You might try a Treasury bond ladder, though you can do better in interest on CDs, but, if held to maturity, Treasuries are just as safe.

I don't know how easy it is to set up a corporate bond ladder, but I presume it can be done. And if it is possible to do this with bonds of AAA ratings, you would be pretty safe. To get a decent return, however, you have to go far out )20-30 yrs).
