The coming of spring brings all sorts of happy times and new beginnings. One special part of this season I love is ALL the upcoming graduation parties. If you haven’t already started getting the invites - you will soon. BUT what the heck do we get this age group for a gift? Does anyone else feel like this is THE HARDEST age group to shop for?! It is tough finding a gift that is useful, meaningful, and also something they will enjoy. 

SO here we go. We’ve compiled a list of our favorite grad gifts. They are simple and sweet, meaningful and useful, and really easy to add in some extra cash or a gift card. 

Number One: Prepare Me For Mug 

Something about this mug brings a sense of calm and a sense of peace. Heading into life as a college student can be nerve wracking and scary. This mug is perfect to combat the Sunday scaries, or pull your student through an all nighter writing a paper. 

Next up: Mug Warmer!

Available in blue and green, they are perfect for a desk or coffee table. Plug it in, push the button and place the mug on the warmer to keep your hot drink at the perfect temperature! Perfect for a morning full of studying! These are great paired with the Prepare Me for Mug or our Small Steps Deep Breaths Mug! 

Speaking of Small Steps Deep Breaths Mug

This is the perfect mantra for a graduate feeling overwhelmed with all that the next chapter of life brings. Small Steps Deep Breaths would even look adorable just resting on a desk or shelf while it awaits its liquid inspiration! 

A Fave: Dreams Don’t Work Unless You Do Sticker

What an adorable little (useful) note to tuck into a card or a mug. Your graduate can stick this to their water bottle or laptop. A perfect and thoughtful little add-on to a cash gift. 

Another Good One: If You Have Time to Worry Sticker

If you have time to worry you have time to pray. Seriously, don’t we all find the time to worry about something?! If we have the time for that, we also have the time to pray. This colorful sticker can be a great reminder of that when added to notebooks, water bottles, laptop, or even pinned to a bulletin board. We really have a GOOD collection of stickers that would be perfect for grads. Check them out here to find one that fits your grad!

A Grad Must Have: Pour Over Coffee Kits

These Coffee Kits are SO easy and so fun to use. Check out the variety of flavors offered. Each kit comes with five coffees and five creamers! This makes a great gift knowing that your graduate could potentially be needing a little extra motivation here and there! 

Last But Not Least: Iowa Refrigerator Magnet

Is your grad heading out of state for the fall? Or maybe already this summer? Even if they are staying, this cute little magnet for their dorm fridge is a super sweet and thoughtful pop of color and a special reminder of home. 


While graduation is a very exciting time, it can also be scary for some. We hope our products can be a light in this new season of a young person’s life. We also hope this collection of goods helps get the wheels turning while you shop for the people on your list this year! Check out our site for more great grad gift ideas. We are sure you will find something your grad will love!
