The adventurer

For the kid that’s always on the move, the Verizon GizmoWatch is the perfect graduation gift. It’s designed with child safety in mind, featuring GPS location tracking and text and call capabilities. Plus, it’s durable, waterproof, and fun to use.

The movie buff

For the avid TV watcher of the family, Disney+ is a great way to keep your grad entertained. They’ll gain access to hundreds of shows and movies from Disney, Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic, and more. Plus, on select Unlimited plans, you can get Disney+ free.

The music lover

For the musical, artsy graduate, connecting them to over 75 million songs on Apple Music is another thoughtful way to say congrats. They can build their own playlists, explore new music, and listen to their favorite tunes anytime, anywhere. Plus, with a new JBL Flip 5 Bluetooth speaker, they can share their music with the whole family.

High school graduation gifts

The gamer grad

For the grad who loves to game, give them the gift of 5G. With virtually no lag and ultra-fast download speeds, they’re guaranteed to have a next-level gaming experience on their 5G-compatible smartphone, tablet, or gaming system. If they want a more immersive gaming experience, give them a new pair of JBL Tune 500BT headphones.

You can also gift them (and yourself) extra peace of mind with Verizon Protect Home. They’ll have access to 24/7 tech support, enhanced Wi-Fi security, identity theft monitoring and more. Plus, with extra support and security, you get to breathe easy knowing all their devices – from smartphones, TVs, gaming systems and everything in between – are covered and protected under one plan.

The college prepper

College-bound graduates will appreciate you setting them up for success with the Apple iPad 10.2” (8th gen). They can bring it to class to take notes, use it to complete their homework, and keep their study schedule on track with an app like Todoist. They can also check out our post-grad lifestyle blog for helpful apps for managing money, finding an apartment, job hunting and more.

The social butterfly

Social grads who are always connected will love the Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max. It’s super-fast, 5G-compatible, and has a pro camera system that’s perfect for any kind of on-the-go photography. You can even grab them some fun accessories, like a Popsocket, to go with it.

Keeping in touch with their friends and family is easy with apps like GroupMe and What’s App as they go off to college, whether they’re across the state or across the globe.

The fit & fun grad

For the health-conscious college graduate, a smart watch is an even smarter graduation gift idea. With the Apple Watch or Galaxy Watch, they can track their steps, monitor their heart rate, send and receive calls and texts on the go, and much more. And with compatible apps like the Strong app, they can personalize their fitness experience all from their wrist.

For the career-focused grad, the Verizon Orbic Hotspot allows them to work from anywhere. With up to 12 hours of power, lightning-fast speeds and travel-friendly size, the world can be their oyster – or maybe just their office. Pair the Orbic Hotspot with the LG G Pad 5 and your hard-working grad will be unstoppable.

The seasoned grad

For the older, more experienced graduate, give them something that says, “I’m proud of you.” JBL Tune 220 wireless earbuds or a new Samsung Galaxy S21 make thoughtful, convenient gifts.
