Graduation Gift Guide | Gifts that Give Back

When you purchase gifts for your grad from Designed For Joy, you provide living wage work for our community's most vulnerable women. 

Hannah, our Meredith College communications intern, has a gift guide for your high school and college graduates. 

Use code GRAD10 for 10% off and free shipping in May. Include a note at checkout and we'll handwrite a note to your graduate. 


Our gold necklace line offers several “wear everyday” necklaces that will compliment your grad's workweek wardrobe and casual weekend outfits.



Right out of school, your grad may not have the budget to treat herself to timeless accessories. Our hair on leather Tracy Clutch makes a great first impression on her sense of style as a working adult. From keeping her cash, cards, and phone she'll be ready to dominate her work look with this slim wristlet clutch.



Speaking of luxuries she’ll thank her lucky stars for but can’t afford yet, our large leather tote makes a really nice work bag and made to last years. Great for everyday use, our large tote can take the weight of all the things a working woman needs to tote around- laptop, water bottle, wallet, journal and so much more! 


Let's hope your grad is good at budgeting her new life. But even if she's not, she'll look smart and responsible with our new spring Snap Wallet. It’s thoughtful, useful for fitting her phone and cards, and durable, she’ll be using this wallet for many years.  (Available in three colors, but we recommend the Dusty Rose.)





Her first real job will probably require her to carry business cards. Our Coin Purse is the perfect size for cards. She can feel good about pulling out her Rose Gold Coin Purse at networking event.



Earrings are a great gift! Our Gold Medallion and Leather Earrings will radiate her positivity. She'll feel confident and look trendy in this mixed media look.


If you’re struggling to find the perfect gift for your grad, purchase a gift card from us. You’ll make an impact with Designed For Joy and allow your graduate to pick whatever she likes!
