Money is always a safe bet when it comes to young adults. Transitioning into adulthood can cause stress, especially on your wallet. What better gift to give your future college student than to help them out financially?



If you want to give a more personalized gift, laptops are the way to go. They are essential to an everyday college student, because this generation relies heavily on technology. Most college professors have important information available online, so access to the internet is key.


A Celebratory Trip

One of the most thoughtful gifts you could give is a trip to the place of the graduate´s choosing. Since this can be pretty pricey, it is a good idea to collaborate with friends and family so you can all pitch in.


A Subscription Box

There are many different subscription services for everyone’s tastes and preferences. They send things like makeup and snacks, just to name a few.  It can be nice to receive something customized to you every month. Commonly known subscription boxes are ipsy, Birchbox, Glossybox, Blue Apron, and more!


Noise-Cancelling Headphones

It’s safe to assume that your high school graduate is going to be hitting the books in their college’s library, which will be full other students doing the same. This can result in a lot of commotion, but noise-cancelling headphones are a quick fix.


Gift Cards

Gift cards are always a safe bet when you don’t have a specific gift in mind. Not only do you not have to worry about purchasing an item that they might not use, but they also get the freedom of choosing their own gift. It’s a win-win!


The stress of buying the perfect gift can be overwhelming, so these are just a few that come to mind. The most important thing is spending time with your graduate, don’t forget that!
