4 minute read

We've reached that time of year when hopeful college graduates leave school to venture into the professional world, and high school graduates are excited to move out of the house and make new friends at college.

 

It can be a stressful time, and every dollar counts. If you have a family member or friend that's about to toss their cap in the air and move to the next phase, consider gifting them something useful. Here are the top gifts any grad would be thrilled to receive.

 

Grad Gift Ideas

SHEEX® Performance Sleepwear

 

After they get their diploma, your grad will spend plenty of time on the couch, surfing job boards, watching movies with a roommate, or perfecting a resume. Give your grad SHEEX® Performance Sleepwear — the ultimate couch uniform. Available for both men and women, our cooling loungewear is unbelievably soft, offering a world of breathability and advanced thermoregulation. Whether they're snoozing or pulling an all-nighter, they'll stay incredibly cool, dry, and comfortable.

 

Noise-Canceling Headphones

 

College courses and job applications require the utmost concentration. If you gift your grad a pair of heavy-duty noise-canceling headphones, they can zone out and power through whatever work the days hold in store for them. Choose modest sizes so the headphones can comfortably fit in a backpack.

 

Sneakers

 

We know high school grads will want a fancy new wardrobe to impress their classmates, but make sure they have at least one pair of comfortable, durable tennis shoes or sneakers for walking to class across campus or trekking to their part-time job.

 

ORIGINAL PERFORMANCE Sheet Set

 

Transitioning into or out of college can be exhausting. Give a recent grad the gift of a restful night's sleep while saving hundreds of dollars on top-tier SHEEX bedding. Our ORIGINAL PERFORMANCE Sheet Set will offer an oasis of cooler nights after long study sessions while reducing the number of sleep disruption — necessary for a well-rested grad.

 

ORIGINAL PERFORMANCE Down Alternative Pillows

 

Whether they're about to embark on college or heading out into the real world, you're going to want this grad to sleep soundly. Help your recent grad dream big ORIGINAL PERFORMANCE Down Alternative Pillows. They're designed to regulate heat while also helping the head stay cool throughout the night for comfortable, uninterrupted sleep.

 

SHEEX Gift Card

 

If you're not sure what to give your recent grad, allow them to choose what they want with a SHEEX Gift Card. That way, it'll eliminate all the guesswork, so they can pick out their favorite color bedding or get the right size cooling pajamas.

A Dinner Celebration

 

Grads can have a lot on their minds between finals, graduation, and making big life decisions. After the clamor has died down, help them hold on to some memories by hosting a dinner celebration with close friends and family. Be sure to bust out your camera!

 

A Helping Hand

 

Whether graduating from high school or college, relocating to or from a dorm is typically part of the deal. With the ceremony coinciding with moving and logistics, grads can be full of stress — make the process easier by offering your services as a mover or driver.

 

Cash

 

While the gift you were thinking about for the recent grad is thoughtful, they'll often need something else. If you're stumped, turn to every young graduate's favorite gift — cash. A check or cash gift will allow them to buy whatever they need: a cooking utensil, new laptop, or fresh order of business cards.

 

Graduation is an exciting time, but as your favorite grad heads into the great unknown, you can help make their transition a smooth one. No matter what the next chapter has in store, you can bet they'll appreciate a set of comfy, thermoregulating SHEEX sheets.
