I remember this time of the student year … when the crippling stress of exams comes to an abrupt but very sweet end and everything fun you’ve been planning for the past couple of months finally seems within reach. I also remember being a graduate, and every single time, the end is bitter sweet – sad to be leaving the past few years behind but excited to find out what lies ahead.
Enter, the grad gift. I’ve found that most people opt for something classic and timeless so that the grad can use it and remember graduation/their accomplishment forever. I however, think that this occasion deserves that the gift go one step further SO I propose timeless with a twist of originality as strong punctuation at the end of a long and tough journey.
