3 best tech gifts all grads will want

Whether they are moving on from high school or college, there is no doubt new graduates could use a thing or two as they enter the next phase of their life. Either set free from the comfortable home where everything was provided or set out into the real world as full-fledged adults, the truth is no one can be too prepared.

That’s a big reason why many take it upon themselves to help grads celebrate with a gift. The question is, what should you buy them? Do you go for something practical or cool? Something they will need or that they will just want?

You really cannot go wrong, as we all know it is the thought that truly counts. But what counts just a smidge less than the thought is the gift itself, which is why we have compiled a list of tech gifts all grads will want.

Perfect iced coffee every time

Is your grad a fan of a nice, fresh coffee? How about iced coffee? With the HyperChiller Iced Coffee Maker, you are just 60 seconds away from having a hot coffee turn cold. Very cold.

Also good for chilling whiskey, wine, iced tea or any other beverage, the simple design with a 12.5-oz capacity is perfect for making sure drinks are cold. It can chill a drink by up to 130 degrees in a minute, all without dilution.

The chiller is dishwasher safe, too, so it will be easy to maintain.

Meals made easy

Grads have varying degrees of culinary ability, but every one of them needs to eat. With the Instant Pot, eating well will be made simple.

With the ability to be a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, yogurt maker, cake maker, egg cooker, saute, steamer, warmer and sterilizer, the Instant Pot can take care of pretty much whatever it is that needs to be done.

With 6 quarts of space, there will be no shortage of food produced, this pot replaces 10 common kitchen appliances and makes cooking easier than thought possible.

Who doesn’t need an assistant?

By now we all know how fun and useful the Amazon Echo is, and this second-generation version with a snazzy exterior would be a great gift for any grad.

You can ask it to play music, make calls, manage household appliances, act as an alarm and much, much more. It sounds great and will make any new grad’s life much easier to manage.

You know what else grads (and everyone else) likes? Cheap gas

Gas prices can be volatile; we all know that. But did you know gas prices in your city could vary by as much as 20 percent? The folks behind GasBuddy have a great website for hunting down cheap gas and planning trips. Click here to learn more.
