My cousin is graduating from college (Harvard, with Honors!) next month, and I received an announcement in the mail. Since she is ten years younger than me, we've never been super close, although her parents have been good to me over the years. In the past, I've always given $25 for my cousin's grad gifts. My Mom indicated that this was "cheap." But until recently, $25 was within our budget. Now, we could afford a little more. Should I stick the standard, or bump it up a notch?
Since this is the season of graduations and weddings, how do you handle the influx of announcements and invites?
