As the school year comes to close, many families are making plans to celebrate their new graduates. If you have a graduating high school senior in your family this year, here are some great ideas for gifts for graduates that will help send them off to college with the things they need.
In today’s mobile world, everything has a battery that needs to be charged. A portable charger can help give them a boost when there isn’t an available outlet.
If your graduate is taking a car to college, they are going to need money for gas. Give them a gift card for their gas station of choice to help keep them fueled up.
If a car isn’t an option, a bicycle can be the next best thing. Not only will they get to class faster, it is easier and cheaper to park than a car.
A laptop is basically a necessity for modern students—it might even be the most important tool they have at their disposal. By getting your student a laptop that allows them to take notes, look up information, and, sure, enjoy YouTube in their free time, you’re enabling them to get the most out of their education.
A pair of quality headphones can help block out the noise of a loud dorm room while studying. These headphones are more affordable than they’ve ever been, and they come in a variety of styles to help your student stand out.
Encourage your student to do some real-life bonding with the gift of a board game or two. Fun games like Apples to Apples are a perfect way to spend a rainy day with a new roommate or study buddy.
Of course, there may be no greater gift for a college-bound teen than a new vehicle to help get them to class on time. If you’re on the market for a stylish new or used ride for your student, stop into DeVoe Buick GMC and peruse our selection.
