Graduation symbolizes the end of an era and the start of a new chapter in someone’s life. This is a time when graduates are focusing on the future and have an opportunity to reinvent themselves with a new lifestyle. Whether a new chapter means healthier living or new accessories, every graduate can use some help getting started. Here are some great ideas for gifts to help jumpstart a new era.

Smartphone Protection

We can’t live without our smartphones, they’re as much a part of us as our hands. For the new graduate, few things would be as devastating to a day as dropping and cracking their phone. Make sure their phone is kept safe and sound as they venture into the big, bad world with some heavy duty and fashionable cell phone cases from www.touchofmodern.com.

Kitchen Supplies

With every fresh start comes a long list of essentials that need to be bought. If a fresh start means moving into a new home, one of the most important things on the list is kitchen supplies. Whether the graduate is starting from scratch or already has the basics covered, there are always unique tools and accessories to add to a kitchen. Tools such as cutlery, silverware, cutting boards, and pans are great practical items any graduate will use on a daily basis and they will be very appreciative.

Cookbooks

Cooking is an invaluable lifelong skill. Make sure your graduate is equipped cook a quality meal instead of gorging on a diet of mac n’ cheese and frozen pizzas. There are thousands and thousands of cookbooks out there with a wide range of style and difficulty. For someone right out of school, start with a more user-friendly book. There are tons of cookbooks for beginners out there with simple recipes that only require a handful of ingredients. Replace the dining halls with knowledge about crafting gourmet meals!

Vacuum Cleaner

Vacuums are the household helpers that no one truly appreciates until they move out of their parent’s house. After a couple weeks of living on their own, the filth will inevitably start to become noticeable. They will be extremely thankful someone gave them a vacuum. Stick to simple vacuums that don’t require a lot of extras such as bags and filters. You want to make the whole process as easy as possible. As your graduate will quickly learn in their next chapter, no one likes living in filth; if they are prone to allergies, keeping a clean carpet will do wonders for overall health and well-being.

Tools

As your graduate begins to acquire new possessions, they will need a good set of basic tools. Whether it be for fixing furniture or hanging a painting, it’s wise to be properly equipped for any task that comes their way. Some bare-bones items every young adult should have include a set of screwdrivers, a hammer, nails, pliers, and a set of wrenches. Much like a vacuum cleaner, tools are a unique and practical gift that won’t truly be appreciated until the recipient is out on their own.

Picture Frames

Now that school is over, exciting adventures lie ahead. Giving your graduate a quality set of picture frames will encourage him or her to document all the highlights. In addition to providing decoration to his or her new home, framed pictures will keep old memories close while capturing the new ones.

Art

Once a graduate is all settled into their new home, they’ll be looking for ways to add some character to the place. Most graduates pretty much start from scratch in this department, and there’s no time like the present to jumpstart their art collection. Check out AllPosters.com and find some awesome prints to spice up their walls and breathe some life into their new home.

Graduation is exciting time in every adult’s life. Use some of these awesome gift ideas to help prepare your graduate for what the future has in store!
