What’s Hot/What’s Not: 21st Century Graduation Gifts

By | March 25, 2011

If you received a college graduation gift it was probably a cross pen set, cufflinks, or a VHS player. But what do you get the college grad who grew up watching The Simpsons on DVD? Here is a list of our top five gift suggestions:

  1. An iPad or smartphone. Your graduate can stay connected to classmates by checking out the College of Charleston Alumni Association Facebook page or following the College on Twitter.
  2. Something for their new apartment like gift cards to Ikea and Lowes, or even a College of Charleston Tervis Tumbler.
  3. A digital photo frame. Don’t forget to preload one of your son or daughter walking across the Cistern.
  4. A diploma frame to proudly display the College of Charleston degree for all to see! CofC diplomas are an unusual shape, to buy one readymade visit:  cofc.bncollege.com.
  5. A gift to the Parents’ Fund in honor of your graduating senior or their favorite professor. For more information visit www.cofc.edu/parent giving programs.
