Because growing up is overrated.

Although one chapter is ending and a new one begins, graduates shouldn’t lose sight of their passion for pop culture. After all, movies like Star Wars inspired them to dream, and video games like Zelda encouraged them to fight for what they love.

Congratulate your favorite new scholar with a gift that celebrates their big, adult brain and their childlike heart.

1) Darth Vader pen holder

ThinkGeek

Young adults must learn to fight the Dark Side, and by Dark Side, we mean student debt. Your lack of funds may be truly disturbing, but the galaxy is a little bit brighter with Darth holding a lightsaber on your desk.

2) Justice League business card case

ThinkGeek

Networking never really gets more enjoyable, but this embossed metal business card holder will help them find like-minded superheroes without saying a word.

3) Legend of Zelda journal

ThinkGeek

Figuring out what you’re supposed to do with the rest of your life puts a lot of weight on one’s shoulders. Grads without a fairy to guide them will have to rely on their own voice.

4) Tyrion Lannister T-shirt

HBO

Congratulate your favorite grad with a shirt that explains exactly what 4+ years of college granted them.

5) Silicon Valley poster

HBO

A slogan from a company that’s struggling to function doesn’t exactly inspire greatness, but perhaps it will serve as a reminder to not follow in their footsteps.

6) Heat-changing Player 1 mug

ThinkGeek

College was kind of like defeating the mini-boss. The rest of the game is still ahead, and it requires just as much coffee.

Price on ThinkGeek: $11.99

7) Lego pen

ThinkGeek

Every graduate needs a nice pen, for some reason. While most tend to hold onto this gift for dear life because of the price, this one is less expensive, but it’s seriously too cool to lose.

8) Hermoine’s time turner necklace

ThinkGeek

Most grads will be feeling awfully sentimental in the days leading up to commencement. This 24 karat-plated necklace won’t actually change time, but it’ll remind them to hold onto those great memories.

Price on ThinkGeek: $49.99

9) Game of Thrones letter openers

ThinkGeek

Like a Lannister, responsible adults must always pay their debts. At least opening bills will be a little more fun with a miniature Longclaw or Ice.

10) Starfleet Academy graduate certificate

ThinkGeek

While they wait to receive their diploma, give them one that earns them significant bragging rights. It comes nicely framed.
