    Special gift for niece going away to college

    Hi All,

    My niece is graduating high school this year. :( She's going to a college a couple of hours away. I'm making her a "survival" kit of sorts with goofy basics like Ramen noodles and more practical things like highlighters and chocolate. :p I wanted to get her a little gift letting her know I'm always here for her no matter where she's at or what she's doing. I was thinking maybe this Willow Tree figurine??? She's not leaving until August, so I've got plenty of time. I was just wanting to get a game plan together. Anyone have an idea for a more personalized gift?

    Thanks!

    Beth

    That is lovely, but if she's going to live in a tiny dorm, she may not have space or shelving to put up that kind of decor. How about a piece of engraved jewelry, like a bracelet with a charm? Jewelry can be kept for a lifetime. You could probably find something lovely, handmade, and affordable on Etsy.

    I like the Etsy jewelry idea. My niece is graduating from college this May and moving to Florida. We bought her a Pandora bracelet with a couple of charms so when she wears it, she'll be closer to family.
    I suppose she'd appreciate cash more but...

    My aunt got me a Pandora bracelet for my college graduation. I love it! Now every birthday and Christmas, she gets me another charm for it. It's great!

    Pandora has some cute leather bracelets that I think look younger. They are great with just a few charms.
