Graduation Gifts for Guys Idea Guide

  1. Find out his favorite treat and fill a canister with it. Tie a pretty bow and you have a great present that he will use again and agian in his dorm room.
  2. A backpack laundry bag like the Stramperbag. The Stramperbag stands up on its own and has several compartments for detergent or to keep clothes separate
  3. A desk lamp, especially a super cool, slim one will light up their study space
  4. Airpods are a peacekeeper in the dorm. Want to be alone with your own music? Airpods. Want to drown out dorm noise? Airpods. Want to be polite and not annoy others with your taste in music, video games, movies, or tv? Airpods.
  5. One way or another, he is going to need to shower and shave (well, hopefully). Toiletry sets will definitely make their way into his college packing. Hot brands are Jack Black, and Kiehl’s.
  6. Nice pajama pants are great for walking around the dorm in comfort. It’s also good to have something to sleep in beside boxers when traveling. Joggers are especially popular right now.
  7. A basic tool kit comes in handy in the dorm and in their first apartment. Make or buy one that includes a level, measuring tape, box cutter, and a set of screw drivers.
  8. College students are always on the move. They travel home, to friends’ homes, and on trips with school organizations. They even take semesters abroad. A sturdy toiletry kit is a must to save their clothes from leaky liquids. The kit also keeps everything in one place when grooming.
  9. A nice leather wallet gives them a place to store their student ID, which they will be constantly flashing all over campus.
