Gift Ideas for Graduates

Graduate taking a selfie

You adjust your cap and gown and walk up to get that diploma while the crowd roars. You open the folder and... It's a letter from your wireless carrier. You went over your data cap. You have to pay A BIG FEE. Then, suddenly, you wake up from the nightmare.

Graduation season isn't about wireless nightmares but truly stepping into your independence while celebrating your hard work and whatever comes next. What better way to celebrate the recent grad than with gifts? So we've put together a quick list of things you can give them to help celebrate this moment and the next:

A Gift Basket.

We can guarantee most of you reading this are running low on toothpaste, coffee, paper towels, etc., whether you're a grad or not. Growing up, it's easy to assume houses come with things like shower curtains and toilet paper. Getting these necessities is something you don't want your grad worrying about. So let them focus their energy on celebrating instead of getting floss by stocking up on personal care items, batteries, snacks -- put them in a basket, add a bow, and give them the gift they didn't know they needed.

A Watch.

But not just any watch - get a smartwatch like the Apple Watch. Why? Because it's basically a phone on your wrist, and now that the new grad is further into the real world, efficiency is the game's name. The Apple Watch makes tackling those adult responsibilities easier while also traveling light. Not only that, but it looks very professional, don't you agree?

A Blazer.

While they will be applying for jobs and sitting in meetings soon, buying them an entire business outfit financially makes no sense. That's why you should gift them a nice blazer. You can put a blazer over anything and instantly look like you know what you're doing, even if you don't. Plus, it goes great with the Apple Watch, which goes even better with…

One-line Unlimited Wireless for $25/mo.

Wow, what a coincidence: that's what we do. Crazy how this came up. But honestly, we have a robust wireless plan at a rate that won't break the bank. Unlimited data*, talk, text, and hotspot, powered by Verizon, without annual contracts or nightmare-inducing hidden fees. That sounds nice. Better yet, we have the best wearable plan in the game at $5/mo. to go perfectly with that new Apple Watch.

The most important thing you can give a graduate is missing from this list. It's recognition. The hard part (for now) is over, so go out there and help them celebrate their achievement. You earned it. The second most important thing to give is definitely on this list, though... It's Visible. Have them sign up.

*In times of traffic, your data may be temporarily slower than other traffic. Mobile hotspot capped at 5 Mbps.
