Best High School Graduation Gift Ideas for Her In 2022
Lifesaver. If your grad doesn't already own a card wallet, make sure you get her one!!
As a new adult, she'll have to learn how to carry money and a ton of cards around including her bank card, college I.D. card, and business cards she'll collect or hand out during career networking events.
This card wallet will make sure her money and cards stay in a safe and secure place instead of being tossed about to and fro in the bottom of her bag.
Finally, I just love how cute this card wallet from Etsy is!! On Etsy, you can personalize the card wallet by adding your grads initials.
If you're looking for a great inexpensive high school graduation gift idea for her, this pom pom keychain is life-changing.
As a young adult, I always hated digging at the bottom of my purse or backpack for what seemed like forever, trying to find my keys. Getting a pom-pom keychain for my keys changed my life!
Because of its size and eye-catching features, the pom-pom key chain makes it so easy to find keys in a purse. Like, mere seconds instead of minutes!!! Your grad will be so grateful to have a pom-pom too.
Turn this pom pom gift into a full gift, by getting these other must-have keychain accessories too:
Most Wanted. Out of all of the gifts on this list, this is definitely the most wanted graduation gift on this list. Every single grad of 2021 wanted one.
And it makes sense!
The Apple Watch is amazing - it can track workouts, send and receive text messages, play podcasts, and play music all right from the wrist.
Rest assured, this is a gift she'll absolutely be obsessed with!
Second Most Wanted. The second most wanted high school graduation gift idea on this list is easily air pods! Girls love these because it makes multi-tasking so easy (which is an important skill to have in college), it has incredible sound, and most importantly, they'll never fall out of your she grads' ears!
They're built to sit strong and snug in the user's ears. Make your grads' wish come true by getting her a pair of air pods!
(Just make sure your grad owns an apple phone or computer first because it only pairs with apple products).
Can't afford the air pods but want to get your high school graduate a good wireless headphone? Then, I highly recommend that you get Powerbeats Pro.
My husband just got me one for Christmas and I am obsessed with it! I use them every day, especially when I go for a run and work out at the gym, and they NEVER fall off. The music sounds really good in my ears and I can start and pause a track by just tapping on the beats.
As such, if you're thinking about buying this product for your she grad, I say "go for it". We bought mine on Amazon and got it within 2 days with Prime shipping.
If your high school graduate is addicted to coffee, then she'll absolutely love a Starbucks cup as a gift and use it every day.
Another insanely good high school graduation gift idea is this Chanel No. 5. The Chanel No.5 is rated the second best perfume by experts, and your she grad will love this so much, especially if this is her first luxury perfume.
She'll feel confident every time she goes out with friends because this Chanel perfume will make her smell good!
I am super passionate about this: If your grad has been using the same old computer for years, it's time for an upgrade!!! Gift her this MacBook Air.
In college, she will have a TON of documents to download, a TON of work to manage, and she'll need the best of the best computers to hold it all together for her.
I have the rose-gold MacBook Air and it's literally been life-changing. I can work for nearly two days straight with 40 tabs open without charging it.
I also don't have to worry about malware, which will be huge if your she grad is going to college. In college, losing work to malware sucks and can set you behind.
The MacBook will make sure this never happens to your grad.
This is just my opinion, but I honestly think that this Kate Spade bag is one of the chicest, most gorgeous bags on the market.
It can literally go with any outfit and serve multiple purposes: formal attire events, work, go-to bag for shopping trips with friends, etc.
Plus, out of all the bags, this is the most requested bag for a graduation gift by high school graduates.
During the pandemic, jogger pants have become a girl's best friend. You won't go wrong getting your high school graduate this super comfy gift.
This sweatsuit set cost a little more than the jogger, but if you can afford it, consider gifting your high school graduate a full sweatsuit set.
It'll keep her warm and allow her legs to breathe as she spends hours behind her desk and computer studying from her dorm/bedroom.
If you're she grad has a ton of makeup and enjoys buying makeup, then this gift is a no-brainer. She'll be so excited to use this to organize her makeup and use it daily to prepare for school or work each day.
If your she grad takes makeup seriously, then you should definitely consider getting her this complete makeup gift set.
Odds are, your she grad may only have a small handful of shades to play with and she would absolutely kill to get her hands on this!
With this makeup set, you'll help you grad take her makeup game to the next level.
If you didn't know, getting your nails done is self-care and boy do we women love getting our nails done!
Amazon has an amazing variety of nail polish sets that you can choose from. I highly recommend going with this set of glossy and trendy colors since most ladies like to match their nail polish with their outfits.
If your high school graduate is going away to college and plans to come home on the weekends sometimes, this will make a perfect graduation gift.
Beanies are a game-changer and a perfect, budget-friendly high school graduation gift idea for her. Whenever she doesn't feel like doing her hair or is having a bad hair day, she can throw this over her head and still feel cute.
Must-Have. Cell phones today are insanely more sophisticated than they were 20 years ago. Case in point: I actually FAXED a document to someone using my phone today!
Unfortunately, due to its hyper functionality, I can easily drain my cell phone's battery by mid-day and I bet your she grad can too! As such, for graduations and birthdays, I always recommend gifting ladies this portable charger from Amazon.
It's one of the best I've found on the internet.
This is a gift that your she grad will actually use but may never think to buy for herself.
Surprise her with these boots so she'll look cute and stay dry while walking in the rain. When it's raining cows, she'll think of you and feel so grateful.
19) College branded Umbrella
First, if your high school graduate is going away to college, literally any college branded item that will help her rep her college, will be a gift she'll absolutely fall in love with.
Nevertheless, I highly recommend getting your grad a college-branded umbrella. They are known for being much sturdier than the average store-bought umbrellas and make a great keepsake present your grad will actually use.
Another sweet and inexpensive high school graduation gift idea for her is a journal. As a college freshman, I heavily used my journal because it was so self-soothing to dump my thoughts, worries, and cares on paper each morning and each evening of each day.
It literally helped me make sense of the challenges I faced and some of the unpleasant experiences I had while in college.
In summary, if you know your she grad enjoys expressing herself through writing, then this journal will be a life-saver.
Want to play it really safe? Get this gift. A girl can never have too much body wash, perfume, or lotion.
Another fantastic high school graduation gift idea for her is this You Got This Devotional by Melissa Horvath. Entering the real world is a tough learning curve and may cause your she grad to feel discouraged or defeated at times.
This book can be an amazing pick me up to get her through the day.
If you're looking for a good summer reading book that will impact your grad in a big positive way, then this book is perfect for her.
This book will silence any and every doubt in her mind that she isn't worthy and help her realize that she is uniquely special and worthy of being herself.
If your grad is a coffee-lovin' woman who is going off to college soon, then this is a must-have graduation gift that she'll be obsessed with.
My college roommate had one and there was never a morning that she didn't use it. This mini Keurig help your grad save money while also getting the coffee fix she wants.
I cannot tell you how many times I called home to ask my mother for cheap dinner recommendations and tips on how to make my favorite dish come out as good as hers.
Save your grad's mother (or yourself if you're the mom) and your grad the trouble by gifting her very own cookbook for college students. This book will be a game-changer and save her tons of frustrated nights in the kitchen.
26) Hair Accessories - Headbands, Bobby pins, Hair ties
A girl can never have too many hair accessories, especially hair ties and bobby pins. How they get lost, I shall never don't know but we're always in need!
As such, if you're on a tight budget, this will make an excellent high school graduation gift for her.
Another affordable gift that high school graduates enjoy getting is shower steamers, and I totally understand why.
Shower steamers are so relaxing, super soothing, and can be a great stress reliever after a long day of school/work. This shower steamer will change their life.
If your high school grad was anything like me when I graduated, the straightener she used to do her hair the past four years technically does not belong to her. It belongs to her mother!
It's time to change that. Surprise your grad with this straighter.
The CHI Lava Ceramic Hairstyle Iron is rated #1 the best overall hair straightener by Good House Keeping.
Young women love an elegant crossbody bag that they can take with them on a casual night out on the town, to eat, and on fun day trips with friends.
What I love most about this crossbody bag from Nordstrom is that it's big enough to carry my phone, my card wallet, and a few self-care items but small enough to wear with an elegant sundress when meeting up with friends.
This gift will definitely make your graduate's day!
Like perfume and bags, a girl can never have too many tank tops. Tank tops are the perfect gift because they can be used in so many different ways:
(1) as an undershirt to hide cleavage
(2) as a complete piece when paired with a hot blazer
(3) as a laidback top to wear around the house on Netflix-and-chill days, and
(4) as a workout top at the gym.
As such, your grad will always have a reason to wear tank tops. Just make sure that you get a cropped tank top as that is the style that is trending right now and most desired by girls.
This cropped tank top from American Eagle fits the bill exactly.
Which girl wouldn't want a stylish pair of shades that'll make her feel "cool"? Shades will always come in handy for her, whether she is going to the beach with friends or going to a college football game.
Up your grad's fashion game another level by getting her very own pair.
Mom jeans are super trendy right now. Every girl wants to own one. If they can own several pairs of mom jeans, even better. You will literally make your grad's week if you gift her a pair of mom jeans.
I got my mom jeans from American Eagle and I am absolutely obsessed with them. So obsessed, in fact, that I wear the same pair several times a week.
Also, according to my friends, make my butt look good! haha! So go get your grad a pair from American Eagle. She'll feel so confident in them.
Because the pandemic appears to not be letting up anytime soon and masks have become part of our everyday wardrobe, a super safe but awesome high school graduation gift idea for her is a pack of really cute masks with designs and patterns that she can match up with her outfits.
I love the masks from Etsy because they have a huge variety of masks and they're one of the best designed and best-patterned masks on the internet.
If your grad has a bunch of jewelry, then she'll love this jewelry to-go case. This box makes will make it so easy for her to carry her favorite jewelry on trips without the hassle and worry of misplacing them.
I mean, how cute is this jewelry to-go box? Etsy literally has some of the most charming accessories on the internet.
All your grads' friends will wonder where she got this box. It's sooo cute!!
Another amazing high school graduation gift idea for her is a baseball cap.
This baseball cap will keep your grad cool when she's outside during the dead heat of summer or sitting in the stadium of a college football game where it's easy to become sticky and hot.
I have a really bad habit of leaving things behind when leaving the house, so when I saw this, I freaked out. This door knob organizer makes it virtually impossible to forget anything since it's all right there at the door!!
As such, if your grad suffers from forgetfulness too, get this for her!! It will literally change her mornings for the rest of her life.
If your grad loves make-up, then this gift is genius! I hate when I pack makeup in my bag and it spells out and gets everywhere. It's the worst.
This makeup to-go case will make sure your grad never has a spilling incident!
This is another "a-girl-can-never-have-too-many" item. Uggs can become tired and flat pretty quickly so stocking your grad with fresh pair of fluffy, soft Ugg slippers will make a great gift.
Another gift your grad will be excited to receive is a couple of sports bras, especially if she enjoys going to the gym. Unlike the straps on traditional bras that are common to fall off the shoulders during a serious workout, this sports bra will stay tightened yet comfortable in place.
I also personally love sports bras because I can designate them for gym use only and use my regular bras for regular wear instead of wearing my regular bra for every occasion.
Girls love getting their eyebrows freshly done but getting it done regularly is just not an option for many of them because one visit could cost as much as $20.
Nevertheless, you can help your grad keep her eyebrows "on fleek" as they say, by gifting your grad her own eyebrow razor.
I saved a ton of money in college by getting it professionally done first and then maintaining the shape of my eyebrows by cutting away the new hairs that come in with the razor. It was such a good hack!
The next gift your graduation would love to receive this time of year is a fresh pair of sneaks, especially if she's going off to college soon. Her shoes should be stylish but functional for running.
The DA Cloud Swift sneakers definitely fits the bill and is the most sought-after shoe on the internet.
Equally coveted by high school grads are these Adidas work out shoes that are super trendy right now. These shoes also are less expensive than the cloud swift sneakers.
As such, if you don't have cloud swift money, then these Adidas are the next great buy. You can find these shoes in a variety of colors on Amazon.
Okay. If by this point you're still not sure what you want to buy your grad, then at a minimum, add this belt bag to your cart! Belt bags are a must for a young adult.
Whenever she goes to a concert, a college home game, or to the fair with friends, she'll want to use her belt bag to carry her I.D., phone, and some change.
If your grad is anything like me, she's always wrapped up in a blanket because she gets cold easily and/or likes to be wrapped up no matter what she's doing at home.
If so, then this snuggie from Amazon will help. Wearing a snuggie is so much better than trying to get warm with a blanket because there is at least one part of the body exposed.
So, take it from me. A snuggie is a game-changer and your grad will love it.
For the days that your high school grad wants to dress up and do her hair really pretty, this curly wand will come in real handy. This curly wand from Amazon makes it SO easy to create the most perfect curls.
In addition, she'll be able to save money because she won't need to the salon with this wand.
Another insanely good high school graduation idea for her is this swell bottle. I'm obsessed with these and they make the perfect gift!
This bottle is so chic, keeps beverages cold for 41 hours (insane!), and keeps beverages hot for 18 hours! I promise, your grad will be obsessed with this too!
P.S. If you don't like this color or pattern, there is a TON of swell bottles and other beverage and food containers with pretty colors and designs.
Okay...so this cropped sweater is trending big time right now!! The college girls are obsessed with this cropped sweater and wear them to class often.
So, by all means, this is hands down a gift your high school grad will love.
College girls love getting their cropped sweaters at stores like H&M and American Eagle, so I'm sharing my favorites from both stores.
As you can imagine, taking makeup off is such an annoying chore. Any young woman who wears makeup would love to have something that could help them take their makeup off faster and efficiently.
Well, this cleansing balm is the answer. This cleansing balm not only removes the make up leaving 0 residues behind, but it also treats the skin, removes dark spots and pigmentation, and brightens the skin.
Remember the snuggie I told you about on #43? Well, if you want to do even better for your high school grad, this is better!!
This heated throw will make sure your grad never feels cold again and can be used to treat sore muscles.
Does your grad own a MacBook? If so, then a MacBook case (if she doesn't already have one) will make a perfect high school graduation gift.
I didn't realize it until I owned my own MacBook but the cover of the MacBook stains easily and can get scratched if I'm not careful.
Help your grad protect her MacBook by getting her a MacBook case. On Etsy, you can personalize the MacBook by adding your grad's name or by choosing from one of their pretty, unique designs.
Is your grad very health conscious or need help remembering to drink more water? Well, this bottle will do the trick.
Seeing how much water she has consumed and has left to drink, will motivate your grad to finish the bottle each day. It may also inspire her to create her own water challenge.
Sometimes the best gifts aren't what we want but what we need. In this case, it's the USB/HDMI adapter for MacBook users.
If you know that your she grad owns or will own a MacBook and is going away to college, then this adapter will come in handy at some point.
This adapter can help your grad connect her computer to the TV when she's ready to watch something on the big screen with friends. It can also help her connect to a monitor with PowerPoint slides in class.
Does your grad love her bed? If so, she'll love her bed even more with this full-body pillow.
This pillow will take on a whole new meaning of comfort and save her in times when she's not feeling well.
Another insanely good high school graduation gift idea for her is a Phone Sanitizer UV box. With Covid still here, making sure her phone gets clean and sanitized regularly is so important and a great way to help your grad avoid exposing her self to unnecessary germs.
Plus, since cleaning the phone by hand is such an annoying chore, your high school grad will appreciate you so much for purchasing this. This one from Amazon is life-changing!!
If your grad is going away to college in a state or country that doesn't get much sunlight, then a really good high school graduation gift idea for her is a light therapy lamp. Colleges in states/countries that get very little sunlight during the year are known for causing students to run really low on Vitamin D.
According to Unity Point Health, being low on vitamin D can cause awful side effects including low energy, hair loss, frequent illness, fatigue, and tiredness.
Gifting her this light therapy lamp is a great way to make sure your grad doesn't become Vitamin D deficient.
Another great graduation gift idea for her if she's going away to college is a power strip surge protector. Dorms are notorious for not having enough outlets and sometimes the outlets are placed in very weird locations of the room.
Make life easier for your grad and give her one less thing she has to buy for college by gifting her a power strip surge protector. She'll want this power strip because it comes with USB ports as well.
Another great, inexpensive gift that you can give your high school grad is fuzzy socks. They are so warm, feel incredibly comfy, and if she'll be living in the dorms soon, will keep her from slipping.
Dorm floors are typically very cold and slippery, so she'll use this ALL the time.
The next great high school graduation gift idea is this gorgeous Kate Spade lunch tote. No matter what your grad's plans are for life after high school, there will be many situations in which she'll need to carry food with her:
Work break, snack break between class, snack or lunch break at the library, etc. The alternative, a plastic bag, is not cute.
Help her take lunch in style by getting her this cute lunch tote by Kate Spade. Right now, you can get it on Amazon for a really affordable price!
Your grad will absolutely fall in love with it.
If your grad is moving into her first apartment or college dorm, then consider surprising her with a complete set of microwavable safe Tupperware.
It'll be something that she'll actually use for several years into the future.
61) College Apparel - Hoodie
Another great high school graduation gift idea for her if she's college-bound is a college-branded hoodie.
She will FREAKIN' love you for this since this gift will allow her to start reppin' her school she's no doubt proud and excited to attend.
Colleges and Universities usually sell their apparel at their bookstore in store and online.
Crocs will easily be her first choice too when she's going to games, visiting the beach with friends, or making a quick errand. You can check out all the amazing colors and types of crocs that will best fit your grad's style on crocs.com.
Getting a really good backpack that's both aesthetically gorgeous but super functional can be pretty pricey for a young, broke college bound student.
And when being forced to choose between a gorgeous bag she can wear for the next four years at college and saving her coins for much-needed cookware, getting a cute bag might not be an option.
So help your grad have both by gifting her a dreamy college bag. She'll be so excited and happy to have it.
Life-changing. If your high school grad enjoys dressing up or has a lot of clothes that need pressing, this steamer is the gift for her!
She'll be able to avoid the dry cleaners and save tons of money and time using her own steamer, which will help her quickly and efficiently take the wrinkles out of her clothes.
I personally love this steamer. I used it to press out the wrinkles of my dress when I was the maid of honor of my best friend's wedding and it got the job done quickly.
Is your grad obsessed with candles? Some of the best gifts are simple, everyday products. Gift her what she already loves by getting her a candle (or two) from Yankee Candles (my favorite candle store!).
I'm in love with Yankee Candles because they let you choose your candle by color, fragrance, and within the budget of your choosing.
And because Yankee Candle has a ton of amazing options, shopping for the perfect candle for myself or my friends takes only minutes to do. As such, if you want to get the perfect candle for your grad, Yankee Candle is the place!
P.S. I love anything that smells like Christmas so I chose Christmas cookie, which so happens to be Yankee Candle's most popular cookie on its site. As such, you won't go wrong gifting this candle.
If your grad will be traveling back and forth by plane between college and home visits, then consider gifting your grad with a travel pillow.
They are so good at knocking a person out on the plane and making a plane ride so much more comfortable. I literally can't leave home without mine!
If your grad has a long summer ahead of her and you're looking for a great book to gift her, then this is the book.
Blink will give her the amazing science behind how she and others around her think, why people are compelled to make the choices they make, and why some people win and others lose, among other things.
I believe getting a better understanding of these human moments will positively equip her mentally and inspire her to have more compassion for all the different people she'll meet in the real world.
If your grad is a girly girl, then another amazing high school graduation gift idea is some lip balm. A girl can never have too much. It's a super safe gift that she'll totally use.
According to Health, this lip balm from Sephora ranks #1 of the best lip balms on the market. And its under $25! Insane!
Another fantastic high school graduation gift idea for her is a polaroid. GenZ's love getting polaroids as gifts because they love taking selfies and pictures of their daily adventures.
With her polaroid, your grad will be able to capture and instantly print all her fun moments. Then she can either put her pictures in a scrapbook or hang them up on her dorm wall.
If your grad is going away and will be making weekend home visits, then she'll totally love getting a cute carry-on suitcase. The last time I went suitcase shopping, I was shocked to find just how pricey good carry-on suitcases can get despite how tiny they are.
As such, if you could lift this monetary burden off of her, this will make a perfect gift.
Away has the hands-down best carry-on suitcases in the world! Designing the best of the best is literally their #1 mission and speciality, so you won't go wrong gifting your deserving grad an Away bag.
Another brilliant high school graduation gift idea is a motivational calendar. I got one as a graduation gift and it came in real handy when I was a law student.
By way of example, there were so many mornings I felt so defeated by law school and the motivational calendar always had an amazing message that encouraged me to keep going.
As such, I know this calendar will encourage your grad during her difficult times too.
If your grad is going off to college and she always needs a fan or some white noise running in the background, then gifting her with this noise canceller would be perfect for her.
This noise canceller is super compact, can fit easily in a backpack or suitcase when traveling, and actually works in putting people to sleep fast.
Another good high school graduation idea for her is a scrapbook.
She can use her scrapbook to memorialize all the wonderful memories she had in high school or bring the scrapbook along with her to college and add pictures to it as she creates new memories.
Do you know what GenZ's love equally to mom jeans? Leggings!! They are commonly worn to class in college and when chilling around the house. And with this pandemic, leggings are the preferred pants to wear.
My favorite store to get leggings is definitely Athleta because the material is high quality at a really affordable price.
Remember when I said on No. 58 that dorms are notorious for not having enough outlets? Well, lack of outlets and poor outlet placements makes it really tough to charge a phone.
When I was in college, I had to charge my phone with the phone IN BED with me because my dorm's outlet was in an obscure location behind my bed frame.
And I don't like having my phone so close to me because according to the CDC, cell phones give off radiation when they buzz and send signals which can be harmful and cause health problems years later.
Had I known about the wireless Bluetooth desk phone charger sooner, I would have bought one for myself so I could charge my phone on my desk and away from me.
As such, if your high school grad will be moving into a dorm soon, this wireless Bluetooth desk phone charge will be a game-changer for her!
P.S. Yes, this one is iPhone and Android Compatible.
If your grad gets hot easily and is going off to college soon, this mini fan will make a perfect high school graduation gift. It'll keep her cool while she's studying at her desk.
This fan is also small enough to put in her purse should she decide to study at the library or sleep over at her friend's house.
So, this product is another genius gift idea that your grad will love and actually use but never buy for herself.
Laptop and phone screens get dusty and spotty real quick and when you don't have the right products, screen cleaning can feel like another chore that you just want to put off (I'm so guilty of this, haha!).
Enveo, however, makes it so easy to clean screens. So much so that your grad will feel motivated to regularly clean her laptop and photo screen.
Your grad can also use Enveo to clean her glasses (if she owns a pair) and can even use it to clean her stove!
As such, the screen cleaning kit is an amazing gift option for her.
Another fantastic high school graduation gift idea for her is a luxury purse. The bag most wanted by young adults is this beautiful black Kate Spade bag.
I can almost guarantee that your grad will flip out (in a godo way) if you get her one!!
Another bag that your high school graduate will be equally obsessed with, especially if she's going away to college, is this duffle bag.
If she's making a short trip home, going on a road trip, or a fun outdoor spot with friends, she can pack light using this cute duffle bag.
If your grad is going away to college, she'll love to be gifted with a diffuser. A diffuser will keep her room smelling fresh at all times, make her new place feel homey, and help your grad relax after a long day of school.
P.S. This diffuser is New York Times #1 Pick for Best Diffusers for producing a strong stream of mist and lasting longer between refills, among other things.
I wasn't aware of this until I did my research for this post, but I found that this facial roller is a MEGA popular graduation gift.
Many GenZ women wants one and is excited to try it out on their face.
As such, if your grad enjoys putting on makeup or doing facials. you cannot go wrong by gifting your grad with a facial roller too.
This mini-fridge is also another wonderful high school graduation gift idea that is trending on Amazon right now.
Young women love to be gifted mini-fridges because they can take the fridge along with them to college and use it to store their snacks and drinks they don't want anyone else to know about.
They can also use the fridge to keep their skincare products fresh.
Also, I personally love just how portable the fridge is. Your grad can sit her fridge on her desk, under her desk, or under her bed. Plus, this mini-fridge is super affordable.
You can get a mini-fridge right now on Amazon for under $40, which I think is amazing given that we're talking about a fridge!!!
The next best high school graduation gift idea for her is a mini backpack. Women love to have bag options, and depending on the trip (i.e. the fair or an art festival), your grad may prefer to carry a mini backpack instead.
In college, she can also use her mini backpack on the days when her class schedule is light and doesn't warrant carrying her big heavy backpack around campus.
Your grad will fall in love with this mini backpack. The color is so cute and has really good space to carry all of her must-have items.
If you're looking for the perfect game that your grad and her friends will enjoy when they get together and/or have game night, Cards Against Humanity is the game you'll want to buy.
It is the #1 most popular game for Young Adults and it has over 116,000 5-star reviews! I've played this game with both my college friends and church friends and its always a fun time!
We love this game because we can play Cards Against Humanity with a small or huge crowd, it requires everyone's engagement at all times (so no one ever gets bored which is a huge plus), and the cards are hilarious. They will make anyone and everyone laugh.
Unique Graduation Gifts
Want to gift your high school grad something unique? Well, I have the best list of unique graduation gift ideas that your grad will be obsessed with!
GenZ's and Millenials are obsessed with tumblers so take your grad's obsession to the next level by gifting this super cute tumbler with her name on it from Etsy.
Another great unique high school graduation idea for her is this personalized mug with a clever message acknowledging that your grad got through school during a pandemic.
Your grad will have a great laugh with this mug and will want to keep it forever to remember this unprecedented time in history.
Charm bracelets are another wonderful unique high school graduation idea for her. On Etsy, you can personalize your grad's charm bracelet by adding her name or the initial of her name, her grad date, a birthstone, or any other charm of your choice.
Or if you want to get her a truly timeless charm bracelet, you can put together a beautiful piece by Pandora.
No matter which one you choose, your grad will love this gift for the thoughtfulness and time that you spent creating her charm bracelet.
While gifting your grad a pen as a graduation gift isn't super unique, gifting her a cute chic pen with an encouraging word, definitely is!
Unlike most pens that are black, heavy, dull, and boring, this will be a pen that your grad will enjoy writing with and keep for memory's sake.
Ok, I'm going to try to not laugh too hard as a write about this product but...
The squatty potty is by far the most unique high school graduation gift idea for her and one she'll actually love once she tries it out!
In one of her videos, YouTube Star, Alisha Marie, was talking about how excited she was to receive a squatty potty (aka. the step-up stool pictured above) because the potty apparently helps you poop better.
There is like a whole science behind it. Who knew!
Also, your grad may have already seen the hilarious unicorn squatty potty video that went viral on Facebook and was seen by hundreds of millions of people.
So give her the laugh and the potty experience of her life by gifting her, her very own squatty potty.
The next uniquely genius high school graduation gift idea for her is a waterproof shower phone holder.
I am almost 100% positive that your grad carries her phone into the bathroom with her, and if she could carry her phone into the shower with her, she would!!
And why not?
With the shower phone holder, she can have real karaoke time in the shower, take calls, and continue listening to her favorite podcasts as she bathes. This is a gift your high school grad will definitely be obsessed with!
If your high school grad is going away to college, then a blanket with pictures of loved ones would be perfect for her.
She'll be able to keep her loved ones close even though they're far away, snuggle with her blanket whenever she's feeling homesick, and share with friends the special person or persons in her life.
If your grad is moving away to another state for school, the next amazingly unique high school graduation gift idea for her is a frame of her state.
It'll be a sweet keepsake gift that will always remind her of home and may make a great decor piece for her new place!
You may not know this but setting up and lying in a hammock across the lawn on college campus is definitely a thing. I've seen tons of students put up one when they just want a different environment to study or read a book from.
But I would only purchase this hammock if your grad loves trying new things and won't feel too shy to set it up outside where she'll potentially be seen.
If that's a yes, then go for it!
Does your grad live or will live in a place that gets really cold and even snows during the wintertime? If so, then touch screen gloves are an awesome high school graduation gift idea for her.
Unlike regular gloves, touch screen gloves make it possible for people to scroll through their phones and make calls easily without taking their gloves off. As such, this is a life-changing gift that your grad will love and use.
Another unique high school graduation gift idea for her is a charcuterie board. Young people are always getting together, whether it be for game night, for a trip to the beach, or to watch the Superbowl, for example.
And guess what the number one snack is at these get-togethers? Yep, you guessed it. Chips and dip.
Make getting together over food easier by getting your grad her very own charcuterie board. Her friends will be so impressed that she has one.
The next great unique high school graduation idea for her is this portable fan. This fan is different from the desk fan I mentioned in No. 80 because this fan is much lighter, smaller, and designed specifically for games.
Your grad will love this gift, especially if she's going away to a college with established sports teams. It'll keep her cool on the days when the sun is beating down on her as she is watching the game from the stands or on the days goes running.
This fan is unique from other fans you'll typically find because this one sits comfortably on your neck to give you the best cooling experience.
An inexpensive high school graduation gift idea for her that is super unique is this custom acrylic plaque.
It's a wonderful keepsake gift that your grad can easily place on her desk or nightstand...and then later, on her own entertainment center with other interesting relics she collects over the years.
You got to love Etsy!! Aren't these the cutest?! Anyway, I digress. If your grad has air pods but is constantly misplacing them, then an air pods keychain would be the perfect graduation gift for her.
While you can buy air pods keychain at a variety of stores, no store provides a great personalized option for your air pods cover as Etsy does.
On Etsy, there are so many colors and patterns you can choose from and you can add her name to the keychain to make it truly personal.
Last but not least, another great unique graduation gift that you can get for your grad is this graduation gift set.
This gift set contains all the must-haves:
- a fragrant candle
- a frame for her favorite high school grad picture
- a teddy bear towel that she can carry with her on her new adventures,
- beautiful dried flowers that she can keep encased forever to remember her special day
- and a mug that says, "And so the journey begins..." to acknowledge the new journey she'll soon embark on.
This graduation gift box is the perfect gift if your grad is your friend, niece, or daughter.
Another insanely good graduation gifts idea is a funny quotes calendar 2022. Every month your grad can turn the page and have a huge laugh!
Here is an example of a funny quote I love from the calendar: "I was born to be wild, but only until like 9PM." Haha.
