7. Start With a Graduation Party!
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

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