Add a touch of class to  beer drinking with this beautiful, stainless steel growler. The uKeg regulates pressure to maintain carbonation and has a tap for easy pouring. Let’s just hope their taste in beers has graduated as well.

 Cookbooks… any cookbook

The dorm room diet isn’t exactly glamorous but there’s no reason it can’t be. This cookbook for college students is a great resource for easy and healthy meals. Any cookbook will do though, they’re a great way to ween a college students off their meal plan.

Coffee Press

A good cup of coffee will get your grad through the earliest mornings and toughest days at work. Nothing beats a reliable coffee press and they look great in any dorm room or apartment.


My trusty steamer has saved me from embarrassingly wrinkly clothes on countless occasions. This grad gift is a must-have for any dorm room arsenal, it’ll save you tons of space too!

Fixie Road Bike

Fixies are the ultimate urban commuter. Your grad will be making a statement riding around campus or to work on this bike from Critical Cycles. If flashy isn’t their style it also comes in a variety of other colors, including a stealthy matte black.
