After four years of exams, group projects, and the occasional all-nighter, the time has finally come for your graduate to walk across the stage and accept their diploma. Whether your student is college-bound or jumping into the “real world”, mark this important time in your grad’s life with a gift that shows them just how proud you are. Keep reading for a list of practical and fun gift ideas that celebrate this impressive accomplishment while helping your high school or college graduate transition more easily into the next phase of their lives.
1. Weekender Travel Bag, Vera Bradley
Nothing will make your grad want to pack up and take a trip home like an adorable travel bag. This one from Vera Bradley comes in dozens of fun colors and patterns with enough space and pockets to fit everything they need (plus all the extra things you’re bound to send back with them).
2. Planner and Stationary Set, Francesca’s
Every college student needs a good planner to help keep everything straight. From classes, to club meetings, to that new part-time job, help your grad keep life organized with a cute and convenient planner. Add in a fun stationary set that will be soooo helpful for all those Thank-Yous they’ll need to send out.
3. “You Did It” Mug, Francesca’s
Help your grad start their mug collection with an adorable mug that reminds them just how proud you are. Plus, you can fill the mug with some of their favorite goodies or with the ultimate graduation gift – a Legends Outlets gift card.
4. Card Holder, Tory Burch Outlet
You haven’t been to college if you haven’t lost your student ID at least once – right? Help your grad avoid the stress and hassle of getting a new ID by storing all their important cards safe and in one place with a cardholder from Tory Burch Outlet. Not only are they cute and convenient, but their high-quality material will make them last from freshman to senior year and beyond.
5. “Be Fearless” Wrist Strap, DEMDACO
Whether they’re moving away from home for the first time or jumping into the workforce, change can be scary. Remind them to face their fears every time they pick up their keys with a motivating wrist strap and keychain.
6. Compass Necklace, DEMDACO
A thoughtful necklace with this dainty compass pendant will encourage your new graduate to enjoy the post-grad journey and follow their heart. Plus, it is made with high-quality sterling silver, so they will be able to wear it for years to come.
7. Watches, Zales Outlet
As far as meaningful graduation gifts go, you can’t beat a great watch. It’s a nice metaphor for all the time and effort they’ve put in to reach this point, plus it’s unlikely they’re able to buy a high quality, timeless piece for themselves. Whether you’re looking to get them something straightforward and sensible to wear to their first real job or a true heirloom-quality investment they’ll own forever, Zales has the perfect watch for them.
8. Books, BAM
Learning how to be an adult can be an uphill battle. A cookbook full of fast and easy recipes will not only teach them how to prepare their own meals, it can also keep them out of that daily pizza delivery rut. Or, you can give them a more motivational read to help them tackle their next adventure. We suggest checking out Make Your Bed and The Power of Habit – they’re highly recommended for graduates!
With the help of Legends Outlets, celebrating your grad and commemorating all their accomplishments with a meaningful gift is easy. Let the celebrations begin!
