Graduates of 2020 are allowed at least a little bit of fomo. Since the end to this season's school year isn't the typical graduation experience, all the more reason to make this year's at-home celebration unique. While your grad will still cross the finish line with four years of memories (and a diploma!) a luxury graduation gift for her big day may be worth considering.
Whether it be high school, college, or even a PhD, a graduation marks not only an accomplishment, but a new beginning. Something everlasting like a special piece of jewelry or a handbag can become keepsakes to carry into their future. But if you're looking for something a touch more functional, opt for something that they might not think to buy for themselves like a wireless charging station or a fancy air pod holder. Likewise with usage in mind, a sleek journal or daily planner that's actually cool can serve as motivation — Louis Vuitton's or Off-White's stationary goods would surely do the trick. And for those looking for a new job (or internship), help them to build up their professional wardrobe with some nice loafers or a designer blazer for interview attire.
