Can you believe it is nearly graduation time? Nothing is more exciting than ditching high school forever or knowing that your long college journey is finally to an end. Both events are giant milestones in life, and it isn’t shocking that all of us want to have help new graduates celebrate this huge event. The hardest part sometimes though is finding that perfect gift for our favorite new graduate. No one wants to get them something useless and even better if it may help them prepare for life. It can be even trickier since we don’t know where life can take them as they start their journey. Having gone through this recently with family and friends, we are excited to share with you eight of our favorite graduation gifts.

Rowenta Steam & Press Handheld Steamer
Did you think about ironing when you first moved into a dorm room or your first apartment? Most people don’t and are shocked when they have to look professional going doing field hours or showing. One thing that every professional demand are looking neat and clean, which includes ironing. Since no one has the room for a full iron and ironing board, the Rowenta Steam & Press Handheld Steamer is practical graduation gift. This little steamer doesn’t require an ironing board and steams just about anything on a hanger. You can find the Rowenta Steam & Press Handheld Steamer here.
KeySmart Pro with Tile
When life is busy, it is very easy to lose your keys or misplace them. This is one of the reasons that the KeySmart Pro with Tile is one of my favorite graduation gifts. Not only does it connect to your phone and make your keys ‘sing’ when they are lost, but also allows you to track via your phone where your keys were last located via a tracking map. Not only that, but it has a built-in flashlight and various tools available to make it the modern day pocketknife. Since everything (including your keys) fold into the unit, it is sleek and easy to carry, making it perfect for pockets or small purses. You can find the KeySmart Pro with Tile here.
Jabra Elite Active 45e
No matter what someone is doing after they graduate, they are going to be active doing something, be it exercise, going to class, working, or running errands. It is why I love the Jabra Elite Active 45e when it comes to a multi-use headset. This Bluetooth headset is a great graduation gift since it is designed for superior music quality, conference calls, working out, and even running errands since it connects to Alexa, Siri, or Google Assistant. As well, it is designed to fit anyone and stay in place with its memory wire neckband. Best of all, it has a battery life of up to 8 hours of constant use, making it one of the most convenient and cost-effective headsets on the market. You can find the Jabra Elite Active 45e here.
Keurig K-Mini Single Serve Coffee Maker
If you ask many college students and first-time apartment owners what their most loved kitchen gadgets are, it would be their coffee maker. With so many people being constantly on the go, the Keurig K-Mini Single Serve Coffee Maker is a must have graduation gift. Along with having all the features of your typical Keurig coffee maker, this inexpensive Keurig is also designed for travel mugs, making it perfect for anyone who is constantly on the go.

Danby Compact Refrigerator
Did you know most dorm rooms don’t come with a mini-fridge? It is so surprising since it is one of the most used things for college students. A mini fridge is a much-appreciated graduation gift for parents since it is one more item they don’t have to purchase for their child’s dorm. One of the most popular, cost-effective mini fridges on the market is the Danby Compact Refrigerator. This mini fridge is fairly small and holds everything a student would need for eating healthy and keeping food/drinks available in their room. You can find the Danby Compact Refrigerator here.

One of the best starter microwaves that are a perfect graduation gift is the Black + Decker Digital Microwave. This compact microwave has all the features you would expect on a full-size microwave along with the most commonly used pre-programmed buttons for foods and drinks.
