With this gift, your grad is sure to start each day with a smile.
A used — but reliable — car.
Whether you’re buying a brand-new Toyota Corolla from a dealership or a used Lexus for sale at an auction mall, a new car means one thing for a recent grad: freedom. Because cars can come with a lot of responsibility, grabbing one for your grad before they embark on the next stage in life can prepare them for the other responsibilities they’ll encounter down the road. It’s a great way to educate them about financial authority while also offering a sense of ownership. If buying a car is the route you’ve chosen, it’s a great idea to bring your grad along for the purchase. It’s a fantastic way of showing them how proud you are of them and how working hard can have its rewards.

From music (via iTunes, Spotify, or Pandora) to movies (companies such as Amazon Prime Video or Hulu), a streaming service is available for just about anything. There’s also Sling TV, which allows users to stay in-the-know about their favorite shows.

Prices start as low as $8 for television streaming source for Hulu, and can climb as high as $119 for Amazon Prime, which would award your grad both music and television streaming.
