Gifts for the Grad

Present ideas for 5 types of fresh graduates

Text: Deneb R. Batucan


WHAT comes after the endless paperwork, thesis, clearance signing, and so many in between? Graduation day! It’s the most anticipated day for any student who longs for that heavenly piece of paper that signifies all the work made during the college years. It’s a happy and momentous event that every hardworking student deserves.

With that in mind, some kind of reward is in order for your diligent graduate. SunStar Weekend’s Deneb R. Batucan shows some gift ideas for these familiar types of graduates:

The Fitness Buff

Salomon Sense Marin:
for light trail running

Graduation is not the end but the beginning of something new. And for the Fitness Buff, keeping the body fit will not end once the toga hat is thrown in the air. Perhaps give them a gift certificate for a Citigym membership or a pair of Salomon running shoes from the Primer Group of Companies.

The Achiever

Men’s Chesapeake Multi-function: taking you from work to play
Kia Picanto 5-door Hatchback:
sporty and stylish

Bringing home the highest grades would really make every parent proud — and perhaps more extravagant when it comes to graduation gifts. Gateway Motors have great cars fit for first-time owners, like the Kia Picanto. A beautiful timepiece for one’s wrist would also be a great gift that could last for years.

The Livewire

Fujifilm X-A3: retrodesigned everyday cam
GoPro Hero5: powerful yet easy to use

The Livewire’s schoolmates, his main audience, are going their own paths, but that doesn’t mean they won’t be able to see his antics outside the classroom. Give the Livewire a whole new platform for his brand of comedy with the handy Fujifilm X-A3 or a GoPro Hero5 from Macy’s where he can take videos and pictures of his everyday wits.

The Artist

Wacom Intuos Pro Paper Edition: redifining the pro standard

Any artist would love to get art supplies, but since they are graduating, let’s take it up a notch. Perhaps let the artist go digital with a latest version of a Wacom graphic tablet or licensed Adobe Creative Suite program.

The Stylista

Royal Gem Amethyst Earrings: absolutely enchanting

The Stylistas reinvent beauty, and since they are graduating, a more classic and grownup look is in order. Give them a beautiful piece of jewelry from Royal Gem or maybe help them get a more professional wardrobe from H&M.
