Fun gift ideas for grads

After these past few difficult years, it's time to laugh and have fun again.

Letters to my future self

Your grad might want to document this memorable time of life by journaling with Letters to My Future Self. Then, when future generations ask, they can pull out letters they wrote to their future selves.

Acknowledging the wild ride these grads have already been on

From school shutdown to virtual school to masking all day and back again, these seniors have made it through a lot! Why not acknowledge their tenacity with a fun gift, such as novelty socks, a T-shirt or keychain

App Store and Google Play gift cards

Play games virtually with friends and family, no matter where your grad goes next. Scrabble Go, Uno!, Yahtzee With Buddies Dice and more are available from the App Store and Google Play. Many of the apps are free, though offer in-app purchases.
