Your recent college debt-incurred grad will greatly appreciate any gifts of money. We suggest hiding the big bucks in a less obvious manner. One way is to give your grad a lei made out of money. You can easily determine how much money you wish to give and at the same time, have your grad model their new piece of fashion.

2. Get’em With the Goodies
