The University of Colorado at Boulder's commencement ceremony took place on Saturday, where grads laughed in the face of swine-flu fears with a little help from Purell. But the folks at Boulder's Cloud 9 Living, which specializes in "world-class experience gifts," know that plenty of other schools will be sending matriculators off into an uncertain world in the coming days and weeks -- hence its list of suggested presents "Grandma Can Look Cool Giving." Here's their top ten:
1. Indoor Skydiving ($70)
2. Scuba Diving Lesson ($50)
3. Surfing Lessons ($100)
4. Segway Tour ($90)
5. Stock Car Ride Along ($119)
6. Scenic Glider Ride ($100)
7. Indoor Rock Climbing ($90)
8. Private DJ Lessons ($135)
9. Tandem Paragliding ($100)
10. Wine Tasting & Goblet Making ($90)
