Shopaholic Mommy would like to congratulate all of the 2012 graduates! Whether your child is graduating from elementary school, middle school, high school or college, he or she’s worked hard and is embarking on the next stage of her education or life, whatever that may be. Or maybe you, Mom, are the newest graduate! If so, congratulations on balancing family, work and school! We know that’s not easy!
As your graduate strives to make her mark on the world, you might be looking for the perfect gift. Consider buying her TOMS shoes or TOMS sunglasses. These products are built to last, and they are made from high-quality materials. TOMS even has a vegan line for those who don’t want to use animal products in their clothing. And, even more importantly, when you gift your graduate with a TOMS item, you’re also gifting someone less fortunate with a pair of shoes or eye care necessary for good visual health. Today’s graduates (of any age!) are pretty well-aware of the world around them, and will appreciate the compassion for others that goes along with a TOMS purchase.
So many young people are embracing the TOMS idea. It has spread from college campus to high school campus. The idea of giving back just by making a purchase of shoes that are cool and comfortable are an idea kids can really get behind! TOMS are perfect for kids because you just put them on and are on your way. No laces or socks needed and they match with just about everything!
Buying a pair of plain TOMS shoes can make a great pre-graduation gift, particularly for your middle- or high-schooler. Purchase a pair in white or another light color, and send your child to school with a fine-point permanent marker during her last week of classes. She can have her friends sign the shoes for a memento she can look fondly back on for years. This would also make a wonderful end-of-the-year gift for a teacher; he’ll get a one-of-a-kind memento from the class of 2012 and you’ll be gifting an underprivileged child with a pair of shoes at the same time.
Use one of our TOMS coupons to save some money on your gift purchase. Even when you save money with a TOMS coupon code, the company donates a pair of shoes or glasses through the One For One campaign. This year, give a graduation gift that does double duty by shopping from TOMS!
