“Gifts like really high quality sheets and bedding can help grads move from the college years to a more sophisticated time in life—a time when being well-rested starts to really matter,” says Dubow. Plus, if the grad in your life is moving into their own place, they may be moving up from dorm-friendly twin size beds to full, queen, or king-size beds. New sheets are a luxury that says “welcome to adulthood.” This sheet set has everything they’ll need to make a mature bed with the added cool factor of boutique-hotel comfort and design.
