May and June are exciting months for college grads, parents, and relatives, as college graduates take that final walk across the stage and grab that much anticipated diploma.  Parents and relatives are so excited this year, that they are expected to reward the Class of 2012 with $4.7 billion in gift cards, cash, electronics, apparel and other presents.  Take a look at our graphical presentation of college gift giving trends and student loan debt, another gift that keeps on giving.  With an average 2010 student loan debt of $25,250 on the rise, college graduates may want to apply some of their cash rewards to their student loan debt.
