The Best Graduation Gifts


Whether your new grad is moving on to higher education or taking their first step toward an adult job, finding graduation gift ideas can be an arduous task. After all, graduation isn’t just a milestone, it’s the start of someone’s future. We know how hard it can be to find something that represents such a pivotal transition in life, so we’ve gathered some of the best gifts for college grads on the market right now to get you started. College graduates may think they know what they want, but a personalized gift is still better than just buying an Amazon gift card. Here are the best gifts for college graduates:

Fitbit Flex 2 Accessory Bangle

$55
Keeping track of your health is just an unfortunate reality of adulting, but that doesn't mean you have to sacrifice style while you do it. A quality fitness bracelet is a great gift for anyone looking to stay fit in a fast-paced world.

Cuyana Leather Laptop Sleeve

$125
A laptop without a sleeve is like phone without a case -- It's unprotected. If you're looking for quality, Italian leather is the way to go. You can even have it monogrammed to add that personal touch any grad will love.

Dom Perignon Vintage

$215
Graduation is a time for celebration, and what better way to celebrate a recent graduate than with a really nice bottle of champagne? Pop that cork, pour, and say a toast to the future!

Nix Digital Photo Frame

$80
Graduating is a big step toward the future, but it doesn't have to include forgetting the past. A digital photo frame is the perfect gift to ensure those family photos and memories stay preserved.

Fix It Kit Toolkit

$30
Just because they managed to graduate college doesn't mean they're prepared for everything life has to throw at them. A toolkit is one of those practical gifts that every grad needs but nobody thinks to get.

Amazon Echo

$100
When your recent grad is off to their grown-up job and out of the dorm, an Echo is a great gift to give. It's never too early to get that smart home started, especially if they’re no longer a student.

Brooklinen Classic Sheets

$200
A nice set of sheets may not be one of the flashiest graduation gifts to give, but it's something they'll end up appreciating every night. A good night's sleep is a gift any grad would be lucky to receive.

Sony WH-1000xM2 Headphones

$300
A high-quality pair of Bluetooth headphones isn't just a great gift for grads, it's a great gift in general. These noise cancelling headphones from Sony are worth every penny. They’ll be wishing they had a pair while they were still in school.

Trunk Club

$250
Recent college grads likely don’t have enough money to spend on new clothes, so giving the gift of a professional clothing service can be extremely beneficial. Finding that post-grad entry-level position is all about appearances.

Behmor Coffee Maker

$170
Coffee isn’t just essential for college students, it’s essential for any job. A coffee maker is one of the most practical graduation gifts you can buy, and they are incredibly convenient to use.

Away Suitcase

$275
If you're looking for college graduation gift ideas that say "oh the places you will go," luggage is an excellent choice. A suitcase or a carry-on bag from Away Travel is a great option for any new grad.

Sony Alpha a6000

$450
As we transition through life, we can't forget to capture the best moments. It never hurts to have a high-quality camera to take beautiful photos with.
