Graduation Gift Ideas for Boston Grads

If you have a grad in your circle and want to give a gift that will actually benefit them, then this article is for you. But what do you get for a Boston grad that hasn’t already been gifted every graduation season before this? We have a few graduation gift ideas in mind for you:


  • Financial Literacy Course:  The next journey likely comes with more financial freedom. Help them avoid (any more) debt by giving the gift of knowledge that will serve them for a lifetime.
  • Teach Them How To Cook: Many recent grads are used to eating quick meals that require little or no prep. Considering teaching them the art and practical skill of cooking. Alternatively, enroll them in a cooking masterclass or buy them a recipe book!
  • Rail Pass: The world is their oyster and they need a way to explore it! A rail pass can help them with commuting costs and familiarize them with all the wonderful places our city (or country) has to offer.
  • Personalized Journal: Whether it’s for memories, goal setting, or just a safe place to store their thoughts, a journal is a great and underrated gift that can also become a valuable tool. (P.S.: There are lots of different kinds out there from blank to planners to goal oriented.)

These are just a few graduation gift ideas that will go a long way in guiding your grad.
