    Ideas for a college graduation gift?

    Hey all, looking for ideas on a college graduation gift for my sister in law. She was into music/arts.

    I'll get the typical responses (and I'm usually one of the smart-*****) out of the way that says this: beer, hookers, cocaine, etc.

    So what are good ideas, that someone would actually use?

    Hookers and blow (had to).


    Other than that money is always good for paying off loans.

    Concert tickets? A weekend on you for her to visit museums and such in Chicago or something?

    Kinda depends on your budget too.

    Yep, we need a budget. And ask your bro for help if you need to.

    So my brother-in-law will graduate this spring and he is in to hockey like there is no tomorrow. My wife and I decided to take him to his first NHL game and got him premium seats along with a hotel room and gas money to get there. If she is into music/arts...maybe there is a concert she would love in the area. Maybe tickets to 80/35 and hotel room. If you want to drop some cash there is Lollapalooza over the summer in Chicago. She would love that.

    Re: Ideas for a college graduation gift?

    I volunteer for the city observatory and it's amazing to see people asking "can I see my star ?" and when they showed the location of the star, turned out that the star can only be seen from the SOUTHERN hemisphere or the star is actually very dim that can't be seen

    Plus, it's not official, although it's fun. More about this

    While I know the poster was asking for a college graduation gift, here is a great gift for high school graduates on the way to college....written by two ISU grads.
