I know a lot of you have kids, friends and other family members who have recently graduated. And perhaps you haven’t gotten grad gifts for your favorite grads yet. My daughter will be graduating in a couple years herself and then she will probably be moving out on her own shortly after. So, here is a checklist of items that your favorite grad might need for their own place. How exciting!

25 Great Grad Gifts

  • Stone Bake Pizza Oven – Forget my favorite grad. I want one of these for myself, lol.
  • Amazon Fire TV – I haven’t been able to forget this since seeing all the ads on TV. I really would love to check the Amazon Fire TV out.
  • Ninja Blender – Amber loves to whip up cakes and other tasty concoctions so I think this would be one of the best grad gifts for her…
  • 4-Slice Toaster Oven – …on the other hand, she really loves toasted bread and bagels.
  • Beats by Dr. Dre Pill Portable Stereo Speaker – What young adult doesn’t listen to music?
  • Samsung 32โ€ Class LED 1080p Smart HDTV – I think this would make a great gift for almost anyone.
  • Sony Smart Wi-Fi Built-In Blu-ray Player – We have a wi-fi blu-ray player and love it. This is definitely one of the top grad gifts, in my opinion.
  • Game of Thrones Season 3 Blu-ray & DVD – I have a family member who loves this show, and the books. So, when she graduates college, this would definitely be a good idea for her.
  • LG Microwave + Pizza Oven – I can’t name a single young adult who can’t find something they love in the microwave. Not a single one.
  • Frigidaire 3.1 Cu. Ft. Compact Refrigerator – This would be awesome to store drinks in.
  • iTunes Gift Card $50 – Everyone loves music, so this would be one of the grad gifts that I would choose if I was unsure of what to buy. It seems like a safe choice that would please lots of people.
  • Xbox One Console – Is your favorite grad a gamer. Then check this out!
  • Xbox One Titanfall
  • Keurig Elite Single-Serve Brewer – I am sorry, but I just can’t make it without coffee. Neither can my {almost} grad. End of story.
  • Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 – 16GB Tablet – Admittedly, I don’t know much about tablets, but my daughter does. I bet your grad does, too. Listed below are a few more tablets to choose from, as well.
  • Zaggkeys Folio Keyboard Case
  • Asus Transformer T100 32GB Tablet
  • Lenovo IdeaTab A1000 16GB Tablet
  • HP Slate 7 Plus 7 Tablet
  • HP Envy Wireless e-All-in-One Printer – I am all about a new printer. Though the one I own is nice, it just doesn’t do everything that it needs to.
  • Tech21 Shell Case for Samsung Galaxy S5 Cell Phones – No one wants to drop their phone and break it.
  • mophie Juice Pack Powerstation Mini – This can keep your electronic devices charges on the go. Trust me. These are unbelievably handy devices.
  • Hoover WindTunnel 2 Vacuum – Amber has a cat, so when she moves she will definitely be able to get the most out of this.
  • Hamilton Beach Set & Forget Stay or Go Slow Cooker – We can’t make it in this house without a slow cooker. Slow Cookers just make life easier.
  • Thule Crossover Backpack – You know your grad has to carry a lot of stuff. This can help with that.

  1. My Granddaughter graduated this year but we just gave her a check. So hard to know what the kids need so your list is a great idea.

    • Dawn McAlexander says:

      Congratulations to your granddaughter! And yes, it can definitely be hard to decide what to get for others.

  2. I do a lot of my shopping at Best Buy. They definitely have a lot of great gift ideas!

  3. This list is perfect for me!
    But I can also see the value for recent grads. I stopped in my tracks with the pizza oven too

  4. Fun and unusual ideas for graduation. Thanks for sharing!

  5. Jennifer Williams says:

    I do not have a graduate this year but will next year. I want many of the items on that list – my oldest son will as well. My Nunja is my most used appliance.

  6. Some of these gifts would be great four our family even though my kids are not at graduating age yet,I myself could enjoy some of those gifts.

  7. Okay, these are some great gift ideas! I couldn’t believe we had no grads in our lives this year…last year we had 10, I think! (With that many, I did Visa cards for all of them LOL)

    • Dawn McAlexander says:

      10 in one year! Wow! That is a lot! I am glad that they all graduated. though. ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. These are all great ideas! Another good one that is relatively cheap is a “starting out basket”- buy a laundry basket, fill it with lots of random things college kids will need- soap, detergent, hangers, tide pens, maybe some gift cards, notebooks, etc!

  9. Don Purdum says:

    My son graduated high school a few weeks ago. We wanted to get him something he would remember and keep the rest of his life. He wanted to start collecting train sets as he loves trains. So, we got him his first train set.

  10. Those are some great ideas for grad gifts. I would have loved to received a number of those items when I had graduated.

  11. That is a great list of goodies for the new grad. They totally deserve something great

  12. My daughter got a Ninja blender at her bridal shower and she loves it! It would definitely make a great grad gift.

  13. this is an awesome list of gifts will have to keep this in mind for next year when nephew graduates.

  14. I like the idea of the pizza oven for a grad. I like the idea of a pizza oven for me too. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  15. What some great gifts – I would love to shop Best Buy one day I have to admit ๐Ÿ™‚ x

  16. This is such an exciting time of the year with all the graduations. It is important to find just the right gift for every graduate.

  17. This is a very good list. It looks like you took time and researched everything they have to offer, thanks for sharing and being so diligent helping others find great gifts

  18. I don’t know anyone graduating this year but I will say Best Buy is one of our favorite places to shop. They have so many great gift ideas. A grad would love anything on this list.

  19. Ralff Dizon says:

    This is a great ideas. I promise my nephew to give him a grad gift, and this list would help. Thanks for this informative post.

  20. When I Was a grad, I was happy with a laptop and a microwave! Times have changed

  21. Those are all great choices for the recent graduate! I need to get my cousin’s daughter something for her high school grad present.

  22. Those are some great picks. My daughter is on her way to college but she isn’t into electronics. Hubby on the other hand would enjoy a few of these.

  23. Any grad or dad would be like a kid in a candy store with just a gift card to Best Buy!

  24. My son is graduating and I am sure he would like many items from this list. Thanks for sharing such great ideas.

  25. Those portable chargers are the best thing to have! I don’t know what I would do without mine!

  26. This is a great list! My cousin just graduated and she’s flying out for a few weeks.

  27. I’m not graduating and I know I would love some of these gifts. HAHA

  28. Great grad gifts. When my kids were in college we loved giving them tech gifts from Best Buy. Something they can use for years down the road.

  29. This is a great list! I have to admit my go to grad gift is usually cash but it would be nice if the gift I gave made them think of me.

  30. There’s lots of great gift ideas for grads. It’s nice that Best Buy has so many things from tech to room decor.

  31. Ashlyn B. says:

    I graduate college in the spring and I have to admit, a few of these things could be a nice addition to a new apartment! I have a Kitchenaid mixer on my wish list though. ๐Ÿ™‚
