  1. My daughter loves her subscription to Fab, Fit, Fun. It is a quarterly subscription box that contains full size beauty products and other goodies. The spring box is amazing and would be a special present for any graduate. Sending a subscription for the whole year would bless the graduate every quarter. Getting mail and care packages in college is exciting. Use code WELCOME10 for $10 off your spring box at FabFitFun.

2. Nice toiletries are expensive. Having something that smells and feels good in the dorm shower will help her feel more at home. Including body wash, shampoo, or lotions is a great addition to a gift basket. Hot brands are Philosophy, Fresh, and Origins.

3. The coolest item of 2019 is Apple Air Pods. No girl should go to college without a set!!!

4.  These pin boards from Minted are the cutest I have ever seen. You choose the fabric and size. There is one for every taste and space.

5.  It's no secret that dorm rooms are small, but a girl's jewelry collection may not be. The Container Store has lots of amazing and space saving ideas like this jewelry organizer.

6.  Add a great piece of jewelry to go in her jewelry organizer. Kendra Scott earrings, necklaces, and bracelets are hot. Extra points for choosing something in her new school colors.

7.  This adorable shower caddy from The Container Store take her to the shower in style. Fill it with her favorite shampoo and body wash. available in several colors, will help brighten her desk.

8.  Canisters filled with her favorite treats will be a sustaining treat.

9.  Every college girl has to have at least one dry erase board for reminders and messages to her roommate and friends.

10. Lounge pants are the dorm attire of choice – the cuter and more comfortable the better.

 

 

It is easy to give cash, but something more personable will be celebrated by the graduate and the graduate's parents. The graduate will have a useful gift and the parents won't be left wondering what happened to all that cash when it is time to shop for her dorm room. What are your ideas for graduation gifts?

  1. Find out his favorite treat and fill a canister with it. Tie a pretty bow and you have a great present that he will use again and agian in his dorm room. 
  2. A backpack laundry bag like the Stramperbag. The Stramperbag stands up on its own and has several compartments for detergent or to keep clothes separate
  3. A desk lamp, especially this super cool, slim one from Poppin will light up their study space
  4. Headphones are a peacekeeper in the dorm. Want to be alone with your own music? Headphones. Want to drown out dorm noise? Headphones. Want to be polite and not annoy others with your taste in music, video games, movies, or tv? Headphones.
  5. One way or another, he is going to need to shower and shave (well, hopefully). Toiletry sets will definitely make their way into his college packing. Hot brands are Jack Black, and Kiehl's.
  6. Nice pajama pants are great for walking around the dorm in comfort. It's also good to have something to sleep in beside boxers when traveling. Joggers are especially popular right now.
  7. A basic tool kit comes in handy in the dorm and in their first apartment. Make or buy one that includes a level, measuring tape, box cutter, and a set of screw drivers.
  8. College students are always on the move. They travel home, to friends' homes, and on trips with school organizations. They even take semesters abroad. A sturdy toiletry kit is a must to save their clothes from leaky liquids. The kit also keeps everything in one place when grooming.
  9. A nice leather wallet gives them a place to store their student ID, which they will be constantly flashing all over campus.

 

Guys love cash, but something more personable will be celebrated by the graduate and the graduate's parents. The graduate will have a useful gift and the parents won't be left wondering what happened to all that cash when it is time to shop for their dorm room. What are your ideas for graduation gifts for guys?

Gifts For Empty Nesters

 

Gifts for Empty Nesters are not hard to find if you know what to look for. Whether single or married, an empty nester is going through a big change as the children leave home. Some are excited about the new possibilities and others are downright depressed. Gifts that take into account their new household size and new routines will always be appreciated.

Cooking for Two Cookbook

One of the things that is hardest for a new empty nesting couple to adjust to is cooking for a smaller household. The Complete Cooking for Two Cookbook has over 650 recipes and tips for shopping and storing leftovers and ingredients. You can read my complete review of this cookbook at The Best Cooking for Two Cookbook.

Luggage Tags

I love these luggage tags! The new empty nester is definitley on a new adventure. Even if they cannot travel the world because they are busy working to pay for college, they can use them when they go to Parent's Weekend at the college.

Bittersweet

  I just finished this amazing book – Bittersweet by Shauna Niequist. The subtitle is “Thoughts on change, grace, and learning the hard way.” Going from full nest to empty nest is a huge change and this book is perfect for helping process that change. I underlined about half of this book. It is so beautifully written and relatable.

Other book ideas: Back Roads to Belonging by Kristen Strong, Doing Life with Your Adult Children by Jim Burns, and The Next Right Thing by Emily P.Freeman. 

Kindle Reader

One of the things I have enjoyed most since my youngest began driving and thus freed up hours of my week is reading. I keep a book going in my Kindle app and a book going through Audible in the car. A new reader or Audible membership would be an awesome gift for an empty nester.

Bottle of Wine

A bottle of wine always shows you care and can help the new empty nester celebrate their new stage.

Gourmet Food Basket

What would could better to go with their wine than a gourmet food basket. This one even ships Amazon Prime.

Throw Blanket

After having teenagers in the house for however many years, pretty much everything in their house is worn out – from towels to throw blankets. A new throw blanket like the ones from Barefoot Dreams (the absolute softest ones ever) will definitely be appreciated.

Gift Cards

Reintroduce the new empty nesters to going somewhere besides their child's ball games. Raise has discounted gift cards for everything you can think of – movies, restaurants, and stores. If they are planning a home improvement project, then get a Lowe's or Home Depot card. New hobbies? How about Michael's or Hobby Lobby. The possibilities are endless.

 

 

 

 

Finding gifts for empty nesters is not that hard. They are beginning a new stage in life and there are a million possibilites for their new normal. Treat them to a night out or to anything that will help them adjust.
