Graduation Gift Guide

Graduation Gift Guide

Spring is here, and summer is approaching quickly. You know what that means, right? Graduation season is upon us. Students who have worked hard and persevered through years of homework, testing, early mornings, and late nights are about to move up in the world. Whether it is a high school graduate going to college, or a college graduate embarking on a new career path, graduation is a big stepping stone in life. Much like birthdays and anniversaries , graduations call for celebrating, and celebrations call for gifts. If you find yourself scratching your head and pondering what a good graduation gift is, and where to get it, we at Mountain High are here to help you. Check out some of our products that will make great graduation gifts!

An ENO DoubleNest Print Hammock is basically a necessity for high school grads heading off to college. Many college campuses have areas that are great for hanging a hammock, and these areas are hot hangout spots for college students. They can relax and study or nap in-between classes, or just enjoy some fresh air (which is nice when you’re stuck inside all day!). Check out the regular DoubleNest and SingleNest hammocks here.

 Backpacks can be great gifts for high school grads. In college, you don’t really have lockers, and you have to carry all of your books, notebooks, laptop, and other necessities with you. This calls for a good, durable backpack. The North Face backpacks are super popular among college students. The padded straps, supportive back panel, and multiple compartments makes the North Face Recon backpack a great option.

Much like a hammock, a cacoon can be a wonderful gift for high school grads and college graduates alike. The versatile Cacoon Single is a take-with-you, super light alternative to a hammock. Hang it from a tree on campus, in a dorm room, or in a new office at their first “big people” job. This expertly designed hanging chair will last them for years.  

Collegiate gear is a great gift to pump up a high school graduate for college, or a sentimental gift of remembrance for a college graduate. A Collegiate Yeti cup is both thoughtful and practical for any graduate. Check out our Alabama, Auburn, Georgia, and Tennessee Yeti Ramblers. Another hydrating collegiate gift is a Camelbak Collegiate bottle. In the Chute design, and Eddy .75L design, these bottles will come in handy when walking around campus or sitting on a desk at work.

 Many college graduates travel after graduation. Whether it be a weekend vacay or months of road tripping and exploring, they are sure to need some travel essentials. A sturdy duffel bag is an absolute must have for travel. The North Face Base Camp Duffel comes in 4 convenient sizes and features water-resistant material, multiple pockets for organization, and padded handles for comfortable carrying. As summer is on the heels of graduation, many college students will attend one or maybe multiple music festivals over summer break. A fanny pack can be a handy must-have for carrying necessary items without the bulk of a backpack. Check out the fanny packs (or hip packs) we carry from Southern Shirt Company, Patagonia, and Kavu.  

College football tailgating is an essential part of the college experience, especially here in the south. Get your high school grad ready for tailgating with the ultimate tailgating must-have, a Yeti cooler. The Yeti Hopper Flip 12 is the perfect choice for a tailgating cooler. Its durable design and wide mouth opening makes for easy use and easy transport. The Yeti Tundra Silo is also a great cooler to have on tailgating days. With a SurePour spigot and rotomolded design, this hydration station will really come in handy.

If you’ve read through this list and thought, “Hmm, I just don’t know what (insert name here) would want as a gift,” a Mountain High Outfitters gift card is the gift that always fits! Give the gift of a gift card so that your graduate can pick out their own gear and you’ll rest easy knowing they are getting exactly what they want.

Hopefully this gave you some ideas of some great gifts from Mountain High Outfitters for a high school or college graduate. For more gift ideas visit our Graduation Gift page.
