The Best Gifts for Graduates and Teachers

School’s out for summer–or perhaps forever!–depending on the age of the graduate in your life. And as students have spent the last few months hitting the books hard, they now deserve to have their accomplishments acknowledged, as do the educators who have supported them. From mood-lifting fragrances and clean beauty products to help them put their best face forward, to luxurious self-care moments that will wash away the stress of high-stakes tests, we’ve rounded up some of the best gifts for the class of 2023.

Gifts For Graduates

Dalegerard Vocation Eau De Parfum

Graduation day may seem like the end of something, but it’s really just the beginning. Help your grad find their true self and set out on a path to a fulfilling future with this uncluttered, unisex, clean fragrance featuring top notes of  bergamot and jasmine, and a unique patchouli heart note, grounded in a strong, woody base.

Vintner's Daughter Active Botanical Serum

Give your grad the beauty world’s version of the classic Tiffany Heart Key Pendant (and a glowing complexion to boot). The cult, sell out, Active Botanical Serum is a moisturizer, serum, and face oil in one, formulated with 22 of the world’s most nutrient-rich botanicals that are infused over a three-week period to amplify performance and effectively address a broad range of skin concerns. 

Priori Skincare Unveiled LED Mask

According to a recent study, 75% of children ages 6 to 17 want to become YouTubers, vloggers, or bloggers. Think what you will, but with content related to LED masks generating over 123 million views on TikTok, this professional grade, FDA cleared LED Mask will give your aspiring influencer a foot in the door and get them camera ready after just one 10-minute session too. It’s a bit of a splurge, so we’re saving this one for our Honor Rolees!
