THE FAIRMONT FIVE rad grad gifts



It's time for Pomp and Circumstance, flower leis and sighs of relief--oh, and it's time to go shopping for the perfect graduation gift for the graduates in your life.  Graduation presents can be tricky since you want the gift to have meaning, be practical, and most of all be something that expresses just how proud you are of the graduates in your life.  There's nothing wrong with gift cards or cash, but there's something more thoughtful about a carefully chosen present.  Here are a few grad gifts I think deserve high honors:

  1. Charitable Gift $20+,Oxfam America
    Bet you never thought of getting your grad a goat?  But, there's a good chance that's just what your social conscious graduate would prefer.  Choose from dozens of gifts that do good and support your graduate's dreams to make a difference.
  2. Mini Plus Brewing System $100, Keurig
    For the dorm-room dweller who’s short on space (and time), this machine has a tiny footprint and brews a great cup in a minute. From the grad gift list at Martha Stewart Living.
  3. Upcycled Wetsuit iPad sleeve $28, UncommongoodsNo matter where the adventures lead, this protective case made from recycled wet suits, will guard his gear. From the grad gift list at Real Simple.
  4. Trail Cargo Shave Kit $60, Fossil
    Sturdy canvas and ample cargo pockets make this shave kit a must-have accessory for college bound dudes.
  5. Collegiate Throw Blanket $56, Stanford bookstore
    If you're sure you know where your high school graduate is headed in the fall, go online and shop that school's bookstore for gifts emblazoned with the school name or mascot, like this super versatile woven afghan from the Stanford University bookstore.
