Graduation season is here, which means you may find yourself in the awkward position of finding a gift for a niece, nephew, godchild or friend’s kid who you don’t really know and may not even like. Nevertheless, you have to come up with a winning gift.

Rather than roll the dice on a trendy gadget or – God forbid – something meant to be truly inspirational like “The Five People You Meet in Heaven,” give the graduate in your life something you know they can use: an Amazon Gift Card.

Available in increments of $50, $75, $100, $150 and $200, Amazon Gift Cards are great because the online retailer sells literally everything college-bound students need to succeed, from books and supplies, to dorm furnishings, groceries, computers and sound systems. Just in time for graduation season, the Amazon Gift Card now comes in a limited-edition commencement cap packaging. It’s the easiest gift you can buy — and one of the best ones they’ll receive.
