Even though I haven't been blogging I still am reading some of my favorite blogs. J.Money over at Budgets are Sexy had a great post a few days ago about giving $100 as a gift for weddings, birthdays, etc. This post struck a cord with me because several people I know have gotten married, are getting married, having showers, graduating, getting older, etc.
I always wonder how much I should give as a gift at these events, and recently I have just started giving $100.00. My fiance's step brother got married, I gave them $100.oo as a gift, my mother in law's birthday was last week, I gave her two $50.00 gift cards. Two of my siblings have birthdays coming up, guess what their gift will be??? If you guessed $100 you are correct.
I think $100 is a reasonable amount to give for any special occasion.
If you give monetary gifts how much do you give and why?
until next time, think prosperous thoughts
