It’s that time of year when people celebrate graduation. While MBAs make big bucks postgraduation, they still enjoy a surprise gift from loved ones in honor of commencement. So, what should you get an MBA who will likely be able to soon afford anything he or she wants?

We recently posed that question to participants of the Bloomberg Businessweek Business School Forums. And their answers provided at least a few creative ideas. Alex Chu, founder of MBA admissions consultant MBA Apply, suggested a job. Or courtside Lakers tickets. Or a share of Facebook. Still, there is always room for more suggestions. Visit the “Graduation Gifts?” discussion thread to share what you would like to give or receive for graduation.

Editor’s Note: This blog post is part of a series about discussions taking place on the Bloomberg Businessweek Business School Forums, where prospective MBA program applicants, current students, and recent alumni trade admissions tips, job hunting advice, and the occasional barbed comment. We invite you to join these discussions or start one of your own.
