I can hardly believe it...My teen is now officially a high school student. He just graduated the 8th grade, and will be a Freshman in the fall. (How did that even happen?!) I also have a "baby cousin" who is now 18 and just graduated high school. This too is making me feel really, really old. Ancient at the ripe old age of 32...Who knew?
Anyway, with all the recent graduations, I got to thinking about the future and all the things Kyle will need when he makes the move to college. I am hoping he chooses to stay home and attend a local school since I know I won't be ready to let go of my baby, but I'm sure he will prefer dorm living or an apartment once he's 18. I am pretty certain that he won't want Sophie and Xander cramping his style.
The Grad who is moving out for the first time will need plenty of things to make their new residence feel like a home. Whether it's a toaster, an Amazon Fire TV or an XBOX One for entertainment, you can find tons of amazing gifts for your college-bound grad at Best Buy.
One thing I would have LOVED to have when I moved out on my own is a Stone Bake Pizza Oven. It seems that teens and people in their college years eat a LOT of pizza, and I was no different. If I had owned one of these nifty pizza ovens back then, I would have definitely saved a ton of money by making it myself!
Here are some more gifts to consider when shopping for a graduate that will be moving out on their own:
Best Buy also has a wonderful selection of gifts under $50 that the grad in your life is sure to love. I would especially like to recommend the Mr. Coffee 12-Cup Coffeemaker. As we all know, college students pull some pretty long days between their classwork, working, and partying, so coffee will be a must when they're burning the midnight oil or cramming for a test.
Here are the top gift ideas for grads under $50:
