As your son or daughter prepares to graduate from college this month, it's time to think about a graduation gift. And the gift you give them might help them get started in the workforce.

Money is an obvious option, but there are plenty of other more creative choices.

One tip, if your graduate has not yet landed a job, you may want to consider purchasing a resume app. There are plenty in the app store. The services can help users build, design, and generate a professional-looking resume they can send out directly from their phones.

Now, if your grad does have a job, how about a new work bag. Throwing out the old backpack, and buying them a messenger or tote bag will give them a nice little upgrade for the professional world.

Also, give your graduate an online subscription to an app that may help them navigate their new work life -- specifically some sort of news app. But also, a classic book will do as well, as long as it's relevant to the field in which your graduate is looking into.

While a tie or dress socks may seem a little old fashion for a gift idea, both are still trusty options.
