The Graduate:
8 Gifts That’ll Set Them Up for
Success

After years of term papers, finals, majors, minors, GPAs, and
rest-of-your-life questions, graduation day is a big deal for good
reason. To make the school-to-real-life transition that much smoother,
we’ve corralled the most useful tools, tricked-out tech, and grown-up
gifts. In other words, equal parts pomp and circumstance.
