It is officially graduation season! That means caps, gowns, diplomas, BBQs, and lots of proud family and friends. That also means it is the season of gifting those grads with something to congratulate them on all of their hard work, and often help prepare them for the next steps they take. I am going to be shopping for a graduate in my family, and I couldn’t be happier. My younger sister is graduating from high school, and heading to my alma mater for college! Now I’ve got to figure out what the perfect gift for the grad in my life is, and hopefully I can help you too!
One gift idea that I have been pondering is a new pair of headphones. My sister is always listening to music, watching videos, or video chatting with her friends, so I know she would put them to good use! There are a lot of great options to choose from to suit the needs of the grad in your life. I think I have my choices narrowed down to Powerbeats Pro, or AirPods. They will give her the freedom to workout, lock in when she needs to, and won’t mess up her hair!
Maybe you are shopping for a gamer who is looking for something they can take on the go, as well as enjoy at home! The Nintendo Switch is an awesome mix of portability and playability. It allows you to play anywhere and everywhere you can take the handheld device with you. It also has a bunch of Nintendo exclusive titles, and other big names to choose from to take your play to the next level. Once you are home for the day, you can hook straight up to your TV and play on the big screen.
Speaking of TVs, I know I couldn’t have lived without mine when I was in college. I always liked having a way to escape into a show or a movie, and a TV made it a lot easier to do with friends. It also allowed me to host countless games of NBA 2K, Mortal Kombat, and a bunch of others. Another way my TV came in handy was when I needed to connect my laptop to it to visualize something on a much bigger scale.
One more thing that I really enjoyed having while I was in school was a Keurig coffee machine. This is ideal for home, dorm, apartment, or anywhere else you can enjoy a cup of coffee or tea. It was super convenient to be able to have coffee at the push of a button. With a wide variety of coffee, espresso, and tea options, you’ll be sure to find the flavor that fits your morning, afternoon, or night!
Finally, you can simply let them choose what they want! You can’t go wrong with a gift card. A Best Buy gift card would be the obvious best bet, but we also offer specialty gift cards to keep the grads fed, entertained, and all-around taken care of. You can get them a Chipotle gift card to keep them full, a Starbucks gift card to keep them awake, a Netflix gift card to keep them entertained, or a Spotify gift card to make sure they can access their favorite playlist whenever they need it. No matter the grad, Best Buy can help you get them a gift that says “Congratulations”!
