Ideas for great gifts to give high school graduates that are useful and will be appreciated.
With the arrival of spring comes the arrival of high school graduation announcements. Some of these announcements are from students you are well acquainted with and others are from students you only know through their parents or some other indirect route. Regardless of your connection, it is often difficult to pick out a gift that will be both useful and appreciated. Below are a few ideas to get you started.
Tool kit - While this may not sound like the most glamorous gift in the world, it may very well be the most useful gift you can select. Everyone has a need for tools, and it is likely that most high school students do not already own a tool kit. When the recent grad moves into a college dorm or moves into an apartment, he/she will find an immediate need for a tool kit for hanging pictures and putting together furnishings, for example. You do not need to get an elaborate tool kit. There are small tool kits in compact boxes that contain the essentials, such as a hammer, screwdrivers, pliers, etc. For a fun twist, paint the student's name on the outside of the tool box. This is an appropriate gift for both males and females.
Monogrammed beach towel - Big beach towels are great for taking to the beach, to the pool, or simply using as bath towels. Select a well made towel that will be able to withstand many uses and washes in the washing machine. To add a nice personal touch to the towel and to differentiate it from other peoples' towels, have the grad's name monogrammed in large letters on the towel. Check in your local phone book for professional monogramming services.
Basket of shower gear - Many college students who live in a dorm have to share a bathroom with at least a few people. To make those trips back and forth to the shower more bearable, consider giving the grad a plastic bin or basket with a handle for carting around shampoo, soap, and other essentials. In fact, there are baskets that are made solely for this purpose. To add to the basket, consider filling it with bath items such as washcloths, shower sponges, and good-smelling soaps.
Dry erase board - Many college students who live in dorms enjoy putting a dry erase board on their dorm room door so that friends can leave them messages. Even if the grad is not planning on living in a dorm, a dry erase board is useful in the kitchen or next to a phone for jotting down quick messages. Dry erase boards and markers can be purchased at many office supply and discount stores. If you enjoy doing crafts, consider painting the student's name on the board frame or decorating the frame with ribbon.
Gift certificate - If all else fails, a gift certificate is always a safe bet for a high school graduate. If you do not know the type of store the student prefers, consider getting a mall gift certificate that can generally be used at any of the stores in that particular mall. This way, the student can select whatever he/she really wants.
Simply add a nice card to any of the gifts mentioned above and you'll be all set. Now that you have some ideas, hopefully you will not be so overwhelmed when you start receiving high school graduation announcements.

Another difference between chairs is the amount of pre-programmed massages that come standard with the chair. Most chairs break down pre-programs by upper, lower, and full body.
