Whether it is for their birthday or a yearly holiday, here are a few practical presents you can give them for a successful job hunt.
Pens and Planner

A fact of life: any interviewee will be judged according to his or her appearance. A set or two of proper office attires that fit your offspring’s preferred color scheme and style is a very practical and useful gift.

Add in an elegant watch and a few simple but chic Moissanite jewelry pieces to complete the ensemble. Look for a Moissanite jewelry sale for this.
