The Butterdome Butter Dish
A Professional Wardrobe
With graduation will likely come the end of sweat pants... or at least, the end of casual wear during the work day. Helping a new graduate purchase some professional attire can give them an extra boost when they start their post-graduation job search.
A U of A Hoodie
|A variety of hoodies (and even tiny scrubs for your future grads) can be found at the Bookstore.|
They may not get to wear it to work, but every university grad should have at least one school hoodie in their closet. Preferably a hoodie from their own school...
There might be a grad or two (or probably more) who haven't quite found their post-university career yet, and that's okay. Before settling into a work routine, try to get your grad out into the world for some exploring. They could go to an exotic place that they've been studying for the past 4+ years, or you could pack them off to visit family members that they've been unable to see a lot during their studies.
Completing a degree is a pretty big accomplishment, so a frame can be a great way to let your grad show off their achievement.
|U of A mugs available at the Bookstore.|
Sometimes it can be nice to just go with something simple and totally useful. If your grad has a slight tea and/or coffee addiction, then a mug will definitely be used.
Now that they finished their degree, your grad is going to have so much time to do all of the things that they used to put off... like reading! More specifically, reading for fun! We have a few ideas for what they might want to read (now that they have time) here.
|Grad Bear available at the Bookstore.|
Not a live one though... that could end poorly for everyone. A cute little teddy bear could be nice though.
Every little bit helps, so if you'd like to help your grad begin their post-graduation savings plan, then a small (or if you're lucky, large) donation would likely be appreciated. Even if you simply buy them a celebratory dinner, they should appreciate it.
Sometimes the most meaningful gift can simply be knowing that your loved ones are proud of you... so let your grad know :)
