Hello GF&G fans!I It’s Maggie, the newest member of the Grand Frames team! Today we are introducing our new weekly trends blog. Katie, Elissa, and I spend way too much time surfing the blogs and reading magazines to make sure we are keeping up on all of the current trends so we can give the best style and creative advice to our customers. Here we will introduce, revisit, and bring together things that inspire us and how to integrate it into daily life!
As summer gets closer, graduation season is in full swing! When picking gifts for your favorite grads, why not incorporate this spring’s most talked about literary classic: The Great Gatsby. Not only is Gatsby close to my heart because F. Scott Fitzgerald is from St. Paul, but who doesn’t love seeing Leonardo DiCaprio on the big screen in pastel suits?!
While gifting Leo may be difficult to wrap, here are a few gift ideas (and dream gifts) for your Gatsby grad!
1. A great addition to any dorm: Lazy Susan frame, available at Grand Frames & Gifts, $95.00
2. For an on-the-go college grad: Needle point flask, available at Grand Frames & Gifts, $65.00
3.Something to start any grads grown up book collection: Graphic Image leather collectible Great Gatsby book (personalization available) $89 at Grand Frames & Gifts
4.The dream gift that would be worth going back to school for: Tiffany & Co diamond earrings from the Gatsby Collection
5. The getaway gift: A night in the Gatsby Suite at the Plaza Hotel in NYC, priceless (a girl can dream, right?)
Personally I’d take one of each! These gifts, like Gatsby, are timeless classics that your grad can hang onto and will find new uses for them as they time goes on.
Happy Grad Season, old sport, and we hope to see you at GF&G soon!
