Buying graduation gifts for guys can be overwhelming. Here are 27 of the best graduation gifts for him he’ll absolutely love.
We all know how difficult it can be when it comes to getting boys anything. Who would have thought? I have two brothers and they both are equally picky on what to get for themselves.
So, to make it easier for you, this post will show you exactly what gifts to get a recent graduate that they will 100% love and use almost EVERYDAY.
BEST GRADUATION GIFTS FOR HIM
1. Personalized Wallet
Wallets are every guy’s best friend. If you happen to give them the one they love, you know they will use it for the rest of their life! Especially the ones with his initials on them, they will totally love and use them!
This one has made about 50,000+ sales on Etsy and about 12,000 reviews which is crazy! 🤯🤯
2. Vintage Tee
Vintage is very much in trend right now. And these vintage tees are the best gifts to give any guy. They are basic and something that they will wear almost every day.
3. Custom Key Chain
I don’t know any guy that does not own a car or has multiple keys in their pockets. This key chain will help them make sure everything is in place and also keep track of all the important keys.
I also like that you can customize this key chain with his initials and D.O.B or anything he would like the keychain to say!
4. Wooden Docking Station
It’s no surprise that most boys have a messy room… try getting him things that will help him keep his things organized and this is perfect for keeping all the essentials in one place.
This way he can easily access them without having to look around every time.
5. Ray-Ban Glasses
If you know guys, you know how much they love RayBan. It’s their go-to brand for sunglasses so this is a gift they will absolutely love and use.
AirPods are by no doubt everybody’s favorite thing to have. I haven’t met any student that does not love them so this is the best gift to give him as it will help him a lot especially if he goes for a run or gym.
7. LED Lights
I’m 99% sure he already has them in their room but if he doesn’t then get them for him ASAP! They are super popular right now and every student loves to decorate their room with them.
And I’m sure he’s probably asking (or secretly hoping) for it as well.
8. Baseball Cap
A baseball cap is one of the simple yet useful gifts to give a guy. You have no idea how much they LOVE them! Get them 10 of these are they’ll wear each and every one of them.

9. Tool Kit
You know when someone gets you a tool kit, you have truly grown up :/
After graduating, he is most likely to move into a dorm room or an apartment and there will be times where he might need to fix a few things here and there. This tool kit will help him – I know that because my dad has a tool kit from his college years (no kidding, it’s very old but still useful!)
10. Apple Watch
Apple Watch is the rage right now for all the students and for good reasons! This is one of the gifts he will truly appreciate because it will make his life so much easier. A bit pricy but definitely consider getting him this.
Backpacks are essential for every student. You want to make sure you have given him a backpack that is small and has space to fit things.
This one from Amazon is really good for its reasonable price and has enough space to fit a laptop or iPad (which is another essential for every student!).
12. Running Shoes
If he loves to go for a run in the morning before classes, then he is probably looking for shoes that are lightweight and comfortable.
These shoes have more than 2,000 views on Amazon and many customers are happy with their purchase so you know that he will love them!
13. Hydro Flask
While we are on the topic of getting him running shoes, don’t forget to get him a hydro flask as well! I asked my guy friends and they said this is a must for them and they take it whenever they go to the gym.
14. A Nice Watch
Even though Apple Watch is the game right now, if he is looking for a simple watch that symbolizes quality then this is the best option to go for.
15. Portable Charger
I have this portable charger and it has SAVED me so many times. Whether he is in high school or college he needs this. We all hate it when our phone dies when we forget to charge it the night before or have an uber to call.
This portable charger will make his life SO much easier.
16. Phone Case
When it comes to giving boys a phone case, they prefer something simple yet bold. This phone case is very popular and I have read many good reviews about it.
I also like that this case has a cardholder at the back to keep your student ID because we. need. it. 24/7.
17. Travel Bag
If after graduation he’s planning to travel, this is the best travel bag to gift him. It is durable and easy to carry around. Plus, you can even customize it with his initial which is awesome!
18. Perfume Set
When in doubt about what to get, just give them a good quality perfume set. Boys love to smell rich and would appreciate it when they use it (which is every day).
As a student, coffee turns into WATER for us. But getting Starbucks every day can cost a lot of and that is exactly when Keurig becomes our best friend!
This will save them a lot of time and money so you already know this is something they will definitely use haha.
20. Carhartt Beanie
Carhartt beanies are the rage right now! I see almost every guy wearing them so this is definitely something he will totally love and wear.
It’s very basic and looks plain simple which is exactly what every guy wants.
Sweatpants feel so comfy! And they are every guys favorite clothing material. Get him 10 of these and I bet he’ll love them all.
22. LED Keyboard
If he’s a gamer you will make his life by giving him this gift! Any gamers’ dream is to have the best looking keyboard and these LED ones are super popular. He will love them for sure and it’s SO worth it for the price!
23. Blue Light Blocking Glasses
We students spend most of our day sitting near our laptop/phone screen and our eyes are begging for some sort of shield. And let me tell you, these blue light glasses are lifesavers!
Ps. I own these exact pairs of glasses and guess who does not get those ugly red lines around the eyes anymore 😉.
24. Wireless Headphones
Oh my! This is my favorite gift to give any guy. They LOVE good headphones and the ones that are wireless? They will scream with joy!
If you really can’t figure out what to get him, just hand him some cash to get something for himself.
This will also allow him the flexibility to choose whatever he deems is right for him.
26. Monopoly Game
My brother has this and he takes it with him every time he has plans with the boys. Giving him a monopoly game will make time spent with the boys unforgettable. It will also be a fun game to play late at night in dorm rooms!
27. Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker
Bluetooth speakers are one of the best gifts to give students. These ones are waterproof and portable which makes them even perfect!
He can easily carry it around with him. Andd jam to his favorite songs on the go!
These are the best graduation gifts for him he actually needs.
