Gifts for Your Fancy Grad!

1. CASH.
Yes, it seems to be one of those "impersonal" gifts, but trust me any grad (high school or college) will definitely appreciate it and relieve some of the pressures of the future.

2. Gift Cards
Okay, again this may seem impersonal, but at the same time it allows the grad to be in control of what he/she receives in the respect of what he/she needs. Gas? Clothes? School supplies? Groceries? Furniture? Try these fine places for gift cards!

5. A Computer

6. Cleaning Supplies
As much as this might make the grad moan and groan at the party, or even look at you with those eyes full of disappointment but a grin carved into his face, he will realize how much of an awesome gift this is when his dorm is the only one without mold and a charge at the end of the term of uncleanliness.
>Vacuum cleaner
>Toilet brush
>Air fresheners
>Dust pan
>Trash can

7. Cookbooks
Whether the grad is headed to college or to the real world, a cookbook with quick, easy and cheap recipes will be a lifesaver. Not only will he be eating healthier, but it'll save a huge chunk of change. These cookbooks seem pretty rad.
