Gift Ideas for Graduation


Whether you're buying for a high school or college graduate, Target has one-of-a-kind gift ideas you'll love. When it comes to high school graduation gifts, consider helping that college-bound grad decorate their dorm room. Bedding and lighting are awesome for bringing a personal touch to their new space. Wall art is another great way to help them make it their own. You can even help them remember this momentous occasion with a graduation picture frame. If you want to help them get acclimated to dorm life, don't forget about bathroom essentials. Try stocking a shower caddy with shampoo and body wash in their favorite scent, then pair it with towels in their favorite color. Speaking of water, consider getting water-resistant AirPods for the recent grad, so they can take their favorite music and podcasts to the classroom, the gym, the dorms and everywhere in between. Noise-canceling headphones are the perfect gift for the new college student who needs to focus. Looking for budget-friendly grad gifts? Help college students prepare for late-night study sessions with a perfectly comfy statement T-shirt, a cool journal for taking notes and a mug for their go-to caffeinated beverage. Or make sure they get to class the next morning with a wake-up call from a stylish alarm clock with a built-in Bluetooth speaker. Target also has graduation gift ideas for the new grown-up in your life. Send your favorite college grad into the real world with a thoughtful adulting gift, like a business card holder or an attractive laptop bag. Or you could give them a head start on furnishing that new post-grad apartment with must-have kitchen appliances, like an Instant Pot or coffee maker. These are essential items for on-the-go college graduates. Your favorite cookbooks also make great college graduation gifts, especially if the former student only knows how to make ramen. If you're in a rush, it's possible to find a last-minute gift that's also thoughtful. Any new grad would love a personalized gift, like a beautiful monogram necklace. Jewelry is a great gift that's sure to be cherished as a keepsake years after graduation. High-quality luggage is another great option that college grads are sure to get a lot of use out of. That sleek carry-on will be by their side as they venture out into the post-graduation world. Still stumped? It's okay, we all know someone who's difficult to shop for. Just remember, you can never go wrong with a gift card.
