When asked to write this post, providing gift ideas for high school grads, I obviously reminisced and traveled back to my own high school graduation many years ago. Truth be told, I got envelope after envelope after envelope of money. Checks from Aunt Donna, cash from Uncle Joe, and a stock certificate from Uncle Mark. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining…money is always nice. But I realized, most people gave me money because they just didn’t know what else to get me. Apparently finding a useful, yet unique present for high school graduates can be tricky. Here are a few items from our team at Pinkfluence that you can add to your own graduation wishlist. Share with family and friends before the big day and give them a few hints as to what you might want.
