10 Gifts For The College Senior Graduating In A Global Pandemic For $30 Or Less

While I couldn't graduate with the rest of my original class at Oklahoma State, I can only imagine how they must be feeling. The graduation ceremony, itself, was up in the air for a while until the University released a statement that the graduating class of 2020 will thankfully be recognized at a later date. Still, because they were robbed of a genuine, on-time, ceremony, the least we could do is gather some fun, thoughtful, and useful gifts to support them and celebrate their biggest milestone.

Here are 10 Amazon gifts for those graduating during a global pandemic!

To commemorate the occasion and situation, this shirt can be the staple of achievement that brings you some laughs!

To embrace the fun side of graduation in a celebratory way, this wine glass tumbler can be your classy, yet sassy, way of saying "I made it!"

'Adulting: How to Become a Grown-up in 535 Easy(ish) Steps' book

Now that you or your graduate has completed their college education, they have to step out into the real world whether they like it or not. It's a guarantee that there will be bumps in the road, or they might need to know a few life hacks, and this book is a great investment that can get them a step in the right direction!

At-home Spa Gift Basket

After 4, 5, or however many years it took to finally graduate college, you or your graduate need something to destress. If you can afford physically going to a spa, you can get them this gift basket (or any of the similar ones) and they can have an at-home spa day to finally get some much-needed relaxation time!

Some people might've already had these in college but if they didn't, they make great gifts for everyone - especially if you don't know how to cook! To quote my mom, "if you just slap some stuff together and put it on a low setting, it can cook throughout the day and be ready by dinner!"

'Clean Eating Bowls' Recipe Book

After so many years of having the poor college diet that consisted of mostly fast-food and caffeine, a recipe book full of healthy meal ideas is an AMAZING gift!

6-piece Bath Towel Set

Over the years, you might've accumulated your parents' bathroom linens, but it's time to give those back and replace them with your own. Amazon has some pretty nice deals with the set above, and others like it, or a quick trip to the store can get this taken care of!

Wax burners

It's time to have your place smelling nice, so get yourself a wax burner like this one, buy your favorite wax of choice, and it'll be great! I have a few of these of my own and because they're simplistic looking, they're great accessories for home decor!

Adult Card Games!

Now that you or your graduate is 100% finished, having some fun afterwards is a must. Why not reminisce on some of the memories of your college days and determine what was the cause of them with this card game?

Anything personal to the graduate.

While the gift possibilities above can be great, you always want to include something that means a lot to them. This is where you can really put your relationship with your graduate to the test and show that you are genuinely proud and supportive of them and what they've achieved. Make it thoughtful, meaningful, and fulfilling for them; they deserve it!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
