#SaturdaySwag: Gifts for the Graduate!


Graduation is such an exciting time in a young person’s life.  The completion of one goal and the beginning of achieving another is a reason to celebrate! The sky’s the limit for the student who puts in hard work and dedication.  Here are a few ideas for the graduate in your life!


Wish your graduate many happy returns with the gift of stock. What better way to teach your graduate about investing than giving them a share in their favorite stock?  Stockpile has a great program that allows you to give your graduate a stock gift certificate. The graduate can then log on to their website, complete a new account setup and purchase a stock of his choosing with that gift card. It’s a gift that keeps on giving! Check it out at www.stockpilegifts.com.


Whether for new books, clothes or summertime fun after graduation. There isn’t a student out there that wouldn’t appreciate extra money in their pockets!  If you don’t like giving cash you can always grab Visa and MasterCard gift cards!


Students now are able to download textbooks and communicate with teachers via social media and other apps. A tablet is great for a student because it’s lighter, more portable and more convenient than a traditional laptop.  There are plenty of options for graduates from each academic level that will suit their academic needs.


With tablets, computers, phones etc., a great set of headphones is essential for the students and graduates. Listen to music without disturbing anyone or even tune into a webcast or webinar for class. 

Hard Drive:  

Graduates spend a lot of time writing and preparing assignments.  Make sure those items are always backed up by giving your graduate a hard drive to save their work. 


I love books that encourage and help you plan. There are few books on the market now that are perfect for the ambitious graduate.

  • -Dave Ramsey’s “The Graduate’s Survival Guide”                                                                    
  • -Sean Covey’s “the 7 habits of highly effective Teens”


Congratulations to the Class of 2017!!!! Continue to aim high in pursuit of your dreams!

Until next time,

Take Care of yourselves and one another!
