Graduation Tech Gifts That Make the Grade

Graduation Tech Gifts That Make the Grade

Do you have teenage kids about to graduate high school or college and are stumped on what to buy them to celebrate their milestone?

Choosing a graduation gift for your child can be hard, especially in our world of rapidly advancing technology. Mobile and tech can be tough fields to choose from.

No matter your budget, check out this guide to tech items and mobile accessories to please the grad on your list.

Tablet Technology

According to Pew Research Center, 50% of young adults 18-29 own and use a Tablet. If your grad doesn’t already have a Tablet, there’s a good chance they’d have great use for one. As mobile technology and apps advance, Tablets are increasingly able to do nearly everything a laptop or desktop computer can. They are slimmer than laptops and more capable than phones, allowing for personal and scholarly pursuits in a sleek, compact device.

Even better: you can add a Tablet to your existing wireless data plan for browsing and use on-the-go, wherever your grad may need to go.

Charge Up

Nearly everyone with a mobile device can benefit from an extra charger.

Whether it’s an extra cable and wall charger set or a portable battery to take on traveling adventures, enabling your grad to stay connected with their phone is always a useful gift.

Fitness Tracking

Encourage health and fitness with one of the most popular tech tools around. A hot item among health-conscious millennials is fitness wearables like the Gear Fit 2.

If fitness isn’t their thing, check out the smartwatches and other wearables to help your grad maximize their tech and keep up with the latest trends.

Keep Track of Their Valuables

Teenagers can be forgetful - and what better way to help them out than with tech?

Devices like the Find Tracker can help your kid keep track of their valuables with their Smartphone, Tablet or computer by attaching a GPS tracker to whatever they want to track. If the item is misplaced or even stolen, they can easily track where it has gone using online tools.

Finding a gift for your grad can be a challenge, but it doesn’t have to be when you stick to useful tech products that make their lives easier.
