That said, you could get book gifts that provide the sort of education schools don’t provide. Some are about life hacks that teach valuable skills. Others work on his personality to make him a better person while giving him important tools to face life as an adult.
As an adult, the friends and social connections he makes would play a huge role in his life going forward. Any gift that helps him make new friends or strengthen the bond with old friends would be awesome.
Examples of gifts in this category include multi-player video games, cameras, and party games.

Gift for 18 Year Old Boy Who Has Everything?
This is where getting a gift can be tricky: how do you know he doesn’t already have your preferred choice of gift? One way to resolve this is to simply ask him. With a bit of thought, you can easily find other ways to tackle the issue.
Choosing the latest tech gadgets, video games, clothes, and shoes is another way of overcoming this problem. It is very unlikely he’d have the latest items in those categories.
Again, you could aim for the accessories of the things he has already. Accessories are awesome mostly because they provide new options for enjoying old gifts.

That said, customizing gift items with printed words to make it clear it is a graduation gift is a cool way to make any gift idea to be graduation-specific. The item doesn’t have to be expensive; even a coffee mug can cut it perfectly well with the right words engraved on it.
