Graduation parties have already started to grow in the summer, and if you’re attending one or more for a family member or close friend, you’ve probably wondered what to get a recent graduate as a gift. There are many great options, but the classic backup gift for graduation will always be the latest, best technical gadget. If a graduate in your life falls into the Apple ecosystem (or wants to switch), any of these five items would be a fantastic choice. The best part is that almost all of them are reduced for a limited time.
- Includes a charging case
- Provides a total listening time of more than 24 hours (with charging case) and up to 5 hours on a single charge
- Easy to set up with automatic in-ear detection
- Ability to share audio between 2 sets of AirPods for shared listening
AirPods are one of the most “magical” products Apple has released in recent years. They are very easy to use, sound great and are extremely comfortable. When you use them with another Apple product after the first initial pairing you just insert them in your ears and they plug in automatically and you’re done. You can even use them as “regular” Bluetooth headphones with non-Apple products, but they won’t have all the fancy features like Siri, auto connect and more that you get when using them with another Apple gadget. These things are worth the full price, but at a discount of 25% they can not be ignored.
- Allows users to send text messages, call and even receive instructions from your wrist, leaving iPhone in your pocket
- Connection options include Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and NFC
- Retina display – always on
- Includes applications for ECG and heart rate monitor
- Great for activity tracking
- Allows you to stream Apple Music, podcasts or audiobooks right from your watch
While the Apple Watch can technically be used without another Apple device, you probably shouldn’t try, you’ll get a lot more from one of them if you have an iPhone to pair. Basically, the Apple Watch takes many features of your phone and puts them on your wrist. In addition, thanks to the many sensors built into the device, it also takes several (or wrist) useful health readings and can provide important information about your health. And last but not least, it’s a pretty lovely, endlessly customizable fashion accessory. This is part of Amazon’s “updated” program, which provides refurbished products at a discount. If you’re a little wary of taking an updated product, don’t worry, it’s backed up Updated 90-day Amazon warrantywhich means that “like new refurbished products … have been professionally tested and tested for work and look like new vendors that are Amazon qualified and performance driven” and “you are entitled to a replacement or refund within 90 days of receipt product if it does not work as expected ”.

If you follow Apple news or technical news a bit, you’ve probably heard all about the new (and very good) Apple M1 chip. This Macbook Air is one of the first machines with a chip that allows you to do some pretty impressive things, such as run up to 18 hours without charging, provides 3.5 times higher performance than previous generation laptops, while using even less power and running beautiful 13.3-inch Retina display. Of course, like all Apple devices, this one can be used in conjunction with almost all other devices in the lineup to unlock even more usability.

- A13 Bionic chip with Neural Engine
- Rear camera 8 MP, front camera 12 MP “Ultra Wide”.
- 256 GB of memory

The iPad (or tablet in general) can be one of those things that seems hard to understand why you need it until you actually have it, and then for many it will become indispensable. A reliable tablet can very quickly become your way of consuming news, reading books (or comics), creating art or music, controlling various smart accessories in your home, browsing the web without having to deal with a much heavier and bulkier laptop and countless more things. For most people, if you live that kind of life on tablets, you’ll never go back, and the iPad still remains the undisputed king of tablets. It has a 10.2-inch Retina display, a 12 MP front camera and an 8 MP rear camera, stereo speakers and 256GB of memory. All the products on this list will be a great gift for a recent graduate, but it may be the best choice.
- Unlocked for all mobile operators
- 128 GB of memory
- 6.1-inch Super Retina XDR display
- “Record Dolby Vision HDR video up to 4K at 60 frames per second. 2X optical zoom range”
- A15 bionic chip
- 16-core neural motor
- Up to 19 hours of video playback without charging

Undoubtedly, the iPhone is the main gem of Apple products. The 13 Series is the latest iPhone in the product’s big history, and as you might expect, it has all the frills you’ve ever wanted in a phone. The camera is exciting, the battery life is better than ever, the performance is fantastic and it is even more waterproof than any phone. If the graduate in your life is all about Apple, but they still don’t have an iPhone, you can become the hero they need and pick up this updated iPhone 13 for about $ 50 cheaper than Apple’s new one. You can even potentially withdraw more from the final price if you have one trade to offer. This phone has the same 90-day updated Amazon warranty as the Apple Watch listed above, so if you want to save a few bucks, we definitely recommend taking advantage of the offer.
