Graduating from college is always an exciting time. You need to celebrate that occasion the right way. And you can by choosing the right gifts.
Don’t just think about buying a car or a deposit for a home. Think outside the box and give them something that you put thought into and something they’ll actually use.
Let’s take a look at six things you should gift your grad.
Secure their Tech Devices
Everyone knows that tech devices are used in abundance these days. But the threat to their security is higher than ever before. You need to make sure you have everything secured.
The best way to do that is to buy them a VPN. If you need to know how to install a VPN there are plenty of guides online for how to do this, and here is one guide to help you with that.
It may not be the sort of gift that they remember for the rest of their lives, but it’s a gift they’ll actually appreciate and want to use again and again.
Buy a Great Watch for the Transition into Adulthood
Watches are elegant, practical, and offer a sense of tradition. In the past, a watch was always designed to symbolize the transition into true adulthood.
Buy them a great watch that they’ll treasure. It doesn’t have to be something that’s encrusted with diamonds or something that’s made from solid gold. Make it elegant without being too flashy.
Look online when searching for a watch to buy. They don’t have to be as expensive as you think, and if you can take advantage of an Internet flash sale you’ll save a lot of money.
Purchase a Brand New Laptop
The chances are your grad has been using the same laptop for a few years now. It’s gone through a lot and after spending so much time dealing with dissertations and other essays they probably want to forget about ever tapping away on that keyboard again.
Buy a new laptop online and you’ll be getting them something useful and symbolic at the same time. Remember that their new laptop is a symbol of them moving onto a new phase of their lives.
If you can time it right, take advantage of the Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales to get discount laptops. You can even get laptops that have been out for less than a year during these sales.
There’s no need to spend four figures on a new laptop!
Consider a Professional Wardrobe
Now it’s time for your grad to enter the world of real work. So they need a professional wardrobe to go with that. Collaborate with your grad to buy them a nice business dress or an impressive suit they can wear to job interviews and other formal occasions.
Get it professionally tailored to really show your grad how much you appreciate their hard work and dedication.
Get a Business Card Holder
Even today business cards are the currency of the business world. At some point, they’ll have their own business cards or at least a mountain of business cards from the people they meet.
An elegant silver business card holder will help them to keep them pristine. Plus there’s nothing more professional than someone who has a business card holder.
Okay…Get the Car
A new car is a rite of passage for nearly every grad in the country. Get them out of that beat up rust bucket and into something they can be proud to drive to a firm.
That new car is so much more than a simple car. It’s a message that you’re sure that your grad has matured enough to be trusted with something that has to be protected and maintained.
Last Word – It’s All About the Message
We believe that practicality is the most important characteristic in purchasing a gift for your grad. Buy them things they can actually use and they’ll appreciate it far more.
And remember the symbolism of it all. You’re telling them that they’re now a fully-fledged adult who can be trusted. Say that with every gift you buy.
