Graduation time is here. And whether your graduates are wrapping up high school or college, they are completing one of life’s milestones and embarking on new adventures. We’ve picked 10 gifts perfect for sending them off in style!

Monogrammed Towel

We love the versatility of these towels at Gramercy. They have the look of the Turkish towels that have become so popular, but they are made of terry cloth — so they are absorbent and work as regular towels. Gramercy can easily add a monogram to personalize the gift. $78 at Gramercy.
