Gifts for the New Graduate from XLR8

Posted by XLR8 TX on

It's graduation month! May is the month of numerous graduation ceremonies all across the United States, including here in Texas. If we look beneath the surface, we can see that graduation ceremonies are so much more than simply handing over a diploma. Smiles blend with tears as students are embarking on the next piece of their journey, leaving behind memories and places they've grown to call home. 

This May, honor the graduates in your life not just regarding their educational journey, but about this time in their lives when they are truly growing up. Whether they're graduating high school, college, or a graduate program, all of our graduates deserve something special to remember this time in their lives. Here are some of our favorite gift ideas from XLR8:

1. A graduation dress! Many people forget that graduating comes with a lot of fun festivities, both on and off campus. Pop on over to XLR8 and grab a cute dress for the new graduate in your life who wants some flair.
