    Buy annuities and/or gift the money to one another through gift funds. They are easy to research. Annuities have guaranteed payouts with many options (e.g. lump sums every so many years with "x" number of years with monthly payments in between). Insurance carriers can turn you on to them & run numbers for you - that's one source that's easy to access. The returns are great.

    Just a tip - the best investment you can make right now is in real estate. BUY BUY BUY. It appreciates much quicker and is whooping butt as far as any comparison to IRAs (although they're tax deductable up to $3000), stocks, annuities, mutual funds, bond, bills etc.
    In addition, the lower interest rates right now let you afford much more than you could normally. And ...... remember if you're worried about liquidity, you can always pull money out of real estate by borrowing against the property.
    I only wish I had this advice when I was younger.
