5 Gift Ideas for Grads
on Any Career Path

 We’re in the midst of graduation season, so whether you’re turning the tassel or know someone who is, you’re probably thinking of what essentials are needed for that next life stage. Regardless of the career path, we have pretty and functional styles to help keep her organized and put-together for her new adventure. Graduation gifts are certainly not one-size-fits-all — you want to give her something thoughtful and unique to her personality and career path. Need help curating the perfect gift to fit her future? We’ve got your back. Here are our top gift ideas for three popular career fields.


gift idea: Iconic Vera Tote

Whether you’re a teacher, administrator or counselor, educators need a great bag to get them through their busy days. Our favorite gift idea is the Iconic Vera Tote since it’s the perfect teacher bag! With ample space and plenty of pockets, this tote will fit all lesson-planning materials, an agenda and a snack (plus extra aspirin for the brave kindergarten teachers out there). With a pretty pattern like Water Bouquet, they’ll feel stylish on the job.



gift idea: Breakaway Lanyard, Zip ID Case and Iconic Lunch Bunch

It truly takes a special person to dedicate their life to healing others. This field is known for its quick pace, filled with so many different medical professionals from nurses and doctors to dentists and physical therapists. Regardless of the health focus she chose, she needs items that can make her life just a little bit easier. A pretty lanyard (breakaway is a must in the medical field) and ID case are essential for her day-to-day while a stylish lunch bag filled with her favorite snacks will be her savior during 12 hour shifts (and easy to spot in the break room refrigerator)!



gift idea: Commuter Tote

We all know a #girlboss ready to conquer the corporate world. Her business savvy and positive attitude are going to get her far, so she needs a bag that can keep up! Our Commuter Tote is perfect for a businesswoman constantly on the go. Between her morning commute, off-site meetings at coffee shops and countless business trips, she needs to keep her belongings organized, so she never misses a beat. With a separate laptop compartment and top zip closure, she’ll know her essentials will stay safe no matter where her career takes her.

    Thank you for including medical professionals in this article! I would also add a tote bag for long shifts when you need to have essentials on hand and can’t leave hospital to go get something. I would also include a nice overnight bag for those times you go to work in the snow and are stranded, scheduled to work the next day!
