Patch Picks: Gifts for Grads
What to buy class of 2011 graduates
- If you couldn't be there for the big day to watch the graduate walk across the stage, you can still send flowers to say congrats! Try ordering from Island Flowers and Gifts, named one of the top flower shops in Atlanta.
- Give a Visa gift card. High school grads heading off to college will be learning about budgeting funds. College grads will be learning about the cost of living on their own. They'll be thankful for the card that acts as cash. You can pick up gift cards at local grocery stores such as Kroger and Publix.
- No graduation gift is complete without a copy of Oh, the Places You Will Go, by Dr. Seuss. Stop by the Borders on Ponce to pick up a copy before heading off to that graduation celebration.
- Looking for the perfect gift for a lady graduate? Consider buying her a Pandora Bracelet. You can customize it yourself from the comfort of your home, or head out to a local store and ask for some advice (the closest one to the neighborhood is at Lenox Mall).
When in doubt, a thoughtful card and some cash will always do the trick.
