How many holiday gifts have you received that have lasted you since you were a kid? Not too many, I am guessing right? If you are like me, you have procrastinated in buying your gifts and you are looking for presents that don’t need to be mailed as it is most likely too late for shipping at this point. If you are planning to gift babies or kids, then how about gifting something you can put into every year? You’d never have to go searching for last minute presents or accused of procrastinating again; or at least for the next few years depending on the age of the child you are gifting. Plus, giving children the gift of their college education will provide them with a lifetime of benefits.  Signing up only takes about 10-15 minutes, so you can do it now and check one (or more) people off of your holiday shopping list.

You may be wondering what your options are, and what might be best for your situation. I’ve said it before, and I will say it again, my favorite Florida Prepaid College Savings Plan to feature is the 1-Year Florida University Plan.  Here’s why:

o   This plan allows multiple purchasers to buy a plan for the same child. So now you can team up with other family members to help pay for the child’s higher education.

  • For example, let Grandma and Grandpa buy one year and you purchase another. A child can have up to four 1-Year Florida University Plans
  • Great for gifting!!

o   It starts at under $50 a month!

o   You can purchase one year, or 30 credit hours, at a time according to your budget and timeline, without feeling the pressure of having to buy all four years at once.

There are a variety of other options, such as the 4-Year Florida University Plan, so if you want to contribute to a child’s education even more, you can.  At a time when so much in the world is uncertain, saving for college through Florida Prepaid College Plans is guaranteed and secure. It is certain – a way to ensure a child’s financial security.

My college education has been so important to my success. I only wish that one of my friends or family members gave me this type of gift when I was a kid. You have the opportunity now to do this for a child you know and love. I can almost guarantee it would be an unexpected, but meaningful present. And let’s not forget that when we give to others, we reap the joy of giving for ourselves.
