Once again, it’s finally here – graduation! Whether it’s college, high school, vocational school, or another milestone, we want to celebrate our new minted graduates. But what is an appropriate gift? Our Graduation Gifts 2022 Guide has some stellar suggestions in store, perfect for helping your special grad prepare for a brand-new journey!

Where do you begin? There are plenty of options out there, and frankly, it can feel overwhelming. Thankfully, the Shop LC editorial team has curated some practical (and not-so-practical 😉) solutions to inspire your own gifting.


For seniors graduating high school, it’s an important milestone. For many of these young people, they will be taking their first steps into adulthood. This can mean starting their first job, prepping for college or a trade school, or even starting their own business.

For these young adults, there are many options to consider. Some of the most thoughtful gifts are those that will help them on their path ahead. Just take a look!


A watch is a terrific and traditional graduation gift. And even though we’re in an age where mobile phones are an essential everyday carry, a watch adds a touch of sophistication and maturity.

Whether they are applying for a first job, or trying for a summer internship, a nice watch helps project an image of responsibility and confidence.


Therefore, we love this Oniss watch! An excellent choice for a young man, the 36.5-millimeter case rests comfortably on the wrist. A finish of steel with rose gold accents is our top pick for coordinating this timepiece with his wardrobe, but don’t neglect the full yellow gold or rose gold plating, either.

A Swiss movement keeps accurate time, ensuring punctuality for their next meeting. This watch also includes a calendar function and bracelet style closure for comfortable daily wear. A five-atmosphere water resistance ensures it will stand up to most exposures to water.


Developed exclusively for Shop LC, EON 1962 is a range of high-quality watches. Each features reliable craftsmanship, such as Swiss movements.

From the Chuck Clemency Collection comes this EON 1962 watch. Accented with Lustro Stella cubic zirconia, this adds subtle sophistication and class.

Available in ion plated rose gold or black, each timepiece includes an easy-to-use bracelet clasp and calendar function.


Let’s admit it – most of us would be lost without our mobile phones. They play such an important function in our daily lives, it’s essential that they go with us everywhere.

But one thing that can be worrying is the battery level. While we can often depend on using a car charge while on-the-go, or recharging at a friend’s house, there might be times when there simply isn’t a good option.

HOMESMART Black Carabiner Solar 5000 mAh Battery Charger with USB & Emergency LED Torch

There’s a reason why the HOMESMART solar charger is a Shop LC best seller. This mobile charging solution is portable power bank that goes wherever you need it.

A carbineer makes it easy to clip onto a backpack or bag for easy transport and access. And there’s two ways to juice up this battery! Plug it in like other power bank batteries, or let the sun do the work. A solar panel soaks up the sun’s rays to help recharge batteries on-the-go.

Lastly, this charger also incorporates a handy flashlight, perfect for enjoying the long summer days ahead of graduation, before settling into the next chapter of their life.


There are plenty of 2022 graduation gifts for those heading off on their own to school or moving to a new city for work.


For those starting a new adventure, you’ve already supplied them with essentials like bedsheets and blankets. However, one thing to consider is comfort they can carry around the house!

The HOMESMART hooded blanket is the perfect solution. With a super soft interior, your grad will stay warm and cozy while studying at home – and some Shop LC viewers even share how their kids take them to class on cold days!

The Sherpa fabric imitates the texture and warm of sheep fleece, ensuring warmth wherever and whenever it’s needed. Easy to care for, simply machine wash cold and tumble dry low.


It doesn’t take much to freshen up a dorm or apartment. Some new curtains, perhaps a rug – and some throw pillows too! They add a touch of color and fun that helps express the personality of the person occupying a space.

Instead of paying extra to replace throw pillows over and over, why not opt for some fun slip covers instead? It’s a quick and easy way to give a space a makeover without investing a lot of time or money.

And when it comes to slipcases, Shop LC has you covered (pun intended – editor)!

Faux fur functions fine for fermenting festive feels. Available in pink, gray, white, and black, these faux fur pillowcases are great for promoting a fun and cheerful atmosphere.

For some funky vibes, consider instead these animal pillow slipcases. Each set of four present an assortment of animals in fun and fashionable outfits.

Or, finally, consider these bold and vibrant print pillowcases. Choosing between one of two geometric designs, or two separate floral prints, you really can’t go wrong.


A very popular gift for many grads, especially young women, is a necklace. Many show the graduating year. Instead of choosing yet another “graduation necklace 2022,” why not consider one of these alternatives?

Each is wonderful as a piece she can wear daily, and great for both casual and their future office!


Shop LC carries a wide variety of birthstone jewelry. These selections are great gifts for most occasions, including graduation.

Artisan Crafted Polki Diamond Dainty Drop Station Necklace 18-20 Inches in 14K Rose Gold Over Sterling Silver

We love this Polki diamond necklace for its subtle sophistication mixed with boho charm. An adjustable chain makes it easy to get the perfect fit. A rose gold finish create adds a contemporary touch.


Another popular option is the initial pendant. From A – Z, this is an option that suits just about everyone!

Each initial pendant is cast from luxurious 10K yellow gold and features a diamond accent. Simply add a suitable chain, and you’re good to go!


No matter what you do for your new graduate, what’s important is gifting from the heart. Hopefully these gift ideas help inspire you as you consider your own presents.
