Graduation season is just around the corner, and with its arrival comes the desire to acknowledge and celebrate the occasion with an appropriate and appreciated gift. Buying for young men, though, always leave me stumped, particularly if they are high school graduates. Until recently, that is, when the most obvious source for appropriate gifts finally dawned on me ~ the university bookstore.
Young men are ready to embrace campus life. After the long college application process, they have finally made their decisions and will certainly welcome anything from their chosen collegiate destination. Just be sure that it’s cool and doesn’t scream great gift chosen by a mom.
Look what I found at the online bookstores from some of our favorite colleges and universities.

Thank you JDB and CTH for vetting these items for me. I feel confident any of these would elicit a genuine thank you note from its recipient, or at least a heart-felt text.
