Whether you are new to Instagram or have been double-tapping food shots and sunsets for years now, there is no denying the popularity of the social media platform as a means to share everything.
So, if the graduate on your gift list is also on your IG feed, lucky you—you have a treasure trove of inspiration at your fingertips for finding just the right graduation present. If not, here are a few social share-worthy gift ideas for any high school or college graduate on your list:
Felt letter boards

You know those boards that restaurants use to display the soup and sandwich lunch special of the day? Turns out felt letter boards are also fun to have around the house or dorm room for inspirational quotes—and creating 100% Instagrammable moments.

How else will anyone know they’re off on a big adventure if they don’t share a pic on IG of their passport cover lying at a perfectly jaunty angle on their mid-packed suitcase? Not just for protecting those fragile passport pages anymore, passport covers come in a million designs—from maps to llamas to inspirational quotes—making them a thoughtful graduation gift for him or her.

For that carefree summer of fun between high school and college where every moment is sure to be shared on social media, give them an equally fun high school graduation gift. Like a giant pool floatie of a unicorn, a piece of pizza, or a gigantic flamingo that fits all their friends.

After college graduation, the adulting begins, which might mean the first foray into cooking. And since no one prepares a meal without sharing it on IG anymore, stock them up with a thoughtful college graduation gift of some best-selling cookbooks they’ll be excited to try. And hopefully share with you.
Notes of inspiration
You can like and share all the memes in the world, but nothing will ever replace a note of encouragement—right when it is needed most. And that’s what KindNotes is: a jar of 31 personalized inspirational notes in mini-envelopes that the graduate can open all at once or anytime they need a pick-me-up. KindNotes are a keepsake quality gift, available in a variety of themes, colors, and collections for him or her.
