20 Interesting Gifts for New Graduates

Graduation season is in full swing, so odds are that you know someone who is about to make the transition from high school to college or from college to the real world (or even more schooling). Because we have some not so fond memories of receiving lots of oddly colored towels, stuffed animals, and expensive engraved pens back when we were on the receiving end of this transaction, we’ve decided to pull together a list of 20 totally affordable, and much more interesting gifts. Some of our suggestions might not necessarily be practical, but they’re definitely more memorable than a gift card.

“TRY TRY AGAIN” Banner, $50

It’s tough out there for a recent grad. This banner’s not only pretty, it also offers up positive reinforcement in a delightful font.
