Congrats to the grads!

The class of 2022 is entering a graduation season that won't be as restricted as those of the past few years, thankfully. Commencement ceremonies will be a mix of virtual and in-person affairs, and the parties and celebrations that typically mark this major milestone will look a little different — but with adjustments, they can happen. Our seniors' accomplishments should be celebrated no matter how unconventional the festivities. Our grads have toiled, slogged and hustled to get to this point.

To help the graduate in your life feel special and to give something suitable to honor the occasion, we’ve curated a list of gift ideas for the current moment. Some are designed to spark joy, while others are intended to be useful, but all are meant to honor the young adult you’re sending off into the world.
