Those past few years flew by and it’s time to celebrate! For some of our shoppers, school is out FOREVER! What’s the best gift you can get for your grad? Here are some ideas.
Volunteering is a great way to gain work experience and better yourself. Your baby is going across the country to build houses and teach underprivileged kids, and she wants to share her triumphs with her friends and family… iPhone 5 is the best way to stay connected and have loved ones partake in her successes. It’ll also ease your mind if you haven’t heard from her in a few days.
Plus: Don’t forget to get a sturdy iPhone cover, in case she’s on a job site and drops the phone!
The Next Big ________
Writer, Artist, Designer, Thing. Whether he’s planning on being the next Christopher Nolan, Ernest Hemingway or Steven Spielberg, the Macbook Pro is the perfect graduation gift. With enough processing power to create huge explosions or the right sized screen to read and edit his first novel, this machine will do what you want it to.
Plus: Make sure your Designer has lots of backup storage. You want your young professional to have copies of his work so if he’s submitting work for review, he won’t have to bring his whole setup.
Now what? School is over and he’s just not ready to work the grind. Day in, day out, 9 to 5 just doesn’t fit your grad’s lifestyle. He’s debating between motor biking through Asia or back-packing across Europe. He worries it may seem cliche, but that doesn’t stop him (Go Grad!). Don’t worry about him! The iPad, full or mini, is the most light weight device that still does it all. If he wants to take photos from the top of the Great Wall or post a video of his camel ride on Facebook, he can do it all with just a few clicks.
Plus: It’s worth investing in a hardcore protective case for when he gets caught in a torrential downpour in the Amazon rain forest, or in a whiteout blizzard in Iceland.
The Smarty Pants
Undergrad is done, but she’s continuing her education? Smart choice, Smart Gal! Her computer is still running, but it may be time for something fresh. Check out our trade in program and get her a new Macbook Air. The Macbook Air can take anything you throw at it, including her future Doctorate thesis.
Plus: Grab an external drive so she’ll always have a backup of that 30+ page research paper! Always be prepared.
Are you a graduate? What are your favorite gifts? Doesn’t have to be tech related. We’d love to hear your opinion!
One of my favorite quotes (it’s from the OC) if you’re just finishing up high school, “No one is older than a high school senior, and no one is younger than a college freshman.”
Best of luck and congratulations from Springboard Media!
