Graduating from college is a time wrought with excitement and anxiety, but it is also one that calls for celebration. If your grad is lucky enough, too, they might be headed straight from campus to their first real job or final summer internship, desk and all. Not only is that good news for your friend or family member’s career, but it also makes shopping for a graduation gift all the easier. You can commemorate all of their hard work and show all of your hope for their future with a super thoughtful item for their desk or something that they can get to using right away.

Traditional graduation gifts can be anything from merch from an alma mater to jewelry, but when you focus your efforts to getting your graduating loved one something to enter their corporate girlie era, graduation gifting becomes a little more fun and practical. In addition to some of these items here, you can also think about getting them a subscription to a meal prep service so they can make their smoothies in the morning or have a quick, healthy dinner at night. There are also great memberships to wardrobe services to help them stay profresh or beauty and self-care services that make great graduation gifts for younger people headed into the corporate lifestyle. Or, you know, there’s always some luxe items like a beautiful leather planner or a cashmere sweater you can get them below.
