9 of the Best Tech Gifts for Grads

It’s that season again—graduations are just around the corner. If you have loved ones celebrating this spring, consider these fun and useful tech gifts to mark a graduation.

  1. Social Print StudioMagnets from Instagram photos: Order magnets made from favorite Instagram (or other square) photos at Social Print Studio. Packages start at $14 for 10 2”x2” magnets.
  2. Personalized phone case or Apple Watch band: There are so many cool designs to choose from, or create your own just for the graduate at Casetify (various prices).
  3. Monogrammed iPhone case: This beautiful leather case is a professional-looking gift for your favorite grad. ($29.99)
  4. Amazon Tap: This Amazon Alexa-powered portable Bluetooth speaker will sound great in a dorm room, first apartment, or even on the go. A gift any graduate would be happy to have. ($129.99)
  5. Amazon Fire TV Stick: Amazon’s streaming solution is an easy answer for media streaming like Netflix, Hulu, and many more services, and it’s insanely portable. ($49.99 with voice-activated remote)
  6. Single-cup coffee brewer: There are so many choices here we’re hard-pressed (or should that be French-pressed?) to pick just one, but there’s an option out there perfect for your grad. Some use traditional ground coffee, some take popular K-cups and most offer nice bells and whistles to meet every caffeinated need.
  7. Pebble WatchA smartwatch: Apple Watch ($299 and up at Apple.com/watch) has made a big splash, but Pebble ($99.99 and up) is a great option too, plus it connects with Android or iPhone.
  8. Instant film camera: Remember Polaroids? Instant-development cameras are the hot new thing again. Check out the Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 (Around $55 at many retailers) and some film to help your graduate capture fun moments and share them with friends.
  9. Voyager bag with optional wifi: If your favorite grad is on the go and needs to stay connected, the Voyager weekender bag with optional wi-fi ($725 at Voyager.media/) might fit the bill. Designed to pack your clothes and your tech essentials, the Voyager bag can also hold a customized Karma wi-fi hotspot.

Cue the Pomp and Circumstance!
