Let’s face it, we always picture our young ones graduating.
From the first day you held them in your arms, you already envisioned them tossing the tassel in the air and saw yourself jumping for joy that your baby was going to become someone in life.
Did I just scare you? I hope not- well, maybe a little. Were you just transported to your own young adult self-journey!? Scary? I know! While I can’t promise that your young adult will have a smooth transition into adulthood, I do have some suggestions that will help them to aspire to be the best version of themselves that they can be.
Help your new graduate become an adult with a tool that has become essential in almost everyone’s lives. From writing a formal resume to creating a virtual vision board, you can never go wrong with updating their current technology to something like this HP - ENVY x360 2-in-1 15.6" Touch-Screen Laptop. A convertible 2-in-1 laptop, is ideal for the graduate that would like the versatility of 4 modes, including laptop, tablet, stand and tent. Additional features include, but are not limited to:
- Natural finger-touch navigation makes the most of Windows 10.
- 1920 x 1080 resolution boasts impressive color and clarity.
- IPS technology for wide viewing angles.
- Energy-efficient LED backlight.
- 6th Gen Intel® Core™ i5-6200U mobile processor.
- 8GB system memory for advanced multitasking.
- 1TB hard drive for ample file storage space.

To help your graduate catch up on their favorite programming, consider this Roku Streaming Stick. The Roku Streaming Stick delivers fast performance with a quad-core processor and dual-band wireless. It has 8x more processing power than before. Your graduate will enjoy HD programming with more than 2,500 channels on demand and more than 300,000 movies and TV episodes available. Control the Roku Streaming Stick with the included remote or with your smartphone via the Roku Mobile App. Unbiased search across top channels shows you where content is free or cheapest to watch, for your graduate on a budget. And because Roku Streaming Stick is portable, you can stream to different HDTVs in your home, dorm, or hotel room.
Maybe your graduate is finally moving out or never really invested in cleaning supplies. If so, nothing says “Welcome to Adulthood” like a vacuum! Adulthood can be expensive, so I was always grateful for the friends and family that helped me get started with some much needed small appliances. This Hoover Air Bagless Cordless 2-in 1 Handheld/Stick Vacuum, contains WindTunnel 2 technology that cleans both surfaces and embedded dirt. Your graduate will no longer battle with “I can’t reach that area,” as the 2-in-1 vacuum combines the versatility of a hand vacuum and the power of a stick vacuum. The best part is that it has a LithiumLife battery which provides a convenient cordless design. They might not be as excited about the multi-surface cleaning as you and I, but this Hoover vacuum is confident your graduate will be able to easily switch between carpets and hard floors with a press of a button.
