graduation Gift Ideas

Alex and Ani 2017 Graduation Bangle

Alex and Ani is a favorite of any girl. This special one would be perfect for a graduation gift memory with the stamped graduation year.


Going Places Necklace

Going places necklace is a sweet message to give your graduate.  The card reads:

make a wish and put on your necklace. so many places, so many possibilities… you have the power to determine your direction. wear your necklace as a reminder that you’re headed for adventure, success and incredible experiences along the way!


Men’s Engraved Wood Watch

An engraved watch with a message they can take with them everywhere.


Lenovo Laptop

Having a high-performance laptop is a need for most graduates ready to go off to college. One that they will have for at least four years for all their classes and the fun papers that they will have to do! Make sure to get the Protection Plan!

Alexa Echo Dot

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. The Echo Dot is on any gift guide that I put together. It’s great for music, getting the news, adding things to a shopping list and/or to-do list.

Kindle eReader

The Kindle eReader is a great option for those who love to read. When your new college student has the time that is, anyway!

Amazon Gift Card

Who couldn’t use an Amazon gift card? Whether they need school books, food from Amazon Pantry or new books to add to their Kindle :).

College Cookbook

This would be great for those students who will have access to a kitchen to cook their meals and try to keep it relatively healthy!

    Our kids have already graduated high school. One has already graduated college and our youngest is due to graduate next year from college. These are great ideas even for a college grad, except maybe the college cookbook 🙂

  2. Tamara

    These are all so inspiring and gorgeous. My sisters and my mom all love Alex and Ani. I love how they have a bracelet for every occasion. That makes it a super special gift.
    The cookbook is awesome! Everyone needs a good one!

  3. Lisalisa

    These are some great graduation gift ideas! I just purchased an Alexa to give to my daughter when she graduates in two weeks.

  4. Censie Sawyer

    These are great gift ideas. Hard to believe we are talking about graduation already. This school year went so quickly. I think we have to attend 3 graduations this year.

    Great recommendations for grads! With the diversity in your picks, there’s a little something for everyone. At our house my husband would choose the Echo Dot while I’m all about cookbooks!

  6. Chasity L Boatman

    The Eco Dot would be a great gift for any grad. We love ours. It’s great for getting updates on the news and world events during breakfast.

  7. Melissa Dixon

    These are all great ideas and there are quite a few here that would be perfect for my neighbor’s daughter. She is finally graduating and it is an amazing time for her parents, we are excited to celebrate with them and will have to pick up some of these gifts!

  8. Tami

    These are great gift ideas for graduates. I have two graduating myself … one from high school and another for tech school. They both would love the echo and the laptop.

  9. Lori

    Great ideas! My daughter is graduating this year and everyone always asks us what she would like. Now I can show them!

  10. Louise

    These are all fantastic graduation gift ideas. I think my favourite is probably the inspirational necklace. I wouldn’t say no to any of them though!!

    I love all of these ideas for a graduation gift however, speaking for myself I’d love some travel vouchers!! I especially like the compass keychain!

  12. Echo

    I love these ideas! Especially the going places key-chain! That is such a sweet and unique idea. I also love personalized gifts. I think they mean so much more when there is thought behind them!
