Fully Qualified: 62 Grad School and Masters Degree Graduation Gifts for Him
Graduating with a master’s degree typically comes only a few years after a student’s undergraduate graduation ceremony, but that doesn’t make it less important. Whether this is the end of the line for a student or just a stepping stone towards further education, it is a massive accomplishment that doesn’t deserve to be downplayed just because it happens in such close proximity to another big graduation event.
There are a few different ways you can go when shopping for a graduation present for a man earning a master’s degree. From lighthearted fun presents that can help him unwind after another huge educational accomplishment, to inspiring books that can give them a boost as they continue in life, there’s something on this list that will make any graduate’s big day even better.
This duffle bag has classic, timeless looks as well as a large capacity. If your recent graduate is ready to hit the road for a new job, or simply for a well-deserved vacation, this bag is perfect. He’ll be able to fit quite a bit inside, but it’s still small enough to use as a carry-on for most airlines. This bag has two short handles for carrying in the hand as well as a padded strap for slinging it comfortably over the shoulder. There’s even a side compartment that lets you carefully stash an extra pair of shoes separately, so you won’t get the clothes in your main compartment dirty.
While grad school was a world where hoodies and jeans were okay day-to-day, he now may need to dress to impress at that job interview or networking event.

This watch comes with a flexible sportsband that can be worn during exercise, and the supported heart rate monitor will show him that his cardio’s been paying off.
Maybe your graduate won’t want to look at another book for a few months after graduating. That’s understandable. But reading is an important way to keep the mind sharp and stay connected with new ideas. If he lives in a small apartment, he might not have room to build up a personal library, but a Kindle lets him have all the books he could ever want in one small package. It’s also great to take on trips or on a commute so he’ll never run out of things to read.

Even if he just camps out at a desk all day, though, this is a thoughtful and useful gift that will keep him well-caffeinated.
A hobby is a great thing to cultivate once you leave school. Photography has become a particularly popular option in recent years. Not only is it a great way to capture memories for yourself and others, but it can also even become an income stream for the entrepreneurially minded. If your graduate enjoys traveling or just noticing the little moments around him, this lightweight and easy to carry camera is a great gift option.

As he grows more as a photographer, there is a wide variety of lenses and add-ons he can choose from as well.
For all the note-taking apps out there, there’s nothing quite like handwritten notes. Many students get into the habit at university to help better activate their memory.

This journal is durable and perfectly sized whether they need a place to keep their ideas organized or a place to reflect on their daily life and travels. The handsome leather cover will make this look at home on any bookshelf or desk, and the leather will only look better and feel softer as it ages.
