If you have a recent high school (or college) graduate to buy a gift for, below are some ideas (the majority of which I received as gifts for high school graduation, aside from the always-loved cash and gift cards, that helped me throughout my college experience that I still have and use to this day):
For the dorm room (or first solo apartment):
*Laundry basket filled with: Command strips (SO expensive for what they are, especially when they’re the only thing you can use in a dorm room), batteries, cleaning supplies, tool kit, power strips, 10 ft. phone charger, etc. (This would be SO appreciate by a college graduate. Maybe even more so than a high school graduate. #adulting)
For campus (or commuting to your first job):
Umbrella: Do not forget to purchase an umbrella, folks.
John Hart clear crossbody bag for gameday
For everything in-between:
Gift cards and cash: Target, Starbucks, Local college apparel outfitter
