Trustees and Certificates of Deposit
Certificates of deposit are often given as gifts from a grandparent to a grandchild, with the intention of having the grandchild receive the money, with interest, when she reaches a certain age. The CD might be given to a grandchild with an adult named as trustee until the child is of age to receive the money.
