Best Buy Has the Best Gifts for Grads

Are you one of the many parents "celebrating" the bittersweet event that is graduation? Thankfully, my oldest just graduated the first grade, so I have a long time to cherish my "baby" before he is all grown up and moving on to college, but chances are you do have a grad in your family(close friends), just as I do.

My baby sister just graduated, and I have to admit, while I am tremendously proud of her, it is a very sad thing to realize that she has basically made the transition into adulthood. It feels like I am loosing my child almost.

Though as sad as it can be, it is also exciting, especially for her. She is off to embark on a brand new adventure, and while we will always be there for her, she'll be mostly on her own for the very first time. I can't imagine sending her into the world unprepared, so I am incredibly thankful to Best Buy; they have everything she could need and more.


They have great lists of gifts for any grad persona, my sister happens to fall into the Moving Out Persona, which has an awesome list of recommended gifts:

Stone Bake Pizza Oven
Amazon Fire TV
Ninja Blender
4-Slice Toaster Oven
Beats by Dr. Dre Pill Portable Stereo Speaker
Samsung 32” Class LED 1080p Smart HDTV
Sony Smart Wi-Fi Built-In Blu-ray Player
Game of Thrones Season 3 Blu-ray & DVD
LG Microwave + Pizza Oven
Frigidaire 3.1 Cu. Ft. Compact Refrigerator
iTunes Gift Card $50
Xbox One Console
Xbox One Titanfall
Keurig Elite Single-Serve Brewer
Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 - 16GB Tablet
Zaggkeys Folio Keyboard Case
Asus Transformer T100 32GB Tablet
Lenovo IdeaTab A1000 16GB Tablet
HP Slate 7 Plus 7 Tablet
HP Envy Wireless e-All-in-One Printer
Tech21 Shell Case for Samsung Galaxy S5 Cell Phones
mophie Juice Pack Powerstation Mini
Hoover WindTunnel 2 Vacuum
Hamilton Beach Set & Forget Stay or Go Slow Cooker
Thule Crossover Backpack

Any of these items would make a fantastic gift. In fact, I wish I was a grad so I could get one(or more) of these. Any of these would be wonderful to ensure my sister is prepared for like on her own, but a few fit her especially well, like the LG Microwave + Pizza oven(how cool is that?) and the Ninja Blender, not to mention the HP Envy All-In-One printer to help her with any projects, papers, etc, she may need for classes.

Best Buy has all the best prices on these items too, which is great, but if you are looking for something really affordable, they have an amazing selection of grad gifts under $100 or even $50. The Oster Blender for example is under $25, what an amazing value.

If you still need more ideas on what to get the grad in your life, check out the Best Buy Gift Center to see even more fabulous suggestions.


Just remember that while you may be scared or excited or nostalgic about the grad in your life starting this new chapter, they are probably feeling the same things, tenfold whether they admit it or not. And no matter how much you will miss them, the pride you feel for them is overwhelming.

While they must already know that, gifts can be a great way to show just how much you care sometimes when there are no words powerful enough to capture the full weight of your feelings. Gifts are also a great way to show you care without pouring out too much awkward emotions during an already intense moment.

No matter what kind of grad you have, whatever the relationship and what you are looking for, I can promise that Best Buy has everything you could want and more, at the best prices around. There service is top of the line too, which is great when you need help(which you cannot expect at most stores).

I'd love to hear a store about the grad in your life, your own graduation or any gift ideas you may have. It's never to early to start preparing. They grow up so fast.
