How much money do you give for a Graduation Gift?
How much money to give is a tricky question that we all struggle over. The answer to that question depends on how close you are to the grad, what educational milestone they’ve achieved, and other personal factors.
Don’t assume that a cash gift will be too impersonal – many young grads prefer to receive money because they’ve got a lot of new expenses as they start the next chapter of their lives. The National Retail Federation says that more than 50% of people give cash.
If you aren’t that close to the graduate, you might give a gift of money ranging from $20 to $50. A coworker, neighbor, or family friend might also give an amount in that range. If you’re closer, you might give more in the $50 -$100 range. Parents or grandparents, for example, would give $100 or more.
That said, it all depends on finances and your personal situations. How much you give comes down to how much you are comfortable giving. Any amount you give will be appreciated.
I hope you love these money gift ideas they are creative ways to give cash and help you celebrate your graduate…
