Graduation Gift Ideas for him and her

It's graduation season where every graduate is pumped with excitement. They have finally reached another milestone and moving on to the next phase of their life, be it a full-time career, further studies or just going to do the things they love.

However with the recent pandemic and social distancing implementation, holding graduation ceremonies, especially high school or college graduation, may be out of the question for the next few months. Even though most graduates of 2020 are missing out on the chance of donning on their graduation gowns, friends and family can still give them their grad gifts. Here are some cheap graduation gifts in SG!

Graduation Bear

We are starting off with the classic Graduation Bear, a must have for every graduate to hold one when they are taking their pictures, be it celebrating it at home or in school. It does not matter if your graduate is already a young adult, they would still love to have a stuffed grad bear.

Graduation Figurine Design Pen ($1.00)

This Eco-Friendly Green Product with a durable hard cover is Muji Inspired. For a clean, minimalism style, this is a great option as a graduation gift. As it is so simply designed, users can decorate it the way they want to show their personalities.

Decoration ideas can be pasting cute stickers or drawing on the cover. Stickers are not always childish, we have options like this Gold Foil Accent Mini Stickers ($1.20) that are appealing to young adults.

A4 Notepad ($2.00)

This notepad has a Velcro-fasted side compartment consisting of 4 individual slots for filing or stationery. The writing pad on the other side is refillable.

As all graduates are going to their next study phase, they will start to have more subjects than they used to. This file can help them to sort their worksheets and also take notes or do assignments on the writing pad. Just like the A6 Recycled Notebook, it can be decorated to their own liking.

These are functional and great gift ideas that are suitable for college grads going into post college or starting their job search. Or for those searching for graduation gift for guys, you are going to like this!

Smart Watch

Gifting watches is always a good idea as they are functional and fashionable. But why not upgrade to getting a Smart Watch? They have now upgraded to a point where they have a lot of functions, like connecting to wi fi, GPS to track your location and navigate easily and monitoring your heart rate.

This is a good gift for college graduates who are starting their work life as Smart Watches are going to come in handy during meetings. It is also going to help them track their health after long working hours. You can try Apple Watch Series 5 as they have good heart health diagnostic tools. You can get different watch bands like stainless steel ones or different colours like silver or rose gold.

Besides smart watches, you can look at smart home devices like the Amazon Echo or Philips Hue that would be great for university students moving into dorm rooms.

Coffee Maker

This suggestion may seem a little odd but coffee makers are going to help save time in the morning and save money from buying cups of coffee in the long run. Modern coffee machines like the Nespresso can serve up a delicious cup of caramel macchiato that is just as good as other Coffee Stalls like Starbucks. The price range is still at the affordable range if you decide to split the cost with other friends, with coffee machines from $99 onwards.

Laptop Sleeve

This is going to be a functional high school graduation gift/ college graduation gift, as they would most likely be using laptops for school or work. A laptop sleeve or case not only acts as a protection for their laptops but as a fashion statement too. Sleeves helps to minimize dust or other debris that can clog the fans and vents of the laptop, causing hardware damage. Laptops like the Macbook Air are so expensive nowadays, so prevention is key!
