Gift cards is another example of a versatile gift similar to money. Although gift cards are very versatile, they still provide a bit of personalization by allowing you to select a more specific way they spend their money. By choosing a specific store, this also ensures that they spend the money on themselves. Amazon, Dunkin Donuts, Starbucks, and Target are amazing options for graduates because they are just personalized enough to show that you know them well.
