It's that time of year for high school and college graduations. Graduations are symbolic of ending one chapter and beginning another. Usually it means you are supposed to be a little more mature and ready for the adult world. (We know that's not always true ha). I gathered some gift ideas for ladies that will hopefully be a little more meaningful for starting their next journey. There's also items that ladies might need for their first big girl job too.

Oh, The Places You'll Go!
To me nothing makes more of a professional statement than a nice watch. I've been drooling over this watch ever since I tried it on a couple months ago. What I like about jewelry for gifts on important dates is that it reminds you of the person whenever you wear it and jewelry you usually hang on to for awhile.
If your not sure what to get, try a monthly service like BirchBox. Not a makeup lover? Everyone loves Netflix or Hulu. These are gifts that keep giving. This will be much appreciated when the responsibilities of her new found freedom lowers her bank account.
A classic sentimental gift would be the Dr. Seuss book, "Oh, the Places You'll Go!" This may be very popular and over done but it is still a really cute idea.
For my wine loving ladies, they will love this set of monogrammed wine glasses. She will feel so adult when her wine glasses all match. There's also a cute pineapple wine stopper to complete the set.
Since your grad will no longer need to wear a backpack, ever, she'll need a professional looking tote bag that can still fit everything in it. A black or white leather bag will match a lot and pull together an outfit while still carrying around what she need for the day.
