Gift Ideas for The Graduate

After Mother’s Day, we must consider a gift for that high school or college grad – yours, theirs, and the ones who call you aunt/uncle just because :).  While a gift card is the safest bet, or a couple of hundred $$$ bills stuffed inside a card, I think an actual grown up gift with some thought put into it – might shock the typical out of the graduate in your life.

It mattered not the weather is cold for a San Franciscan, we bundled up and left the hotel a little after ten in the morning to do, as usual, a walking tour – not really with any particular place in mind.

One place, which I’ve frequented quite often in my lifetime is the Amalfi Coast and with it, I have fallen in love with many properties to spend six nights/seven days. For that thought and of course a romantic destination recommend, I suggest Casa Angelia.
