Graduation season is upon us. Whether you're road tripping upstate for a stadium-held extravaganza or staying local for a high school ceremony, these special times are deserving of a memorable gift.

And whereas it's nice to mark graduation with a new pair of earrings or a new laptop, there are other ways to mark the occasion in a useful or sentimental way. We're not just talking about gift cards here (although those are very useful) -- but practical presents any graduate would love.
