Stadiums and arenas across the country will be booked with commencement ceremonies through May and June. Millions of high school and college students will walk across the stage and accept diplomas this year in front of proud parents, friends and loved ones. And more people than ever will turn to the Internet to shop for their perfect graduation gifts.
WildBlue Deals, an authorized dealer for WildBlue Communications – a leader in high-speed satellite Internet - offers the following tips for finding thoughtful, affordable graduation gifts online.
Technology: What better way to start a new chapter in life than with a shiny new laptop, phone or television? Shopping for technology online gives customers access to information and reviews that brick-and-mortar retailers have a hard time matching. Check out review and consumer watch sites to compare prices and specifications in detail. And look for additional deals such as promo codes, free shipping or rebates.
Jewelry: Watches and engraved jewelry are classic graduation gifts, and shoppers can find big savings with online stores. Retailers who don’t have to maintain storefronts can often pass those operational savings on to customers. Sites like bluenile.com offer high quality options, overnight shipping and generous return policies for easy exchanges and refitting.
Keepsakes: Picture-perfect memories have never been easier to capture. Thanks to online stores such as snapfish.com, digital photo albums can be transformed into a variety of gifts with the click of a mouse. Simply upload photos and turn them into DVDs, bound books, t-shirts, coasters or a variety of other options ranging from sentimental to hilarious.
Luggage: Briefcases and bags are practical gifts that give graduates a head start into the professional world. Of course, quality is of the utmost importance. Explore online designer discounts at shops like bluefly.com to get the brands that will endure.
Gift cards: When in doubt, gift cards are a sure-fire way to put a smile on a graduates face. Universal gift cards can be found through sites like giveanything.com, while online retailers such as Barnes and Noble, Amazon or even iTunes offer ways to prepay for items without leaving the comfort of home.
Of course, before purchasing online make sure the Internet connection being used is secure. Dial-up customers may want to switch to high-speed satellite Internet, which offers great speeds and security and can reach even the most remote areas.
