Hey loves! Graduation 2020 is just around the corner and it’s looking like gift shopping is going to be almost entirely digital this year. But fortunately we’ve been shifting towards online shopping ever since Amazon got big so most of us are more than prepared.
We want to make sure that graduates this year still know just how special they are to all of us. Because this self-quarantine totally wrecked the rest of their school year and potential massive graduation parties.
All these gifts are under $100 and most are under $50. Being a teenager myself, these gifts are Gen Z verified and items I would genuinely like to receive. So no worries about buying a graduation gift the recipient won’t even use or like.
I got you. These gifts are cute, fashionable, and international. So you can give the graduation gift of culture awareness.
All these gifts are graduation girls friendly, but may or may not hit it off with the fellas. So you’d probably be better off with another list for a graduating male. But hey– you can still look!
These graduation gifts come from all over the world, including Africa, Japan, Korea, Vietnam, Europe, Portugal, Italy, China, and more. It took me about 6 hours to find these high-quality, high-rated international gifts that graduates would actually like.
‘Cause my generation is picky you guys! So take your pick and shop with confidence. And all these items come straight from Amazon, meaning gift-cards and prime memberships can come into play with prices.
