‘Tis officially the season of dads and grads, the late spring and early summer period where we celebrate fathers and those entering a new chapter of life. We’ll spend plenty of time on gift advice for dads, so we’ll turn our attention here to the recent graduates. Graduation marks a significant transition period and, while it might be cliche, it’s an opportunity to enter the “real world” (as if things could get more real than surviving in college dorms). So, this is an opportunity to give some serious “adult” gifts, things to spruce up a home and actually whip up some good, non-dining hall meals.
And you don’t need to break the bank on graduation gift-giving. In fact, a quality gift card to a favorite retail shop or online store never hurts. But, if you’re looking for some specific gifts, we’ve got you covered with 50 choices all under the $50 pricetag.
