What gift, if any, should we bring for an 8th grader's graduation get together?

Asked by jca2 (8676points) 1 month ago

We’re friends with a mom and dad that have two daughters. One of the daughters is graduating from 8th grade. My daughter and I are invited to their house this evening, after dinner for cake and ice cream.

What’s a good gift we should bring? Money in a card? How much?

I searched for 8th grade grad gifts and the average price range was around a $20—$30 range, up or down either way.
They were selling everything from t shirts to jewelry but I’d probably go for cash in a card.

A gift card to Amazon. In the 1900’s, people use to give a matching Cross pen and pencil set, but kids don’t write much anymore.

A gift certificate to have a professional Portrait done in Graduation outfit or with her friends?

I was thinking $25 in a card.

I prefer to not give cash; however, I’ve found that most young people prefer cash to a gift they don’t like. At least with cash, they can put it together with other cash they receive & come closer to buying what it is that they do want. The least I put in a card is $20 & it goes up from there depending on how well I know them or their family. A lot also has to do with how the child acts around me. Smart mouthed, disrespectful brats get less than those who know how to treat their elders.

As long as its useful, cute and maybe sparkly, other than that if all fails a gift card won’t hurt.
