College graduates can be hard to buy for. They just spent several years of their life gaining an invaluable education; what more do they need? They actually need a lot of stuff. They spent a lot of time and money at school, and there are plenty of gift ideas to show that you are proud of them.
After all that hard work in college, they are going to need a drink! During 2015 alone, American consumers ages 21 and up consumed 27.5 gallons of beer and cider per person. So chances are your graduate will appreciate some beer gifts. Beer gifts can be anything from insulated beer growlers to custom bottle openers. You can also gift them with a beer making kit so they can have a taste of a brew they made all on their own. Of course, you can also just get them a case of their favorite beer to celebrate the occasion.
Now that they are out of college, they are going to start interviewing. Not everyone has the perfect interview outfit, and this is a great way to help out that college graduate in your life. The perfect tie or pearl necklace can be just the touch they need to feel great on their way to an interview. Shoes never hurt either.
First home/apartment stuff
Graduating from college means moving out of the dorms or mom and dad’s house. For their new, grown-up space, they are going to need a lot. They probably don’t want to take all of their childhood stuff with them. Any home accessories, small furniture items, or even cookbooks will be appreciated by your new college grad.
A lot of college grads like to travel after being stuck at their university for several years. Going abroad is a very popular activity for those just getting out of college. Backpacks, guidebooks, a check to cover passport fees, a new suitcase, or even whimsical luggage tags can be the perfect gift for a college graduate.
College graduates have accomplished something huge, and they deserve to be celebrated for it. No matter what you get them, they will appreciate the thought and support from their loved ones.
