Editor’s note: Graduation ceremonies across the country are being canceled and postponed due to coronavirus, but that doesn’t mean students aren’t still preparing to move on to the next phase of their lives. We hope this list provides some guidance for how to help them celebrate their accomplishments and smoothly transition to whatever form their next chapter may take.
Graduating from high school is one of the first major life events that feels appropriately “major.”
For many, it signifies a new life chapter: moving out of your parents’ house and the town which you know and which knows you, and opting to test yourself against the new hurdles down the road instead.
It’s also a time when the requirements for the scary and exciting years to come likely outstrip his budget.

The good news is that gifts for high school students — be they thoughtful or practical or both — are of disproportionate value, and if you’re in a position to give one, you can be sure he’ll be grateful. With that in mind, I’ve rounded up 44 thoughtful and practical high school graduation gifts for him below.
