Another year has come and gone, and with another school year in the books comes a swarm of friends and loved ones who will be graduating. Our refrigerator is covered with friend’s graduation invitations! With many graduations to attend I thought it would be helpful to put together a graduation gift guide for anyone who might be in search of a graduation gift.
When I started putting this gift guide together I thought back to gifts I had received as a high school graduate. These are a few items I believe to be very useful and practical for someone going off to college. Yet these are not just for a high school grad, but will also be practical for a college graduate. All these gifts are roughly around fifty dollars, yet they are items your graduate will use on a weekly, if not a daily basis. I put hearts near the items I believe your graduate will love, as well as use constantly!

Pray for our Graduates
Remember to be in constant prayer for our graduates! For many of them will be heading out to make their own decisions for the very first time. If any of these graduates are under your wing, you being their mentor, then I encourage constant intentionality with that student. Check in constantly, continue to love them and care about their influencers in college. This is a huge step for them, may God continue to be at the forefront of their minds, in all their decision-making. Encourage them with this verse, include it in your gift to them.
I will praise the LORD, who counsels me; even at night my heart instructs me. I keep my eyes always on the LORD. With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken. (Psalm 16:7-8)
