Grads might not have walked to “Pomp and Circumstance” this year, but you can still recognize their achievements with the perfect gift. Statistics show most adults spend between $100 and $125 on graduation gifts. While cash is always welcome, there are more memorable — and helpful — gifts that can help your favorite new adult navigate life, have fun, and set themselves up in their own home.

1. The latest smart home technology

Whether they are planning to settle into a dorm or their first apartment, everyone needs a voice-activated home assistant to help. Even if they have one, they’ll appreciate the latest version with the newest — and coolest — skills. The Echo Show 8 features HD video display, stereo sound, and more — like the ability to call parents and grandparents with a simple command.

5. Keep them safe and prepared

Every parent and grandparent worries when their kid or grandkid steps into the world on their own. Worry a bit less with a first aid kit that will keep them ready for any emergency, whether they are on the road, camping, or hanging at home. Hopefully they never need it, but they’ll thank you for thinking of their well-being.

8. What’s old (in cameras) is new again

Despite having a camera at their fingertips, young adults are having fun with older technology like this Fujifilm Instax Mini camera. It takes fun, quick photos of friends that they can then actually have in print – instantly. There are plenty of fun accessories in this set, too, like a case, filters and ways to decorate and hang their masterpieces.

9. A new laptop for the next chapter

Chances are your grad used a trusty laptop to get through high school or college. But most computers only have a shelf-life of a few years before their owners are itching for the latest technology, slimmer size, and a bigger screen. Wow them with this Dell laptop that is consistently rated one of the best around.

10. The prime gift is … Prime
