10 Graduation Gifts To Give To A Journalist Graduate

Know a graduating journalist and a bit unsure of what graduation gift you should get them? Heres my top ten gifts to buy a journalist graduate for their big day!

1. A Fancy Pen

Without a doubt, journalists are always writing and with a lot of writing comes a lot of inkless pens. A new pen is an ideal graduation gift and one that will contribute to their talent. For something a little different why not get them a more fancy pen to make a statement. After all graduation gifts are meant to highlight a milestone.

2. A notepad

Just like pens journalists always carry a notepad on them and can always do with a spare, I mean one notepad isn’t going to cut it when there’s a year worth of stories to report. With the many graduation gifts they may receive, why not make yours a little more memorable and get them a personalised notepad with their initials printed on it.

3. A planner

Out of the graduation gifts mentioned consider this one the most useful. Journalists can be chasing many stories at a time, and in most cases, they like to be prepared by writing in key dates for potential stories. So getting them a planner will only help them stay on top of things, and they will love you for it because they won’t have to go and get one themselves.

5. A Hard Drive

Graduation gifts don’t always need to be sentimental, a gift that will assist in ones passion is just as thoughtful. Journalists are always saving facts, photos, video footage and pieces of writings and sometimes that fills up their laptops hard drive. Therefore, a spare hard drive to back things up on will be very much appreciated by your graduating journalist.

6. A Good Book

As much as journalists love to write they love to read too. So why not expand their imaginative minds even more and give them a gift they are going to love, by buying them a new book. Try to strike up a conversation and find out what genre they love reading for leisure, and if you’re still stuck, you could always give them a voucher to a book store.

7. Good Pair Of Headphones

Nothing beats having your own equipment in the newsroom, so a good pair of headphones is just another asset amongst the graduation gifts. Especially, if you know a journalist who’s going more towards the broadcast or multimedia side of their field, they’re sure going to love a good pair of headphones.

8. A Camera

Out of many graduation gifts, a camera is one that can be used both for work and leisure, so ideally it ticks all the boxes. If you know your graduate is planning to do some freelancing to kick start their career, a camera is going to be the perfect gift. Or if their planning on some after study travel, they too are going to appreciate a camera to capture their memorable travel moments.

9. An Overnighter Bag

Some stories require traveling and if a journalist is working for a newsroom that chases on the go breaking news, sometimes they may have to pack their bags and board a plane immediately. Because journalists are aware of this, many have an already packed overnighter bag, so why not prepare your graduate by getting them one as a thoughtful graduation gift.

10. Sturdy Pair Of  Work Shoes

Lucky last I’ve included a pair of sturdy shoes. During my time chasing stories I’ve come to realise how important a good pair of shoes is to work in. Letting them choose a pair themselves than purchasing them is a nice way to say congratulations, I mean their about to walk a new path in life why not get them the right shoes to walk in.
