Graduation Gifts for Guys


It’s graduation season!  Okay, maybe that’s not a real season, but lots of people are graduating this time of year.  Again, in looking for ideas for graduating gifts, most are for females!  So I decided to do a post with some graduation gifts for guys.  This one will have some ideas for purchased gifts & homemade gifts.  I know cash is king when it comes to graduation gifts, but that can be a little impersonal.  Let’s take a look at some other options!

I broke these into categories, but guys {nor gals} usually don’t fall into one category.  This just makes it easier to group items that might relate to a certain guys interests.  ; )
