What were your college graduation gifts?

post #1 of 77
Thread Starter 
I'm graduating from college tomorrow and every single one of my "gifts" thus far has been money. I'm not complaining, as I'd much rather receive cash than anything. So far received a couple grand, so I'm quite pleased I go to a school with a lottt of rich kids (know a kid who has a $10M trust fund), and I see kids wearing Pateks. What did you guys get?

I bought my godparents dinner at a fancy restaurant. I didn't get a card, but I got some phone calls to congratulate me. I think graduation gifts are exceedingly rare over here.

a caution to not screw up my life...I was a film major so job prospects equate to staring into the abyss to find my character.

I got about a thousand dollars cash for a trip to California from my parents, then some money and a few random gifts from family.

My wife got like five grand and a $12k set of pearls from her (crazy) parents.

Don't think I got anything special. For hs graduation I got a nice watch. My family is strange with gifts.

+1. College graduation irks me, almost as much as high school graduation. College graduation is not an accomplishment. It takes effort to flunk out of college. I don't expect a reward for passing a bunch of classes and drinking for four years. It is just such an overcelebrated, fake event that it just makes me feel uncomfortable.

A pat on the back. After high school, a graduation gift is as cheesy as hell.

Total sum of gifts for high school and graduation = the knowledge that I was now that much more employable + lunch. My family isn't much for making a big deal out of shit that I was plainly expected to accomplish.

That said, they kicked in five figures when I bought a house last year.
