Spring is a time of renewal, but it’s also a time of change. Graduates of junior high, high school and college will face new lives and new challenges in the Fall. Over the next few months, they will receive gifts that will help prepare them for the next steps of their lives. Common presents include mascot t-shirts, school supplies, or dorm gear, but we’re believers in the importance of sentimental support. Life is a long, scary road, and everyone needs a reminder from time to time that they are loved. That’s why creating a scrapbook is the perfect send-off to high school, college, or post-grad life. Making a scrapbook is more of a commitment than simply stuffing an envelope with cash, but it will be cherished for much longer. There’s no sweeter way to say “I love you, and good luck” than slipping your loved one a homemade scrapbook right before they embark on their first day of a new life next Fall.
The key to a memorable scrapbook is quirky details that show how well you know the person receiving the gift. Stickers, embellishments and stamps are all great ways to decorate your layouts with a bit of extra flair. If your loved one has a sense of humor, they’ll love the Momenta Mounted Stamp – Good Idea. Not only is the stamp ultra-trendy with a mustache motif, but also inspirational in its message. “A good idea is right under your nose” is great advice no matter what stage of life your child or grandchild is entering. Whenever they look at their scrapbook, whether they’re second-guessing their major or struggling with a project or confused about which companies to apply to, this stamp reminds them to trust their judgement and that everything will work out in the end. Available for only $6.79.
