Summer is just around the corner, and that means it’s cap and gown time. College seniors are no doubt already gearing up mentally for that moment they finally receive their degrees . . . and get a much needed break from their studies. If you have a college graduate you’d like to honor and congratulate on this momentous occasion, then you need to give a great gift. Need some ideas? Here are five awesome gifts for the college graduate in your life:
College campus art. Visit the campus bookstore, or even the college website, to find an array of hang-able art pieces featuring your college graduate’s alma mater. College campus art is perfect for hanging right next to that college degree.
A desk set. Now that your college graduate has finished school, it is time to move into the real world . . . and that means getting serious about a career. Get your newly-degreed friend a desk set for a stylish head start on a personal work station. The great thing about desk sets is that you can get them in high-end custom finishes (like mahogany, for example), and can even get them engraved with the recipient’s initials.
Briefcase. You don’t have to go with the traditional, legal-style briefcase, either. These days, briefcases come in a variety of stylish options, and can even double as laptop bags, portfolio briefs, and more. Consider the type of work your college graduate plans on pursuing, and pick a briefcase design and style that is well-suited to the recipient’s goals.
A computer. If your college graduate does not yet have a computer – or has an unreliable one – then one of the best, most useful gifts you can give is a computer. College graduates who must begin job searching discover very quickly how invaluable a computer is; fortunately for you, computers don’t have to cost an arm and a leg, either.
Transportation. Of course, you don’t have to run out and buy a new car for your special college graduate. There are a number of ways you can contribute to a new graduate’s ability to get around town. Consider purchasing a gas card, a bus pass, or even a bicycle for that college graduate who has places to go and jobs to apply for.
As you can see, there are a lot of great gift ideas out there for any college graduate. Just keep your particular college graduate in mind when choosing the most appropriate gift. This list is a perfect place to find inspiration.
