You don't need a master's degree in gift-giving to find the perfect graduation gift for your 2023 graduate! Evite's graduation gift guide offers the best graduation gift ideas for high school graduates and college or university graduates ready to start the next chapter in their lives. Whether you're celebrating the accomplishments of your daughter, son, granddaughter, grandson, boyfriend, girlfriend, spouse or parent, there's a graduation gift here from Amazon, Etsy or Target that they'll love.
What are the most popular grad presents? eGift cards, on-trend accessories, tech gifts, self-care gifts, kitchen gadgets and gifts for their next home, be it dorm or apartment. But the very best gifts for grads are the ones that speak to their unique interests. Grads really want useful gifts or gifts with meaning to them, so think about what they love and need when you're choosing something special for them.
Tech and gadget gifts are always popular among grads, both for school and recreation. Functional good-quality tablets, laptops and headphones are necessary for class and work, while camera accessories, colorful lamps and LED decor keep things fun when they're resting and relaxing.
Travel-related items are some of the most-wanted gifts right now for the Class of 2023. A high-quality luggage set can be used for Spring Break, summer vacations and many years of travel in general.
If they're leaving the nest to experience dorm life or to get an apartment of their own, kitchen appliances, cookware and decor are must-haves for their new residence.
Sentimental and keepsake gifts are a meaningful way to show your graduate how proud you are of them. If they're fond of writing, a sleek notebook is a wonderfully thoughtful gift, while a box of preserved roses will earn a place of pride in their new home.
Prepping for college and starting a new job is stressful. Help your graduate out by giving them the gift of self-care! A therapy lamp is useful for students living in a dorm where natural light isn't available (or for adjusting to shorter days in the fall), and a jade roller is a simple way to make skincare a part of their daily routine.
Need a great gift under $25? Under $50? Under $100? Tuition, books and care packages add up, but you can still surprise your grad with the perfect present and stick to your budget with ease. You can find graduation gifts for her, graduation gifts for him, graduation gifts for anyone—all the right price for you.
Is your grad hard to shop for? Or are you really busy and short on time? Or maybe you need a graduation gift at the last minute. Whatever the case is, an eGift Card is the answer! Evite offers eGift Cards to spend at Amazon, Target, Walmart and Etsy. All you need is their email to send one instantly from here—you can choose exactly the amount you want to give. Don’t worry, our eGift Cards do not expire. Your grad can use it anytime at their convenience.
Don’t forget to include a greeting card with your graduation gift! Evite offers a selection of unique cards to express yourself, from warm and touching to funny and lighthearted. You can even make it extra personal by uploading your own design and customizing it!
Congratulations! You're now ready to celebrate your graduate's success. Of course, a graduation party is another great way to honor their academic achievements! Evite offers free and Premium graduation invitation templates so you can throw an A+ party for your graduate's friends and family.
