Graduation Gift Guide

Category: Boulder Blog

Hello downtown friends and families, 

The University of Colorado Boulder Graduation season is in full swing, and it’s time to celebrate your favorite Buff! The commencement is on the 9th, so here are some of my favorite places to pick up gifts for grads. 

As a forever Buff, you can still represent CU as an alum! Stop by BoCo Life, Jackalope & Co, Savvy on Pearl and Where the Buffalo Roam to check out their wide selection of CU gear. For you proud families out there, they have a variety of Colorado “Mom,” “Grandpa” or “Sibling” apparel to show your pride as well. 

If your grad is moving close or far, get them all set up with home goods from Peppercorn and Jones + CO. If they have an eye for interior design, stop by Cedar and Hyde Home for their super cute modern decorations. 

Looking for a memorable piece of jewelry? Stop into The Little Jewel, Starfish Jewelry or Bobbles & Lace for beautiful accessories. If any moms or girlfriends want to match with their grad, look at Angie Stars handmade earrings, necklaces, rings, and super cute hair pieces.   

As an art-loving district, downtown is full of creativity. From Flatiron paintings to geologic maps, Art Mart and Art Source International have everything for your Buff’s Boulder and Colorado aesthetic. 

In honor of National Independent Bookstore Day today, find new reads at Boulder Book Store and Beat Book Shop for your favorite book lover buff. If your grad wants an easy-going morning, take them to Trident Booksellers and Cafe for yummy sips, bites and some relaxing reading. 

Can’t quite decide on the perfect gift for your favorite graduate? Give the gift of a downtown shopping spree with the purchase of a Downtown Boulder gift Card

Happy Graduation, Buffs!
