With commencement right around the corner, you might be on the hunt for the perfect gift for the new grad in your life. It can be intimidating to find gadgets for a tech-savvy student. What do you get someone who’s so in touch with technology and electronics? Don’t worry—Quantum Fiber is here to help! We’ve rounded up some of the best tech products for graduation presents.

Tech gadgets make great graduation presents

No matter what your budget is this year, you can still find an amazing tech present. Whether you’re gifting a $500 headset or a $25 gift card for a streaming service, your new grad will appreciate the thought and love that went into your gift.

Meta Quest 2 VR Headset

The Meta Quest 2 will let your loved one do anything from playing multiplayer games to watching 360-degree videos. They can either use Touch Controllers or their own hands, using hand-tracking technology. If your grad will be using their VR headset in a smaller space, such as a dorm or apartment, they can even set up virtual boundaries to create a safe space. And with the Oculus app, they can cast videos onto a TV or phone.

If they already have a VR headset, check out four VR accessories for next-level gaming. And if they’re not a fan of virtual reality, check out more gaming accessories that make the perfect gift.

Echo Show 8

Graduating—whether it’s from high school, college, or higher education—is a huge milestone. Your loved one might be moving on to a new school or job. Instead of a tearful goodbye, gift them with a way to stay in touch: The Echo Show 8. This device allows you to make video calls with a camera that uses auto-framing to keep you centered. The smart functions are driven by a voice assistant, Alexa.

JBL Boombox 3

Your grad can use this gift right after the ceremony—at the graduation party! With 24 hours of battery life, the JBL Boombox 3 is guaranteed to be the life of the party. It’s waterproof and dust-proof, so it’s safe for trips to the beach or lake. The boombox also has a sturdy metal handle with a silicon grip, making it easy to transport to the next adventure.

Apple Watch SE

An Apple Watch is a great gift for anyone who’s on the go or likes to stay fit. The Apple Watch SE is the less expensive version of the traditional Apple Watch, but it’s still packed with tons of features. It has crash detection and watches out for both your heart health and your mindfulness. Your new grad can use it to listen to podcasts and audiobooks or to track their new sleep schedule.

Anker 321 Power Bank

The Anker 321 Power Bank is a great tool for those who are on the go and don’t have time to pause for a recharge. Your grad can easily carry the power bank with them wherever they go thanks to its ultra-compact and lightweight design. They can even charge two devices at once, since it has both USB-A and USB-C ports.

Apple AirTags

If your graduate is a bit forgetful or has a lot on their plate, an Apple AirTag is a great gift to help them stay on track. They can put an AirTag on virtually anything—keys, backpacks, or even a bike. If they struggle to find their car in a crowded campus parking lot, AirTags can help with that too! If the tagged item is nearby, their iPhone will lead them right to it.

Subscriptions, memberships, and gift cards

If you’re struggling to decide what to gift the techie in your life, don’t worry! You can easily pick up some alternatives at the store or order online. You can give your new grad a subscription to a streaming service like Disney+. If they’re more into streaming music, a year-long subscription to Spotify might be right up their alley. For the lifelong learner, Masterclass is the perfect way to help them achieve their dreams.
