Home Blog Grade A Gifts for Grads

Graduation is a special milestone, marking the end of one chapter and the beginning of another. Whether the grad in your life is about to enter elementary school or finish off high school, celebrate the achievement with a thoughtful present. We’re sharing our favourite stylish, sentimental and practical gift ideas for grads at every stage of their life.

GIFTS THAT ARE FUN AND EDUCATIONAL

Choose a gift that’s equal parts fun and educational for preschoolers or kindergarteners. Let their imagination run wild with a beloved children’s book or encourage their inner artist to shine with tools for painting, drawing or sketching. If they’re forever curious, a board game or puzzle will keep them happy and entertained.

GIFTS THAT MAKE MEMORIES AND SPREAD JOY

Your middle school graduate is ready to make their own memories. An instant camera lets them cherish the polaroids in a scrapbook or decorate their future locker door. For the video game lover, level up their collection so they can play solo or go head-to-head with friends.

GIFTS THAT INSPIRE AND ENCOURAGE

A practical present for your high school graduate will prepare them for the next stage of their life. An Instant Pot is a guaranteed hit for easy and delicious meals, while a cookbook provides plenty of recipe ideas for meal planning. A daily planner or a smart watch will keep them on track with their schedule—and their goals. For a thoughtful keepsake, jewellery like a birthstone necklace or a charm bracelet is sure to touch the heart.

GIFTS THAT SET UP THEM UP FOR SUCCESS

If they’re getting ready to hit the job market, they’re sure to appreciate a functional gift: a tech upgrade in the form of a smartphone or laptop, an insulated mug to keep their beverage hot or cold,  a classic tote bag  or an elegant laptop case to hold all their essentials, or a wallet that’ll last for years to come. If your recent grad plans to travel in the future, a weekender bag or a passport holder will satiate their wanderlust until they can freely travel again.

GIFTS THAT GIVE TEACHERS MEANINGFUL THANKS

Let’s not forget about the dedicated teachers who work tirelessly to educate their students. After a long, unprecedented year, scented candles and aromatherapy kits encourage rest and relaxation. You can also upgrade their work station for the new school year with a classic Moleskine notebook or fun and unique stationery.
