Find Perfect Gifts for Grads at Best Buy

It's graduation season, and chances are there's a grad or two (or more) in your life. Maybe you've been trying to think of the perfect gift, but somehow it seems so much easier to slip a check or some cash in a card. While that is probably the simplest course, and always appreciated, why not give a thoughtful, memorable gift to your favorite grad? What a surprise to actually receive a real present! That is not a common sight on the "gift" table (usually housing just a box for cards), and no matter how old you are, it is always fun to have a package to open. Especially if the gift giver puts some thought into it and finds something that would really be used and enjoyed.

I understand - it can be overwhelming trying to figure out what to buy. But don't worry, Best Buy is there to help! Many grads are preparing to step out on their own for the first time, whether in a dorm room, student housing, or just getting a place with a roommate. They need everything! The possibilities are basically endless. Some of my favorite picks:

Keurig Elite Single-Serve Brewer 
Help a new college student survive late night study sessions with a Keurig Elite Single-Serve Brewer. The academics of college life can take a toll, and a little caffeine goes a long way. Keurigs are great because you can brew one cup at a time, and the variety is impressive. Hosting a study group? Everyone can choose their own flavor. Perfect!

LG Microwave + Pizza Oven
Suddenly being responsible for providing one's own meals is a lot to handle. Make life easier for your grad with an LG Microwave + Pizza Oven. Don't make him rely on dorm food or carry out for every meal!

Hoover Wind Tunnel 2 Vacuum
College life can get messy. All that partying studying leaves little time for cleaning, especially if you throw a part-time job into the mix. But a little vacuuming can go a long way, so you might want to gift your grad a Hoover Wind Tunnel 2 Vacuum. It won't do laundry, but at least the crumbs will be taken care of.
