Picking out the perfect gift for your grad can be tougher than you think. Here are some thoughtful, practical gift ideas that any new grad will be sure to love and more importantly, use.
Life after college mostly consists of trying to survive in the real world. Help furnish your grad’s tiny apartment with an Ikea Gift Card.
Keep your grad looking sharp for job interviews with a professional looking blazer or shirt. This H&M Blazer is only $34.95.
And speaking of interviews: keep your grad walking confidently (that means no blisters!) with a pair of Fit in Clouds rollable flats.
Chances are, your grad has been living off their microwave and/or dining hall for the past 4 years. A fun cookbook- like Keys to the Kitchen, $23 on Amazon- is a great way to introduce them into the world of adulthood (and proper nutrition) once they’re out on their own.
If you’re looking to splurge a little on your grad, the iPad Mini ($299 from Walmart) is a great way to go. Whether it’s for keeping up with their Google Calendar or playing Angry Birds, they’ll be sure to love it.
This personalized necklace from Etsy is a creative and thoughtful way to celebrate your grad’s alma mater and graduation year. Priced at $49, you can customize this necklace any way you want.
Who doesn’t love a little nostalgia? Dr. Seuss’ “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!” ($9.50 on Amazon) will encourage your grad to follow their post-college dreams, whatever they may be. Who knew a childhood book could be so insightful?
Little gadgets like this bullhorn speaker for the iPhone are always fun. If you’re looking for an affordable tech treat, this speaker is only $10!
