  • Gift card to target or Victorias secret. When I graduated I didn't need anything except money. With Victorias secret gift card she would have to spend the money on something nice for herself.

  • What about a nice gift basket with a personalized coffee mug some diferent kinds of coffees or teas and lots of different types of breakfast on the go foods, I mean now that she's graduated college she'll be trying to find a job in that field and may not always have time to stop and fix something so a little grab n go might be just what she needs!!!

  • American Express Gift Card. She can then buy whatever she wants. Another thing my aunt always liked was Barnes & Noble gift cards.

  • I think books are always a nice gift. So, if you know a subject of interest for her or if she would enjoy a novel, she's going to have more time to read for relaxation now. So I think that would be an appropriate gift.

  • She just got her Bachelor's in Accounting. I think she attained the job she has now with the understanding that she'd get promoted officially to "accountant" once she got her degree. I like the gift basket idea... but I know she'd be fine just going out to dinner. But I feel we do that for everything and I just wanted this to be a little more special.
