Con(grad)ulations: Gift guide for the graduate

By London Sinclair, Podcast Editor

After years of term papers, finals, GPAs and rest-of-your-life questions, you’re off to college just to do it all over again!


Homesick

SoCal – SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA CANDLE

US $34

As Judy Garland famously states as Dorothy in the 1939 classic film, The Wizard of Oz, “there’s no place like home.” Dorothy then clicked her heels and hoped for the return to the comforts of her own bed and her beloved Auntie Em and Uncle Henry. While no one I know possesses the magic within the ruby red slippers, Homesick candles are the next best thing. With scents ranging from home state to your significant other’s state, this gift will remind your grad that the people, places and moments that matter most are not so far away.
