Under $40 High School Graduation Gifts for Friends


Can you believe that we’re about to say goodbye to another school year? It has flown by, and now is the time to think about ways to celebrate these amazing graduates. As usual, we searched high and low to make sure the gifts we feature this year are extra special. We’ve rounded up our top graduation gifts for high school and college grads in our gift guide, with ideas for boys and girls in all price points so be sure to browse them both.

Today we’re sharing great budget-friendly grad gifts that are perfect for when you need to find gifts for your high schooler’s classmates or graduating friends. We have a mix of practical gifts and gifts that are more on the personal side. All of the gifts are thoughtful and would put a smile on any hard-working graduate’s face! 

Up first, stationery is always one of my go-to graduation gifts! It’s personal and practical — the best of both worlds. Joy Creative Shop has four fabulous options for girls and boys and their modern and colorful styles are always a hit with teens. The best part? They come wrapped and ready to gift with a cute gift tag (see above!). Fill in the names and you’re set. And, you can get get 15% off sitewide with the code DSG15!
