As finals wrap up and students prepare for graduation, students are ready to make the move from their college life into the real world. Leaving behind countless pieces of Ikea furniture, trading in pizza for the inevitable ramen diet, and replacing flip flops for Oxfords are all but part of the first year transitioning to their first big kid job.
There are many ways to congratulate students with a graduation gift – from your standard cash or giftcards to something a bit more extravagant such as a brand new car. However, here at Tech.Co we are most fond of continuing education, practicality, and personal growth – all of which are components often found in successful entrepreneurs. The occasionally expensive gadget doesn’t hurt either. If you are tired of purchasing a stack of Oh, The Places You'll Go! as graduation gifts, we’ve compiled some creative gift ideas for the graduate in your life. From experiencing new places and cultures, to teaching yourself how to cook amazing meals, through honing in on your expertise, these are the graduation gifts that your grads will love.
