7. Start With a Graduation Party!

Nothing quite shows your love, appreciation, and pride in someone quite like throwing a party in their honor!
The graduation ceremony itself might be long, formal, and stressful, but a grad party is a perfect environment to relax with friends and family and celebrate this achievement. 
Making this event truly memorable will help your grad absorb all the joy and pride of this momentous occasion in their life.
The decor will be the first big decision to make.
Rose gold is in this season, though it may be a touch more feminine than some grads are comfortable with. Therefore, we’ve opted to list one more fashion-forward grad decor idea set and another more generic one as an alternative.
This solid latex balloon set with these matching plastic cups and these glittery wall hangs would make a perfect high-class party atmosphere.

6. Coffee Maker For All-Nighters

Trust us on this one, having a coffee maker in their dorm room or apartment will make your student’s study group very, very happy around finals week.

Also, as tempting as the Starbucks on campus might be, having their own coffee maker will save them time in the mornings. Not to mention waking up to the enticing smell of fresh-brewed coffee will ease them into the life of early morning classes and cross-campus commutes.

Is your grad not going to college? Not everyone needs higher ed to start their career, but most people do need coffee.

The Ninja® Coffee Brewer makes for a great gift. It is a 12-cup programmable coffee maker with custom brew strengths including Classic and Rich settings.

The warming plate can keep coffee fresh for up to four hours, or you can use the mid-brew pause option to pour yourself a cup while it’s still brewing. It also offers a small-batch function and a permanent coffee filter. It even has a sleek finish that looks like it might be stainless steel.

5. Stainless Steel Mini Fridge

The most ubiquitous grad gift of all: the mini-fridge. If there’s a registry for your grad’s party I would definitely check that before buying this much-coveted mini appliance.

That being said, if nobody else is already on board the minifridge train, this is a gift that is sure to see a lot of mileage.

You can’t go wrong with the Concord-20LDX Compact Thermoelectric Cooler And Warmer Mini Fridge

This is an enormously versatile piece of kitchen equipment. It offers sleek customized temperature control for , “essentials from food and drinks to insulin and breast milk at your desired temperature.”

The outer dimensions are 13.75″ W x 11.25″ L x 16.25″ H which is small enough to fit in a cramped dorm room (or office) but with a 20 liter capacity, it is still large enough to be useful regularly.

It also has an efficient tight-fitting, magnetic seal on the door and can easily switch from cooling to warming mode.

At its coolest point, it maintains a temperature of 35 F and it warms up to a maximum of 149 F.

4. Printer
A printer is always handy to have around. Even if your grad is going to a college that covers some of their print costs, library printers can break or have lines, or simply be closed or too far away at the time your student needs to print (like ten minutes before class, for example).
For those high school grads who are not planning to go to college, this is a great tool for printing out resumes and working from home.
You want to get them a device that they will be able to reliably use for years to come, but without the exorbitant cartridge costs that all printer users love to hate.
The Epson – EcoTank ET-3710 Wireless All-In-One Inkjet Printer delivers where cartridge printers fail.

The color resolution can be set up to 4800 x 1200 dpi and the ink tanks are separated individually into three vivid dye-based color tanks and one black tank.

The tray has a capacity to fit 150 regular sheets of paper and this model offers built-in duplex printing to save on paper costs by printing both front and back of the pages.

1. An Emergency Tool for Adventures
Is your high school grad taking a gap year to rid trip across America and find themselves as many free spirits have done before?
In that case, the best way to show your care and support might be to gift them with this amazing emergency preparedness tool to make sure they get home okay.

It can fill a tire in about 5-6 minutes, from 0 to 35 psi. This tool is enough for anyone to check out a tire problem on the roadside and hopefully fill up the air enough to get to the nearest garage or home.
