High School Graduation Gift Ideas

We've got multiple graduation parties on the calendar this summer. Finding a meaningful gift to give a high school student heading to college can be tough. While money of any amount is always welcome, here are a few other ideas to consider:


  • Games- Board games like Loaded Questions, Scattergories, Pictionary and Catch Phrase are great ice-breakers for meeting new people.  

  • Gift Cards- A few gift cards from restaurants near their college helps a student get comfortable in their new neighborhood. Also consider attraction tickets for nearby venues such as theaters, mini-golf or bowling.
  • College Spiritwear- A t-shirt, sweatshirt, sweat pants, shorts, pajamas or other college apparel will be worn regularly. 
Regardless of the gift, a heartfelt congratulations and best wishes are the best send-offs for a new grad.
