Is Money A Proper Gift?

by Ron
(St. Louis, MO)

Good Morning;

My wife and I are going to a party for my best friend's son who is going into the Air Force. Is it proper to give a gift or money for such an event? We went to his High School graduation a few years ago and gave money then. My wife says no. What's Miss Manner's say?

Thank you
R.D.

p.s. this party is tomorrow

Gift NEW
by: Anonymous

Money, too, is a gift, and should be considered, just, as important as any other gift of any kind (gift card, gift, etc.). Whether or not one should give a gift to some one else depends on the relationship and the occasion.

Gift or Money for a send off to the military service NEW
by: Anonymous

I agree, no money or gift is necessary. Many things can happen while in basic training. If you feel the need to extend a gift, I suggest a gift or money after the graduation ceremony.

No, money is not a gift. It is rather a support. Some people may get offended.
