LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- Nearly $5 billion is spent on gifts to grads. This graduation season, send them off on their next journey in life with everything they need. Larry Clark with Staples shared gift ideas on "THV 11 This Morning".

Keep Connected

Combine cool, new features with everyday computing. According to Student Monitor, 63 percent of student-owned computers are received as a gift or purchased by parents. Laptops from leading brands such as Toshiba®,HP®,Asus® and Lenovo® are perfect portable solutions to read a textbook online, get work done, play a game or video chat with friends and family in a dorm, around campus or in the classroom.

Keep it Portable

Tablets are quickly becoming the must-have accessories for today's tech-savvy grads. Whether note-taking in lectures, keeping up with student life via social media, or reading textbooks, tablets such as the Microsoft Surface Pro 2, Google™ Nexus 7, Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and Kindle Fire HD serve as great computing companions.

Keep in Touch

A welcome addition to a grad's arsenal of devices! Encourage your graduate to stay in touch and communicate with the latest smartphones updated with the newest operating system and apps from leading brands such as Samsung. And don't forget the portable phone chargers and accessories.
