As graduation day is quickly approaching, the air is filled with the excitement of starting a new chapter. Prepare yourself for the big day by finding just the right gift to celebrate your child’s accomplishments. Shopping for gifts for your spouse or gifts for parents may be a tad challenging, but we all know it – shopping for your kids is ten times more pressure. If you are in need of a little inspiration boost, check out the list we created of top-rated gift ideas for high school graduates.
1. Personalized Jewelry
If you are looking for a sentimental gift, but that also has some value to it, this is the one to choose. Whether we are talking about a classy silver bracelet or a chic pair of gold stud earrings, jewelry is always a good investment. Opt for a piece that can be easily engraved and have it personalized with your child’s name and graduation date. Besides being a stylish accessory they can wear for years to come, it will be something that will remind them of you once they’re off to college.
2. An Air FrYer
Starting college comes with a lot of exciting opportunities and new experiences, but also responsibilities. Your child will probably be busy studying, making friends, and discovering new places and they will spend less time thinking about what they are eating. If your graduate is about to start attending college out of town, it would be a good idea to gift them an air fryer. This way, you can make sure they eat healthy food with no hassle. Instead of spending loads of money on unhealthy take-outs, the air fryer will help them prepare a good variety of foods, quickly and easily and for much less money. Plus, it cuts down on how many dishes they’ll have to wash.
3. Sleep Mask With Bluetooth Headphones
If attending college out of town, your graduate is likely going to have to live with roommates. This will make maintaining healthy sleeping habits difficult – but, luckily, there is a solution for that. A sleep mask with built-in speakers is a great way of blocking out light and noise while listening to music, meditations, soothing sounds, or anything that helps them sleep. This is a very practical gift that your child will definitely love and use for a long time.
4. A Smart Backpack
Practical, modern, and useful, a smart backpack is a gift that can’t miss the mark. Besides being a great way to carry books, laptops, and other personal belongings, the smart versions of this classic piece include additional hardware or features that every young person needs. These backpacks come with anti-theft features, perfect for keeping belongings safe throughout the day, while the built-in smart features – like detachable USB cables – add plenty of conveniences. From so many options to choose from, just opt for the one that would best fit a new high school graduate’s needs.
5. A Tracker for Lost Items
Dorm life can be a bit chaotic and finding your valuables can sometimes be a challenge. So, make your new graduate’s life easier by gifting them a tracker for their most important belongings. They can attach the powerful tool to keys, backpacks, purses, or anything else they need to keep track of regularly. These devices are usually water-resistant and work with both Android and Apple devices, so no need to purchase extra gear to use with them.
