15. Chalkboard Glasses—When you have a group of friends together and everyone is drinking from the same style of glasses, it's easy to mix up whose glass is whose. Chalkboard glasses solve this problem. People can write their names on their glasses, and the chalk easily washes off later. You also have the option of purchasing chalkboard labels that adhere to the glasses that the gift recipient already owns.
This giant bean bag is big enough for two, but it’s so comfortable they may not want to share it. Study in luxury or take a long nap between exams. Either way, we promise they’ll find a use for this that they soon can’t live without. But beware: just like their last questionable relationship, people have been known to disappear into these for months.
They will make lots of friends in college, and some of them will be grimy as hell. Their roommates’ friends will be even worse. And their roommates will possibly be worse still. This handheld vacuum not only leaves everything it touches spotless, it eliminates most of the things you don’t want to catch while sitting on the couch or walking across the bathroom floor.

This is such a fun DIY gift list! I especially love the boho chic jewelry trays and the birch tree art. It can be hard for me to think of a gift that anyone would like, and home decor is a great idea I hadn’t really thought of. This year, my side of the family is going to try $15 or less gifts for each other–something that will be hard to do without trying to make them instead of buy them. Thanks for the ideas!
For her, it's a cool piece of wearable tech to rock in her new office. For you, it's an investment in her health and peace of mind. This top-of-the-line smartwatch offers virtual coaching for her workouts and even holds more than 300 songs for her exercise soundtrack. The GPS-enabled device holds a 4-day charge, so she can track her bicycle commutes and her weekend runs without losing battery life.
Aaptiv is my very favorite way to exercise. All you need is a smartphone and tablet, and you are instantly given access to thousands of workouts – many of which require very little space or equipment. I use this nearly every day! It is perfect for busy college students because it has workouts that can be as short as nine minutes long. You can get a free 30-day trial here and check out my full review here.
This thing is pretty cool. Only real comments are its a bit akward to hold (and probably use) as a Hammer. Also the knife fitting which is arguably the one that should be most secure/sturdy is poorly placed in my opinion as it sits on the top of most of the other fittings somewhat exposed. Also there doesn't seem to be a great way to extend the corkscrew (you have to catch it by the edge of the sharp tip and pull it out carefully so as to not poke yourself.
9. Things to use in their new city or at graduate school. Is your graduate moving to Boston, Washington, D.C. or New York City? Consider buying them subway fare cards or even a monthly pass. Other locale-specific gifts, like a Zagat book or Thomas Guide, can be incredibly helpful—and appreciated!—as your graduate starts their new life in a new city.
Have you blessed her with grandchildren? If you have, then you have already given her the greatest gift of all, but she still definitely wouldn’t mind additional evidence of the existence of those adorable moppets. She can use it to taunt Barb, her workplace nemesis whose no-good son Brad has yet to even have a serious girlfriend. Giving someone a picture of yourself may seem narcissistic, but, trust me, your Mom won’t think so.

“Wedding registry–type things make sense,” adds Cassidy Olsen, another soon-to-be graduate of Tufts, “because a lot of us are moving into places for the first time permanently. I know nothing about glassware, so I couldn’t say what glassware, but a combo of drinking glasses and wine glasses would be good.” We here at the Strategist love the Bormioli Rocco Bodega short tumblers, which do double duty as wine glasses and drinkware.
