2018 Meaningful Graduation Gift Ideas

We have two graduations this May. An 8th grade and a high school graduation. Both are exceptional kids and deserve the world. But they are both so different and finding the perfect but meaningful gift can be challenging. So while I searched the www, I’ve compiled a list of things that are popular amongst graduates these days.

Cell phones. It is a big deal at both elementary and high school levels. They either want A NEW PHONE or an upgraded one. Cell phone accessories such as wireless chargers as well. Either way this was almost the #1 item on the list.

Cash. This is especially true for high school and college grads. One because they want to spend it on the latest fashion, coffee dates or summer adventures. But mostly because they need it for college, transportation or to pay off debts.Image result for cash free png

Gift cards. Kids want to have the latest trends. With gift cards they can prepare for high school, college or careers with a new wardrobe, shoes, bags, etc.

Adventures. A lot of things I read mentioned travel. They would love to go on a trip with family or friends. They want to explore and see new things. So maybe gift cards to museums, season passes to water parks, gym memberships or plan a special family vacation for all.

Personalized gifts. This was not the most popular choice but there are those kids that really love something meaningful. Classic gifts that never go out of style. A Tiffany necklace for the girls or engraved watch for the boys. Something they can remember forever. But stay away from frames, rings, bracelets, and items that are seasonal or can be outgrown.

Wireless headphones or earbuds. Specifically Beats by Dr. Dre. In the world of social media, they need this!Image result for beats by dre free png

Whatever you do, ask the grads what they want. This way you will not waste time, money and nerves.

Congratulations to all 2018 graduates!
