Here at GradHacker, we all have things that we want and that we think are great gifts for grads. From some of our authors, here are our suggestions for last minute gifts for grads. These include great on the go gifts like Reusable, BPA-free food storage containers for transporting left-overs from home to campus. An attractive journal made of recycled and/or sustainable materials to use for recording ideas whenever the muse strikes. Kindle, iPad, or tablet case for added protection and durability. Some of our favorite music and book selections. And tech stuff that every grad student needs like a subscription to Dropbox. Instead of trying to select a band, consider giving a yearly subscription to Pandora or Spotify, so your grad student can pick their own tunes! Suggestions by Amy Rubens, Julie Platt, Katy Meyers, Terry Brock, and Trent Kays Happy Holidays!!

My big hope is that you will share. Generating this list was easy for me, as Amazon provides a list of all Audible and Kindle purchases under "Manage Your Kindle" and then view "All Items." The ability to quickly view (and share) my reading history is one of the benefits I see in buying (or borrowing) digital books.   I'm not sure how to generate such a list for Nook or Kobo folks.
