Graduation season is gradually approaching and the 2017-18 school year is coming to an end. As much as we are all excited for summer break, the seniors from this year are wrapping up their academic career (undergraduate at least) and it's time to say goodbye.
If you are on the search for the perfect graduation gift for your recent graduate, you've come to the right place. Although a recent graduate would be pleased with receiving money or gift cards as a gift, there is much more to life than money, so here are a few gift ideas by major to celebrate their academic success! Please note: many gifts would be appropriate for any major.
