Your girl is finishing up her senior year just in time for graduation (insert crying face emoji—everything is fine, we’re fine). Despite the tears, it’s time to recognise your graduate’s accomplishments in a big way this year. One way to do this is to ensure that she is adequately ready for her next adventure. We’ve put together a carefully curated list of graduation presents for her that she is sure to love (and need, of course! ), whether she is moving into a dorm or an apartment.
All high school graduates will want and need some items (such as school supplies and teen girls’ favourite gadgets), but this roundup is exclusively for females. (Click on these links for more information on graduation gifts for him and great graduation gift ideas in general.)

It seems that towels are the standard graduation gift. With this stylish towel wrap from cult favourite Weezie, you can up your gift-giving game (and the recipient’s shower style).
