Dr. Seuss’ Oh, The Places You’ll Go! is a great read.  His wonderfully wise graduation speech for children starting out in the world, be they preschool, high school, or college grads! With his trademark use of humorous verse and illustrations, Dr. Seuss addresses the ups and downs life presents while encouraging readers to find the success that lies within them all. It is perhaps best known for the line, "Will you succeed? Yes, you will indeed. (98¾% guaranteed.)"

A graduation gift should not only reward the hard work for a diploma, but it should inspire greater success as they enter into the next chapter of their lives. 

Heading off to college is an unforgettable experience. Make sure they're prepared for campus life with dorm room essentials that make great graduation gifts.  College graduates can use things to get them ready for the business world-trade in the dorm room for a boardroom.  

'Tis the season for caps and gowns, diplomas, and standing ovations. Whether you're attending a high school or college graduation this spring, celebrate post-ceremony with a gift that's sure to delight the overachiever in your life.
