Looking for graduation gifts for high school and college graduates?

There is a good reason they call these ceremonies "commencement exercises."  Graduation is not the end; it's the beginning.  ~ Orrin Hatch

College students are entering probably the best years of their life and need a jump start. Give them gifts that will help them. Ask any graduate and they will say that they would love cold hard cash as a gift. Although, graduation gifts like savings bonds and mutual funds can be good alternatives to cash.

For those graduates that have everything it sure is hard to think of what to give. I have found in my years of gift giving that some special keepsakes are often appreciated especially photo albums!! You can go the traditional route like the one below...

Or gift this beautiful Digital Photo frame. They will be able to enjoy their favorite memories in vibrant color and crisp detail on the 10"1 LCD. The fun part of this frame is that it can be changed by the flick of a remote! Yes it comes with a remote control.

Don't underestimate the advantage of international travel in helping to round out their education and broaden their horizons.

Or how about an entertainment package via Apple? For those moving into a new apartment there’s really no reason to sign up for cable tv anymore. With Apple TV you can stream shows from iTunes, Netflix, MLB.TV and other subscription services. The ever popular YouTube is always free. With Apple TV you are also able to stream your own HD videos from your mobile devices using AirPlay over your Wi-Fi network. In fact, the Apple TV makes a great companion for your iPad as it will send movies, music, photos and video games to the TV screen using Apple’s AirPlay technology. No subscription needed.

I can guarantee that the new grad is not going to go buy this for themselves! So gift one to them!
