New graduates may find themselves with a fair bit of time on their hands, and they may be looking for things to do now that they’re going off to college or starting their adult lives. Hobbies are not only great ways to pass the time but also help you find like-minded people who could become lifelong friends. We’ve put together a list of gifts for graduates of high school or college, based around hobbies. Some of these items can be found here on Original Hobby, while others are more general hobby supplies.

For this blog post, we’re going to think about a few team-building activities and how they might be altered or improved with wooden puzzles.
In previous posts, we’ve discussed how a pool player and an aspiring curler might enjoy the 19th-century Canadian table sport crokinole. As part of this series where we try to convince everyone to play crokinole, we thought we’d aim for shuffleboard players next.
