With graduation season right around the corner, StyleBlueprint has started to think of useful gifts for all of the upcoming graduates. Stationery is always a classic gift that will definitely come in handy. Especially for the older grads, although it is never too early for the younger set to learn how to write a thank you note. And, by starting to think about graduation gifts now, not only will there be plenty of time to get a personalized set of stationery, but you get to check “buy graduation gifts” off your to-do list!
Elementary School Graduation
A small, fold over card with fun lettering and colors is the perfect way to set young ones on the right path of handwritten thank you notes. All of these cards are available in multiple colors for both girls and boys.
Middle and High School Graduations
While girls still love the fun colors and patterns of pretty stationery at this age, it is definitely time to move on to a basic, no frills card for boys. Fold over sized and flat front cards are both appropriate at this age.
College and Graduate School Graduations
Starting in college, it is a good idea to have both a personal set and a professional set of stationery. Both are great choices for recent grads as they will have plenty of reasons for writing notes over the coming years!
If you want to add a little something more to the gift, a nice pen is always a great touch. My favorite shop in town for pens is Sam Flax. They have the best selection of colors and styles. My favorite pen for notes is the classic Le Pen!
