5 Dazzling Graduation Gifts Students Will Adore
Grad season is here, and parents are scrambling to find fun graduation gifts that will be loved and appreciated by the students receiving them. Sound familiar?
It’s high school and college graduation time!
As a mom of a current college student and two college graduates, I am very familiar with the abundance of graduation party invites and announcements that arrive this time of year. I’m breaking tradition from my normal posts about helping students win college scholarships today to help out my fellow parents who are wondering,
WHAT KIND OF GRADUATION GIFTS SHOULD I GIVE?
A check in the amount of the year: For example, in 2023 the amount would be $20.23. Kids LOVE this idea and parents with a ton of parties to attend and gifts to give appreciate the simplicity, yet uniqueness, of this fun graduation gift. Take this a step further and tuck a twenty-dollar bill and 23 cents in change into a cute wristlet or snazzy wallet.

A gift card to the bookstore for the college the student will be attending: This was one of my middle son’s all-time favorite graduation gifts. Simply Google the name of the university along with “gift card” or “bookstore” and easy ordering directions will be found. (Another fun gift card idea is Uber or Lyft!)
University spirit wear: College students adore wearing shirts and hoodies representing their school, even before they start attending. Give your grad a jump start, and you will be the coolest parent at the party!
$$$$: Yes, money. Grads have needs and if you are unsure of what to send or just want a quick, no-brainer graduation gift, a check or cash is ALWAYS appreciated.
Dorm items for the student moving to college: Help out in a fun way by gifting your grad with helpful products they may not think about when packing to leave for college in the fall. Not sure what they already have or still need? Amazon gift cards work too!
