An External Hard Drive
This is a great gift for those who plan on saving files that take up significant space. If you know that your gift recipient will be using both a Mac and PC, try to look for one that works with both right off the bat. He or she will have to reformat it if you get a model that works only with one OS if they plan on using it for both.
A Small Whiteboard
Whether it serves as reminders for important projects, or to let someone’s roommates know when they are around, a small whiteboard is a great thing to have if your gift recipient will live in a dormitory.
The person with the printer in their room will be the most popular person on their floor. If you know someone at college, ask them how tough it is to find a color printer the next time you see them.
A Reusable Water Bottle
Go eco-friendly! A reusable water bottle can be used both in and out of the office. Perfect for the person who is always on the go.
Planners go a long way, no matter what field your gift recipient works in. You can never have too many places to write down a schedule.
A Laptop Bag
The same backpack that got them through college might not work once they enter the “real world.” Consider gifting a laptop bag for them if their work is done on a computer.
Cross Cross Bailey Collection Ballpont pens provide one of the best writing experiences. They tend to write smoother and consistent messages, not leaving blotchy spots on the paper.
A Unique Desk Organizer
If your father/husband is always losing pens and other office supplies, consider getting him a unique organizer to keep things together.
A personal gift will always be something he will cherish. Go through memory lane and look at photos that you have of you and your father and find a nice frame for it.
