Finally, after hours and hours spent filling out applications and writing college essays, and then enduring the interminable waiting game, college acceptance (and rejection) letters are beginning to trickle in. Our advice is simple — toss the rejection letters. And celebrate every acceptance whether it is your first choice school or your safety school! Celebrate your achievements and the schools who appreciate you! Once you narrow your choices down and ultimately make the final decision as to which school will be the lucky school to include you in their class of 2020, begin wearing your new school colors. Splurge on college gear. Buy college t-shirts and sweatshirts, hats and caps, college pennants, bedding, watches and jewelry, and anything and everything else to proclaim your new college spirit.

Best Preschool and Kindergarten Graduation Present
Every graduation counts >> college, high school, even preschool and kindergarten graduations. Use your child's preschool or kindergarten graduation to reinforce that he or she is growing up and is now old enough and wise enough to be rewarded with the responsibility of an allowance. Financial experts are largely in agreement, even children as young as four and five can begin to learn about the value and responsibility of money. Give your children a few coins each week to save in a fun personalized coin bank from Frecklebox and tell them how proud you are of their accomplishments. This is one of the most important gifts you will ever give your child and it will be appreciated for a lifetime. Continue Reading →
As you know we are always on the look out for adorable Pi Beta Phi gifts and doodads.

Today through May 2, 2013 all clearance costumes & shoes are drastically reduced to $10 at Costume Express. This is an unbelievable sale. It is definitely worth the time to check out the discounted costumes and stock up not only for Halloween but for your year long costume wearing events. Think elementary school productions, Memorial Day and 4th of July parades, and children's birthday parties.
Do you have a graduating high school senior leaving for college in the fall? Many of the college mixers are themed costume parties so what better a gift than a fully stocked costume box. Izzy's costume box includes everything from Disney princess costumes to cute animal costumes to sassy angels and sizzling devil costumes. Many costumes serve multiple purposes – for example the featured clowning around costume works great for a neon themed party as well as a Mardi Gras party.
Don't dawdle – these costumes are flying off the shelf.
Travel in style this holiday season! Uncle Tom bought Izzy one of these large Vera Bradley duffels as a holiday gift a few years ago and it remains her go to weekend bag. We think it is an especially perfect Christmas gift or Hanukkah present for a high school senior heading off to college It is large enough to pack just about everything in her closet (ok – I am exaggerating but just a bit) yet lightweight and “smushable” enough to be able to fit into fully loaded trunks and airplane overhead compartments. This travel bag has long handles and loads of room, yet is still carry-on compliant. One easy-access end pocket.
We chose to feature Vera Bradley's Large Duffel Tea Garden pattern both because we like it and because when you carry an item in this color, you’re showing your support for breast cancer research. Vera Bradley contributes approximately $1 million annually to the Vera Bradley Foundation for Breast Cancer, from the sale of items in all of their colors.
And best yet, this duffel is on sale today, Cyber Monday! Reduced to just $49.99 (Regularly $85.00)
