I have an older sister, and after watching her graduation ceremony last year and experiencing all the events that go along with it I was really looking forward to mine. I had already planned out what dress I would wear and I told myself that I would practice walking in heels every day so I didn’t mess up my walk across the stage (because I’m really bad at walking in heels!) But then, the pandemic happened and our school got cancelled for the rest of the year.


It’s that time of year again where high school and college graduations are happening! My graduation is this week and I’m beyond excited. It’s also the time of year where a lot of expat families pack up and move onto their next location, although that may have changed a little with the current pandemic. I’ve always been the sentimental type to give a friend a proper send-off before they move, and I think a big part of that is the gift! It can be hard to think of something unique, easy-to-pack-up, and memorable to give a friend or family member before they move away or go to college. That’s why I’ve chosen 6 gifts that I think are perfect! Some of them don’t even cost anything to make.
