Although the ceremonies may look drastically different from prior years, college graduations are already taking place, with high schools right behind them! If you have any advertisers selling any of the following brands, this is a great time to advertise these potential “graduation gifts”.

With everything that has happened in the world the past 13 months, a lot of younger people are rethinking jumping into college right away. The intention is to go to college but take a gap year (very common in Europe) to do a bit of traveling. A great gift for your traveling graduate would be luggage. Just a couple of the brands that offer co-op are:

  • JanSport (Daypacks, Backpacks, Frame Packs and Mountain gear for your “hikers”)
  • Briggs & Riley (traditional luggage)

In staying with the travel theme, perhaps you want to treat your graduate to a cruise and possibly take the entire family to create long-lasting memories. A couple great cruise lines that offer co-op funding are:

  • Cunard Cruise Lines
  • Princess Cruises

Another great graduation gift would be a piece of jewelry or timepiece. This is something that will last forever that your graduate may be able to pass down to their children, years down the road. Just a few of the brands offering co-op are:

  • Commemorative Brands – ArtCarved Class Rings
  • Hearts on Fire Diamonds
  • Le Vian
  • Citizen Watch Company of America, Inc.
  • Seiko Corporation of America

If you really want to go big for your graduate, how about a new car? Whether your graduate is going off to college, doing some cross-country traveling, or already starting a full-time job, it would be good to know they are in a safe vehicle that has warranty coverage. There are tons of affordable brands like the Buick Encore GX, Chevy Trailblazer, and the entry-level Mini Cooper. The Co>Op Connect database contains the co-op programs for General Motors (both Buick and Chevrolet), along with MINI USA. Here are a couple more automotive brands that also offer co-op:

  • FCA – Chrysler
  • FCA – Jeep
  • Mazda
