A great gift for any new graduate whether they’re getting primed for more online learning or starting a new adventure or job, is tech that will help them stay connected.
We’re loving these items from Samsung because they all work together to create a great user experience. To stay connected, the Galaxy S21 5G has amazing cameras with 8K Video Snap and Portrait Mode so they can snap images of their new adventures and send them to you!
It also works awesome with the headphones that have noise cancellation and the Book Pro 360, which actually has an AMOLED screen that lets you work inside or in direct sunlight.
No matter where your teen is headed next, you want to make sure they do it with confidence.
Whether they’re about to embark on a new school or test the waters applying for jobs, a good smile can go a long way. We have to tell you, we have been using this ToothWave toothbrush by Silk’n and it’s a game-changer. It actually uses radio frequency energy to clean your teeth and these charged molecules work to reduce tartar, prevent and reduce gingivitis and reduce stains and improves discolouration. It gives you that just-left-the-dentist feeling. We love it.
Speaking of confidence, they might be sweating the next stage of life, but they can’t show it!
Slip this aluminum-free deodorant from Secret in their backpack or workbag and it will keep them fresh for up to 48-hours. We like this one because it’s free of aluminum, parabens, dyes and talc and it’s certified cruelty-free so it’s gentle on your skin while still offering some tough protection from odor and sweat.
Shopping for your teen can be hard. But we’re stuck on gift ideas, the first place we turn to is Winners, Marshalls and HomeSense because we can always find something!
With new graduates, whether they’re starting a new job or moving into a new apartment, we found these awesome décor items that could work for a home office or really just look cool in an apartment, bedroom or dorm for a great value. And if they would rather pick it out themselves, digital gift cards can be the answer and they’re easily available at any of the stores – winners.ca/marshalls.ca/homesense.ca.
For a teen who is moving out or maybe getting their own TV in their room, we’re loving the idea of giving the Roku Express 4K as a gift.
It’s an easy-to-use streaming device that delivers exceptional 4K picture quality and endless amounts of TV, movies and on-demand content. We love to watch Netflix and the Disney Channel, but you can check out all the offerings on roku.ca, and we have to tell you, in a world of complicated tech devices, this one is super easy to use, and at a price point of $50, it’s also a great value!
