Gift Ideas for Graduation High School Seniors

The school year is wrapped up and it’s a bitter sweet time for many graduating high school seniors. This year has been a particularly hard year for graduating  seniors with the distant learning taking place and their graduation ceremonies being postponed. Even though many graduation ceremonies are postponed until June, it’s important to not forget about those who graduate! It is customary to get a small gift for the graduating seniors that are close to you. Not sure what to get? Read on to get a few suggestions from Fort Wood Hotels.

Amazon Prime Subscription 

Did you know you can gift an annual Amazon Prime Membership? Any graduate would love to have these perks! Amazon Prime has many great features your graduate will love — free shipping, streaming video subscription, and you can even rent or purchase text books typically at a significantly reduced cost!


If you don’t have time to pick something up or you’re really not sure what your graduate would utilize the most, cash is always a great option. A great way to customize this gift that won’t cost you much is by including a card with some advice for the future. What would you have told yourself when you graduated if you could go back? Write this in the card, include some cash and you’ve got the perfect gift!


Is your senior heading off to a collage campus? A bike can come in handy when trying to get around campus. With the buildings spread out and limited parking, having a bike on campus can speed up your class transition time.


If your senior is heading to collage, a new laptop is a great gift! This may be a little out your price range, but you can team up with other family members to purchase a new laptop together. Your graduate will thank you!

TV Streaming Service 

Typically collage students or those who are new to living on their own are on a limited budget. Give them a way to relax and unwind by purchasing them a streaming service! Pro Tip — If you are currently paying for your own subscription, you can typically add another user to your plan for just a couple dollars instead of paying for a new account.

Coffee Maker 

Having the ability to make a late night cup of joe can be a life saver when you’re trying to finish up school work! A single serve coffee maker is an excellent gift for a collage graduate!
