Under $40 High School Graduation Gifts


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 fabulous options for girls and boys and their modern and colorful styles are always a hit with teens. Their notepad (and gift tag!) bundle is an amazing deal if you need to order gifts for six or more grads. And, you can get get 15% off sitewide with the code DSG15!

Audrey Durden is one of our go-to brands for personalized gifts for every occasion, and for good reason. Everything can be personalized with the recipient’s monogram, making their items deeply personal and special — at incredible price points, no less! Their monogrammed trays and pillowcases are both under $20 and if you want to spend a little more, the monogrammed acrylic lapboard is a great gift under $50.  

We love anything by LoHome, and these monogrammed hand-painted boxes and are no exception. These monogrammed trays are also under $40! Use code DSG15 for 15% off.
