For the recent grad in your life, send them on their post-education way with one of these 10 gifts—from the sentimental to the savvy.

Carry On Luggage, Monos


After graduation, many grads take some time to travel. To help them jet-set in style, gift them some luxe luggage. With its award-winning design and solid build, the Monos Carry-On suitcase is the perfect travel companion. This carry-on luggage size is designed to fit in the overhead bin of almost any flight, anywhere in the world, and is outfitted with an unbreakable polycarbonate shell, ultra-sturdy telescopic handle, TSA-approved lock, whisper-quiet wheels and vegan leather details. Our favorite finish is the stonelike pattern from the brand’s Terrazzo collection, inspired by the recognizable material found in a range of eras and places from from centuries-old Italian villas to 1920s Art Deco architecture.

Time Teller Watch, Nixon


A watch is a classic milestone gift but you don’t have to break the bank or go the Rolex route to show your pride for your grad. Nixon’s Time Teller was modeled after watches that were passed down from generation to generation and created to have a classic silhouette with a modern spin. The minimalist design is the perfect canvas for anyone’s aesthetic expression, while its 100m /10 ATM waterproof rating means getting wet is no big deal.
