Graduation season is officially here and whether your graduate is celebrating finishing high school or college, selecting a graduation gift doesn’t have to be tricky or expensive. To help you find the perfect gift we are rounding up our top five options for him and her that are under $100.

Starting for him, one gift that they can use for years to come is luggage. A duffle bag is ideal for long weekends and our favorite is the Herschel Supply Co. Novel Duffle Bag. Your graduate will definitely look stylish carrying this bag on any trip and it’s available in three different color options. Plus, it even has an exterior shoe compartment that will keep your clothes clean and separate. You can pick up this duffle for $85.

Another great gift is a watch. The Nixon Time Teller Stainless Steel Watch is sleek and stylish for this season. I love its versatile design that can be dressed up or down and it’s even water-resistant. A brushed black face makes this watch really standout and it’s currently on sale for $60.

You could also get your graduate a watch box to keep all of his watches in. Our favorite is the Pottery Barn Saddle Leather Jewlery Collection and you can even personalize it with their monogram.

A watch is also a great gift idea for a women and the adidas Process Bracelet Watch is sporty and casual for their next adventure. With a clean design and bracelet style, this watch will never go out of style. This watch is on sale for $100.

Now that your graduate has started a new path in their life, it may be time to update the wallet they’ve been using. For men, the Fossil Ward Leather Wallet features unique color block leather and has RFID shielding to protect personal information. It also has an abundance of spaces for cards and cash as well. It’s priced at just $50.

The women’s Kate Spade New York Cameron Leather Wristlet is a must-have if they are needing a new wallet. A perfect date-night wristlet that lets you go out-and-about with all of your essentials organized without weighing you down. Better yet, it’s on sale for $88 and is available in four color options.

Now that your graduate is growing up, early mornings or late nights are soon to be in their schedule. The Chemex pour-over Coffee Maker is elegant and really easy to use. Plus, it’s only $42 and designed with a small to frame to take with them anywhere.
