The Coolest Amazon Graduation Gifts Your Friends & Family Will Love This Year

No matter who you’re celebrating this season, this list checks all the boxes. Every graduation event is called something different, but they’re basically all doing the same thing: letting half-developed brains throw pointy objects in the air and hoping they don’t take out grandma in the back.

Spikeball Pro Kit – featured on Shark Tank!

Go play outside! The first edition was fun, but this pro kit is way better. Believe me when I say pretty much every teenager from coast to coast loves this game. 

The smarties at Spikeball gave it an upgraded stronger playing net, a stronger frame, pro top spin balls, smooth collapsible legs, a ball pump and gauge, and a portable backpack. This is the perfect game to take to the beach, the park, and college! *Check out super fun Spikeball here*

Dare to Lead, by Brené Brown

If you’ve never heard of this incredible woman, I would highly recommend you start following her work. She is one of the main voices on the cutting edge of leadership, vulnerability, and bravery.

In the midst of her research, she found that leaders in organizations ranging from small entrepreneurial startups and family-owned businesses to nonprofits, civic organizations, and Fortune 50 companies all ask the same question: “How do you cultivate braver, more daring leaders, and how do you embed the value of courage in your culture?”

Even if your grad isn’t entrepreneurial, this is a great gift addition for anyone with the potential to be a great leader. *Check out the inspirational Dare to Lead book here*
