My stepniece is graduating college this weekend and just sent me an invite. Obviously can't go because of distance and short notice, so I figure she's fishing for gift. Question to you ladies:

I would do max $50, when I graduated I expected nothing from anyone so don’t feel obligated


Donate to a good cause she may like in her name. I wouldn’t like it if a relative I knew was fishing for a gift...


Yeah, honestly, a card. You could include a $10 starbucks gift card for “studying” or a $20 Bed Bath and Beyond one for her dorm or nothing. I think you’ll be fine

What's an appropriate amount? I babysat her a lot as a teen but we aren't super close now. I also don't make bank yet since I'm in CBS, so I'm not sure what's a good amount to spend.

And would you do gift card? Cash

$50 cash

Send her a card. Gift not required. Unless y’all are super close??
