Your Guide to Gifts for Grads at Best Buy

I took an IBM ThinkPad to college with me as my “big gift” from my parents. At the time (1994), this techy gadget set me apart from most of my fellow students. Few had so much as a typewriter, let alone a computer, let alone a laptop!

I couldn’t even get email on it – wait, did we even have email? Oh yes, we did. I’m pretty sure I used my laptop as a glorified electronic typewriter. Except I could play solitaire. Oh yes, that!

Today’s grads likely already have more technology in their cell phone than I carried with me to college in my big purple laptop case! But when it comes to your grad moving out into that big wide world on their own? Well, they’ll need more than just a laptop (or a fancy phone!).

The Greatest Gifts for Grads at Best Buy

Today’s grads are moving on, moving up and… moving out… give them a gift they’ll enjoy in their new space! If I were moving out for the first time, this would be my favorite gift:

Keurig Elite Single-Serve Brewer

 Wow. I bet you didn’t see that coming (says the coffee-drinking, coffee loving, coffee-coffee-everything mom!). Late night marathons writing essays and studying for exams? The Keurig Elite can brew up coffees as fast as your grad can drink them. And not just coffee – teas, cocoa, and ice beverages too.

(And, now you’ll always know what to send in those care packages! K-cups!). I sure wish Keurig brewers had been around when I was in college!

My favorite gift under $50?

The Oster My Blend Blender!

Just $32.99 and your grad will stay healthy mixing up single-serve green smoothies to their heart’s content!gifts for grads at best buy
