      A Gift Guide for Every Type of Grad

      A Gift Guide for Every Type of Grad

      We gotta give it up for the grads of 2021! Let’s just say it’s been a hell of a year and we’re in awe of all they’ve been able to accomplish. And while there will be lots of masks and toilet paper sashes to be seen at the ceremonies, we trust they'll bring their A-game stage walk and close out college in style. Our gift guide below is for every type of grad, from the future lady boss planning out her world domination to the one who subsists only on mac and cheese. Choose Oakland this graduation season and spread the local love!
