There is nothing more joyous to a parent than seeing their young man or woman grow and begin schooling. Your joy will probably be unbound when your son or daughter graduates high school.

I remember my father walked so proudly with my exam result slips to tell his friends that I was graduating from a prestigious high school. Your young man or woman will undoubtedly need appreciation for taking their studies seriously and channeling their path to adulthood.

But, what is the best memorable gift that you can give a young man or woman entering high school? When you Google this subject, you will be flooded with funny ideas, some of which are irrelevant. This article will provide five practical gifts your graduating young man or woman will appreciate and find useful.

Without further ado, let’s get into it


A laptop is every graduate’s dream. Many students acquire a laptop in their final year before heading to college, but if they could have it at the end, they will still undoubtedly be elated.

A laptop will help them with their projects and keeping notes. Your young man or woman will find it easier to research difficult subjects they do not understand in class. Furthermore, having a laptop makes your young man or woman look cool among their peers, thus helping build their self-esteem.

Having a laptop early will equip your young man or woman for a technological world. They will know how to use Microsoft office, complex excel sheets, and graphic designs, which are essential skills in the job market.

It could also allow them to get into learning about business. Since new college students are young and still have their parents to lean on, it can be a great time to start learning about investing and stocks or cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin. This could be a huge advantage in helping them financially stable later on in life.

Your young man or woman can also use a laptop to connect with friends and access online group assignments. With most lessons done virtually since the pandemic, a laptop will come in handy, helping your son or daughter access these valuable materials.

A laptop also gives your graduating young man or woman a measure of freedom to watch their favorite movies. Or, they could play video games as so many love to do. This can be helpful, as college can be a really stressful time, and everyone needs some way to relax.


More and more people are loving bicycles as a means of transportation. Instead of making your graduate pay bus fare or train money every day, why not invest in a good bike and present this as a gift?

A bike will save you money now that gas prices seem out of control. Moreover, daily riding a bicycle to school is a form of exercise. Your graduate will burn calories and keep fit and healthy with a bicycle.

The United States and other countries can have somewhat high obesity rates starting even at an early age due to eating junk food and not exercising. You can change that by presenting your graduate with a bicycle.

With a bicycle, your young man or woman can join friends for a weekend ride. Having a bicycle also enhances a sense of responsibility since they will know where to take it for repair and save for such expenses.

A bicycle is also long-lasting, meaning your graduate will remember it as a gift longer. They will likely build a good relationship with you from this gift. Ensure that the bicycle is top quality with protective gear; younger people tend to ride fast, which could cause an accident.

Portable Charger

Almost everyone has a smartphone nowadays. However, Smartphones drain their batteries fast, especially when accessing the internet.

A portable charger will prove helpful for your graduate to keep their phones charged even when at school. Carrying a charger to school may not be practical, but with a portable power bank, your son or daughter can have uninterrupted access to information and conversations with friends.

More importantly, if there is ever an emergency heaven forbid, they will know they have the ability to call for help, or at least reach out to someone if they need to.

A high-capacity power bank (500 MAH) and multi-port can help charge your young man or woman’s phone, laptop, or camera. Since portable chargers are small, they can carry them in a backpack or pocket.

A portable power bank ensures your graduate can reach you anytime, assuring them of your love and care. Many people’s lives have been saved because they had a power bank to keep their phones on, so never underestimate its value.

Noise-canceling earphones

Noise-canceling earphones may seem unnecessary for a young man or woman entering college, but they can prove valuable in many ways. Many graduates love listening to music as they ride to school or on their way home. The calming effect of music enhances their ability to study.

Your young man or woman may also discover their musical talent by listening to uninterrupted music. The music industry is lucrative, with many making millions of dollars.

Furthermore, the professor may give some audio notes, and noise-canceling earphones are what your graduate would appreciate in helping them focus on the lecture. Additionally, many college students turn to YouTube to sharpen their knowledge of what they studied in class, and earphones will play a vital role in learning.

Noise-canceling earphones are also classy; I would kill to have one of these during my time. If your young man or woman loves music, buy them one of these, and they will forever be grateful for your thoughtful gift.

Who will not want to listen to calming country songs or soft rock to calm their nerves after a bad day at school? Your gift can be part of your young man or woman’s stress remedies. And believe me, someone new to college is going to need some stress relief…

Some smartwatches have Bluetooth connections to the phone, which make it possible to play music and connect to the phone. Additionally, a smartwatch can record lessons in class for reference at home.

If the smartwatch has health features, such as recording heart rate and strides made, it could motivate your young man or woman to exercise. They will know how many calories they are burning every day.
