What is an appropriate amount to spend on a graduation gift?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on May 13, 2008
“An appropriate amount would be $50, but being a broke college student myself, I would go with $20 plus drinks for the night.”
“Well, since I’m graduating, as much as they can afford.”
“I think if it’s your parents, it should be around $500. If it’s a good friend or sibling, then it should be about $100.”
“I’d say $50. It’s not too much but not too little. They can buy something nice without putting a dent in your bank account.”
