Gift Ideas for Grads!

Happy Monday, friends, and welcome back to a new week! I hope you had a wonderful weekend, and felt loved and celebrated. We’re announcing all the scoop on our GLxHSP Summer Collection this week, so get excited! I’ll also share a bunch more sneak peeks of it, and all the behind-the-scenes fun we had last week.

Our mailbox is flooded with graduation announcements, so I know the break is near!! Grad gift ideas have been the top request in my inbox, so I consulted my two teens, and together we came up with the best gift ideas for both guys and girls. They both agreed they’d love to have any of these arrive at their doorstep, so I hope they’re helpful in helping you simplify the season.

Also… how was this three years ago?!
