Graduation is an important milestone and accomplishment for any student. It’s a large stepping stone on the lengthy road that will shape their future. Do you have someone special in your life who has graduated or is preparing to graduate this year? Best Buy has a great selection of gifts from the gadget loving grad to the grad that is getting ready for the “big” move out of mom and dad’s house. Every graduate could benefit from a laptop or desktop PC. While these are essential for working on academics outside of class, they also provide a way to keep in touch with family and friends who may be back home. The first year of college can be tough, especially when it comes to being away from those that love and support you. Help make the transition easy!
Here are a few of my top picks for the “Networking Grad” who loves technology and high tech gadgets.
1. Lenovo Yoga 2 13″ Touch-Screen Laptop: every student needs a computer for research, homework, and assignments. This is the gift that will keep on giving year after year.
2. iTunes Gift Card: an iTunes music card is ideal for the grad that may already have everything they need.
3. Seagate Backup External USB Portable Hard Drive: assists in backing up important files from the computer and can be taken on the go.
4. Jawbone MINI Jambox Wireless Speaker: this mini portable speaker streams music from your smartphone, tablet, and MP3 device.
5. Google Chromecast: allows you to watch videos and listen to music by syncing to the television.
6. Apple iPhone 5s: makes keeping in touch with family and friends easy through phone calls, text messages, social media applications, and face time.
