Gift Ideas for Every Grad on Your List

See how Jessica Kirkland of Pen + Paper Flowers used unique Tuesday Morning finds to put together great graduation gift ideas.

Graduation season is upon us and Tuesday Morning is the smart choice for all of your graduation gift needs. Whether you are helping to prep your grad for the next adventure of their life or just looking to celebrate with one, Tuesday Morning has you covered! The deeply-discounted prices on designer, name-brand, closeout merchandise makes shopping especially enjoyable. I love walking in and finding upscale items typically seen in well-loved catalogs, specialty and department stores at a fraction of the cost. Not only does Tuesday Morning have a fabulous selection of gift items but their fun gift wrap, darling tissue paper, pretty ribbons and gorgeous gift bags, boxes and baskets make wrapping it all up a cinch! To show you how easy it is, I’ve put together a few graduation gift ideas for creating a thoughtful gift basket for every Grad on your list this year!

High School Grad Gift Basket

graduation gift ideas

Whether dorm room or apartment living, this gift basket for High School Grads will set them up for success by providing them with some essentials for keeping their closet organized as well as giving them some fun extras for laundry duty. I selected a cute Laundry Bag, Hanging Closet Organizer, a set of Lingerie Laundry Bags, a set of clever hanging Owl Scarf Organizers and a couple of packs of Fragrance Sachets to help keep things smelling fresh. I chose an adorable basket to put it all in and tied it up with a simple piece of ribbon. What’s even better is the basket can then be used as an additional option for storage.



Nursing, PT, OT or medical professional Grad Gift Basket


This charming gift basket for the medical professional Grad will keep them on their toes. The line of products like Sugar Scrub, Foot Cream, Foot Butter, Cracked Heal Treatment, a pumice stone and foot brush is something they will really appreciate as they prepare to step into a career that will require a lot of time on their feet. I found a cute wire “bread basket” from Tuesday Morning to put everything together and lined it with a few sheets of white scalloped tissue paper and a simple pink ribbon to finish.



College Grad Gift Basket


Celebrate the college graduate in your life by giving them something really sophisticated to recognize their hard work. As they prepare to step into the career of their dreams, a couple of beautiful marble and wood cheese boards along with a lovely set of cheese knives and spreaders will help prepare them for years of entertaining in style. Tuesday Morning also had this charming crate to package it all up in and will serve as a cute storage idea for later. The fun scalloped designer tissue paper was just right for helping to conceal the gifts inside the crate.



There were so many other fun things I found that would make fun Grad gifts including a lot of electronics (headphones, bluetooth speakers, chargers, etc), small appliances (microwave popcorn poppers, espresso machines), bath accessories (towels, soap dispensers, rugs) kitchen essentials (pots and pans, mixers, prep tools), and home decor items, (rugs, pillows, comforters, art prints, small furniture). With close to 800 stores nationwide, find the nearest Tuesday Morning location to you and get ready to be inspired.
