Graduation Gift Ideas

Inquire Today

By Donna Mischke, Director of Family Services at Concierge Care Advisors

Graduation season is here and its time for those of us who have children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren to start thinking about what gift we will give our new graduate. This has been on my mind for a few months now as my son is about to graduate from college. I could not be prouder of him and want to get something special, something memorable, and that’s not always an easy gift to find. I have been doing my research and have come across a few items that might work and thought I would share what I have found.

Now we all have a budget and depending on what your relationship is with the graduate, may dictate how much you intend to spend. I have started with the less expensive gifts first.

Gift that are under $100:

Yeti mug- maybe monogrammed                                              Nice Laptop carrying case

Personalized note cards and thank you notes                      Garment Handheld Steamer

Polaroid pocket printer                                                                  New linens and towels

Monogrammed passport holder                                                Duffle bag or carryon luggage

Leather wallet possibly monogrammed                                  Wireless printer

T-shirt Quilt                                                                                        Car License Plate Frame

Diploma Frame                                                                                 Silk pillowcase

Jewelry with inscription                                                                 Gift cards and money

Ikea Frakta Bag                                                                                  Plush Robe


Gifts over $100

Personal safe                                                                                     Apple AirPod Pros

Noise-cancelling Headphones                                                    Weighted blanket

Toolbox                                                                                                Apple Watch or designer watch

Airline Tickets or a Trip                                                                   Cordless stick vacuum

Apple TV                                                                                              Air Fryer

Laptop                                                                                                  Meal subscriptions

IPad                                                                                                       Luggage set

High end jewelry                                                                              Gift cards or money

Apple AirTags                                                                                     Golf Clubs

I remember a few gifts from my graduations. A beautiful pearl necklace was the gift my parents blessed me with on my high school graduation. A very nice leather briefcase was given to me from my best friend and her mother for my college graduation. I still have both of those gifts. I can still remember getting them and the joy each gift brought. This is what I wish for my son. I want to give him something to remember and maybe something he will hold on to and look back many years from now and it will help him recall this special time in his life. I hope this list may help to spark some graduation gift ideas for others.
