By Nadine Bubeck – Arizona Foothills Magazine

Is your baby graduating from preschool…or college? Here are unique finds for grduates of any age. Spoil and celebrate your child’s accomplishment!

For the bookworm…

So much pressure is put on grads to figure out what they want to do with their lives. Finding the Wow shows them that you can change direction at any point in life – and not to take themselves so seriously.

For the future investor…

This option is ideal for helping Millennials jumpstart their financial future – Stockpile, a gift card for stock. From Apple to eBay, Stockpile gift cards are available at local grocery and retail locations nationwide.

For the adventure seeker…

IfOnly is an elite online outlet that offers once-in-a-lifetime experiences to anyone. IfOnly offers an array of experiences covering many categories – culinary, sports, performing arts, music and beyond. Portions of every purchase goes towards a specific charity.

For the photo-taking travel enthusiast…

The MeFOTO SideKick is fit for snapping pics with your smartphone. The adapter provides solid camera support and precision control. Indispensable for creating sharp photos, videos, time lapse and long exposures.

Tamrac® just released a new camera bag perfect for summer travel and beyond. Designed specifically for the outdoor adventurer, the HooDoo series of packs are minimal and lightweight, bringing high performance and innovative durability to the camera bag market.

For the tech fanatic…

Gifting technology to a new grad shouldn’t have to break the bank! Gazelle.com sells certified, pre-owned devices like MacBooks, smartphones and tablets. All pre-owned devices are Gazelle Certified™ and must pass a 30-point quality inspection. There is also a 30-day risk-free return policy.

For the movie lover…

Redbox, a mainstream rental movie/game kiosk, offers a bunch of gifting options online. If you’re looking for a budget-friendly way to tell you grad “congrats,” you can easily purchase rental coupon codes they’re sure to use and enjoy.

For the mini graduate…

Show your preschool or pre-K graduate some love with personalized books and gifts from I See Me! The online shop makes memorable keepsakes with a personal touch- adding your child’s image, name and more to adorable, original and traditional books.
