We’d like to suggest some graduation gifts that range from thoughtful to the gift of a lifetime; something for every graduate on your list.

  1. Notebooks

A set of three to hold thoughts of the past, the present and the future between covers featuring with some of our most recognizable stripes and patterns. See them here:  NOTEBOOKS

  1. Mugs

Pendleton’s generously sized mug will hold your favorite beverage, and go along to the dorm to heat soup in the microwave. You have so many choices, with mugs that commemorate your favorite national park, legendary mugs that tell stories, and everyone’s favorite Portland mug! See them all here:  MUGS

  1. Water Bottles

Here’s another shining idea, especially since our water bottles and thermoses are made in partnership with Kleen Kanteen. Your favorite patterns, like Harding and Silver Bark, make these durable and nontoxic bottles even  more special. See them here: WATER BOTTLES

  1. Oversized Towels

Colorful, beautiful and practical, these towels will tag along on a summer trip or wrap the grad up on the way from shower to dorm room. There are colors and patterns for everyone. See them here: TOWELS

  1. Blankets

The ultimate gift for your ultimate grad. With proper love and care, a Pendleton blanket will last for generations. In patterns, plaids and stripes, in sizes that range from throw to king, there is a perfect Pendleton blanket for every grad on your list: Motor Robes for the sports fan. National Park blankets for the environmentalist. Camp blankets for the lover of the great outdoors. And a library of dazzling traditional patterns, each with a story to tell.

Pendleton Jacquard Plates, Cups, and Tabletop Style.

Tabletop Perfection

We were so excited when we found just the way to showcase some of our jacquard patterns in these plate sets. Our Pendleton Home team had fun isolating the design elements, figuring out the most pleasing rations and repeats, choosing accent colors. These patterns really know how to liven up a tabletop.

Here’s a closer look at Hacienda, based on our Hacienda blanket.

And there’s no better way to set off western tableware than one of our blankets: Spirit of the Peoples shown below.
