Choosing a High School Graduation Gift

My boss's nephew is graduating high school this month. I got an invitation. What would be a good graduation gift for him? I haven't had a high school graduation invitation in years and am out of the loop. Help!

I received an invitation to a good friend's daughter's high school graduation last year. I just got her a Target gift card, figuring she could find some way to use it. If she was getting a job, maybe she could get some clothes. If she was going to live in a dorm, she could use it to set up her room. I remember receiving a set of reference books, some jewelry, and cash when I graduated. Most young people probably just look things up on the internet, rather than use books, jewelry is rather personal, but cash can always be used (or a gift card!).

And with what mrs.story referred to as the going trend for the day you could look into getting a gift card for Amazon or even PayPal. I don't know if they have them but they probably do. Otherwise a card with cash is always appreciated.

Thanks. I did cash. No time to hunt a card, and don't know if he will be working or in a dorm or what, so figure cash will work best.


Not even sure what will be near to him in school.
