Gifts for Graduation Made Easy When Looking for that Extra Special Person

April 30, 2013

It’s almost graduation time! Whether your student is finishing high school, college, or a graduate program, you’ll soon be celebrating a wonderful accomplishment. Often, the occasion is marked with a gift, and one you hope will be treasured for years to come. For many of the graduates in your life a thoughtful note or a fun, little something is totally appropriate—and relatively easy to shop for. But what about that special gift for a very dear family member or friend?

These often cause us a lot of angst: What should I give? Where could I find it? I’m running out of time. Graduation is next week--but no pressure. Yikes!! Perhaps the best place to start is by realizing there is no such thing as a perfect gift, and whatever you give, it doesn't have to be remembered for all eternity. Another calming thought: There should be many other momentous occasions in this person’s life, so we can all relax a bit and merely celebrate the graduation day in your home with family and friends.  

Nonetheless, if you are looking for a unique, high-quality gift for your graduate, there’s a store in Georgetown I highly recommend--Sterling and Burke LTD. Located at 2824 PennsylvaniaAvenue, NW just down the street from the Four Seasons Hotel, it offers a wide selection of luxurious products. Much of the store is filled with some of the finest English leather products available today, including leather game sets, super-high end umbrellas, luscious handbags, totes, backpacks, dopp kits, suitcases, weekend bags and business accessories.


The store also carries cufflinks, women’s jewelry and gorgeous leather boxes to put things in and fragrances for both women and men that can’t be found anywhere else in the DC area.

 But I’m only touching the surface here. Browse their store in Georgetown or shop online. Prices range from $50 for leather belts and $130.00 to fun cufflinks to $10,600 for a leather backpack and a mere $25,000 for a historic, six-starred American flag.
