5 Grad Gifts that Turn Traditional on Its Head

The Sleekest, Longest Lasting Mechanical Pencil

Try to find the seam on Modern Fuel's metal mechanical pencil. You won’t see it, and that’s the whole point. Meticulous engineering makes it look like a single, solid design from barrel to nib. The careful craftsmanship means it’s durable, too, with a lifetime guarantee.

A Never-Ending Notebook

Giving a journal is a great old-school gift. But this endlessly reusable whiteboard notebook is made up of dry erase pages, so you can use each and re-use one.

A Front Pocket Wallet That’s Made in the USA

Everyone’s used to carrying a wallet in their rear pocket, but this one is made for the front. The curved design of these men's front pocket wallets are made to match the curved profile of most front pockets, giving a great fit that could put less strain on your back. Plus the front pocket is less prone to physical theft and, with built-in RFID protection, your grad will be protected against digital theft, too.



A Paperweight with Positivity

Give your grad an uplifting message with a handmade, inspirational pewter paperweight. Created by artist Judy Vilmain, each one is crafted in Rhode Island. Judy left behind her life as a college professor to work with her hands. Her inspiring company proves that—just as this paperweight says—if you can dream it, you can become it.



A Modern, Waterproof Backpack

Gone are the days when grads could use a briefcase. Give this durable, commuter backpack instead. It’s perfect for toting a laptop, other devices, and other essentials. Inspired by outdoor gear, it’s waterproof, tough, and highly organized. The padded laptop sleeve helps protect your computer, and expandable side pockets can hold sunglasses, water bottles and more.
