Head of the Class: Graduation Gift Guide 2017

Spring is here and that can mean only one thing; graduation season. Every year the task of gift-giving seems harder and harder. Here are a few suggestions that will give you a leg up on shopping for your new grad.


The transition from student to adult life can be challenging. For some, they might be having their first job interviews-talk about stressful. While we can’t go to the office with them we can help make sure they look professional. One way to look the part is with a leather padfolio. Younger people might not appreciate why taking notes on a professional pad, as opposed to a tablet or phone, is important but the interviewer might. In today’s competitive job market, impressions are crucial and little things make all the difference.



The trend for commuting professionals these days is a business backpack. They offer the convenience and comfort of a traditional backpack, but combine the organization and function usually found in a traditional briefcase. Your new grad might insist that their old school backpack is fine, but a new job and an old backpack don’t mix well.



Walk around any large city these days and one of the first things you notice is how many people are walking or biking to work. Another thing you might notice is almost all of them are carrying one item with them, a flap-over messenger bag. The reason they are so popular is because they offer more security than styles with outside pockets.  This gift will give your grad a fun and functional accessory while still looking professional.




A great way to personalize your gift is to add customized monogramming to your leather item. Monogramming can be applied to almost any leather good, even toiletry kits. This is a great way to make sure your gift is truly one of a kind. At Irv’s Luggage we offer many options and styles for monogramming that will fit your gift just right.


College is hard work and starting a new life is challenging. A thoughtful gift is a great way to show your new graduate that you are proud of them and all the hard work they put in.
