It’s amazing how fast time flies. One minute they’re entering junior kindergarten and 10 years later, graduating from Grade 8. Graduation is all the talk at this time of year – the grad trip, grad dress, grad parties, but have you thought about a grad gift? If not, no worries, as Tweenhood has 8 awesome ideas that will deem you “cool” in their eyes.
Alex and Ani Bracelet
We love Alex and Ani bracelets, they are so cute and fun to wear. The 2015 Graduation Cap Charm Bangle makes a terrific and affordable gift for your new graduate. At this price, buy a few, as girls will love stacking them. $28 USD
Fossil Leather Bracelet
Even the guys love to accessorize as leather bracelets are all the rage. From $38 CAN
Me to We Trip
The ultimate trip for a great cause. Students learn that they can make an impact by volunteering their time to help eliminate obstacles to poverty and education in third world countries.
Pandora may be well known for their charms, but their rings have become very popular. With prices starting at $30 CAN and many styles to choose from, Pandora rings will be a guaranteed hit.
As they enter high school, kids will become more independent and a smartphone will enable them to stay in touch with you. As many high schools are adopting BYOD (bring your own device), a tablet or laptop will be help busy on-the-go students with homework, projects and essays.
Tiffany Heart Earrings
Tiffany’s is a brand that equates with class, quality and beauty. If you have a higher budget, the Return to Tiffany Mini Heart Tag Earrings is a timeless piece that your graduate will cherish forever. $190 CAN
Scrapbook of Elementary School Years
My girlfriend has been working on this for some time now. She’s got all of her daughter’s special school moments like track & field, band concerts, school trips, class pictures, etc. that she’ll present to her daughter in a memory filled scrapbook that she’s created just for her. PRICELESS.
Season’s Pass to Local Amusement Park
A season’s pass is economically the best deal in town. In the GTA, Canada’s Wonderland is a hot ticket and with a price tag of $69.99 (as of writing), they’ll have fun all summer long.
About Wendy Morelli
Wendy loves her 2 kids and her iPhone, not necessarily always in that order. She is an app obsessed mom who loves everything tech and is (unfortunately) old enough to remember the brick Motorola cell phone and the Commodore computer. Her love for technology stems back to the 10+ years of working for technology based companies. Wendy's alter ego, "AppHipMom" has been featured in Canadian Family, iVillage, Women in Biz, EverythingMom, BlogHer and Savvy Mom.
