  1. A suggestion I’ve heard recently that I thought was a great idea was offering to match someone’s contributions to a Roth IRA for the first year. Obviously, this could end up costing nearly $3000 so I’d save it for children or grandchildren, but it could be a great gift to “prime the pump” toward getting a recent graduate excited about saving for retirement.
