Graduation is upon us and it is that time of year where we must decide what to get our fellow graduate finishing off school. Gifts could be a range of things, items they might need when going off to University or entering the work life. I have provided a general list of grad gift ideas to get him.
Here are 17 gift ideas for him for graduation! Whether it’s high school or University, these grad gifts work for all ages and are not just for males! Prices vary from $50 to $300.
- Bomber Jacket
- A watch
- Winter Jacket
- Ice-cream maker
- Air Fryer
- Leather Belt
- Work Bag
- Beat Pill Speakers
A great place to search for a good quality leather wallet is The Bay if you’re in Canada. They have affordable wallets that are leather, perfect for a grad gift. If you want to be on the more expensive route than I like shopping at Burberry. Their style is simple and classic, which is how you would describe my graduate.
Like any male, shoes – sneakers to be exact are the way to go. Any type of shoe they want. The GOAT app has lots of options for you to choose from.
Every new graduate needs a new pair of sunglasses to last them a life time because they are going to be too poor to buy them themselves. Ray-Bans are my go to for quality sunglasses. You can find simple styles that fit all face shapes.
Clothing is a great gift for a graduate. Purchase from their favourite brands and gift them their own sweater so they can wear at school or whenever. Superdry offers great quality sweaters for men.
A bomber jacket is a jacket that every male needs. You can style it up or down it doesn’t matter. It’s very versatile. Again Superdry has good quality jackets that are simple and I love.
Now this gift is specifically for high school graduates who are going away for University/ college. Luggage set is probably the most bulky and expensive gift for graduates. But would be helpful when moving. Check out The Bay for a bunch of luggage sets.
Baseball hats, buckets hats whatever you think would look good on them. Any athletic brand has great baseball hats. Or get them a hat of their favourite team.
8. A Watch
A wristwatch is a great gift for graduates. It makes them look older, more mature, professional in their new career. A good quality watch will last them a really long time. Daniel Wellington is a go to watch brand I love because they have quality leather wristband watches. The Bay has an array of selection click here to see.
Apple AirPods are a good gift because high school graduates will be doing a lot of walking around campus. University/ college graduates will appreciate AirPods when walking too and from work depending on where you work. In New York they are an essential when walking home.
Apple’s AppleWatches provide all you need on your wrist. It is great for on the go.
11. Winter Jacket
My gift idea for a person I know graduating was a winter jacket, so when they walk through campus during the colder months they have a good warm jacket to keep them warm. As a fellow Canadian, I support my Canadian brands, so Canadian Goose is a good brand to shop winter coats/ jackets. It is pricy but it is an essential when entering University and you know it is going to be cold during winter.
Start their University/ college life fresh with a new backpack. Having a backpack is essential when starting University. You’re gonna have to carry your heavy textbook, laptop and a bunch of other crap. You don’t want to walk all the way to your building that holds you class and realize you forgot something in you dorm, then you have to walk all the way back to the dorm, therefore, making you late for class.
13. Ice-cream Maker
Any kitchen appliance is great for graduates who are moving into their own space away from mom and dad. They basically need all kitchen stuff such as plates, bowls, etc. But besides the basics, an ice-cream maker is a fun one to have, especially if they are living with roommates. I saw on Tik Tok, this ice-cream maker on Amazon was a popular one because you can blend any frozen fruit into a sorbet or ice-cream.
14. Air Fryer
A popular kitchen appliance is an air fryer. This is such a trend right now. I see everyone have one and its quick and easy to use. This is perfect for on the go. Especially if you need instant meals when your busying with your new job or classes.
15. Leather Belt
Make their outfit more professional with a designer or just leather belt from anywhere. The Bay, again, holds so many options. But if you want designer than I liked the Ralph Lauren one, here.
16. Work Bag
Don’t want a backpack or want a more professional look than a leather work bag would be the perfect gift.
17. Beats Pill Speakers
This is not an essential but can be fun to use for entertainment. This is something that I would have wanted in University to listen to music when I was outside on campus.
