Top 10 Gifts to Celebrate Grads & Teachers

The school year is quickly coming to a close. While 2020 may be different than any year any of us have experienced, there are many ways it’s the same. 

Despite lost opportunities that often directly relate to a senior year (like a graduation ceremony, for instance!) 2020 graduates are still preparing to move on to the next phase of their lives. And educators across the country have done more than their fare share to make it possible for students to continue learning. 

Celebrate their hard work with a handmade gift! Here are a few suggestions that will withstand the test of time.
