Millennial Pink Gifts For Millennials

Millennial pink: it’s that pale pink that’s been seemingly everywhere for the last few years. It was one of Pantone’s two colors of 2016 and its popularity is still going strong, especially among the millennials it gets its name from. But why has this soft pink struck such a chord with this generation? Some speculate that its because the color is so muted, it’s almost a neutral. Others say its deeper than that, and that it’s a reflection of how society currently views femininity. But, whatever the reason may be, the color’s popularity is going strong. And we love it too! That’s why we’ve put together this list of millennial pink gifts. These gifts were picked with millennials in mind but can be given to anyone who loves this soft pink trend.

The Meaning of the June Birthstones: Pearl, Alexandrite, and Moonstone

 

Orien Jewelry Pearl, Lab Created Alexandrite from MysticDrop on Etsy, Moonstone from AbizaJewelry on Etsy

Did you know that June has three birthstones? Unlike most months that are associated with just one precious stone, June has three! This means that June babies have three beautiful stones to choose from: pearl, alexandrite, and moonstone. If you’re shopping for a birthday this month, jewelry featuring their birthstone can be a lovely and thoughtful gift. But what are the different benefits and meanings of these three June birthstones, and how do you choose between them? We’ll help you choose by taking an in-depth look at them below!

Pearl

Pearl Threader Earrings
by Poppy Finch, Luna Pearl & Diamond Pendant Necklace
by Lagos, 14K Gold Freshwater Cultured White Pearl Stud Earrings by Pavoi

The popular pearl gemstone is unique in that, unlike most precious stones, it comes from the sea rather than the earth. Pearls can be found in a variety of shades (like black, gold, blue, pink, and brown) but are most commonly a beautiful, shimmering white. Pearls have been prized for centuries and have been used in jewelry since the time of ancient Greece.

In ancient times, pearls were closely associated with the moon and were considered to carry magical properties because of this. But, today, pearls are now most commonly associated with purity and beauty. They are considered one of the most classic and traditional gems. This makes pearls are a great fit for those with a classic style.

One thing to consider when you’re thinking of buying pearls is that they are a delicate gemstone. They are easily scratched and are susceptible to the mild acids in our skin, causing them to need a little more care. But as long as you are careful while wearing your pearls and gently clean your pearls after wearing them, they will stay in perfect condition.

Alexandrite

Natural Pear Shaped Alexandrite and Diamond Pendant in 14k White Gold by May Design, Natural Alexandrite and Diamond Drop Double Halo Pendant in 14k White Gold by Allurez, Lab Created Alexandrite Solitaire Pendant in 14k White Gold by Studs Galore

Alexandrite is an exceptionally rare and beautiful stone. It was discovered around 150 years ago in Russia’s Ural Mountains and has a very unique feature: that it changes colors! Alexandrite shifts colors depending on the time of light it is exposed to. This beautiful stone is green in sunlight and purple-red in incandescent light.

Because of its color-changing properties, Alexandrite has been associated with having magic abilities. It is also thought to bring good luck and strengthen creativity and imagination. Alexandrite is a great fit for those with a glamorous or unique style.

Alexandrite is a durable stone that is great for everyday wear. But, because it is such a rare stone, it can be expensive. Less expensive Alexandrite pieces may be made with the more affordable, lab created version of Alexandrite. Always check to see which one you might be purchasing and consider whether you would be happy with a lab created stone or if you would prefer a natural stone.

Moonstone

Moonstone Ring by Melanie Auld, Faceted Moonstone Bezel Pendant Necklace by Amazon Collection, Moonstone Stackable Ring by Leah Alexandra

Moonstone gets its name because of its beautiful shimmer that resembles the glow of the moon. This gemstone has been used in jewelry since ancient times, and also had a notable period of increased popularity during the Art Nouveau period of the 1920s.

Moonstone is considered lucky and is thought to draw positivity to the wearer. It is a great fit for those who want a more unique-looking stone. It’s important to note that, like pearls, moonstone is somewhat of a less durable stone and should be handled with proper care.

Graduation Gift Idea Series: Great Gifts For High School Graduates

It’s time for the second post in our 2017 Graduation Gift Idea Series! Earlier this week we looked at gifts for college graduates, and today we’ll be focusing on gifts for high school graduates.

Graduating from high school is a huge milestone in a young person’s life. They’re entering into a new stage of life, the beginning of their journey as a young adult. So what’s the best gift for a high school graduate?

A Laptop

Apple MacBook Pro 13.3 Inch Laptop with Retina Display * Microsoft Surface Pro 4 Bundle With Silver Keyboard

There’s no better gift to give a new high school graduate than a laptop. If they’ve been using a computer throughout high school, it’s probably gotten pretty worn out. This is an especially good gift to give those heading off to college!  Mac lovers can’t go wrong with a beautiful new MacBook Pro. And PC fans might prefer this versatile Microsoft Tablet and Keyboard bundle.

A Camera

Sony A1500 Camera In White

A camera is a great way for a young person to capture memories that will last a lifetime. And, while most of us have a camera on our phone at this point, a stand alone camera is best for getting higher quality images and video. Having better quality pictures is something a lot of young people care about a lot right now in the age of social media. We love this Sony A1500 because it captures in great quality, has a flippable view screen (great for selfies), and has a built-in beauty filter that can smooth out portraits as they’re taken.

A Trip

Moschino Paper Doll Multi Logo Leather Passport Case * Eccolo Travel Passport Cover Case in Marble * Moore & Giles Leather Passport Case

Gifting an experience as a graduation gift is a great idea. Giving a loved one the gift of a trip is giving something they’ll never forget! If they’ll be heading somewhere international, adding a cute and functional passport cover to your gift is a nice touch.

Headphones

Beats Solo2 Wired On-Ear Headphone, Luxe Edition in Black * Beats Solo3 Wireless On-Ear Headphones in Rose Gold

Nice headphones can be both functional and stylish. Beats are popular right now due to their great sound quality and attractive design. They come is a wide variety of colors, including this trendy and beautiful rose gold, so you can easily get a pair that would match anyone’s style.

Books

1001 Things Every College Student Needs To KnowThe Freshman Survival Guide: Soulful Advice For Studying, Socializing, and Everything In Between 

Books are a way to help your new graduate get ready for all the exciting new experiences that lay in their future. We love these two thorough yet lighthearted books that help new graduates headed to college get ready for their Freshman year!

Graduation Gift Idea Series: 5 Great Gifts For College Graduates

Graduation season is upon us and that means it’s time to celebrate! Graduating from college is an incredible accomplishment. It is the culmination of years of hard work and dedication. So what should you gift a new college graduate? You’ll want to focus on a giving something that relates to the new stage of life they’re entering. Check out our list of ideas that are perfect for new college graduates below!

A Great Bag

Vince Camuto Dopia Leather Briefcase *  The Transport Tote by Madewell

A high quality bag is a gift that is both functional and beautiful. New college graduates need a bag that can fit a folder that holds resumes, documents, a laptop, and their everyday essentials like their wallet and keys. Above are two great options, the first of which this classic and versatile Vince Camuto Dopia Leather Briefcase. The other is the Madewell Transport Tote– a chic but still practical option for those who prefer to carry a purse over a briefcase.

Champagne Flutes

Ravenna Champagne FlutesVeuve Clicquot Yellow Label Champagne

Champagne flutes are a fun gift that a new graduate can enjoy both immediately and for years to come.  This set of four Ravenna champagne flutes are a great starter set of champagne glasses– they’re nice enough to be a great gift but not so nice that breaking one would be stressful. To make this gift a complete experience, include a bottle of champagne with the flute set.

A Business Card Holder

Leather Business Card Case by RumorsGifts

Business cards are a must for those just setting out in their career. And a business card holder is great for making sure that those business cards stay in great shape– they don’t want to hand potential clients or employers a crumpled or dirty card. This leather and metal business card is a stylish way to keep a new graduate’s cards looking pristine. It’s also monogram-able, so it can be personalized.

A Nice Watch

Men’s Movado Museum Bracelet Watch‘The Birdy’ Bracelet Watch by Shinola

Many see owning their first nice watch as a marker of passing into adulthood. This makes gifting a fine watch to a graduate a thoughtful and special gift. Watches with metal bracelet style straps are the most appropriate style for the office (or a job interview), for both men and women. This Movado watch is strong, classic, and embraces the current trend of minimalism we’re seeing in men’s watches. And this stunning rose gold Shinola bracelet watch is a great choice for the young woman as it is both professional and chic.

Money

The Tassel Was Worth The Hassle Card * Congratulations Exclamation Card * And So The Adventure Begins Card

The last item on our list is one that many graduates want the most: money. Money can help a new graduate have a little extra ease while entering an uncertain chapter of their life. If you’re gifting money, you can put either a check or cash into a nice greeting card. Be sure to write a thoughtful message in the card to make this gift more personal.
