Momma Told Me: The end of one journey begins another.

I graduated at 16. I was the youngest of my class and , by far, the one with the least direction moving forward. I had graduated early an with accolades but hardly had any idea what I wanted to do with the rest of my life. At the time Art School seemed like a fitting rebellion against the studies I had been subject to the previous 12 years. I recall, even in 'my time' graduation wasn't quite what it is today. Our school gathered on the football field and all 256 of my graduating class marched across a very shaky and old stage set with a podium. My parents had recently filed for divorce, and neither side could quite agree who would be present in the face of the other, so my support group was much smaller than those of my friends. To me, the whole ordeal was a non-event.

Today it seems that even Kindergarten matriculation is being called graduation- children who spent the last year learning to finger-paint get caps and a ceremony with a certificate. As adorable as that is, it kind of stains the importance and celebration of someone who has stuck out all of their K-12 years and made plans to further their future with job training or a secondary education. Let's face it, no matter your age, graduation is a bit scary. Whether you're leaving high school for a University, or leaving college to, well, pay off those school loans, graduation marks the turning of a stage in one's life. It should be celebrated.

Just two years back my youngest cousin finished her final year of private school and began an engineering degree that to this day makes my head spin. We hosted a big celebration and a mountain of gifts were bestowed upon her, in addition to a box full of cards with cash. Graduates have expenses, yes, but most grads won't be tempted to turn those checks into valuable assets (pizza and beer here they come!) I buy many of my yearly gifts at Best Buy, there simply is no other place with the hottest tech and media products and an reassuring Price Match Guarantee. Best Buy even has a great Gifts For Grads Guide to help you determine your grads needs (Fitness Fanatic, Networker, or Moving Out) and match them with a valuable gift that will aid them on their journey ahead.

A close friend of our family has a daughter heading off to college this fall who will not only be Moving Out for the first time, but is also always connected with her friends across the nation, and her family in Mexico. As a big Networker she needs reliable technology that will keep her connected to her WiFi network while about campus and away from her dorm, as well as powerful chargers and battery packs to keep her devices running. Her mother didn't even know such things existed until I pulled up the Mophie 32GB Space Pack Case and Charger, perfect for storing data an charging her daughter's iPhone 5. This unique case is essentially an expansion pack for your smartphone, and the perfect way for new grads to keep track of all those meticulous notes (or meticulous blackmail photos) and keep their phone charged when out at a long day full of classes.

Just check out some of the other great finds for the Networker Grad, at Best Buy:
  • iPhone 5s
  • Lenovo Yoga 2 13" Touch-Screen Laptop
  • SONOS Play:1 Wireless Speaker for Streaming Music
  • SanDisk Connect 32GB USB 2.0 Wireless Flash Drive
