Tis the season of commencement! Throughout the months of May and June several mobs of high school and college students graduate and after years of hard work, they deserve something extra special. We all know how easy it is to hand over an envelope with a wad of cash and call it a day, but if you want to make their transition into adult life as smooth as butter – you should get them something they need and will benefit from on the daily.
Whether they are about to jet set off for a gap year or are heading straight into the workforce, they need some luxury staples for their exciting new life. That said, mark their achievement and welcome them to the real world with these 4 grad gifts they will be able to use forever.
First impressions are everything and if you want your grad to rock their future interviewer’s socks off – they are going to need to dress the part. A quality leather padfolio says a lot about wits and it’s not something your grad might think they need until it’s the night before their first interview. This padfolio will help your grad be professionally prepared while looking swift at all times. Get the Royce Leather Executive Zip Around Padfolio ($131.19). It’s a lightweight, pro-level organizer that is 100% practical for work, travel and, yes, play for the future, too.
Real talk: Has anyone ever gone wrong when gifting or receiving a classic genuine Italian leather belt? I think not. A leather belt is a timeless staple and will be an item your grad will have in their closet for years and years to come. The Royce Leather Airport Security Checkpoint Friendly ($56) has a detachable chrome buckle which makes it incredibly easy to remove when going through airport security….and side note, a gentleman should never leave the house without a belt.
Back in the day (and maybe still today), the go-to grad present norm, especially for men, was a classic watch. While watches do make an excellent gift choice change it up a bit and get them something more clever and equally beneficial like a watch organizer! The Royce Leather Watch Cufflink Box ($79.99) is a brilliant solution for their most sumptuous accessory pieces to stay all in one place and not lost in translation or stuck between their car seats. This organizer holds cufflinks, watches, and jewelry alike.
Take your wallet game to the next level with a wallet that carries cards, a passport AND has RFID blocking technology. If you ask me, a wallet like that is classic no-brainer grad gift perfect for entry into adult life.
P.S. For those who don’t know what the heck RFID (Radio Frequency Identification Data) is, it’s a blocking technology designed to secure your private information even remotely.
Are they about to jetset off for a much-deserved gap year? Here’s five gifts your grad needs before they set sail!
