12 Graduation Gifts She Deserves

We all know that the 2020 graduation year was not like those of the recent past.

Whether it was a high school or college graduation, there was a feeling of loss and disappointment. The large accomplishments that each grad worked so hard for were not celebrated traditionally. But there is still an opportunity to celebrate, to share with the graduate in your life how proud you are of their accomplishment. In fact, it’s more important than ever. 

So, whether the graduate in your life is decorating a new apartment, moving to a new city, changing lifestyle habits or hunkering down in their childhood bedroom for now, GlobeIn can help you celebrate them.

2. A Monthly subscription that feels like traveling

Help them travel without leaving home

This is a tough time for the graduates of 2020. Maybe there were plans to travel… explore… learn. It won’t happen right away. But that doesn’t mean you can’t help inspire them just the same. Each month GlobeIn sends hand-crafted items from around the world straight to your door. Every box tells a story about empowering women all over the globe. Choose a three, six or 12-month subscription, and your grad can choose products to fill out their home, while being inspired every month.
