offering investment advice. 🙂 Time flies. We can’t make it slow down…but we can help you enjoy the memories you get to create. We’ve collected terrific gifts for the little girl who’s now a young lady about to take this world by storm. (Looking for gifts for guys? We have a great guide for those here!)

Monogrammed Handkerchief

Handkerchiefs take us back to a time of our grandmothers and great grandmothers. Dressed to the nines for Sunday service, handkerchief neatly tucked into their purses or Bibles, these women loved us well and gave us something to aspire to be.

Today, women’s handkerchiefs are making a comeback, and we are here for it. The femininity. The versatility. The personalization. We love it all.

These scallop edges are gorgeous.
Of course, we love the crochet edges as well. See them here.

Button Bag

I’ll admit it – I have a bag for my bag, which also has its own bag. It’s a lot. But, what I’m trying to say is this – women need little bags. These smaller bags, like this button bag, keep our larger ones organized.

This 6″ button bag is perfect for nail polish, makeup, jewelry, or any other important object that’s sure to get lost in bigger bags.

Personalized Stationery

Thank you notes are on the horizon for this young lady – grad gifts, job interviews, church members who pour so much into her life, neighbors who love her as their own. She’s about to write a lot of personal correspondence. For this reason, customized stationery makes a great gift at graduation. (Also, this post may be helpful for writing thank you notes.)

Luna Card – This flat card is made of thick paper and is personalized with raised ink. We love the femininity of this card.

We have so many beautiful stationery sets. The Delavan Monogrammed Note, the Mayfair Card, and the Sequoia Portrait Enclosure are three more of our favorites.

Wooden Monogram

We’re in the names business. We truly believe your name (and your initials) are significant. So, of course, we’re fans of wooden monograms for her new dorm room or apartment.

This 18″ wooden monogram is a classic accent for any room. It’s made of 1/2″ birch.

Personalized Notepad

My to-list is always a mile long. Yours? (I’m betting it’s the same.) So, I’ve come to the conclusion that you can never have too many notepads, and customized ones – well, those are even better! You need one in the kitchen for the grocery list, one at your desk for business tasks, one in the car for random thoughts that pop into your head. You get the drift. Notepads make great gifts. They’re so dang useful!

We love the Napa 3-Tablet Set (above) because what’s better than one cute notepad? 🙂 Three of them!!

Laundry Bag

Gray Chambray Laundry Bag, aqua thread, scalloped fishtail font

We most likely remember the laundry tales from college. I would pile that bag as full as I could and drag it home to save on quarters and make sure my clothes smelled like home! Good news is that times haven’t changed much! Laundry bags are still a great graduation gift!

Canvas Cosmetic Bag

Canvas Cosmetic Bag, hot pink trim, matching hot pink thread, natural circle font

Whether representing college colors, matching luggage or their favorite color combo, these canvas cosmetic bags are great to toss in your purse to go. Great for lipstick, pens or any collection you’d like, this is a bag they’ll enjoy for years!

We’ll keep adding to this graduation gift list for girls! If you have questions or gift suggestions, please email me at Lastly, thank you for letting us play a small role in this really big occasion. We’re honored.
