10 Gifts For The College Senior Graduating During A Global Pandemic

Do you know a college senior who has graduated during the COVID-19 pandemic? I graduated high school this year and I can imagine how upsetting it must feel for college seniors who have accomplished so much but weren't able to celebrate the way they wanted to. Senior year hasn't been the way anyone has expected but it is important to celebrate the accomplishments that many graduating seniors have achieved this year. One of the ways we can celebrate college seniors is by giving them a gift. Here is a list of some ideas for a gift that you might want to give a college senior:

1. Card

Giving a card to a college senior might make them really happy! You can add a personal touch to the card by writing about how much you are proud of their accomplishments and wish them luck for their future. In addition, if you know the person really well you can talk about all of the good times you had with that person and how happy you feel for them. Also if you are feeling a little extra creative you might want to handwrite the card and create the card yourself!

2. Jewelry

Many people like to wear jewelry and if that person is the college senior you have been trying to buy a gift for then buying jewelry can make them happy. You can buy earrings, bracelets, or maybe a necklace for them.

3. Food

Food can be a great gift for many people and you might want to surprise a college senior with their favorite food. An even better idea would be if you made the food by yourself and surprised them with it! If you don't know what your college senior's favorite food is then you can bake them a cake or maybe invite them for dinner or lunch and cook a simple nice meal for them, but remember don't invite a lot of people!

4. Slideshow/Video

If you know a college senior really well and have pictures of them you can create a nice slideshow or video of them. In the video you could include captions where you can write anything you want to tell the college senior. Especially now that everything is reliant on technology a video would surprise the college senior. You can add music to the slideshow and put a personal touch to the video!

5. Flowers/Bouquet

6. iPhone Case

A possible gift you might want to get a college senior is an iPhone case. According to https://www.shutterfly.com/ideas/grad-gifts/ an interesting gift to give a graduating senior is a "customized iPhone case" where you can add your own personal designs on the case.

7. Pens

Another gift you might want to consider are pens. You can buy a college senior nice pens that they can use in the future. Some students are fascinated by fancy pens and that might be the gift you are looking for.

8. Diary/Journal

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

You cannot beat the beach. Believe it or not (which many people may not), New England has a long and beautiful coastline. Most of my high school summers were spent sitting on the Wall at Hampton Beach, getting sunburnt and eating Acai bowls from The Secret Spot. The Wall was the place to be both during the day and at night. We begin our days there with a KB's bagel and coffee, and end them with pizza and ice cream. It’s not a New England summer without that 4 p.m. text from someone, “Who wants to meet at the Wall tonight?” Nighttime is for Tripoli’s Pizza, the sound of waves, and wishes on shooting stars. Wednesday nights are especially important, as those are the nights that Hampton Beach sets off the weekly firework display.
