Umm…my parents paid for my rent for the next two years while I was in grad school. Pretty good present ๐Ÿ™‚ I didn’t get anything tangible like what you mean though, but all those options sound nice!

I got a beautiful watch:

The face is reversible and the  back has my monogram on it. I absolutely love it.

I think I got about $300 from my dad and his parents.  My Mother-In-Law (then FMIL) gave me a travel bag.  My grandmother gave me a blank check to pay for my first student loan payment because she kept asking what I wanted and I never told her.

I got a pat on the back and a nice dinner ๐Ÿ™‚ My parents were having a really hard time financially and had to fly down to come to my graduation, I was just happy they came.

I was supposed to get the Adobe Creative Suite, but my mom forgot and no amount of reminding her really worked, so I just let it go since now she’s paying for the wedding. My sister got an iPod, so that’s an idea, too.

I think from your list, the pearls sound great. That’s something that you could keep forever, really.

I got a Canon G11. My birthday was a week before I graduated, so this worked as a combination present (and one that I’ll definitely use for a long time!).
