BEST COLLEGE GRAD GIFTS FOR HIM:
1. Really good home office chair
Whether he’ll be working from home or playing video games in his down time, every guy needs a really good office chair!
This is a really great idea of college graduation gifts for him from parents because it can totally double as a housewarming gift if he’s moving into a new apartment!
2. LogiTech sound system
Whether you’re looking for your son, brother, or boyfriend, add this to your list of potential college graduation gifts for him because any guy would love a good sound system to blast his favorite music.
Especially if he’s got an apartment (not living at home), help him get it off to a good start with a trusty sound system!
3. Dr. Squatch gift set
If you’re on a bit of a budget but still want good college graduation gift ideas, some simple hygiene products are the way to go!
My fiance swears by these Dr. Squatch products and I can attest to the fact that they smell and work great!
4. Nice toiletry bag
Let’s be honest:
Practical college grad gifts are really the best kind. Every guy could use a solid toiletry bag, whether it be for business trips, leisure trips, or just something to help him organize his stuff at home.
5. Classy watch
A classy watch is an absolute must-have for any young professional!
6. Timberland wallet
There’s one thing that every guy is looking for in a wallet: for it to be slim and lightweight.
These Timberland wallets are some of the best out there and great prices. I bought my fiance one for Christmas a couple years ago and it still looks brand new!
7. Apple Airtag
The guy always losing his stuff needs an Apple Airtag! The last thing he needs is to be late for his new job in the professional world because he can’t find his keys….
8. Echo Dot
Lots of young adults already have one of these, but if the guy you’re shopping for doesn’t, it’s a great college graduation gift for him.
9. Waffle maker
Waffle makers are both practical and fun.
Anybody would love a good waffle. So really, how can you go wrong with getting him a waffle maker?!
10. A book for life in his 20’s
A while ago, I published a post on the best books to read in your 20’s, and any of those books would be amazing options to give as a grad gift.
Unshakeable was on that list of books and it honestly is a great way for any young professional to start getting a handle on their finances, learn how to manage money, and ultimately, learn a bit about investing if they don’t already have a handle on that.
11. A journal
Journaling is such a rewarding habit, so you definitely can’t go wrong with gifting a journal at someone’s college graduation!
In fact, it might end up being one of the more sentimental graduation gifts in the end. I was gifted a journal at my high school graduation and it was so special to write in it, knowing that I was reflecting on a closing chapter as well as a new chapter opening in my life.
12. Champs suitcase set
Every young adult needs a good suitcase. If the guy you’re shopping for wants to travel or will be traveling for work, a nice luggage set is a must!
DELSEY suitcases have some of the highest reviews out there!
13. Fitbit Charge 4
A fitbit is really a great, fool-proof gift for anyone since it will help them stay on top of their health goals, monitor their sleep, or even just get insight into how healthy they are overall.
I got a fitbit for my birthday last year and it is seriously one of my favorite things I own!
14. Trench coat
For when he needs to stay warm, but also needs to look preppy!
15. Body measurement scale
Again with the health-related gifts!
With all that this scale measures, you’d think it would be more expensive, but it’s actually so affordable and probably one of the best college graduation gifts for him Amazon has to offer!
16. Weekender bag
Every guy needs a solid weekender bag, and this leather one is a great option that will last him a long time to come.
17. Flannel jacket
Flannel jackets last so long and they’re a pretty go-to piece for a lot of guys in the winter. So, if you’re shopping for someone who lives in a place where winter gets really cold, this is a great gift idea for him!
18. Bar cart
A bar cart is especially a great gift for any guy moving into his first real apartment (or who already lives in one). It’s a great piece for any apartment that gives some added luxury, is easy to decorate, and is great for hosting friends or dinner parties.
19. Beer chiller sticks
If the guy you’re shopping for loves his beer, these beer chiller sticks are a great option of what to get for him. He just has to stick it in his beer and it’ll keep the beer cold and chilled while he drinks it!
Another clothing essential that every guy could use more of!
Turtlenecks are super in right now, especially when it comes to business casual looks or just a go-to fall or winter wardrobe staple.
If the boy you’re shopping for will be dressing business-casual a lot, or if turtlenecks are just his style, this is a great gift option!
22. Leather messenger bag
Something more professional for a guy who’s entering a professional role 🙂
23. Ember mug
I’ve heard the best things about Ember mugs and they’re so loved by guys and girls alike. So, if the guy you’re shopping for loves his coffee and you’re still stuck on college graduation gifts for him, an Ember temperature control mug is your answer!
24. 3-way hair cutting mirror
A lot of guys prefer to cut their own hair in the comfort of their own home. If that’s the case for the graduate you know, this 3-way hanging mirror is the tool he needs to keep his cuts looking fresh and crisp all the time.
You just hang it over the door of the bathroom, unfold it, and he’s instantly able to see his entire head from all angles. This is on my fiance’s wish list!
25. Cologne sampler
When all else fails, you can’t go wrong with a good cologne sampler. He’s bound to like at least one scent he finds in it but he’ll most likely love them all, and then he’ll have tons of cologne to use!
