Grad gift ideas

Give the grad in your life something that will last (and be useful) for their college years. 
Mom and dad Whether traveling hundreds of miles or a short 10-minute commute, your college grad will need reliable transportation to and from school. Consider investing in their mobility and independence with the gift of a down payment. Dealerships can help stretch your down payment dollar and make financing simple for your credit-challenged graduate. 
Aunt and uncle Some graduates have their sights set on a summer of international travel, while others are focused on packing up and starting college life. Regardless, a new luggage set is a great, practical gift. Instead of hitting the department store and maxing out your budget on one piece, check out sites like for highly discounted luggage sets. 
Best friend If your bestie's future includes long distance calls from rivaling colleges, make the distance seem less with the gift of video chat. A webcam is the perfect gift to let your friend know that no matter the distance, your friendship will never falter. If your friend is a bit more technologically challenged, consider creating a visual record of your friendship with a memory book. 
Future roomie Prepare for late night study sessions and early morning exams with the gift of caffeine. Not only will your rookie be bright eyed and ready to embrace the day, but s/he may even share! 
Former student For years you gave them the gift of knowledge and inspiration, so continuing with tradition; a book with a nice personalized inscription is the perfect present. Some grad favorites include Oh the Places You’ll Go by Dr. Seuss, The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch or Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom.
