I think if its your close friend's son or daughter graduating high school a $50 gift and college $100. Or for college a $50 gift card plus another small gift so they have something else to open up. My friends daughter just graduated from college and I plan to get her a $50 gift card, a small piece of jewelry (maybe a trendy bracelet w/charm) and a book. It depends on the relationship you have with their child :))
. Thank you audio finally the answer I was looking for. I think 50 is the perfect amount to give to a friends child.0

What Ive found so interesting is that I have received invitations for graduation from people in my family and I would send them money but they then forgot how to write because I never received a thank you note. If they could send out the invitation you would think that if they were not brats they could have sent a thank you. If their mother was the one that sent out the invitations, then she should have also sent out the thank you cards. Does anyone else know people like this??

We just had a college graduation party for my daughter and she rec'd many gifts of $50 and above.
We are all in the North East and not Beverly Hills and many family members were extremely generous. It depends on the family/traditions and pocket book. Yes she did receive a few gift cards and smaller gifts below the $50 and ALL were appreciated. If you
attend, you should bring something...if you don't,
then a gift should not be necessary. Again, that
would depend on how close you are to the graduate.

My son is graduating from High School and has a lot of friends, I can't afford to send $50.00 to everyone, it would be like Christmas.
May a $25.00 gas card would be a good idea. At least it is something?
send your announcement first and see what gifts your son receives, this can help you gage your gifts. That's what I'm doing. Otherwise I'm sending 25.00. Especially to people I don't even see anymore. Good luck and congratulations.

Seventeen dollars if they are 17. They won't get no more money out of me then 18.00 if they are 18. I'm a tightwad. Kids are supposed to graduate and don't need gifts. Lol

My son is graduating from high school in a few weeks. He has been invited to many parties and has invited many to his own. He is our oldest and I am so unsure as to what to do about gifts. We are having a big open house party for him and potentially fifty kids and their families. I don't know what I should do about gifts.

I know he would appreciate monetary gifts, but what is appropriate with his friends? It seems odd to me to give a monetary gift to a friend, and have that friend's parent send him a monetary gift as well.

I certainly can't afford to give gifts to all of the kids he has stopping by the open house,but there are a few ( his 3 best friends and his girlfriend) I want to give to, but where do I draw the line?

Also, several of the parties are combination parties, one of which is his girlfriend's. I want to give her a gift but don't feel like I need to give the same to the other two girls, both of whom are good friends of my son.

Finally, one friend of mine said that if you get an invitation addressed to the family and not to the individual graduate, you should give a gift. If this is true, I'm in big trouble!

Thanks In advance for any help!

The best graduation gift I would give my kids would be to set them down and tell them how things REALLY are out here after they step off the stage after getting the diploma. Explain to them in a way the can understand and with a postitive but serious attitude about how brutal and unfair and unforgiving the Obama society, economy, job market, corruption and police state really is. Hide nothing, sugar coat nothing, beat around the bush none.
