2023 Seniors Shopping Spree!
Stumped on what to get your new graduate for their big milestone? Or are you a graduate wanting to commemorate your time in high school or college? In the town of Fountain Hills, our Falcons supporters have numerous jewelry pieces and other gifts that are perfect for any individual! Stones like blue topaz, sapphire, and diamonds can feature the class colors and school pride throughout a lifetime. Our resident 2023 graduate wrote this blog, so it’s the real deal!
To kickstart your graduation shopping spree, pendants are totally in! They are the perfect piece of jewelry to wear daily, and are wonderful for any occasion! We have a wide selection of stones and prices to fit your needs and wants in a personalized gift. These gems can be accentuated with diamonds or even other stones! Along with accents comes the type of gold you choose, we have silver, yellow, rose, and white gold for your convenience! The options are limitless with our stunning pendants.
Second, on the jewelry gift list is rings! Rings have been in fashion for thousands of years, why stop now? While class rings in a traditional style aren’t going anywhere, we believe that choosing something unique to each person can make the gift even more memorable. The same stones as the pendants are featured, just with a little bit of a unique flare. Sapphires are accompanied by shimmering gold and diamonds that glimmer on any finger, especially a newly graduated one! Sapphire is said to be the stone of wisdom, the kind of life-long wisdom that helps you dance through life. It is also a very prominent gem associated with royalty, which makes you feel like a queen whenever you wear it! Silver and white gold bring out the pride of graduation in our beautiful and elegant rings.
The most often bought graduation gift on the jewelry spectrum is, not surprisingly, earrings! From hoops to dangles to studs, these are fantastic options for your gift of choice. A wide variety of gold and stone types can and are featured on our unique sets. Huggie hoops are the ideal choice for everyday jewelry. Many are accompanied by someone's stone of choice, but most have diamonds that gleam in the light. A lot of our huggies are in pure 14k yellow gold, which is the go-to in the jewelry community! As stated earlier, dangles are also a wonderful option for young adults. More parties are attended and more meetings (at work!) are called for, so making more elegant earrings a MUST-HAVE. These specific earrings feature white gold with blue topaz to represent the graduating class, but can just be a pretty statement piece for those who love the look. Finally, studs are an ideal jewelry piece for everyone. They are elegant, simple, and incredibly easy to wear. Any stone can be brought to life on an ear when put on a post! Sapphires and blue topaz alike are wonderful options for our class of 2023.
If jewelry is not your graduate’s style, we have so many more options from small businesses like us! Dorms and apartments always need a little bit of personalization from the person occupying them. If your top option is wall decorations for the new living space, then @Ouiiatelier on Etsy is the place to go. The Sweden shop features super adorable wall art pieces that are handmade! This shop owner was voted top artist of 2022 for their super cute designs. Something more useful is often wanted in such small spaces, such as custom shelves. Pick your color, pick whatever design you want and @Wellandloves on Etsy has got you covered. These shop owners are professional shelf makers that are from Orlando, Florida. They offer custom orders and basic orders of your choice, super cute and fresh! For the desks of students and professionals, journals, planners and calendars are a necessity to keep sanity. @Favoritestory (Etsy) has the simplest yet sweetest designs with a wide variety of options. This is a California company that handmakes custom orders, general orders are so much more! Graduates will appreciate the commitment to helped not only small businesses but their own pathway to success and comfort.
If you are in Arizona, like us, you might want something that’s a little more local than 3,000 miles. Baked goods are the perfect temporary yet memorable option for gifts. You might not want to go to the grocery store to go get a six-pack of cupcakes or cookies, so here are a couple of local Arizona shops that make delicious pastries. On Main Street in Scottsdale is a mother-daughter-owned shop that specializes in everything baked, Ruze Cake House! From cakes to cupcakes to cookies to macaroons, this team is wonderful to consider for your graduate's gift. This second shop also specializes in all baking ideas. Essence Bakery is on Indian School Road and is professionally trained to bring the taste of Europe to our taste buds. They pride themselves on their homemade desserts, and rightfully so! Lastly, on 72nd Street since 2005, Urban Cookies Bakeshop is a super hip and fun store with delicious desserts. Everything in their store is fresh and hand-made and, of course, locally owned! Their sense of community is one that you cannot pass up, especially since there is food!
These are just a few gift options for the Falcons who are letting their wings soar. There are so many stones or different gifts that could be more personal than the one that you hold dear, but class pride is the best kind of pride! Happy graduation, seniors, and good luck!
