Spoil Your Graduate With These Remarkable Gifts!

Spoil Your Graduate With These Remarkable Gifts!

It's an exciting time for the graduate in your life. After years of pop quizzes, all-night study sessions and endless hours spent in the library - they finally get to see their hard work pay off. Life is about to change for them (and probably you!), drastically. So, wipe those tears and start celebrating their new chapter! These fun, and unique gifts are sure to wow them and get them excited for their future.

Poppin' Bottles

Gifting champagne isn't the exactly a unique gift idea, but a customized bottle of bubbly sure is! They'll be the hit their grad party.

Your grad must be of legal drinking age to enjoy this gift.

Dorm Room (Or First Apartment!) Decor

Most graduates are starting off with next to nothing, and there's nothing motivating about a plain, empty space. Get them some decor that can act as lighting AND inspiration. Two birds, one stone - you're welcome!

We love these neon desk lamps!
Our color-changing light boxes are the perfect accessory to any room.

A Star!

That's right, you can register a star under anyones name! Give them the gift that will literally urge them to shoot for the stars.

There's tons of different registries to chose from, so do your research!

Plane Tickets

What is better than the gift of travel? Award your graduates hard work with a pair of tickets to anywhere their favourite airline flies. 

Really want to give them a send-off? Buy them a one-way!

Gas Card

Give them no excuses, and hand them a pre-paid gas card to help them get around from interview to interview. 

Fuel their future, literally!

The Latest in Spring Weddings for Trendy Millennials

Tis the season - that's right, wedding season! Spring calls for warm weather, the first weddings of the season, and new & exciting trends to play with when planning your wedding. We're talking off-the-shoulder dresses, copper tones, and succulents. From color styles and food walls, to different social media features - we've got you covered!

Punny Wedding Favors

A wedding is a day for celebration & laughter, and the best way to say goodbye to your guests is to send them off laughing with a clever party favor. Because lets be honest, they’ll be cradling their head in the morning, cursing the open bar anyways - so why not do them a favor.

Social Media Coordinator (that's right!)

It’s a shame when someone has to miss out on your wedding. And who has time to constantly be posting photos on Instagram? A Social Media Coordinator posts real-time photos & makes sure that your loved ones don’t miss out on your big day! Genius, right?

Donut Station

Believe it or not, donut walls are the hottest wedding trend right now. Because 1. Who doesn’t love donuts, and 2. Skip the fancy, expensive catering!

Snapchat Geofilters

Take your wedding to the next level with your own personalized Snapchat geofilter. Think about it: most guests will be snapping away anyways, so why not let them play with a filter designed by the bride & groom themselves?

Whisky Bar

Calling all grooms (and brides, too)! Add a little rustic flavor to your wedding with a classic whiskey bar. Just make sure to have a traditional bar as well for the non-whiskey drinkers.

#EarthDay: 5 Ways to Recycle Your Love For Mother Nature

#EarthDay: 5 Ways to Recycle Your Love For Mother Nature

She gives us fresh water, the greenest vegetables, and more wildlife than you can imagine. That’s right, Mother Nature; and what better day to celebrate our thriving planet than with Earth Day (April 22)?

Now, our Earth can’t survive on its own, so we’ve come up with 5 easy ways for you to show your appreciation for Mother Earth and all that nature has to offer us:

Pick up the trash:

It might be gross, but every little bit does the Earth good! Whether you're on your daily walk with your pup or on your way to the grocery store, if you find a plastic bottle lying in the middle of the sidewalk, pick it up & recycle it.

 
Plant a flower:

Add on to our wonderful planet by planting a seed! Watch it flourish and provide bees with all that delish nectar.

I'd be lost without my plant children 🌿

Buy organic:

Not only does buying organic preserve our ecosystem, but it also reduces pollution, supports local farming, keeps our bodies free of pesticides and chemicals, and tastes better! What's not to love here?

When life gives you lemons🍋........buy a lemon shirt? 🤔No. That's not it but this shirt is so adorable, right?!

Volunteer:

Show Mother Nature some physical love by volunteering. Restore a bird habitat, plant trees in your neighborhood, or clear a creek. Anything! The options are endless (and you'll feel accomplished afterwards!).

It ain't easy being...

Go for a walk:

Nothing better than taking a long walk outside on Earth Day. Leave your notification-ridden phone at home and take in all of the greenery that Mother Nature has to offer. 

Sometimes you need to escape! What adventures are you up to today? 🌲

Turn off the lights:

While it might be tempting to leave that bathroom light on, make an effort to not use copious amounts of electricity today! Just think of the savings on your next utility bill.

In love with my @mycinemalightbox 💡
