The 'The Gifts Grads Get' infographic assures those who have recently escaped the clutches of education that there is more to look forward to than the sweet taste of freedom.

Grads will be happy to know that the most common forms of gifts are presented as cash or at least gift cards, so there will be no need for a rush refund trip. Also good to know is that despite recessionary woes, people are feeling more generous than ever, with the total value of presents received reaching an all-time high at $4.74 billion.

Although that seems like quite the hefty number, it is important to remember that compared to student debt, these small consolations do not compare. Do not indulge purely on whim!
