list of gift ideas for the graduate

Graduation invitations and announcements have begun to find their way to mailboxes and “Pomp & Circumstance” will be the theme song of the month.  Whether you know someone graduating from high school or college this year, a gift is a way to show your support for his or her strong ending and to contribute to the graduate’s new beginning.  With that in mind, there are a myriad of options that will help a graduate get started.  Here are a few good options to consider.

list of gift ideas for the graduate |

  • Gift Cards to Restaurants– Food is a basic necessity of life, and never more appreciated than when you are newly out on your own.  A gift card is more personable than cash, but
  • Foldable Laundry Hamper– Fill it with some laundry detergent, Nellie’s Dryer Balls,and a roll of quarters to give your graduate no excuses for dirty clothes.
  • Stanley Tool Set– No matter if it is dorm or apartment-living, the graduate will likely need tools to hang things on the walls or measure space or open a battery door.  A tool set gives you the basic necessary tools for life on your own.
  • Memories Photo Album– This time of life is packed with experiences. Give the graduate a place to put the snapshots that will preserve these precious memories for years to come.
  • First Aid Kit – Prepare your graduate for the unexpected. A first aid kit is great to carry in the car or to store in the dorm.
  • Super Soft Fleece Blanket– Who wouldn’t want a cuddly, soft fleece blanket to snuggle up in? Better yet, check out the phone book for someone who could embroider the graduate’s name right on the blanket.
  • Amazon mp3 Gift Cards– Give the graduate the gift of new tunes.  An mp3 gift cards gives the freedom of choice and selection.  It is simple to use and Amazon has some great prices on music!
