Every time I hear of someone graduating school, I think how exciting it is they have their whole life ahead of them.
I’m also reminded of Dr. Seuss’s book “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!” Such as classic and accurate description of this journey we call life.
I have a family member, Sidney, who is graduating from high school. With her graduation gift, I wanted to encourage her to take the opportunity to travel and collect experiences while she is in college.
The college years are well suited for traveling since the school year has built in Spring Break, Summer Break, Fall Break and Christmas Break. Once you’re in the workforce, you only have one or two day holidays and limited vacation days to fit in all your travel plans. Boo.
When I think back to my college years, the highlights include spring break trips to Florida and South Padre and summer trips to China and Costa Rica. I’m so glad I experienced them all!
Personalized Luggage Tag & Luggage Handle Cover
For her graduation gift, I gave Sidney a personalized luggage tag and luggage handle cover for her future travels.
I found this great French Etsy.com shop called Zweby that makes beautiful genuine leather travel accessories.
I ordered Sidney a luggage handle cover with the word “YOLO” debossed. YOLO stands for You Only Live Once. For the luggage tag, I selected the phrase “Adventure Awaits!”
I used phrases, but you could also use someone’s name or initials to personalize a luggage tag and handle cover.
Both of these gift items are perfect for someone who is going places!
