One of my best friends recently graduated from a masters program. She worked her butt of for the last 7 years, and her grad ceremony is coming up in a couple weeks. She went through a lot to get where she is, and graduated with honors while taking care of two terminally ill parents who recently both passed away within 3 months of each other.
I want to get her something great for her grad, and our other best girlfriend is willing to go in with me and get her something together.
About her:
She is very stylish
She is very passionate about business and her goal is to be a CEO one day
She is young (26)
She is currently house shopping

Any ideas? I was thinking a great watch but her aunt bought her that.
Would it be crazy to do like a great Burberry bag? Or like a nice pair of basic black pumps?
I want to do something related to her business side but not make it to lame like an engraved paper weight or something lol.

Budget wise we want to spend about $100-125 each at the top.

Wow, that's awesome!
What about going in for a frame for her diploma.
Mine is floating and has my cords on the outside of it.
Or, what about something for her house?
What does she like? Cooking, decorating?
Along the lines of your Burberry bag idea, what about a good quality leather tote bag? Something timeless in style that she could use to carry a laptop, etc.
Tiffany's makes a pen in the iconic blue Tiffany color, very feminine, very stylish - $110.00. Google Tiffany pens and you'll see it.

I don't know if you can get a Burberry bag for that money and it's kind of been over done because there are a million fake Burberry's floating around.

If you want something Burberry that hasn't been copied to death, how about a scarf with the Burberry pattern? They come in silk, wool and cashmere variations.

I would vote against pumps because of the problem getting the right fit.

Majorica makes very modern stylish pearls. You can get black Tahitian and white pearl earrings in modern styles for $75.00 or pearl necklaces for a little more I'm not suggesting something old fashioned - something modern and stylish but still sophisticated. All the good dept. stores carry them.

Anyway, it's a sweet thing to do. Have fun selecting something!

Stylers: Mix Curls in a Bottle into everything for shine. Terrible pj
Sometimes try roller sets - classic glamor but I prefer my curls.

Love the pearls idea!!!!

What about a briefcase?

I think we decided to go with a Tiffany's bracelet! She has always had a Tiffany's obsession but never got anything from there so we'll do that, she deserves it.
She's a little name brand nutty

From your description of her, you can't go wrong with a Tiffany's bracelet! They have some beautiful ones in your price range.

Also, I've always thought that the nice thing about a bracelet is that the wearer can look at it and get pleasure from it all the time, whereas they can't see earrings or a necklace most of the time.

Lucky friend!
