by Kimberly Foerst

Bohemian Bedding Bundle

Graduation Gift Idea #1: New Quilt Or Comforter Set
new quilt or comforter set is the gift that keeps giving. You’ll be the first person your favorite graduate thinks about when they wake up -- and the last one they’ll think about before nodding off to sleep -- with this thoughtful gift. After a long day of work or job hunting, they’ll thank you for a soft and cozy place to rest their heads.

Buffalo Woven Check Storage Box Gift Set

Graduation Gift Idea #2: Stunning and Smart Storage Boxes
There are lots of life changes after college graduation. Moving out of dorms or off-campus housing into a first apartment or back home means a lot of hauling. Why not do it in fashion with storage boxes that double as attractive display boxes in any home? fashionable storage solutions make great gifts for graduates, and this particular buffalo check storage box gift set even includes a matching pillow and cozy sherpa throw.

Wellow Ikat Furniture Protector

Graduation Gift Idea #3: Furniture Protectors
Graduating students who move into a new place after college are typically cost conscious and on a limited budget until they land their first well-paying job. And, while that thrift store sofa may be super affordable, it probably comes with some style warts (hello grandma’s hand-me-down). Slipcovers can be expensive and, let’s face it, never fit quite right. But it’s easy to transform POF (previously owned furniture) with furniture protectors that come in everyone’s favorite design styles. BONUS: they also provide the valuable function of protecting furniture from (probably late night) spills and pet hair that sheds in sheets from their roommate's 30-pound cat (or is that a dog?).

Hygge Stripe Cotton Slub Tassel Fringe Throw By Lush Decor

Graduation Gift Idea #4: Cozy Throw Blankets
Netflix and chill. Or maybe you prefer to think of your grad curled up on the sofa with the latest historical novel or Sunday’s NYT crossword puzzle. Whatever the case, your recent grad will love to get comfy under a cozy throw blanket. A soft Sherpa throw adds both warmth and textured style that your grad will appreciate for years to come.

Lush Decor Gift Card

Graduation Gift Idea #5: Gift Cards
If you are not sure exactly what the college graduate in your life would want for his or her home, this is a great option. We offer gift cards in denominations ranging from $25 to $500.
Of course, you can always put cash in a card for the graduate, but the gift of home decor is a beautiful and functional gift they will use often and remember forever.
