5 Gift Ideas for the Recent Grad in Your Life

The tassel was worth the hassle and now it’s time to celebrate the recent grad in your life. After so much studying, it seems the most obvious reward would be a nice massage or a long nap. However, at CREDO Mobile, we believe working to advance progressive causes for the next generation is the most valuable gift of all. Here’s some ideas to help do just that plus some other picks from like-minded companies:

Camp Wellstone 
Arm your loved one with practical skills to set progressive political concerns into action. Camp Wellstone (CW) trains people interested in leading progressive political change — from aspiring candidates to campaign organizers. Topics including progressive public policy, grassroots community organizing and grassroots electoral politics shape help shape the curriculum.

Membership at a Local Museum or Gallery
Get your recent grad out and exploring! With many local museum or gallery memberships, benefits include early admission hours or sneak peeks at new exhibitions. Purchasing a membership not only grants the recipient easy access to history and art, it also helps support local institutions preserving both. That’s a win-win.

Green Kitchen Accessories
Paper plates are totally unsustainable. Outfit this recent grad with products that are both environmentally- and human-friendly. All items available to purchase from The Ultimate Green Store — including a bamboo kitchen starter set, a set of ceramic cereal bowls, and more — are BPA-free. Much of the glassware is recycled, with the option to customize with a name or logo, to boot.

Vinyl Me Please Record of the Month Club membership for the College Graduates
Nothing complements the warmth of an analogue recording like a sophisticated custom cocktail recipe. VMP creates a tasty cocktail inspired by each month’s selected record and sends both the recipe as well as an LP to members, along with an original art print. Past featured records include Fiona Apple’s Tidal, Panda Bear’s Person Pitch and more.

Hipcamp Gift Certificate
Counteract years under the library’s fluorescent lights with some wholesome outdoor fun. Hipcamp is a comprehensive campsite booking company with locations at all national, state, regional and Army Corps parks across the United States. With 291,566 campsites in 50 states to choose from, your recent grad can make it a quick weekend trip or a winding, cross-country venture!

CREDO Mobile Phone and Service
Set up your loved one with a CREDO Mobile device and service. Not only do they get coverage on the nation’s largest, most dependable 4G LTE network, your purchase helps fund a number of vital progressive nonprofits like Planned Parenthood and ACLU. Choose from a selection of data plans, including our new Unlimited Plan which offers limitless data and talk & text.
