We probably all know at least one person that’s either graduating from high school or college this year. Have you bought them a gift yet? Consider their needs and personality. Maybe they’re moving out into the world on their own and you want to give them a little something to help them get all set up… maybe they’re staying close to home, but use technology to stay totally connected while on the go… OR, maybe the grad in your life needs technology and small appliances that play to their healthy, athletic nature. Freshman 15? No way!
Best Buy has great gifts for all graduates. Personally, the ideal gifts for me would have been new appliances and gadgets to equip my dorm room. A fridge, microwave, a nice Ninja blender for those quick morning smoothies, a coffeemaker, and a TV and video game console would make me the most popular roommate, don’t you think? On move in day (way back when!) all I had was a big suitcase, a clunky desktop computer, an alarm clock, and a small stereo.
Here are some more gift ideas from the Best Buy Gift Center…
