College Graduation Gifts for a Guy
Your graduate has sweated it out for four, five or maybe even six years and it’s time to reward all of that hard work with a fitting graduation gift. We’ve picked some of our favourite university graduation gifts for men that will show your loved one how much he is appreciated.
Miik Men Classic Men’s Tee
Every man needs a classic tee in his wardrobe and this luxury t-shirt from new Toronto menswear retailer, Miik Men, will take your guy many places including brunch on Sunday or even to the office when worn under a casual suit. The t-shirt pictured above is made from 90% modal (10% lycra), but it also comes in tencel and bamboo. Miik products are produced locally, with materials that are sustainably sourced. This tee is form fitting, giving it a classy look and the material is incredibly soft. With a drop-tail hem, this tee fits on the small side so if your guy normally wears a medium, go up a size to a large. Tee comes in black, slate or white in S, M, L, XL and XXL and retails for $112.
Bose Sound True On Ear Headphones in Black
Your new grad will probably appreciate the Bose Sound True On Ear Headphones, $99.95, for daily commutes to his new job or listening to music at a home shared by roommates. Whether he’s listening to his favourite music downloads or opting for hands-free telephone calls, he should appreciate the headphones’ softly padded headband and memory foam padding; inline microphone and remote facilities switching between music and calls; and fold flat earcups. They also come with a carrying case and a one year warranty.
