Whether graduating from high school and heading to college, or graduating from college and moving onto better things, this transition is a big deal for every young adult it takes hard work and patience to make it this far. Graduation gifts are just one small way of acknowledging such steady dedication while giving a little nod to the life changes that are sure to come.
Getting the Right Graduation Gift
Are you looking for a way to say “good job” to the hardworking student in your life? This guide will introduce you to three of the most popular ideas for the modern graduate.
1. A Day at the Spa
A day at the spa is perfection. After so many years of lugging around a backpack filled with books while running around campus, your graduate definitely deserves a little bit of pampering. Whether you choose to go with the basic massage therapy package or round it out with a pedicure and round through the sauna, the relaxation of a day at the spa stands in stark contrast to the stress and anxiety of the academic life.
Reserve spots for more than one person and let the graduate bring a friend. Whether she chooses a trusted friend or a beloved family member, she’ll have somebody with which to share her treasured high school or college memories.
2. Digital Gift Cards
Is a spa package a little too personal? Maybe your graduate is a little more laid-back. Gift cards are a traditional choice but going digital takes it to the next level today’s graduates are always on the move, and whether your gift recipient is moving out of state for college or moving abroad for a new career, a digital gift card will work anywhere. We suggest subscriptions to music and movie services but traditional pre-paid credit cards work too.
The neat thing about subscriptions to digital services is that the gift card recipient can share the good tunes, exciting movies, or favorite television shows with friends. Finding new ways to connect with new people is something that every new graduate will need to do no matter where life will take her.
3. An Electronics Protection Plan
Graduation is a step forward. With all forward momentum comes more responsibility. Today’s graduates depend on technology in a big way, especially when it comes to searching for summer jobs or staying in contact with family. When a cell phone or a laptop breaks, you can compare it to a flat tire it can cause tardiness, frustration, and money.
Extended warranties are a great way to provide a safety net to protect these big investments so that the promising graduate can seek repairs and regain connection to the modern world as soon as possible. Replacing an entire computer is not something the average graduate’s budget can handle.
These gifts aren’t just for young women though these gifts work for graduates of every gender and age. Who doesn’t like a day at the spa, after all? Who doesn’t like good music, or a working computer? Regardless, they’re great for the young, independent female graduate because each caters to the individuality of the recipient.
