Let’s hear it for the Class of 2020! Not only have they overcome the typical hurdles of homework and final exams, they’ve persevered through a challenging semester that was disrupted by coronavirus. While they won’t be able to walk to “Pomp and Circumstance” to receive their diplomas this May, we can still recognize this incredible achievement that was years in the making.
Check out the local stores offering online shopping so you can find the perfect gift to congratulate the special seniors in your life.
Local book sellers offer a wide array of genres, as well as activities like jigsaw puzzles and cookbooks to help pass the time. Flyleaf Books and Epilogue are both offering ordering online, while Purple Crow Books will deliver your purchase to your porch within its delivery area.
Jewelry makes a fabulous keepsake to commemorate this academic achievement. Light Years Jewelry, William Travis Jewelry and Evans Jewelers are still selling online. Consider getting items like bracelets or watches engraved with the year or a message to make it extra special and personalized.
As grads enter the next chapter of their lives, their wardrobe may be in need of an update. While retail stores are closed, local boutiques Whilden and Monkee’s are offering discounts on gift cards that can be used once they reopen. At both stores, for every $100 purchased in gift cards, you’ll receive an additional $25; $200 gets $50; $300 get $75; and every $400 receives $100. Not only is this a great value—gift cards are an excellent way to support any small business during this time.
If your grad is off to college, a membership to Amazon Prime could be helpful for getting their hands on groceries, school supplies or items to outfit their dorm—their new home away from home.
Congrats to all the seniors!
