Today marks the beginning of college graduation season, which means you’ll probably be pulling out that credit card to buy quite a few gifts. Sure, it’s easier to throw some cash in an envelope and call it good, but chances are, that money will go toward mundane life expenses and where’s the fun in that?
Instead, treat your grad to something special that they wouldn’t ordinarily buy for themselves. As a graduating senior myself, I can assure you that they will love you for going this route. It can be scary, I know (us, 22-year-olds can be mighty picky) but I’ve talked to my friends, and we’ve rounded up a list of graduation gifts at all price points that will make the grad in your life swoon. From cookbooks to Ray-Bans, you’ll wanna check ’em out in the slideshow.
