Graduate your Grad Gifts

It’s time we move beyond the typical envelope of cash and teddy bear donning a graduation cap and gift our grads with something truly heartfelt and memorable. Gift the graduate in your life with something they’ll be able to enjoy for years to come, and they’ll think of you fondly and often.

Here at steve mckenzie’s we have a plethora of potential graduation gifts for you to share with you grad, each one just as special as the last… So, here goes, our list of top graduation gifts that will elevate your status in the eyes of the lucky recipient:

messenger bag

Any recent grad will be the ency of his college classmates, or office colleagues with this “Duke” waxed canvas messenger bag. It’s casual refinement at it’s best. And, it’s practical. Need we say more?

tote bag

Our “Biscotti” tote bag offers equal style and functionality and, as a bonus, is available in a fun assortment of our classic steve mckenzie’s textiles!

Both bag options are crafted here in the US and offer unparalleled durability, ensuring the grad who’s gifted this will be able to put it to good use for years.

b. 01 mischievous 1000px

While jewelry is a classic graduate gift option, the items we’re suggesting are anything but stale. This “Be mischievous and you will not be lonesome.” bracelet offers a bit of advice that can only come from a favorite relative or family friend of the graduate, and will surely give them something to think about over the next few years as they begin their working or college career.


This handcrafted initial necklace is hand-dipped in 18k gold for a lovely vermeil finish. Designed after the classic magnetic blocks we all played with as children, this piece offers a bit of nostalgia.

If the graduate in your life is of age, this cocktail kit may be just the ticket! Including the iconic Mason Shaker, a cocktail jigger, muddler, and two cocktail coupes and napkins, all artfully pulled together in a beautiful canvas and leather bag, this kit has the makings of many memorable events.

julep cup

Another gift idea for the of-age graduate, there is nothing more southern than a julep cup. And this pewter version from steve mckenzie’s can be custom engraved for your grad!

moleskine notebook cover

Moleskine leather notebook covers will add an ideal touch of stylish sophistication to your graduate’s upcoming work or studies. Good marks are practically ensured when notebooks are covered with these.
