Nothing says “you’re a grownup now” like a coloring book, right? If you’re looking for a fun gift for a graduate in your life, this set of 100 colored gel pens from Smart Color Art is sure to be a gift that keeps giving, especially if you bundle it with an adult coloring book or two.
Amazon’s practically giving away the best-selling Smart Color Art gel pen set for $14.99 (it usually costs $75). And there are countless adult coloring books to choose from that are all around $5, so you’re sure to find one that suits your graduate’s tastes. Give them a classic mandala coloring book ($4.99) or go the funny route and choose a coloring book filled with swear words ($3.95).
Coloring has therapeutic effects that can help ease stress and improve moods. Whether your grad is headed off to college or making their way into the career world, there’s no doubt they’ll need all the stress-relief they can get, and you can give them a fun way to unwind and stay in touch with their inner child. They also pair perfectly with a graduation gift card so you can shower your grad with appreciation but still give them a present to open at their party.
