Perfect.For every passion.TM
It can be tricky to shop for teens and young adults, but don’t let the age bracket scare you. New graduates—whether bidding farewell to high school and headed to college for the first time or leaving their undergrad years behind and entering the workforce—need plenty of items. College-bound students have entire dorm rooms to fill, plus any teen leaving home for the first time is sure to have tons of questions. Try space-saving decor, productivity tools, or a compendium of practical advice. College seniors also need furniture and decorative accents. But this set probably wants something that’ll make their new space feel less dorm-like (goodbye cinderblock walls and extra-long twin beds!) and more sophisticated (hello framed artwork and a room of her own!). And since most college graduates are (presumably) at least looking for a job, they’ll need desk accessories, a wardrobe revamp, and anything to make a new commute seem a little easier. Of course, you could recognize that any grad—whether college or high school—is probably carrying a certain amount of stress and opt for something a little sillier instead. Pick something—a cozy robe, a set of cocktail glasses, or a duffel bag—to help the graduate relax or take a weekend off when he’s not pulling an all-nighter or staying late to finish that sales presentation. You don’t have to spend a fortune to get the grad something useful, either. All but a select few of these items—handpicked by our editors—retail for less than $50 a pop.
I Just Graduated… Now What?, by Katherine Schwarzenegger
Graduation was fun and the four years that preceded it were even more fun… but once the commencement ceremony is over, graduating can feel like a really scary leap into the unknown. This book, told from the perspective of 30 highly successful notables, answers the tough questions: What to do in an unstable job market, balancing work and friends, choosing a lucrative career versus one your passionate about, and more.

LED Color-Changing Message Board
Going off to college often means trading a bedroom you had to yourself for 18 years for a small cinder block room you share with a perfect stranger. But cool dorm accessories can make the transition more enjoyable… and dare we say exciting. Since the new roommates will often need to leave notes for one another—we need more milk or shhh… I’m studying—they may as well have some fun while doing it.
110% Tired Pillowcase
A funny welcome to adulthood, this pillowcase hints at what’s to come after graduation: An intense need for a full night’s sleep. To ensure she gets enough shut-eye after those late nights in the library, consider pairing this gift with an ultra-soft pillow or two.
