Up first, stationery is always one of my go-to graduation gifts! It’s personal and practical — the best of both worlds. Joy Creative Shop has fabulous options for girls and boys and their modern and colorful styles are always a hit with teens. Their notepad (and gift tag!) bundle is an amazing deal if you need to order gifts for six or more grads. And, you can get get 15% off sitewide with the code DSG15!
Audrey Durden is one of our go-to brands for personalized gifts for every occasion, and for good reason. Everything can be personalized with the recipient’s monogram, making their items deeply personal and special — at incredible price points, no less! Their monogrammed trays and pillowcases are both under $20 and if you want to spend a little more, the monogrammed acrylic lapboard is a great gift under $50.
