Oh the Places You'll Go…
Taking a Piece of Hawaii on to you on your next adventure!
Congratulations! Today is your day.You’re off to great places! You’re off and away! That’s how the Dr. Seuss classic Oh the Places You’ll Go begins. It’s a whimsical look at life after the college experience, complete with the rhymes and made up words from one of our favorite childhood authors.
It’s a celebration of all that your University of Hawaii student has achieved in a magical and nostalgic way. But giving a Dr. Suess book isn’t all your graduate may need as they begin their new phase of life. We’ve created this gift guide just for the University of Hawaii grad!
Is it the perfect gift? We think it’s one of a few gifts for grads that will get them to the places they’ll go.
Before starting their next journey, your graduate might also need cash. Whether they’re travelling for the summer, moving to the mainland, buying their first professional wardrobe, we’re sure they will appreciate your help. If you’re feeling creative, make a money lei to remind them of their time in Hawaii.
And when you’re in a slump, you’re not in for much fun. Un-slumping yourself is not easily done. - Dr. Seuss, Oh the Places You’ll Go
Graduation is challenging for many students, especially if this is the first time they are moving off island away from Hawaii. They’re used to having family and old friends close by. Now their time is their own but they also have a need to keep in touch with the friends they’ve made along the way. Why not set them up for success with a techie gift of an upgraded cell phone or tablet.
The Waiting Place, for people just waiting. - Dr. Seuss, Oh the Places You’ll Go
Some recent grads take a bit of time to decide what they want to do with their lives. While they’re deciding, give them the gift of the outdoors. Spend a day with your grad surfing, hiking or a weekend at their favorite beach; some of us get our best ideas when we’re spending time outdoors. And… your grad may be leaving sooner than you think! Spend some quality time with them.
That’s not for you. Somehow you’ll escape all that waiting and staying. You’ll find the bright places where the Boom Bands are playing! - Dr. Seuss, Oh the Places You’ll Go
For those graduates who are heading off to professional career or starting their own businesses, give them a piece of Hawaii to remember their time here. A gift of Lane Tanner Designs jewelry can be worn as part of a professional wardrobe OR for days off surfing in the sun or exploring a new city.
Pick a piece that represents your grad. Where is her favorite island spot? For some it’s Lanikai, and for others it’s Makua. Either way, we have a jewelry piece that will fit your grads personality perfectly!
Whether you’re giving a practical gift or a fun experience, we wish your loved well as they make their way and Oh the places they’ll go after their University of Hawaii graduation!
