Students get a lot of love when it comes to special deals, but often recent graduates are just as poor. Thankfully, Microsoft has some sales on for the graduation season that should help with gifts and devices for the working world.
The Graduation Gift Guide is aimed at parents who want to reward their children for their accomplishment. Writing on the Windows blog, Editor-in-Chief Mollie Ruiz-Hopper explains:
“Graduation is a milestone in one’s life. It signals the end of an era – and the beginning of something new. Starting April 24 through June 18, Microsoft Store is offering great savings on Surface devices, select Windows 10 PCs, VR headset, headphones and more to help the grad in your life celebrate with a gift that can help them tackle everything that lies ahead.”

As Hopper mentions, Microsoft has launched sales on products across the board. There are both productivity elements and simple gifts. Here are some of the best deals:

Though not on the scale of many of Microsoft’s sales, there are clearly some good deals to be had here. It’s an especially good day for those looking to get into VR. Every VR PC purchase gets a $200 voucher for the HTC Vive.
Though it’s for graduates, there’s nothing to stop everyone taking advantage of this sale. It could be a good time to buy an early birthday present or treat yourself to a Surface Book.
You can view the deals yourself on the Microsoft Store.
