Mrs. Dairy Queen, I think you're trying to seduce me?

I was thrilled with $50 ten years ago when I got out of high school. You might have to add a little to that now because of inflation.

Why not get together with some others that intend to give him some $$ and start a trust that can only be used for college???

If it were my nephew, I'd only give him $50 cash, but I'd probably put in $500 if it was only for college...

Oh, and I'd kick him in the arse... :D

DOLLAR TREE, 2 cards for $1.00 or buy 1 card for $1.00 and get a card free , just send the free card to Gene next Mothers Day! :rolleyes: :D 8p
$50.25 [inflation] in the card you give nephew, for gas to find a summer job and a swift kick in the azz!

I gave him a hundred, and they had a killer buffet. My 2 14 y/o boys ate about 12 lbs worth of food, so I got some money back. Skipped the kick cause he's a little bigger that me. Thx!

With the kick, I'd tell him this is the "easy" part, just "try" dropping out and I'm going to bury this size 12...;)

I grad in HS in 2003 and the biggest amount I got from one person was around 50 and I was very happy with that don't forget your not the only one giving him money and it adds up quick.

SKIMC, handshakes are for businessmen. I still think an A$$ kick is in line. Very appropriate in my book. I should have had several when I graduated.

wow I feel cheap, we don't ever put that much in a card unless it is a brother or sister. I wish you all were my friends when I graduated, $20 was about all I got. Heck that was the stardard gift for my wedding $20 and I was happy with that!!

I gave my two closest relatives $100 each for their graduation. They should have just got a kick in the arse, it would have done them more good. :rolleyes:

You need to look at it this way. It's not what the kid deserves but how much an evening of gliding across glass waters is worth. Stay home, send more and enjoy!

Yea, whatever that means and a swift kick in the butt too, to get him on the glass waters!

For HS grad of family member I am still close to (i.e. see more than at the holidays and actually am part of their life) $100-$200. Those I no longer see anymore except for weddings/funerals/grad parties get $50.

The $100-$200 is definately with the stipulation that it is for school -- that's usually a strong verbal conversation with the receiver of the $$.

Biggest I got was $50 but that is coming up on 20 years ago...mostly got $20

We just shelled out $100 gift card for the girl next door's HS graduation... Gave a gift card to a place for her to buy stuff for her dorm room. If she wasn't going to college, it probably would have been less and cash... Not fair, i guess, but that's my 2 cents
