Got a Grad that’s Tough to Buy For?

We know that sometimes it might feel like a bit of a cop-out to give someone a gift card or money.  After all, there aremoney maze so many great gift ideas at!  But if that person on your list is difficult to buy for, we might have the right solution.

When someone is graduating from high school or college, sometimes it makes more sense to give them money so that they can get themselves started on their post-graduation journey.  However, you still want to make sure they get a little bit of joy out of your monetary gift, right?  Why not put the gift in a Money Maze Gift Holder?  This cute little gift will keep your grad laughing until they finally get their money.

The Money Maze is a transparent cube, so your grad will see exactly what’s waiting for them at the end of the maze.  All you have to do is open the door, put your gift inside, and lock it.  They won’t be able to open it up until they get the little metal ball through the 3-D maze.  They just graduated, after all, they should be up for a little bit of mental exercise!

Celebrate Graduation With Growing Up Girls

girlgraduateLittle girls definitely appreciate some of the more delicate things in life, and that’s why a figure from the Growing Up Girls collection is a perfect gift.  Ideally, it’s the kind of thing that should be started from the time she’s a baby— but it’s never really too late to catch up!  In fact, graduation might be a perfect time to put the collection together.

If that special young lady in your life is graduating from either high school or college, there’s a Growing Up Girl that works as a stand-alone gift.  The Growing Up Girl Graduate can help commemorate the occasion.  This beautiful porcelain figurine comes in either blonde or brunette, and can be displayed prominently with the graduate’s diploma!

Hopefully this figurine finishes your Growing Up Girl collection.  If you haven’t been keeping up with the dolls, don’t worry about it!  Your Graduate Girl gift might start a tradition later on down the line.  So when it comes time for that graduate to have her own daughter, she’ll remember the way she felt when she received her Growing Up Girl.  She’ll start all over again by giving her daughter the New Baby Growing Up Girl and go on up to Sweet Sixteen.

It all starts with a graduation gift!

Summertime Pals from Webkinz

armadilloIt’s getting to be that time of year again.  Kids are getting out of school, and they’ll be spending a lot of their time at home.  Why not reward the kids after a long (and hopefully successful!) school year with a new pal that they can spend some of those warm summer days with?

Luckily, Webkinz is featuring a new cuddly friend just in time for summer.  The Rainbow Armadillo is here and ready for some summer cuddling.  Armadillos are native to the warmer parts of the country, so this little guy can take the summertime heat.  Don’t worry, he’s not like other armadillos— his “armor” is more like soft plush!  And his bright rainbow coloring really helps him stand out from all the other armadillos out there.

Another Webkinz friend with an affinity for warmer climates is the Glamour Gecko.  This pretty little lady is currently available only through select stores, and you can find here here at Coppin’s Hallmark!  The Glamour Gecko receives some special gifts online— including a Glitz and Glamour Disco Ball, and a pet-specific food, the Crème de Cricket.

Summertime is almost here, so now is the time to shop for your summertime Webkinz!
