Gift guide: the graduate

My sister and Peter's sister are both graduating from college this month. So grown up!

When I left home and went to college, my sister was in eighth grade. Sometimes I still feel like she should be this little! Of course, this isn't a negative reflection of her in any way. She is brilliant and creative -- just an all around lovely lady and friend. I think that's just an unfortunate side effect of being the oldest - you always see your siblings as younger than they are.

This little round-up of grown-up graduation gifts ranges from the practical to the frivolous. That's really what being an adult is all about, right? Finding a way for your cast iron skillet and Kate Spade bracelets to peacefully co-exist.

1. Bodum Eileen French Press, $39.99
2. Well-being print, $20
3. Lodge logic 12 inch pre-seasoned skillet, $18.59
4. Earn your stripes idiom bracelet, $33
5. Feather in your cap idiom bracelet, $58
6. Let's do lunch, $28


  1. I like that picture...wink wink.

  2. Next year, I'm going to have to buy a ton of high school grad've given me some great ideas (not sure any are ready for the French Press or skillet, but who knows???).

  3. Lizzie, glad these helped! High school grads are tough -- they'd probably prefer a Starbucks gift card to the French Press!
