High School Graduation Gift Ideas by Intended Major


SPONSORED CONTENT -- (StatePoint) It’s graduation season, and if you have a college-bound student in your life, you’re probably looking for great ways to honor all their achievements of the past four years while helping prepare them for future successes.

Consider this round-up of high school graduation gifts, by intended college major:

Music: College dorm rooms don’t always have a ton of space. For music majors, this can be a problem. Provide a solution with the CT-S1, a 61-key ultra-portable keyboard from Casio. Available in black, white or red to suit different styles, this great-sounding, stylish keyboard is designed for beginners and seasoned players alike, particularly for those who want to record their music and perform it live. An easy one-button recorder allows players to capture their musical ideas, while strap pins and battery-operated capabilities mean they can take their songs anywhere they go, whether that be to a battle of the bands event, or to perform a set at the campus coffee house.

Foreign languages: Will your student be majoring in a foreign language? With all those language labs in their future, they’ll need a great set of headphones that keeps their ears comfortable, minimizes distractions by cancelling outside noise, and offers amazing sound quality so they can perfect all those tricky pronunciations. Look for long battery life, high fidelity audio and Bluetooth capabilities.

Health care: A new nursing and pharmacy calculator, the SP-100USNU from Casio, is a practical calculator featuring quick operations that will assist in dosing of intravenous drip medication, finding body mass index, and calculating body surface area and estimated glomerular filtration rate. This model is one of the first calculators to be constructed inside an antimicrobial case approved to ISO 22196 standards, and features an easy-to-sterilize silver-colored front plate. Ready for use right outside the box, your student will be prepared to both learn, as well as to apply their knowledge in laboratory work right away.

Art history: Bring your art history major’s studies out of the textbook and into the real world with a membership to the premier art museum in the city closest to where their campus is located. Memberships often provide not only free admission to the museum, but exclusive invitations to one-of-a-kind events with artists, historians and other speakers, as well as special off-hours access to exhibits so they can get up close and personal with the artwork, without having to fight the crowds.

Journalism: In today’s multimedia landscape, budding journalists need to be more than crackerjack writers, they also need to be well-equipped to produce engaging video content. A subscription to video editing software will help them acquire and maintain the skills they’ll need to succeed in the classroom now, and on-the-job when they graduate.

As your favorite student heads off for their freshman year of college, you can help pave the way for their academic success with the perfect graduation gift.
