Another graduation season is upon us. Thousands of students are walking across that stage and right into the real world. Many are in for quite the shock. This is why we at The Gates Company like to give intentional gifts to the graduates in our lives. Intentional gifts that help set the foundation for their new lives. After all, the real world is quite different from anything they’ve already experienced… even if they think otherwise.
