Congrats to the grads!

The class of 2020 is facing a graduation season like none we’ve seen before. In a typical year, parties, ceremonies and all the pomp and circumstance that come with hitting such a hard-earned milestone would fill the months of May and June. This year, however, is different.

Commencements will be mostly virtual and schools will likely mail diplomas rather than handing them out onstage. The cap-throwing won’t be as climactic when it’s one graduate in a living room or backyard. Still, 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 for this strange time, we’ve curated a list of gift ideas. Some are designed to spark joy whlie others are intended to be useful, but all are meant to honor the young adult you’re sending off into the world.

Use the arrows above the image to scroll through the grad gift ideas.
