We still have a few years before our son graduates from high school, and then college (although I have a feeling the time between now and then is going to fly by), but I always have a family member or friend with a graduate to shop for, it seems.
I love that Best Buy makes shopping for grads so easy. They even breakdown gifts into 3 categories that I’m sure would fit every single grad:
The Moving Out Grad
The students graduating from high school and moving out for the first time to go to college. The grad getting ready to spread their wings and fly away… thank goodness I have a few more years before this. Sigh.
This grad uses technology to keep totally connected while on the go with a variety of devices all. the. time. This tech forward Grad needs these devices to make their life easier and the latest and greatest is always a priority.
The Fitness Fanatic
Gifts for this grad include tech and small appliances that will help them attain their healthy lifestyles. Out for a run, in the kitchen or at the gym, a great gift for this grad helps them stay on track.
As of right now, I can most definitely see my son as the ‘Networker’. The grad needing technology at his fingertips!

Since my son would have the latest iPhone, an Otterbox Symmetry Case for iPhone 5/5s & Samsung Galaxy S5, which is $50 or less, would be a great gift to help him keep his iPhone safe from all the inevitable drops and falls. Yeah, it’s going to happen.
