What do grads want this year? Cash, please. Cash over gifts is preferred to help kick off their new life (or help pay down those student loans!).
So how much?
According to SavingAdvice.com, it depends. High school grads should get up to $100. Where college grads should get anywhere from $100 to $500.
Are you expected to give a gift? If you receive a graduation announcement, then no, but if you receive a party invite, then yes.
