From a tablet to an eReader, these four electronic picks for a last-minute graduation gifts shall fit any pocketbook.
Proscan 7″ Tablet (Walmart) $59.99
Rather than spending $200+ on a laptop, why not go for a tablet? This small computer-like device can save you more than $100 and can be used like a laptop. This particular tablet sold on Walmart’s web site comes with case and keyboard which saves you even more money. If your student is going to college and needs to print papers they need to turn in, no need to buy a wireless printer. They can do their work in Google Drive and print from the library computer.
We hadn’t thought of this when our daughter graduated high school and was getting her setup for starting college just a few weeks later. Years later, we now have two of them and an eReader.
An eReader would be great for those who love to read. The thin , sleek designs of an eReader allows the reader in your life to take a whole library with them anywhere. I have a Kindle eReader and love it. I can take it anywhere to read some of my favorites and read new finds without lugging a big bag of books around.
I also have the Kindle app downloaded to my desktop. You can also download it to a laptop as well. If your graduate has iTunes, they can also download books to that. An iTunes gift card geared towards books would also be a nice gift. They can also use it on their iPad and iPhone for reading on the go.
iKross Black Mini Bluetooth Handsfree Headset (Amazon) $12.99
Want to keep your kids safe while driving when you know they could be using their cell phone? How about this mini bluetooth hands-free headset from iKross? For less than a ticket, you can get this piece of technology to keep your child safe. While you’re at it, order one for yourself as well.
It can be used with iPhones, HTC, Samsung galaxy noto, LG, Motorola, Blackberry, and Palm cell phones. Now you graduate won’t have the issue of talking on the phone while driving.
Pre-Paid Cell Phone
A pre-paid cell phone is another gift for any graduate. The different styles and price points can help them budget their talk and text time. This is what I’ve done for a graduation gift for out daughter. One thing you want to do when choosing a phone for a pre-paid plan is to check how often they need to replenish their talk time with each card. Also, check to make sure the choice of time isn’t lost if it isn’t used each month. Another thing to look at is phone upgrades and when and how often those can be done. They don’t always need the most expensive phone to get started with.
