Graduation season is here!
They’ve put in the work and are ready to graduate, now you want to find the perfect gift. Whether your grad is leaving high school or college, these gift ideas will get them grinning.
Help them pump up the jam in their new dorm room or apartment with a portable, weather-resistant bluetooth speaker that’ll keep them going between study sessions and on the weekends. Cue “Congratuations” by Post Malone.
This is the gift that keeps on giving. From beauty and grooming to snacks and cooking, there’s a subscription box for everyone. Your grad will love getting their box in the mail every month and will think of you every time they crack a new one open. Pamper the busy grad with Birchbox or FabFitFun, stock their desk with snacks from Graze, or give them the gift of a home-cooked meal with HelloFresh or Blue Apron.
Help your grad stay connected (and off their phone during class or on the new job) with an Apple Watch. They’ll be able to discreetly check incoming texts and calls, get directions, and stay in shape by tracking their fitness. With this gift, there’s no excuse for not texting Mom or Dad back.
They’re ready to take on the world, but first, coffee. A Keurig or Nespresso machine is essential for a dorm room or first apartment. The Keurig K250 Coffee Maker comes in a bunch of fun colors and won’t take up too much precious countertop real estate. For latte and espresso enthusiasts, the Nespresso Pixie is a little luxury they’ll love.
Debatably the least exciting rite of passage? Bills. Treat your grad to a year-long subscription of the service they can’t live without to help ease the pain. Spring for a subscription to Netflix, Hulu, Spotify, or Amazon Prime.
Nothing seals the deal on a good interview like a handwritten thank-you note. Gift your grad with a set of classic thank-you cards personalized with their name that they can always have on hand. This is something they’ll definitely need, but likely won’t want to buy themselves.
Your grad is on to bigger and better things! Help them stay on top of appointments and reminders, make it to meetings on time, answer questions, make calls, and control other smart home devices with a voice-controlled assistant like Google Home or Amazon Echo.
Whether it’s for their morning green smoothie or frozen margaritas, every grad needs a personal blender for their new dwelling. We love the Nutri Ninja Auto-iQ for easy one-touch blending and convenient to-go cups to get you out the door fast. Your grad can prep smoothie ingredients ahead of time in individual freezer bags, then all they’ll have to do is blend and go.
It’s time to retire that old soccer duffle bag. A nice weekender bag is a must-have for quick trips home or an overnight getaway with friends. The Herschel Novel duffle and Madewell’s Transport Weekender are two of our faves.
Skip the trip to Europe and send your grad out into the world with the confidence of a straighter smile. With invisible aligners from SmileDirectClub, a straighter smile can be theirs in an average of just 6 months. Give them the confidence they need to ace a big interview and make an unforgettable first impression. This gift will last a lifetime.
