Graduations are coming. Chances are you have at least one person in your life who will be celebrating this milestone (whether they are graduating high school, college or even middle school).
If your upcoming grad happens to be a fashionista, here are some tips for picking out the perfect graduation present.
It may seem like a daunting task to shop for someone devoted to fashion. This can be especially true if she keeps up to date with all the latest trends while you are much happier in a favorite pair of jeans and a t-shirt. Still, with some creative thinking, you can shop confidently for the fashionista in your life.
One way to begin thinking about gifts for a fashionista is to go back to basics. This is really a simple idea, but it’s rooted in sound logic. Basically, even the trendiest person can benefit from a few basic staples in their closet. And chances are, they probably don’t have them.
When you are focused on today’s hottest fashions, you are not always looking toward your first big job interview or even just that basic piece to mix and match with all your other clothes. That’s where you can come in as a savvy gifter.
Buy your favorite graduate a smart trench coat that she will be able to wear for years to come. A classic blazer is another great option and can generally be matched with many different pieces: from the most basic to whatever is happening in that moment of fashion.
Depending on the field of study your graduate is entering or exiting (and how well you know her) you might consider purchasing a smart, classic suit that can be used for important internship and job interviews.
Accessories are another gifting opportunity for you. A watch tends to be a traditional graduation gift. There’s nothing wrong with that, if you think she’ll wear it. Consider adding some sort of personalization to make it extra special.
Picking a bold jewelry item such as a necklace, bracelet or ring can be a fitting graduation gift for a fashionista. If you are unsure about what kind of jewelry to select for her, consider a gift card from Giftbar so she can select her own special piece.
Don’t forget the importance of a good bag, whether it’s a handbag or briefcase (Again, depending on what type of graduation this is.). Your fashionista may feel more confident hauling all those school books around campus in a stylish bag. Or, if she’s hitting the job market for the first time a briefcase might be just the finishing touch she needs.
Now, for those of you whose graduating fashionista is so on the cutting edge of fashion that you wouldn’t have a clue what to buy (and simple, classic or basic just won’t do), give her the gift of choice. At Giftbar, you’re not just getting her a gift card. You’re giving your grad the chance to shop at a carefully curated and highly fashionable merchant that won’t disappoint.
If you’re buying a graduation present for the fashionista in your life, it doesn’t have to be complicated. Keep it simple by sticking to classic staples and accessories every woman needs OR give her the gift of choice with all the options available for women at Giftbar.
