This year my own son has graduated from high school and has already moved out even. Wow – seems impossible, but it is true. While T really loves technology items, he actually has a lot of things already so after checking out Best Buy’s Grad Gift Guide I found some practical gift ideas in the Moving Out section of the guide.
Let’s face it, young adults his age love pizza but it can get pretty pricey. They have a Stone Bake Pizza Oven that I know T would get a lot of use of. One thing he has always been good at is being a good host when he has guests over and providing them with food and drinks. With this he can cook frozen pizzas or make his own creations because he always enjoyed homemade pizza night when he lived at home.
There are a lot of other great gift ideas for the graduate who is moving out on their own or headed off to college too. Such as…
- Amazon Fire TV
- Ninja Blender
Everyone needs a blender!
- 4-Slice Toaster Oven
- Beats by Dr. Dre Pill Portable Stereo Speaker
- Samsung 32” Class LED 1080p Smart HDTV
He would really love this too – I may have to add that to the gift list from Mom & Dad
- Sony Smart Wi-Fi Built-In Blu-ray Player
- Game of Thrones Season 3 Blu-ray & DVD
- LG Microwave + Pizza Oven
- Frigidaire 3.1 Cu. Ft. Compact Refrigerator
Great for those headed off to college in the fall
- iTunes Gift Card $50
- Xbox One Console
- Xbox One Titanfall
- Keurig Elite Single-Serve Brewer
This is another great item. T grew up with a Keurig at home so I’m sure he would appreciate this – although he may be swiping K-Cups when he visits us!
- Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 – 16GB Tablet
- Zaggkeys Folio Keyboard Case
- Asus Transformer T100 32GB Tablet
- Lenovo IdeaTab A1000 16GB Tablet

Okay, this is tech, but he needs a printer
