Graduates are bound to be excited about the end of classes, but learning can actually be a lot of fun when it's self-directed and at their leisure. They might realize a few months out of school that they're actually a little starved for something new to think about, or they've just noticed that most people in the office continue to read (for pleasure and for advancing their career opportunities).
It’s time to prove once and for all who the best couch quarterback is. This smart football from Wilson can measure the stats of every throw.

Even if you’re just getting this gift for someone as a means to prove that you’re better than they are, it’s a killer gift.
We watch him sprint up the court, we wear his jersey. And finally, with Kobe Bryant's new memoir, we can get inside the mind of the legendary "Black Mamba". This lavish, analytical book takes a deep dive into how Bryant prepares for each game, including how he sizes up his opponents, how he gets through injuries, how he prepares each day both mentally and physically, and ultimately, how he has persevered and succeeded over his twenty-year career. For the true enthusiasts, beside each coffee table-worthy portrait is a breakdown of the play-by-play of his most historic court moments.
If your giftee is stuck in city slush, throughout the holiday season, bring the winter weather into their home with candles that exude a snowscape. Each of these three different scents is inspired by three of Washington’s national parks. Olympic smells of woodsy red cedar and oakmoss, Rainier of pine needles with a hint of citrus, and North Cascades of season-appropriate peppermint and rosemary. The thoughtful candles are hand-poured in Washington with 100% vegan soy wax and perfume-quality oils.
A cookbook is always a good gift for a beginner cook, and Amanda Cohen, chef and owner of Manhattan’s Dirt Candy, relied on this one when she was in college. “Will you ever cook from it? Well, I did when I was in university, and the approachable recipes were a great way to ease me into the kitchen,” she said, adding, “And for me, it’s almost like a scrapbook, reminding me of when I tried to make Gypsy Soup, of hours spent poring over the recipes for Vegetable and Walnut Pate, Stuffed Eggplant, and Lentil burgers, trying to figure out how to tweak these dishes to make them better, learning from what they were doing, and slowly, page by page, without even knowing it, becoming a chef.”
“Teeth are super important. Actually, there’s a huge correlation between gum disease and dying, and also, the condition of your gums and your teeth does predict a lot. So you might as well keep it healthy,” says Sachi D., a senior at Smith College who wants what the Cut’s Kathleen Hou called “a game-changing electric toothbrush.” According to Sachi, “I think it’s an underrated thing that people don’t pay attention to, and it’s actually really important … Or maybe I’m just a hypochondriac, and I’m afraid of dying.”
