It 'tis the season! No, not the season for holidays. It 'tis the season for college acceptances! Throughout the country parents are sighing with relief, and enormous weights have been lifted off of the shoulders of high school seniors. There is a feeling of calm in the air! A great way to celebrate a college acceptance is through a needlepoint gift! The Point of It All has a few suggestions: 1) A personalized way to celebrate a college acceptance is by having Deborah (our custom artist) paint a custom canvas for your child. It could feature the school mascot or simply the school colors. A very popular gift for high school graduates heading to college is a "life belt." To create a life belt, we would collaborate with our customer to pick out logos that have special meaning for their child. For example, a "life belt" could feature your dog, the colleges' mascot, and the high school mascot. "Life belts" are an easy, quick project that your child will cherish forever! 2) When I headed to college I found out the hard way that keys should ALWAYS be kept on a key ring! Losing dorm keys is not only annoying, but also expensive. Needlepointing a keychain ensures your child doesn't lose their dorm keys. Plus, a keyring is the perfect momento to remind your child of how proud you are! 3) Needlepoint by The Collection has cute canvases to remind your college bound child to check in every now and then! Featured below are their "Call Your Mother She Worries" and "E-Mail Your Mother She Worries." Both of these canvases would be cute as a board mount to hang or a pillow.


4) Our fourth and final suggestion is a bit naughty! The Point of It All DOES NOT support underage drinking BUT a funny college present could be a needlepoint flask! Below is a shop model we have. The flask comes with different inserts. This gift is perfect for your junior year college student who just turned 21!!


Congratulations to the all the recent college acceptances!
