Tips for Graduation Gift Ideas that Make the Grade

Graduation is more than a celebration of exams passed and glowing GPAs achieved - it marks the moment before grads enter the real world. High school grads are bound for college, and college and university grads are entering a new stage of adult life. Find a gift that says congratulations, sends encouragement and love, or helps prep your grad for what lies ahead. 

1

Remind Grads to Think Big

Consider graduation gift ideas that look beyond commencement. Give a leather portfolio to the just-out-of-college grad for encouragement to land that job.

2

Keep Your Grad Powered Up for Studying

College students need to be powered up in two ways to function. Caffeine is one important source of alertness, so think of graduation gift ideas related to coffee. And then, of course, they need all their devices - phone, tablet, laptop - powered up and ready to use, so think charging devices and portable chargers.

3

Feed Your Grad

As a college student would say, "Send food, please." Graduation gift ideas that deliver food to their door are sure winners (think a pizza-of-the-month club). For grads craving a taste of home cooking, give kitchen tools that make cooking easier, like a 45-second omelet maker.

4

Give Helpful Tools for a Dorm Room or First Apartment

 Starting fresh on your own means you probably don't have an extensive set of tools if something goes wrong. Think about a practical graduation gift like a homeowner's tool kit or a personalized bag for the dreaded task of doing laundry.

5

Celebrate the College Town or That Well-Earned Diploma

Show your grad how you're bursting with pride. Scout out a frame for the beloved diploma or a custom blanket in the college colors of their alma mater.

6

Simply Send Your Love

From personalized jewelry to artwork for your grad's desk, look for graduation gift ideas that remind grads that they're loved.
