Guide to 2022 graduation tech gifts: AirPods, smartwatches and more

Con-GRAD_ulations, Class of 2022! Years of hard work have brought you to the finish line. With all the late-night homework sessions, class presentations, and the pandemic, you’ve shown that nothing will stand in your way of earning that degree.

For anyone congratulating the graduate (which would be all of us), check out our favorite tech accessories from Amazon and Walmart here:

Digital alarm clock | Amazon


Graduating doesn’t mean it’s time to get lazy, there are still places to go and things to do. For $19.98, check out the digital alarm clock to make sure the graduate doesn’t stay in bed after the ceremony.

Education takes years and it’s a great way to learn to organize themselves (otherwise how could they find their homework?). For $46.80, the TESLYAR Wooden Phone Dock keeps technology and daily-use items organized. It’s a charging station for your phone and keeps watches, keys, notebooks and loose change stores safe and organized.

If you ask the graduate if he played loud music in the hallway, the answer will probably be yes. At $37.99, there’s a Bluetooth speaker that doubles as a nightlight and alarm clock. Useful for lighting up a room and keeping track of time, we consider that a win.

Virtual reality is one of the biggest things on the market right now. Everyone wants a taste of virtual reality and Amazon has you covered. Get the DESTEK Oculus Graduate for $19.99 and watch them battle zombies in your living room. This item is available in red, white and yellow. It also includes earplugs so they can sink in on the trip.

For $27.91, the Beanie Hat Bluetooth Headphones are a unique gift for the graduate. While they probably can’t wear it in the warmer months, this gift will come in handy for the cold winter, especially if they live in Update New York.

A portable charger is always useful to have. With the iWalk Mini portable charger for iPhone, full battery life can be stored in their back pocket. Ask them to keep this article with them at all times and there would be no excuse for them not being able to answer your calls!

Your grad most likely jumped on the Nintendo Switch craze at the start of the pandemic. If so, check out this set of FASTNAIL accessories for the Switch. This 12-in-1 set comes with a travel bag, charging cable, class protector, thumb caps, Joy Con covers, game card cases and a cleaning cloth.

It’s all about AirPods right now. For $146.99, you can gift the graduate the AirPods Pro if they don’t already have a pair.

High-quality images don’t always come from phones. For $96.35, consider the Canon PowerShot ELPH 180 the perfect gift for the graduate who wants to capture the memories. This device is available in silver for $99.99 and doubles as a video recorder.

With so much technology impacting our lives, why not add one more device? The Swagtron Swag BOARD EVO V2 is $128 and can make the trip to the kitchen fun for the graduate. Wrap them with bubble wrap, they could use all the help.

Nothing better than a watch that can do almost anything. The VIK SK3 smartwatch is a fitness tracker, heart monitor, sleep monitor, blood pressure monitor, blood oxygen monitor and it’s waterproof! Did I mention it also keeps track of time? Be sure to put it in your cart for $29.99.

Raise your hand if you bought more than one phone charger this year. At $11.12, the Wireless Charger can do away with all that travel for a charger. Simply place your phone on the charger and it will increase your phone’s battery life!
