It's that transitional time of year again! And no, I don't mean warmer weather as we go from spring to summer. Graduation season is upon us and millions of students are about to embark on new adventures.

Whether the student in your life is pursuing high education or preparing to enter the workforce, there's a gift on this list that he or she will be grateful to receive. Plus, each of these discounted items has at least a four-star customer rating.

Convertible Chromebook

Nothing says versatility quite like this! Your graduate can use this device like a regular laptop or fold the screen behind the keyboard to use it as a tablet. With up to 10 hours of battery life, it's perfect for on-the-go productivity, like taking notes during lectures or business meetings.

The Acer Chromebook R11 has an 11.6-inch HD touchscreen, 32 GB of storage, and an Intel Celeron N3150 Quad-Core Processor. There's also an HD webcam, USB ports, Bluetooth 4.0 and stereo speakers. The list price is $299.99 but you can buy it now from Amazon for $259.99.

Portable Charger

If your graduate's phone is dead then they can't call to ask for more money! But a dead phone also means you can't check in and make sure they're adjusting well. This compact portable charger will keep their phone and tablet batteries full.

A fully charged Power Bank RAVPower 26800mAh has enough juice to provide nine full battery cycles to an iPhone 7, two cycles to an iPad Air, and six cycles to a Galaxy S7. Not only that, but it can simultaneously charge all three of these devices at full speed. The regular price is $159.99, but you can save a whopping $110 if you buy it from Amazon right now for $49.99.

Noise Cancelling Headphones

On-campus housing is known to get pretty rowdy. And the tiny apartment that's affordable enough for your graduate probably has thin walls too. If your graduate doesn't want to go to the library or a small coffee shop every time they need peace and quiet then headphones that block out the ruckus are a lifesaver.

The Cowin E7 Active Noise Cancelling headphones are wireless, lightweight, and have cushioned earpads for comfort. You can listen to music for up to 30 hours in Bluetooth mode and plug them in when the battery dies to continue enjoying your music. The regular price is $99.99 but you can buy them now for $69.99.

Bonus: Waterproof Hydration Backpack

Even though your recent graduate will be very busy, it's important for him or her to take time to relax and lead a balanced life. This gift will encourage them to stay active and explore new places from time to time.

The Waterproof Hydration Action Sports Pack holds two liters of a refreshing beverage and has a 10-liter waterproof storage compartment to keep their gadgets dry. This item is selling fast so get it while supplies last. The regular price is $69.98 but you can save nearly 50 percent if you buy it from the Komando Shop for $34.99. There's only a few left and when it's gone, it's gone!
