Graduation Gift Guide for Him

Author Your Holiday Inspiration Guru | May 13, 2020

We all remember the feeling after graduating when it starts to sink in that we're in the "real world." While many exciting things are ahead, many graduates will soon face new expenses and big decisions in the coming months. Some will be starting college in the fall, attending a trade school, joining the service, or heading straight into the workforce. 

Featured Graduation Lunch & Dinner Recipe IdeasRegardless of his plans, your generous and thoughtful contribution will make a great impact on his life after graduation. Here are a few of our favorite graduation gift ideas for him! 

Gift Cards 

You'll never go wrong with a gift card! The versatility of gift cards is what makes them such a fool-proof gift. You can buy one for practical use or something fun to treat himself at one of his favorite retailers or restaurants. For college students, a Visa or Amazon gift card can go towards school supplies and textbooks he'll need during his first semester. 

Grilling Set 

A grilling set is a perfect gift for any outdoorsman! If he's moving into a new place, he'll appreciate his new grilling tools as he realizes how long it can take to collect new appliances. Pick up a few good cuts of meat from our butcher, a couple of bottles of bbq sauce, and some tools from our appliance section. He'll be thrilled to have an excuse to invite some friends over and enjoy a backyard bbq with his new grilling set!

Snack Pack 

A personalized snack pack is a great option that can be customized to fit your budget and the taste of your recipient. Choose a bag, basket, or container and fill with his favorite snacks, candy, drinks, and more. You can even select a theme or color and fill your snack pack with goodies that fit in this theme. 

Dorm Room Essentials 

Sometimes it's the practical gifts that are the favorites among graduates. Gifting him with supplies that will help his transition to dorm life will be one of the most useful things he'll receive. Put together a shower caddy full of toiletries, a bag full of late-night study snacks, or a set of little kitchen gadgets that may prove handy. 

An Encouraging Card 

A simple greeting card can mean so much to someone entering this new phase of life. Share a piece of advice that you wish you had heard when you were his age or one of your favorite memories together. This is something he can keep forever!
