Gift Ideas for adult's earning bachelor degrees

Two of my sisters are both graduating soon with their bachelor degrees. Money is really the only thing they need but I think it's impersonal. Any good gift ideas? I was thinking spiritual or motivational books (I love reading so I tend to give things I'd enjoy getting) but since they've been reading curriculum & studying so much they may not feel like reading now. They are both in their early 40s, single moms with teenage kids. Any ideas are welcome & thanks in advance.

  • Maybe somethin having to do with what they each are getting their degrees in? Like if one is a nurse, a nice stethoscope or BP cuff? Something they can take with them and use that they can say, "Oh, my sister gave that to me when I graduated!" Budget is also a factor- how much are you looking to spend?

  • A nice pen set, brief case, or as musicpisces said something related to their new degrees.

  • I would go for pure, total indulgence! A spa day, a mani-pedi, or maybe a massage. A way-to-go, you've earned it that they would never give themselves.
