High School Graduation Gifts For Boys Include Dorm Essentials

Some high school graduation gifts for boys are nice to have, but others are essential items that will help them in their daily activities, and make their transition from high school to college that much easier.


 The Best High School Graduation Gifts For Her


Gifts High School Graduates Will Need!

Laptops are a must for any graduate.  The laptop you choose will depend entirely on her needs. That being said, it will need to be portable and fairly light making it easy to carry from one class to the another.

It will need to be able to connect to Wi-Fi, with lots of space to be able to store class notes. Battery length is also very important. If connecting to a power source in class is not possible, then you will need a battery with a long life span.

Whether you choose an ultra-thin laptop, a laptop with a bigger screen and 7.5hrs of battery life,  or a touch screen laptop, your new graduate will definitely need one for her studies at college. 

Below are a couple of my favorites to give you an idea of what is available so that you can make an informed decision going forward.

Essential Hight School Graduation Gifts Guys Don’t Know They Need!


Adidas Adilette Shower Slides

In college one usually shares a bathroom with several others on the floor, and because of this it is always a good idea to shower with slides on to prevent picking up any fungal infections. Adidas has a great shower slide especially for this purpose.

Grad Gifts For High School Guys

You can never have too many bath towels at college. Sometimes you can’t wait for one to dry before needing another. This 3-piece towel set is 100% cotton and includes a bath towel, hand towel, and washcloth. It also comes in many different colors.

Ok, don’t laugh, but this really is one of those dorm essentials that most people overlook. And it’s very important to keep all your trash, and especially old papers in one place otherwise it can become a health and safety hazard.

Rapid Ramen Cooker – Graduation For Boys

Make your favorite brand of ramen in just 2 to 3 minutes with half the sodium, so much healthier. The Ramen Cooker is essential for college student dorm rooms. 

You’ll never have to worry about waiting for water to boil or washing pots, pans, and other dishes. The heat-resistant handles make it easy and safe to remove straight from the microwave.

Over the Fridge Storage Organizer

It might not seem like it, but this over the fridge storage organizer is an essential item if you have a small dorm room, and very limited space. It is a great way to store all your items that don’t require refrigeration.

And, if you haven’t had a chance to buy a small fridge yet for the dorm room, here are a few of my favorites.

45 Second Omelet Maker

You love a veggie omelet in the morning, but stovetop cooking can be a little much when you’re still half asleep–and a hurried pre-work routine leaves little time for culinary bravado.

Step up your breakfast game and make a hearty omelet in 45 seconds with this stoneware clay dish. Just place the ingredients and dish in microwave, follow the included recipe, and you’re well on your way to a well-balanced meal.

Microwave Pasta Pot

Cooking pasta’s not tough, per se, but could it be simpler? We think so. Dorm dwellers and impatient chefs alike will appreciate this cooker’s speedy approach to that whole “making spaghetti” thing.

Just add noodles and water and nuke. It’s faster than the stovetop method, and the flexible lid’s a strainer, too, so you can drain, toss with sauce, and eat straight from the pot.

Eye-Caring LED Desk Lamp

Desk lamps are extremely important especially if your graduate is going to be studying at night. I found this really awesome LED desk lamp which is extremely gentle on the eyes (a very important factor for me). 

With a combination of 5 color modes and 7 brightness levels, the flicker-free light  brightens your space without harming your eyes making it ideal for studying. It also has a built-in USB port for keeping your phone at a full charge and within reach.

If you are a grandparent, aunt, uncle or good friend that stays too far away to attend the graduation party, then a graduation gift basket is always a good idea. This way you can congratulate the high school graduate, and show how much you care and miss them.

      Hi Rowena, so glad you liked my list of gifts for high school graduates. I know right, there are a few items on this list I quite like myself.

  1. Lots of great ideas in this list with something for everyone. It’s particularly important for this year’s graduates to feel special with everything going on in the world.

    1. Yvette's Treasures

      Hi Patrice, I couldn’t agree more. It is a difficult time to graduate, and it needs to be celebrated with a little something extra.

  2. wow, Yve, this is a great list of gifts for high school graduation. To me, a good mug is a good gift, when you can print it with memorable words. Gadget like laptop etc may be good too if we know that the person doesnt’ have it.

    1. Yvette's Treasures

      Hi Sambo, I also like personalizing my gifts if possible. Whether it be t-shirts or mugs. The wording is what matters. Laptops are a bit more expensive which makes them great gifts for parents or family members to buy.

  3. My son will be graduating in a few years so will be very helpful! The coffee mug and the college book would make great comical gifts. The dorm essentials you listed are also a good reminder. I know my son will want the ramen pan since he loves that stuff!

    1. Yvette's Treasures

      Hi Michelle, so glad I’ve been able to give you some gift ideas for when your son graduates. All the best.
