The Ultimate Grad Gift Guide

Your soon-to-be grad has worked hard to reach this momentous occasion and to have their diploma in hand. Celebrate and show them how proud you are of their hard work and dedication with these low-cost and fun gifts!

ID lanyard. Make it easy for your grad to carry their ID and wallet around campus or the workplace. Convenient and durable, these lanyards make the perfect graduation gift. 

College survival kit. Hit the dollar store and scour the aisles for a big basket and items you can add to it for making a college survival kit or house/apartment warming kit. You can include essentials, like flip flops and hair ties, kitchen utensils and hand soap.

“Open when” letters. Your recent grad’s got a long road ahead of them, but you can make it a little easier with a few well-worded letters. Pen some letters for your grad to open at specific milestones and/or at more challenging times, such as after the first round of final exams, when they are feeling homesick, when they need a laugh, after handing in their first term paper, etc. Your letters will be the gift that keeps on giving throughout their time in college.

Picture collage. Help your grad have the best decorated room in college with a fantastic homemade picture collage! Check out their social media pages for the best snapshots of your grad and their friends and family. Then, put together a low-cost, meaningful gift they will always treasure. As a plus, they will think of you every time they see the collage hanging on their dorm room wall.

Laundry essentials. Spring for a rolling laundry hamper and fill it with all your grad needs to master the wash. Think detergent, dryer sheets, stain remover and more. You could also add a note, like “Have LOADS of fun in college!” to complete the gift.
