Who doesn’t want a speaker to blast their music on, or even add volume to a television? Any graduate who enjoys tech, will love this!

This speaker can be found on Amazon for $189.79. This speaker has a built in battery that can be recharged and has a 5 hour play time. With dual base, the volume can go very high. Because of its bigger size, this speaker is not easily portable.

You can never go wrong buying a computer for a techie like graduate. If you’re willing to spend a good amount for a gift, a computer/laptop is the way to go. Whether this grad is headed to college or to their first career, a computer will not only be much appreciated but also, much needed.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S3

This tablet can be transformed into a functional laptop just by adding a few accessories. Buying a keyboard, and even a mouse will make this small tablet feel like an office computer.

If you’re looking for something that can be used as a notebook or laptop, this would be the device to get.

MacBook Air
