PMS Prioritizing MySelf is a brand designed to uplift and empower women. Their T-shirts are cute, lightweight and ultra-comfortable while also giving back to great causes.

There's a good reason Truly Beauty has been all over our TikTok feeds lately. Their products are incredible—and they might smell even better than they work! For your special grad, we recommend Truly Beauty's Unicorn Fruit Whipped Body Polish. Its rainbow color alone is enough to make anyone light up, but it also leaves skin so smooth, buffed and moisturized thanks to a combination of matcha, chia, acai and rose. Plus, its fruity smell gives us life.

Paddywax Yin-Yang Cactus Flower/Watermint Candle: $33
This Paddywax candle doesn't just look impressive–its yin-yang shape also means it holds two incredible scents in one. The black wick candle is cactus flower-scented, while the white wick candle is watermint. The effect when you light them both is a combination of pear, mint, jasmine and vanilla, making the two in tandem so much better than they were alone. We also love that this candle is a reminder to new graduates to maintain balance in life and take the good in with the bad while they soak in its delicious fragrances.
DW Home Zodiac Candles: $16 Each
Can you tell we love candles? We adore these zodiac candles from DW Home because you can get them in the sign of the grad you're celebrating. Not only is the packaging delightful, with the stars of the sign decorating the lid, but the scents of these black wax candles are gorgeous, too. We can't get enough of the cinnamon and incense essence of the Aries candle, and the punchy citrus of the Sagittarius candle—but we bet your grad will love whatever fragrance is associated with their sign.
