Corkcicle Eola Bucket Cooler

“The Corkcicle backpack cooler is great for senior trips or the beach,” says The Keeping Room owner Andi Berthelot.

Convenient and cute, this ice chest is the gift that keeps on giving. It’s small scale and easy-to-carry design means that it will be a grad’s new best friend.


LSU Playing Cards

“The LSU playing cards are great for both boys and girls,” she notes.

This unisex gift is perfect for grads who are either heading off to LSU or leaving. They’re a fun and eye-catching keepsake that they will keep for years to come.
