If you live a busy life, you may have forgotten that seniors are about to graduate from high school and college very soon. Since it’s customary to give the graduating individual a gift, it may be smart to go ahead and plan in advance; however, if you’re like me, it may often slip your mind. Here are some great last minute graduation presents that your newly graduated friend or family member may enjoy.
Nikon Silver COOLPIX L27 Digital Camera Bundle- $69.99 Walmart
This is a present that your graduate will use for a long time. What better way for someone to remember their friends and good times than with pictures. This is the same camera I use for my photography and at 16 MP is an excellent deal for the amount paid. It’s easy to use, highly customizable, and comes with everything you need to get started. It includes the camera, stand, case, and memory card all included for one low price.
Gift Card- Any Applicable Store or Restaurant
If you’re out of ideas on what to buy maybe you should get them a gift card to their favorite store or restaurant. This way you can’t go wrong with what you choose and they can decide what and when to purchase at their discretion. I received many gift cards at my graduation party and was grateful to have the opportunity to eat and shop for free at so many places. Try to pick a store that offers a variety of things like Walmart, Target, or Dick’s Sporting Goods. Many people say that gift cards are impersonal but many people actually prefer picking out something for themselves instead of relying on others to know their style.
Black & Decker Brew-N-Go Coffee Maker and Travel Mug $14.19- Target
This is perfect for someone heading into the work world or off to college. This compact machine takes up very little space and perfectly makes one large mug of coffee at one time. It includes everything you need (except coffee) and has a permanent filter installed so you never have to worry about finding a paper filter when you’re ready to drink your coffee. I’ve had one of these machines for three years and have never had any problem with it whatsoever. I’ve found that that the coffee is always made perfectly and cleanup is a snap.
Viewsonic 8″ Digital Picture Frame $49.99 – Office Max
If your graduate loves pictures and keeps a collection, get them a digital picture frame to show off their pictures. The great thing about digital frames is that the picture can be set to change at different speeds and rotate through all of their pictures instead of only being able to see one. The Viewsonic frame has some amazing features such as light sensitivity, changeable rotation speeds, and the ability to add music in the background of the slideshow or a certain group of pictures. I’ve bought two of these as gifts and they work extremely well and the recipients have never been disappointed.
Any graduate will love any of these gift ideas. If you forgot that graduation was approaching, don’t fret, be the favorite of the gifters and try one of these awesome gifts.
