We’ve done our research, and these are some of the top graduation presents that are sure to let the grad know you are proud of them:
The best high school graduation gifts
Whether college or work is the next stop on their journey, these gifts are sure to be appreciated:
Custom pet portrait
Making his first house a home is important and even though his dog can’t go with him, you can have a custom print of his trusty companion made so they’ll be together in spirit.
Those walks to the showers can get chilly. Help her stay warm in a cozy plush robe in her favorite color.
Customized Map Pillow
If she is moving far away from a home, a thoughtful graduation gift for her is a reminder that love is all around her. A personalized pillow with a map of the United States allows you to place hearts on up to eight locations to represent the friends and family members that are rooting for her.
Plants make any living situation feel homey, but not everyone is gifted with a green thumb. So, succulents. They are sure to brighten up any space, while needing so very little in return.
The best college graduation gifts
College graduation is where adulting begins for some, and careers advance for others. Whatever the path, any graduate will be thrilled to open these gifts:
Work trips may become a thing now, or maybe just more visits home, so they might as well have some proper luggage. A sturdy carry-on with a personalized luggage tag is sure to be appreciated.
Something is going to need to get fixed eventually. Just a small tool kit that contains the basics will come in handy when they need to hang a picture or put a piece of furniture together.
If they don’t already know about thread count, they’re going to have to learn sometime. Set them off on the right foot with a set of luxurious sheets.
Hustle and inspiration are sometimes fueled by caffeine, so give them the gift of monthly coffee deliveries. They’ll think of you every time they get a new shipment.
