My inbox has been flooded with graduation gift ideas. My parents gifted me furniture for my first apartment. I couldn’t think of anything better. Sometimes I wish I had opted for something a little fancier like a piece of jewelry, but not having to spend money the first week of moving into an expensive (for me at the time!) apartment was so worth it. I’d give the same advice to graduates and parents, opt for the practical. It is NOT as much fun, but it will help set you up for success in the future. I think all the time about how I hit the ground running saving money right from the start of my first foray into the real world and it’s kind of like the gift that keeps on giving.
But, I get that every family is different, so I’m rounding up a few things that I think would make fun and/or practical graduation gifts. As you’re looking at this, I’d definitely consider this more of a category thing. I’m including my favorite brands and items, but if a different price point would be better for you, of course, go with that.
What would you add to the list?
