Top Gift Recommendations for Graduates | Black Dog Salvage Style

Congratulations to Koiner's daughter, Alden, who graduated this weekend and joined the Black Dog Hokie Alumnus; Uncle Robert, Uncle Ralph, Susie and me (Christa).
In honor of all graduates, we thought we'd post our top gift recommendations... Black Dog Style!

Perfect for a beach week, strolling neighborhood farmers markets or quick overnight trips... Medina Baskets.

Knobstoppers make a fun gift for the wine lover or food connoisseur.

Beverage tubs, from Whiteside Designs, for all those graduation parties and Rug bags from Dash & Albert with plenty of room to store a laptop, iPad or any other gadgets.

Serving platters and ice buckets, perfect for entertaining.

This dragonfly dish would make a sweet gift. When I googled the symbolism of the dragonfly, here's what came up... if it's on Wikipedia it must be true, right? Can't think of a more fitting symbol for graduation, congrats to all the grads!

The meaning of a dragonfly changes with each culture. The main symbolisms of the dragonfly are renewal, positive force and the power of life in general. Dragonflies can also be a symbol of the sense of self that comes with maturity. Also, as a creature of the wind, the dragonfly frequently represents change. And as a dragonfly lives a short life, it knows it must live its life to the fullest with the short time it has - which is a lesson for all of us.
