Some of our favorite graduation gifts are the ones that serve truly practical purposes, like these hangers from Bend & Hook that are designed with a steel wire core that can hold up to 20 pounds—meaning it’s safe to hang anything from a suit to a heavy winter coat, or even double-stack your outfits when closet space is tight. The Perfect Hanger is also designed to resist dreaded shoulder bumps and keep straps from stretching and slipping.
Perfect Hanger, $49.99 for 24-pack, bendandhook.com.
