It’s graduation season, but what to get your favorite grad that isn’t the same old thing? We’ve got some unique gifts for every budget that are unique and fun for your grad!
We just love this simple keychain! For a meaningful but affordable gift, give them this graduation year penny keychain. How fun is that grad cap on Abe Lincoln?
Help your grad stay up to date with technology with a gift that keeps them fully connected! They can play their favorite music, add items to a shopping list (even a shared one!), and even control smart electronics like lights and fans! This is a must for the tech savvy grad.
Graduating can be daunting. You are heading into the adult world doing adult things all on your own. Help out your grad by offering them a little simplicity. Chef’d offers fantastic meal kits delivered right to your door, and they have teamed up with Spoon University to offer a college meal plan! The college meal plan includes quick easy meals, grab and go meals, snacks, drinks and fresh fruit. It’s a gentle transition into adulthood!
It can be hard to remember to stay hydrated when you’re on your own for the first time, but not with a great drink tumbler! Let your grad shout their school pride from the rooftops with these awesome tumblers from Tervis!
Give your grad the gift of a timeless accessory-a watch! These watches from Armitron are modern and sleek, perfect for a treasured gift!
Who doesn’t love candy?! If you’re looking for a fun gift, candy is sure to please every single grad. Let them choose the candy they want with Sugarwish! Send them their wish, they get to choose from the massive selection of classic and favorite candies Sugarwish offers. Once they choose, their candy is shipped right to them!
As students head into more rigorous schooling or into the work world, a thoughtful gift would be one they can use for years, and the Evodesk is just that! With adjustable heights and customizable colors and designs, the sleek Evodesk is an affordable standing desk any grad would be stoked to receive!
Your grad is going to want to come home every once in a while, so why not gift them with a gorgeous bag they can do that with? These Weekender bags from LuluDharma are classic and will be used for years to come!
For some, after graduation comes travel. Those grads don’t need housewares or furniture, why not luggage?! Not just any luggage though, gift them luggage that weighs itself, charges their phone and tells them when it’s coming down baggage claim…Raden luggage comes in a variety of striking colors, sure to please any grad!
If your grad is taking a gap year and wants to travel, look into Visit.org to gift them an immersive and impactful travel experience hosted by do-good organizations. Visit.org works with charitable partners to create unique experiences around the globe that promote causes such as sustainability, women’s empowerment, human rights, animal welfare, and heritage preservation AND 100% of the revenue goes right back into the local communities! Your grad will get a fun travel experience they (and you) can feel good about! Best part? Prices start at only $19 for memorable travel experiences!!!
We love this feather necklace from Dogeared, and the meaning behind it is perfect for a graduate. Give them the reminder that they’ve got the wings they need to fly and to enjoy their new freedom! It’s trendy and beautiful and makes for a great keepsake for your grad.
We hope these help inspire you with some unique gift ideas for the grad in your life!
