Brilliant Gifts for the Graduating Class of '15

It's been a long time since most of us graduated from high school or college, so picking out the perfect graduation gift isn't always the easiest task. We know this can be a tough and intimidating process, so we gathered up some of our most commonly asked questions regarding grad gifts! If you have a different question that we can assist you with, don't hesitate to reach out to us at  pizazz@swoozies.com. We're always happy to help you find that special gift for a loved one!

Q: My daughter has a group of very special friends. She has known them since she was in grade school, and I feel like they are my daughters. What are some special gifts that she can give?

A: Personalized gifts are always very thoughtful because it shows you thought of each person and took the time to make it personal. Three major categories come into play as great gifting.

First, consider gifting items they might use in the dorm.

1. You can never go wrong with a personalized cosmetic case. Every girl needs one, and they'll love it even more if it's personalized.

2. Classy phone chargers make great gifts, as well. Our mobile chargers are not only cute, but also compact and convenient!

Second, we love gifting girls items they'll be able to use for summer travel plans.

3. A toiletry roll like this neon one from BLVD is a fun and practical gift! 

4. A pink glitter tumbler is something a girl will definitely tote back and forth to class in college. You can even personalize this one for a special touch!

Lastly, we are big fans of gifts used for going back and forth between home and school on those short weekends.

5. Laundry bags are a great option! They're totally necessary in college, but they don't have to be dull and boring. We sell laundry bags in plenty of fun colors and even offer personalization.

6. An all-occasion tote bag always makes for a great gifts for girls. The gold and white chevron tote we picked out is stylish enough to take out for an evening and tough enough to take the beach!
