How To Find A Unique Graduation Gift

Before we get to the list, I want to share a few gift-buying tips with you.

How do you find a unique graduation gift? Here are my best tricks.

Avoid Endcaps

One of the best ways to make sure you aren’t buying the same gift as everyone else is to avoid endcaps and graduation displays. If you see a bunch of gifts that all look the same, keep walking.

The same thing goes for online shopping. Don’t click through ads either. If you see “sponsored result” on Amazon, scroll past it. Chances are that a bunch of other people saw that same ad.

Shop Online

Another way to find unique graduation gifts is to shop online – mostly on Etsy. When you buy handmade gifts, they will stand out from the mass-produced options.

Buy From Local Boutiques

Another way to support small businesses and buy gifts that stand out is to shop at local boutiques or booths at craft fairs. These gifts are not coming off an assembly line, they are made by hand by someone in your area.

No matter what you do, the best way to buy unique gifts is to go where people aren’t shopping and look for gifts there.

That’s not to say you can’t get things from the popular stands, shops, or displays at stores. If your graduate loves a best-selling author, get them a few books. Or, buy something directly from the author online.

Types Of Unique Gifts

What makes a gift unique? These are the most popular types of gifts that will stand out (and I included these kinds of gifts in my list below).


If the gift has an inspiring quote or is a book that will inspire them to reach for their dreams, then this gift will stand out. Inspirational gifts are unique and always wanted.


If you find a tech gadget that blows your mind, then grab it! This includes things like a self-warming coffee cup, a gadget that stirs food for you while it cooks, or a notebook that automatically uploads notes to an app.

These techy gadgets are impressive and always stand out.

Funny Gifts

Getting something with graduation puns will stand out from all the other gifts too! Go for the humor of the gift and it will be the star of the party.
